Available for download, BIAS Pedal from Positive Grid utilizes the same technologies found in BIAS FX modeling software, but adds a welcome twist: Using this cross-compatible app/plug-in, you can create and fine-tune your own custom distortion pedals.
By means of an easy-to-intuit GUI, you can manipulate the modeling of well-regarded distortion units. You can change the input volume, the distortion stage, the gain control, EQ, and more in the pursuit of obtaining, for yourself, a distortion pedal different from any other pedal.
Alternatively, you can create pedals by matching the tone of your favorite distortion, overdrive, fuzz, or boost stompbox. Plug the pedal in via any interface/compatible piece of gear, choose its digital corollary within the software, and the BIAS Pedal will commence a tonal and responsive analysis to generate compensatory curves. With these curves instantiated, the digital pedal will now more closely resemble its analog analog. This software is compatible with iOS, Mac, and Windows platforms, and will work in AU, RTAS, VST, and AU formats.
