Positive_Grid_BIAS-FX_StandaloneThis week, Positive Grid announced their release of BIAS FX Standalone, the world’s “first and only” cross platform guitar amp-and-effects processor. Previously released as a desktop plug-in, BIAS FX now allows musicians to use it as a fully-functional standalone application for both Mac and PC, without the need of a DAW or any other software.

In addition, BIAS FX Pro now adds MIDI and automation support for both the standalone and plug-in versions, making it a performance-ready amp and effects application for professional live and studio use.

BIAS FX Standalone users will be able to perform with BIAS Amp Match models, capturing the tone from any real amp, in dual amp mode, add ultra-high definition effects configurations in dual signal chains, and share and download rigs right on ToneCloud, Positive Grid’s tone sharing platform.

  1. I just downloaded the demo and spent about an hour trying it. To my ears (and through RME and descent monitors) it sounds no better than guitar rig or amplitube (which is fine in a mix). My HD500 sounds quite a bit better (more air, jangle, life) and my Valve amp sounds 3D compared to a simulation when I hear it live, but when recorded and mixed, only a bit better than the HD (but somehow my playing seems better when I amp up…..)
