Same here, the only one I was missing. Cheers groverken and fret_man (no fb or tw here either).
 
I just had to log into Tonecloud from Bias Pedal and there it was (no download necessary).

Wow! Completes the set for me too! I should probably consider giving Poitive Grid some of my money, they've been very generous.

Anyone with Bias Amp 2 Pro know how this works in conjunction? Is it still separate plugs for Amp, Pedal and Bias FX? That's really the one thing that turns me away. I wish it was all contained in one app.

These are separate, and can be used as stand alone VST's or in conjunction
with Bias Amp/FX...

EDIT:  DO NOT, BY ANY MEANS, DEMO BIAS AMP 2...

Generous indeed.
 
Requires logging in to soundcloud to authorize and get out of the demo mode. Different activation method but about painless. Asked for a like on a twitter account. Don't have no twitter account, but worked anyway. Once activated out of the demo mode, it doesn't seem to rely on any further internet connection. No idea how many computers you can activate.
 
A bit convoluted on what is where. Needs Pedal to be installed and activated so the mod units show up in the FX program, but they do. What was necessary here to get it working.
 
Question I have though. After activating, FX shows up as the LE version, and something strange about the mod stomps that may be planned or may be a limitation hanging over our heads until we upgrade.
 
Noted on the vast majority of the mod stomps that you cannot modify the fundamental sweep rate of the effect. There is a background element that does respond to either free or sync'd to host speed. Glaring example is Phastutter where changing the rate knob has no effect on the base stutter rate whether locked to the clock or freeform.
 
Anyone having this problem or do we have to fork out the bitcoin to allow control.

Had a quick play with this today and it's got some pretty nice mod options including a very good vintage chorus (sounds great on my Brass in Pocket cover), slow rotary, accelerating rotary (wonder how it compares to the others bit?), slow attack and all manner of flangers, ensembles, phasers, trems, vibe, ring mod, stutter etc.

Re: Positive Grid Free Bias Pedal Modulation 2018/12/12 01:49:24 (permalink)
Still my question if anyone out there playing with this...
 
Regarding the Bias FX, this may be a new mode of operation, so trying not to be too locked into what I was expecting in case everything is working like it is supposed to. Don't know if the free LE version blocks better function available only in the paid version upgrade.
 
Seems so many of the mods are crippled up front with no way to change the mod speed. The speed control on most does alter a background process that you can do free wheeling or sync'd to the clock, but you can't change the fundamental in your face speed of most. Mild Tape Flange does allow speed change, but most of the others...
 
Maybe the intent is to get something out of the box that is already done for you so you don't have to think and thus no control over. This is cool if it is the way it is designed, and no question that there are some good chorus and rotary sounds.
 
Other only negative remark is that the pro distortion pedal pack is mostly a gritty rehash of the same motif. Many colorful stomps to choose from, but outside an eq shift here and there, they mostly all sound the same. Old ear here says that the iconic boxes are way off the mark. Could reduce the eye candy down to maybe three stomps and cover it all.
 
The Bias amp LE limited plug is quite incredible if you have this, even short of the pro version. The freebie grays out all the downstream connections except for a generic preamp. Good enough for me. Fine sounds even without all the advanced frills and a keeper.
 
Thanks and respect to the Bias guys for their offering.

I think that's a cripple of the LE that is keeping you from 
using it fully.  I just upgraded to Pro 2 Elite, and everything
seems to be fully functional for me. 

Try it in "Stand Alone" mode and see if everything is functional
John!

And YES, the LE version is what persuaded me to upgrade to
Pro 2.  It might even replace S-Gear as my go to.

i was very impressed with Bias 2.  It's quite impressive IMO.
If you have the LE Version, give it whirl, or demo it.  I've never
been that impressed with TH3 myself.

Here's what I typed in earlier as it hasn't re-appeared after vanishing!

How does Bias Amp 2 compare with Overloud's TH3? That's been my go-to so far.



I'll try and give you my take on TH3 vs Bias plus a few others.
 
Larry convinced me to buy Bias FX Pro and I am sure glad I have it. I now have...
 
1. Bias FX Pro (with Bias Amp 2 LE & Bias Pedal) - might also go Pro on Bias Amp before the sales end.
2. Full TH3
3. Amplitube MAX (plus a few packs).
4. Guitar Rig 5
5. Waves GTR
 
What I like about TH3 is that everything is included so there is nothing extra to buy once you have it. There are tons and tons of presets although finding a particular one can be time consuming. I have spent a bit of time auditioning a lot of them and saved them to my own bank so that I could find them again easily.
 
I only recently got Bias FX Pro but it does have some excellent effects and tones. It has quite a few amps also built-in which sound superb especially in the crunch and heavy categories. It can also bring in amps from Bias Amp and FX from Bias Pedal. So if I upgrade to Bias Amp Pro I will also have more amps to choose from in Bias FX. However, for me the killer feature of the Bias software is Tonecloud where you can search online for tones made by others e.g. Satriani (this is for you Mesh ;), Metallica etc. patches and even submit your own. I have already downloaded quite a few tones and saved them to a user bank. Like Amplitube it suffers from "missing content" popups if you try and use content that you haven't purchased. Positive Grid seem to do regular updates and I notice that they are currently rolling out 100 new Bias Amp Factory presets.
 
I only acquired the MAX version of Amplitube recently and that has addressed the missing content popup that I used to get when I had a lesser version. I like a lot of the tones and especially the Fender 1 and 2 collections.
 
It's good to have options and sometimes I can't find a tone I'm looking for in one plugin so try another. For example, there's a really good Brian May tone in Guitar Rig that I use. You can probably make or find something similar in Bias/TH3/Amplitube but I can go straight to that one when I need it.
 
I also tried the Scuffham S-Gear demo and really liked it and I can see why others recommend it. If you haven't tried it then definitely give it a go.

This is an excellent tip regarding TH3... My biggest gripe with it is lack of a search engine (or flags like GR5), but this is a manageable work around.

Searching sort of falls on its face when things have goofy names anyway... Synths tend to gravitate to goofy names for some reason.

Re: Positive Grid Free Bias Pedal Modulation 2018/12/12 21:18:52 (permalink)
I have TH2 and TH3, both of which came through SPlat from which I upgraded to full versions.  I also have Guitar Rig 5 Pro, Bias FX Pro, Pedals, and AMP LE (same set up as Zinc), and Scuffham S-Gear.  I want to love TH3 as my go-to still, but am finding that both Bias FX Pro and Scuffham amps don't suffer from some of the harshness found in high-gain patches in TH3 and have more definition of tone with clean patches.  I think some of that could be remedied through some surgical parametric EQ.  I love the flexibility of the amp modeling in TH3 (45 degree and rear mics!) that I don't see in other amp sims.  All in all, its a complete package.  The more 3rd party IRs I amass, the more I see the impact they have on improving tones over stock cabs (although the Modern 4x12 Boogie model is schweet). Also, the Randall amp models are absolutely WICKED.
 
On the other hand, I'm getting great tones in Bias FX and S-Gear that don't require the tweaking needed in TH3.  If anything, getting Bias and S-Gear are inspiring me to see if I can work with the EQs and imported IRs to get TH3 back to the top of the heap.  It's so easy to use, and I love the navigation/saving improvements over TH2 and the fact this thing can go FULL SCREEN which might sound trivial but its a big advantage.  I know TH3 better than other amp sims so that familiarity is also driving my desire to keep using it.
 
I picked up Scuffham for cheap knowing there's a significant update coming but every patch in S-Gear sounds great to me.  I often wonder how some stock presets make it into other products, but not S-Gear.  The tones are smooth and varied, and the Convolver is top-notch.  Really looking forward to 2.9 and 3.0.
 
As for Bias FX Pro, I'm really getting into it.  My biggest complaint is the gain staging; I can't get it lower that 0db  and the track meter at any time without taking the input and output down to practically nothing, still leaving me next to no headroom to play with.  Still have to figure that out (others have found the same issue), but like what I'm hearing so far.  Not as consistent in the quality of tone presets as S-Gear, but I've found plenty of patches on ToneCloud that give me ample configurations to start with.
 
Again, I wish TH3 would just do it for me.  Great company, great products, but I need to work with it a little more based on what I have now heard from other amp sims.  I hope I can master the tone sculpting better to get me where Bias and Scuffham are today.  I think it can eventually get me there (it really is impressive on its own), but I have a day job.  I don't want to spend my evenings tweaking, fun as it may be.
