The better the recording quality, the better the profile. I have a feeling this is in the works too. Kemper still wins for twice the price, it should! I am just curious in finding a tool which can simulate those things. I know it has been done by other companies as well but to me it seems they did a great job so far delivering a whole package that works great and they are on a very good way to make their product unique and outstanding on the market. Cheers Mike I love it, but I use the built in amplifier for powering my cab s. To the guys going ballistic: why are you acting so mental? There's also a free demo of S-Gear too, check it out.
I hope this helps anyone who may be on the fence who's been using Bias or Amplitube. Sunday morning for giggles, I check email. Unfortunately, they don't make a hardware Head version. A lot of this I haven't heard mentioned and I really believe has made my experience better and of course the tone of the Bias Head. These world-renowned speakers are used onstage and in clubs, theatres and other venues the world over. Which to prefer is a matter of taste. It definitely has a nice chest pounding thump if you turn it up.
What you mean why not axe fx 2? Seen demos of it and sounds decent but a little bit more presence than other units, but then again tweak a little and i am sure it will sound very good. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that you can send separate amps to separate channels on the head though. Mediocre modeling with some cool app interfaces. There are a metric ton of great high gain profiles for the kemper. It's a serious amp and is well worth the money. Axe fx ultra is an old technology but in The video still proofs that axe fx is a clear winner for me , even if it is an older technology. I went into this with the attitude that if it didn't work as advertised- or if I was not completely satisfied with it, it would go back.
I also tried amp matching a tube amp and doing the same with kemper - - well profiling -- again bias got very close, probably even closer than kemper in that case. Some nice tones there, its good you took the time to do the comparison, no one can knock you for that In my opinion the axeFx probably didn't win in some of these tests, however these are far from laboratory conditions Do you you own all that gear? Like any good modeler, the potential for going down the endless rabbit hole of tweaking is strong. Yeah that is also good to know, because if you use a live amp and cab on stage you really do not want any cab sim on there. Kinda spooky really, especially when you actually do it and see just how startlingly accurate it is. Honestly I think they were all solid performers, except for Bias.
No effects on the Bias Head. Reampzone and Sinmix have some excellent Dual Rec profiles. I truly believe anyone would be favorably impressed. When you find something you like, tweak, name it and save it to the amp. Initially, you can do some gain stage and power amp tweaking from the front panel, which I did. Indeed, if you really are serious about crafting your ideal guitar tone, there are endless hours of fun to be had. Not sure if that helps or not.
I am just curious in finding a tool which can simulate those things. Something about its dynamics is really harsh. I used the software version and I found that it comes relatively close to the reality changing transformers and tubes. Only a little smaller than Kemper and heavier than Powerhead by 3 lbs. Interchangeable tube types preamp, power amp, and rectifier , transformer type, bias duh , and tone stack type alone will give you nearly infinite combinations, but then you can choose from a plethora of different cabs, as well as 2 different mic types for those cabs that you can move in an infinitely variable way. That's my opinion and it is a valid one.
My wife, Linda, understood this completely. The front of the Bias Head offers two rows of controls. At a certain point, though, I realized that I just needed to work on my chops as a player. The speaker out reads and matches impedance to just about any cabinet you can put it in front of. All that warmth etc blurb But even to capture the Blackstar's sound needs at least twice it's price in gear - and the whole process is influenced by the room acoustics. I think guitar amplifiers are an artifact of the past already at this point. If you're going for a desktop setup, that would be your best best though.
Can't see what they are doing. There are five categories: Clean; Glassy; Crunch; Blues; Metal, each of which has five settings, numbered 1 thru 5. The advent of the internet and its expansion to the seemingly limitless world of hands-free technology has made it so that just about anything and everything you could possibly wish for is a swipe, click or tap away. The only time you get that type of flexibility is getting up over the 2k range, and that is getting ridiculous. Sorry for the loooong answer, hopefully it answered your and other's questions. You can access all of these elements from the main plug-in window, which is split into four horizontal areas.
If you don't like them don't buy their stuff. I guess they are working and doing updates all the time, right? The Mesa cab was my least favorite since I had to turn cab sims off and it colored the tone. I'm lukewarm about the tone. I have the Positive Grid Bias Rack Powered and I also had a Kemper Power Head at one point. Hopefully I'm not committing a violation but the following are the amp models loaded into the amp from the factory.
