Positive Grid has announced the release of BIAS Desktop, a groundbreaking guitar amp modeler with Amp Matching technology that offers an entirely new concept of putting any tube amplifier tone and feel into a plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Positive Grid BIAS

BIAS Desktop features the most accurate, thorough and versatile guitar-amp modeler and designer engine, and it can accurately capture the tone of any tube amplifier, users can then share or download amp models from BIAS’s built-in ToneCloud® amp-sharing platform.

“Instead of providing a fixed number of amp models, BIAS Desktop represents an entire new concept on guitar sound: guitar players can now virtually design their own amps, using Amp Matching Technology to capture their golden tube amplifiers,” says BIAS Product Manager Calvin Abel, “and finally they can share or download thousands of amp models on ToneCloud, also we are currently working with worldwide artists and studios to expand this platform.”

The Amp Matching™ in BIAS Desktop utilizes a collection of underlying technologies that analyze and compare a currently designed BIAS amp model with the sound of any tube amp, the corresponding cabinet and microphone. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancement needed to make this current amp model accurately match the target amplifier. For the first time in history, guitar players are free to design, modify and capture the most unique and individual soul of tone, into the digital domain and keep it ready for studio recording applications.

Built-in with BIAS, ToneCloud allows guitar players to share their custom amp models and download over thousands custom BIAS amps created by other users — including signature recording artists. Guitar players can share and download not just customized amp models only, using Amp Matching, every possible amp tone ever created becomes available. Positive Grid is currently working with worldwide artists and engineers to create professional custom amp models and studio amp matched models to expand this platform.

BIAS Desktop features

  • The most complete, accurate, and versatile amp modeling software available in the world.
  • 36 HD amp models included with the introductory release.
  • Amp Matching captures any miced amp or recorded track and creates a matched model.
  • Share and download thousands of artist- and user-created and matched amp models on ToneCloud.
  • Fully customizable preamps, tone stacks, power amps, transformers, cabinets and mic selection and placement—mix and match!.
  • Customize the look and feel of your own amp panel; change the name, tolex, panel and knobs..
  • Works the way guitarists think: tweak gain and overdrive, swap out tubes and transformers, change the cabinet and mic position, and shape the tone with different tone stacks and two 8-band equalizers.
  • Included noise gate and room simulator.
  • Create a virtually unlimited number of custom amps.
  • Quick preset facility recalls each of your 8 favorite settings in turn with just one tap.

BIAS Desktop is available for purchase for $99 USD (includes all amp design modules and access to ToneCloud to download thousands of amp models). BIAS Professional is priced at $199 USD, and adds Amp Matching Technology, Exclusive Amp Matching Models on ToneCloud, and three Amp Design Expansion Packs (Glassy Pack, Crunch Pack and Insane Pack).
