Positive Grid launches JamUp Plug HD interface for iOS

Positive Grid JamUp Plug HD

Positive Grid has introduced the JamUp Plug HD, a professional studio quality guitar and bass interface for use with recording and performance apps on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

“Mobile guitar players are becoming more and more sophisticated every day,” notes Positive Grid Product Manager Calvin Abel. “What started out as amp/effects emulator apps—mainly used to practice at home—have now evolved into a whole new generation of professional tools for working musicians on the go. For guitarists that are particular about their sound, tone and expression, our new JamUp Plug HD ensures that signals are converted with the utmost depth and dynamics as well as least noise.”

Perfect for rehearsing, performing and recording alike, the ultra-compact, pocket-sized device improves on Positive Grid’s preexisting JamUp Plug by offering a pristine 24-bit/48kHz USB digital audio solution. The improved resolution significantly enhances signal-to-noise ratio (98 dB RMS), completely eliminating any feedback issues and bringing the manufacturer’s JamUp and BIAS apps to their full potential.

Equipped with a 1/4-inch input jack and 1/8-inch output connector for headphones or powered speakers, the JamUp Plug HD also features an input level control and three-color LED for quick visual monitoring. A green LED indicates that the JamUp Plug HD is connected, ready and working with the software; orange means that the signal level has been optimized for the instrument; and red warns that the input level is too high.

JamUp and JamUp Pro XT users will discover rich, crystal clear tone when plugged into the JamUp Plug HD. But they’re not alone. The flexible interface was also designed for maximum compatibility with numerous other mobile processing and recording apps, including GarageBand, AmpliTube, AmpKit, Auria, Cubasis, Audiobus, Loopy and more.

With its highly responsive circuitry, Positive Grid’s new interface allows musicians to “crank it up” and be ready to rock on literally any current iOS device. Docking directly with the iPhone 4/4s, iPod Touch 4, and iPad 2/3 via its 30-pin connector, the JamUp Plug HD also supports newer iOS devices via Apple’s 30-pin to Lightning adapter.

JamUp Plug HD features

  • Studio grade digital audio interface for iPad and iPhone.

Positive Grid launches BIAS amplifier modeler & designer app for iPad

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 13, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Positive Grid has announced the launch of BIAS, the world’s most complete, accurate and versatile guitar amplifier modeler and designer for iPad.

Positive Grid BIAS

Equipped with 36 stunning replications of rock ‘n’ roll history’s most sought-after vintage and modern amps, Positive Grid’s new iPad app lets musicians dive deep into the guts of their gear to tweak every possible aspect of their architecture.

“Ask any guitarist what’s most important in a guitar amp app, and you’ll get the same answer: great tone,” says BIAS Product Manager Calvin Abel. “We didn’t think we’d be pushing the boundary by merely adding more bells and whistles to an amp simulator, so we threw out convention and focused instead on how to create the most delicious tone in as many flavors as possible. The result is BIAS, which allows guitarists to change preamp tube types, edit preamp voicing, adjust bias, audition various transformer types, swap out loudspeakers and cabinets, move microphone placement and much, much more. Never before have guitarists had such a broad palette to create their own dream amps and distinctive signature sounds.”

BIAS features

  • The most complete, accurate and versatile amp modeling available in the world.
  • 36 factory authentic amp models (28 guitar, four bass and four keyboard/vocal) included with the introductory release, plus the ability to custom-design a near-infinite variety of new topologies.
  • Factory categories organize amps by music genre and sonic impact: clean, blues, twang, crunch, metal, insane, acoustic and bass.
  • Fully customizable preamps, tone stacks, power amps, transformers, cabinets, panel controls and mic selection and placement—mix and match!.
  • 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 eight-band equalizers.
  • Included room simulator adds depth and natural ambience.
  • Included noise gate nips noise in the bud with high-gain setups.
  • Save a virtually unlimited number of custom amps.
  • Quick presets recall up to eight favorites in turn with just one tap.
  • Seamless integration with Positive Grid JamUp Pro XT with one finger tap.
  • Works with GarageBand and other audio apps via Inter-App Audio and Audiobus.
