Available for download, Positive Grid's BIAS Amp 2 Elite is software that provides emulation of guitar amplifiers and cabinets. It works as a plug-in with supported DAWs, and also as a standalone application.

The previous version of BIAS Amp offered 36 amp models that were fully customizable, allowing the user to swap out tubes, preamps, transformers, tone stacks, microphones, and more to create a custom, signature sound. The new iteration of Bias takes this principle one step further with the redesign of their Dynamic Tone Engine. Working with engineers, artists, and others, Positive Grid retooled the algorithms behind all of the customizable amp/cab components to provide a more realistic and reactive experience. Additionally, multiple-miking is now available in the cabinet section. You'll also note nine reverbs for adding ambiance to your tone. 

The Elite edition of BIAS Amp 2 offers additional guitar amp emulations over the Standard version, including Crunch, Blues, Bass, Glassy, and Insane amplifier models. Each of these comes with corresponding preamps, power amps, cabinet emulations and amplifier variants.

You'll also find an AMP Match feature, wherein the software can approximate the tonal profile of your favorite tube amp. You can mic your own guitar setup, record it through your interface, and patch the results into the software. Conversely, you can import a reference guitar track into BIAS amp 2 Elite. Either way, AMP Match uses its technology to emulate the tone you desire. If you don't feel like going through the process yourself, you'll find 100 custom AMP Match presets via ToneCloud—presets you wouldn't be able to access in the Standard version. 

The Elite edition of Bias Amp 2 further separates itself from the Standard and Professional Versions with official cabinet impulse responses from Celestion, a marquis name in the world of speakers. For the Elite edition, Positive Grid partnered with Celestion to make sure their IR's are easy to implement. No longer do you need to load individual IR responses. Instead, just select a custom Celestion cab in the software, move the virtual mics around the cone, and BIAS AMP 2 will handle which IR corresponds to your chosen mic placement. 

This software is available for Mac and Windows platforms, and operates in AU, AAX, or VST formats, as well as standalone.
