Positive Grid updates BIAS to v1.1 – ToneCloud custom amp sharing platform launched

Positive Grid ToneCloud for BIAS

Positive Grid has released version 1.1.0 of BIAS, introducing the ToneCloud sharing platform that allows BIAS users to interact with each other and share their custom amps.

The recently released BIAS (#1 paid music app in 118 countries) brought a whole new level of tone customization to guitar and bass players through a game changing, intuitive amp modeling and designer app. Today, Positive Grid added an new feature to raise the bar again: ToneCloud – the world’s first custom amp sharing platform.

“ToneCloud is an amp sharing platform with all the amp models you can imagine,” notes Jaime Ruchman, Marketing Manager at Positive Grid. “The ToneShare in JamUp allows musicians to create, share, and download user and artist presets. With ToneCloud, musicians can now explore and get inspired by the whole world’s custom amp models in just seconds. The possibilities are infinite.”

ToneCloud is a sharing platform that allows BIAS users to interact with each other and share their custom amps right inside BIAS. Users can now explore popular and latest custom amp models, and can further search by music genres or keywords. Also, sharing is more intuitive than ever: an upload button is always visible in BIAS no matter in what stage of the amp creation process, this makes sharing much easier and faster.

With ToneCloud, BIAS users will be part of a tone community with social utilities that allow them not only to create and share custom amps, but also interact with other musicians. With ToneCloud, BIAS will deliver much more than 36 amp models: it has the whole world of tone, on the cloud.

ToneCloud features

  • Explore and get inspired by the world’s first custom amp sharing platform.
  • Find popular and latest custom amp models, and search by genre or keywords.
  • “Preview,” “Like,” “Comment,” and “Download” artists and users custom amps.
  • Log in with Facebook for quick access.

BIAS for iOS is currently available to purchase for $16.99 USD.

Toontrack releases Bass Toolbox EZmix Pack

Toontrack Bass Toolbox EZmix Pack

Toontrack has announced the release of the Bass Toolbox EZmix Pack, a new expansion for EZmix 2 featuring a wide variety of presets custom-made solely for bass guitar.

You’ll find anything from amp and cab simulation settings to signal chains for amp and DI combos as well as inserts applicable on any type of source bass guitar audio.
“The idea was to compile something that would cater to a broad use, regardless of genre. A collection that covered the whole gamut of fundamental tools you’d need to get your bass right in a mix scenario”, says Toontrack sound designer Ulf Edlund.

A bass guitar in a mix situation is seldom just a plain and simple instrument signal. It often involves a long chain of effects such as compression, EQ, tape simulator and various types of distortion. Most mix engineers would even agree to bass being one of the hardest instruments to have sit well in a production. That’s why Toontrack put together an all-star team of engineers to design this collection of go-to settings for mixing and recording bass guitar: Randy Staub (Metallica, Avril Lavigne), Neil Dorfsman (Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits), Pelle Henricsson (Refused, Meshuggah) as well as the Toontrack sound design team.

This pack will provide anything from warm and muffled to edgy, modern and distorted tones – all the way from upright and acoustic to vintage, classic and modern. It’s a toolbox for bass guitar. Easy.

The EZmix pack is available to purchase for $49 USD / 39 EUR.
