Available both as a download for computers and an iOS app for iPads, Bias FX Professional from Positive Grid gives you stompbox and effects-rack emulation for your DI'd electric guitars and basses, as well as 32 amplifier/cabinet simulations. Its GUI is intuitive, and its offerings are large; to date, 52 effects are provided, including 10 rack-type processors.
BIAS FX Professional takes all the processing of its junior sibling (BIAS FX), while also giving you support for MIDI control and automation, making this software and app more suitable for live gigs and DAW integration. This software also gives you access to Positive Grid's ToneCloud, affording you the opportunity to use the custom effects chains of your peers, as well as the ability to upload your own. However, there's an added benefit here as well: many of BIAS FX Professional's presets have been exclusively designed by well-regarded and renowned guitar players operating within various genres.
This software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and iOS platforms. It can operate in standalone mode, or within AU, VST, RTAS and AAX formats.
