Recording and Performance
Tighten Up Song Transitions, Live Performances and Studio Mixes
Whether you’re an aspiring guitarist or an experienced pro, BIAS FX 2 makes it easier than ever to create instant song transitions, mind-blowing FX changes and ear-catching mixes—in the studio and onstage.
Introducing Scene - One Click Changes Your Pedalboard
Each preset in BIAS FX 2 has four “scenario” settings you can create and save, so you can recall multiple distinct but closely related pedalboard scenes. With one click, you can simultaneously turn overdrive and delay on for your lead solo and turn off the chorus effect you used on the song’s verse—all while preserving the rest of the preset’s settings. Or, instantly switch from one pedalboard setup to another—each with completely different EQ, reverb and other settings—for different song sections.
Redesigned Workflow for Easier, More Productive Recording Sessions
Redesigned user interface includes a new preset manager that makes it easy to organize and rapidly search, recall and preview your favorite pedalboard setups. Take a custom snapshot of each of your custom pedalboard setups, then switch instantly among them on the fly to A/B which is best for your current song. Or use the snapshots to instantly re-amp when switching from a crunchy rhythm guitar part to a soaring lead solo and back again.
Use MIDI Automation To Turbocharge And Streamline Complex Mixes
BIAS FX 2’s powerful MIDI integration lets you make startling, instantaneous mix changes and fluid, morphing transitions by automating parameter changes for each section of your song—while also shaving hours of work off your project. It’s easy to assign MIDI commands to virtually every parameter available, including volume control, individual effects parameters, guitar-emulation selection, Looper functions and more.
Create Unique Hybrid Amps and Sweeping Stereo Amp Setups
In BIAS FX 2, the amps you use to create your tone are limited only by your imagination. Use Dual Amp setup to cherry-pick parts from two separate amps—their impulse responses, cabs, EQs, even the mics they use—and combine them to create a one-of-a-kind hybrid amp nobody else has. Or keep the amps as they are, route them parallel to one another and hardpan them to create a stereo setup with totally different guitar tones in left and right channels.
Preserves Fleeting Ideas Before They’re Lost
Quickly record ideas for riffs, vamps and songs with a simple click when inspiration strikes, using BIAS FX 2’s built-in recorder. Then loop your recording while you play it back through BIAS FX 2’s foot pedals, amps and rack FX, fine-tuning the perfect custom preset to use with your new song idea. You’ll never lose that perfectly played riff. Simply export it as a .WAV file for use in a new track in your DAW—the starting point for a new multitrack recording!
