Positive Grid (www.positivegrid.com) expands the popular custom amp modeler with three new dedicated expansion packs: Glassy, Crunch and Insane. Guitarists and bassists will now be able to add further customization to their BIAS preamp, power amp and cabinet modules by tone styles: from glassy clean tone, to classic british crunch, to insanely saturated distortion.
BIAS includes 36 of the most sought-after vintage and modern amps in rock ‘n’ roll history as a starting point for user customization. Now, along with the new Glassy, Crunch and Insane packs, BIAS also includes a new easy-to-use 8-band EQ with the purchase of any pack, as well as a new BIAS store and better JamUp integration – another Positive Grid app consisting of several multi effect stomp boxes. As always, users can share it with other musicians on Positive Grid’s proprietary social network, ToneCloud.
