Positive Grid today announced an update to their BIAS FX amp-and-effects guitar processor with a new effects expansion pack for acoustic guitar. This expansion enables BIAS FX iPad and desktop users to add acoustic guitars within BIAS FX’s dual signal chain, and integrate them with BIAS Amp models. Users can also share, download and customize pedal boards on the ToneCloud, Positive Grid’s tone-sharing platform.
The acoustic pack features Positive Grid’s acoustic imaging technology, which accurately emulates the different sounds of an acoustic guitar pickup, along with an acoustic preamp, allowing users to adjust each aspect of their output signal in real time, for both live or studio use.
Effect models include an Acoustic EQ, Imager and Chorus. The Acoustic Image pedal neutralizes a guitar’s pickup and then restores the natural body resonance. The Acoustic EQ is built as a DI Dedicated EQ module for acoustic application, and shapes the tone with adjustable low mid and high mid frequencies. An acoustic reverb is optimized for acoustic guitar simulation for a smooth and warm sound while creating more sonic space. The acoustic chorus gives users a chorus and vibrato pedal specially designed for acoustic guitar, with an adjustable 2 band EQ. And finally, an acoustic preamp “improves the warmth and natural body resonances” of your guitar, all while keeping its original characteristics.
Pricing and Availability. The new Acoustic Expansion Pack is available now for BIAS FX iPad as an in-app purchase for $9.99. BIAS FX desktop version is $49 US. Further information is available at Positive Grid.

OK I will go first. I own a copy of Bias FX. This interests me, but the demo could be better. To me acoustic instruments are about expression, detail, nuance dynamics and that kind of thing. Not bashing and over compressing.
Here goes $10……..
I couldn’t agree more. It’s not much of a test of acoustic tones to just bang and smash.
Solo guitar, sans big rhythm section, finger-picked with fingertips (not nails), How does it do with bass notes, string noise, etc. etc. Lots of things to learn. Latency is always a factor, especially how tolerable it is on older devices where you have to buffer pretty high.
How much of this is glorified EQ?
Let us know what you discover, El.
Stub, So far I have discovered it is not yet available as an IAP. At least not on my iPad. My apps are all up to date….
