Positive Grid Bias Distortion Pro Tone Match Digital Distortion Pedal, 4 Buttons
In rock music, crunch and gain transformed the electric guitar from a support to a lead instrument, bringing it from the back of the stage to the front. Positive Grid’s groundbreaking component emulation technology allows BIAS Distortion to recreate the sound of almost any existing gain pedal, while providing the ability to create entirely new sounds and textures. It’s the first distortion pedal that works with any amplifier, giving you access to an entire library of gain in a single pedalboard parking space.
END THE PEDALBOARD SHUFFLE
The days of ripping apart your existing pedalboard to experiment with drive sounds are over: with support for 20 customized presets and a built-in variable boost, BIAS Distortion can get virtually any gain sound you need for your gigs or sessions. Assign three different custom gain pedals to the onboard footswitches, and use the variable tri-boost to kick it into high gear for intense sections or solos. With BIAS you can finally end the Pedalboard Shuffle - just download one of the thousands of pedals available on the ToneCloud® or customize one yourself to explore new sounds.
Positive Grid’s unique component emulation engine allows you to recreate almost any existing pedal circuit, expanding your gain vocabulary and redefining what the term “distortion pedal” really means. Using BIAS Pedal software on a desktop computer or mobile device, you can utilize two separate clipping sections and mix and match the characteristics of germanium/silicon diodes, JFET/MOSFETs and vacuum tube gain blocks. Change the headroom by varying the voltage on the virtual power supply, modify the feel of the pedal with the compressor, or utilize two super-flexible EQ stages for even more tone-shaping power. There’s even a built-in noise gate - the sonic possibilities are immense!
GAIN WITH NO PAIN
You don’t have to be a tweakhead to take advantage of the massive creative power under the hood of BIAS Distortion. All BIAS pedals can connect to the Positive Grid ToneCloud®, giving you access to thousands of custom pedals uploaded by artists, recording studios and fellow guitarists. If you have a distortion pedal you simply can’t live without, BIAS Pedal software can clone it using Positive Grid’s exclusive Tone Match® technology!
