I want to publish this article and share it with you as quickly as possible (because the offer expires in less than 24 hours), so there’s no time for an in-depth review.
Instead, here’s a short overview of BIAS FX 2’s most important features so that you can decide whether or not it’s worth downloading for free.
BIAS FX 2 lets you mix and match different guitar amps, cabinets, microphones, and pedals to create the custom guitar setup of your dreams (as long as you don’t mind it being a piece of software running in your DAW).
The Standard version, currently free, offers 30 different guitar amps and 45 effects to play around with.
The amp section covers the majority of classic and modern guitar amplifier models. You’ll find a fair share of virtual Marshalls, Fenders, and other amps to help you get the perfect tone.
The collection of virtual guitar pedals is equally impressive, covering a variety of distortions, overdrives, delays, reverbs, and modulation effects. You’ll also find a spring reverb, an auto-wah pedal, and other specialized tools.
All of this runs in a user interface that lets you mix and match different components with ease. I always liked BIAS FX’s interface design, but the latest version is even more intuitive.
With so many amp and pedal options, it’s easy to get lost while customizing your sound. I like how BIAS FX makes the most important control parameters clearly visible on the GUI and puts the other rarely-used features in the background.
It also features some cool workflow enhancement tricks. One such tool is the Guitar Match feature, which lets you transform your guitar tone into something completely different with a single mouse click.
If you don’t like building your guitar tone from scratch, you can use the ToneCloud feature to access over 50,000 guitar presets.
Of course, going through all of those presets isn’t the smartest way to spend your time, but you can use the search feature to quickly find what you’re looking for and use it as the starting point for further customization.
To summarize, BIAS FX 2 Standard is a good-sounding and highly versatile guitar rig software. It typically costs $99 but can be yours for free if you order it today.
