I'm all Biased out.

Hi,
Just wondering what Positive Grid to upgrade to while the sale is on.
I've got BIAS FX LE and BIAS AMP 2 LE
Which would be the most beneficial to upgrade to the BIAS FX or AMP 2.
Any thoughts.
 
Regards
Brian

I have the FX Pro as I do like Fx's when playing. Of course, now I want AMP 2. The good thing about getting Fx Pro is you can get some really good tones in the Tonecloud (even without having the amps). The downside is you wish you had AMP 2 to tweak it or even use tone match. The new AMP 2 does sound very good.....so dilemma for you.   
 
It really depends on what you prefer. Wish they didn't make it separate and should've included all in one package with reasonable pricing (like how TH3 Full).

The main difference is Bias Amp lets you change
every stage of the amp...tubes, power section,
preamp, tonestack, etc....whereas Bias FX the amps are only
adjustable from the face, but you have the Pedals
to use.  The advantage to having both is that you
can build your own amp in BA, and then export it
to BFX to use the pedals.  It's the best of both worlds.

I am in the same position as Mesh and I couldn't have put it any better than him.

Thanks guys for your input, I've gone for the BIAS FX Standard which gives me more than enough.
Plus having the three BIAS Pedal plugins and BIAS Amp LE I'm a happy chappy.
To top it all I had a Focusrite voucher for $20 which brought the FX down to $29.
 
Best wishes

I did sort of the same thing and went from FX LE to FX Pro.  I may still go for AMP Standard or Pro but not sure I want to get into another tweaker's paradise where I spend too much time perfecting and not enough time recording.  To someone's earlier point, though, you can get good tones pretty quickly in both FX and AMP.  I'm now at the point where I've asked myself - for the first time - what amp sims can I ditch?  Probably none but Scuffham and Bias are where I'm at for the time being.  Not that the others aren't good at what THEY do, but for the first time in a while, I don't second guess which sims to pull up for a particular track.
