Positive Grid has recently released the BIAS Pedal Distortion, a virtual guitar effect pedal available in VST, AU, RTAS and AAX formats for PC and Mac based plugin hosts. The product normally costs at $99, but it can be downloaded completely free of charge by January 2nd, 2017.
BIAS Pedal Distortion is available in both mobile and desktop versions. The company laid a prominent emphasis on going back to the original sound of Rock’n’Roll, recreating the sound of an old-school fuzz pedal in the form of a virtual effect.
The BIAS Pedal allows the user to create a personalized pedal from scratch by tweaking and interacting with its internal components and parameters. The product also gives the user the possibility to tone-match and recreate the sound of legendary guitar amplifiers or other hardware of your personal preference. The plugin is widely considered to be one of the most accurate pedal modeling effect available today.
There are some hidden technicalities in the software itself, which prove the comprehensive and creative approach that the developers have implemented — preset facilities, room simulation, a built-in graphic equalizer, and so forth; the plugin is well-designed and intuitive with consideration of the end user experience.
Overall, BIAS Pedal puts an amazing amount of potential in the user’s hands. It will allow you to explore the creative potential of building your own custom guitar pedal in the safety of your virtual studio. However, bear in mind that the system requirements are quite hefty. The plugin will deliver its maximum potential at a recommended 8 GB RAM and a preferred 2.0 GHZ dual-core processor.
All things considered, BIAS Pedal Distortion is definitely worth checking out, especially now that it’s available as a free download. You’ll need to hurry, though, because the free download offer expires on January 2nd!
BIAS Pedal Distortion is available for free download via Positive Grid, for a limited time only (244 MB download size, EXE installer, 32-bit & 64-bit VST/AU/RTAS/AAX plugin for Windows & Mac OS).
