Positive Grid Announces BIAS Rack Amplifier

Guitar Pro

Rackmount version of highly anticipated guitar amplifier featuring BIAS Amp Match technology will be available for pre-order

San Diego, Jul 28th,  2016 – Positive Grid (www.positivegrid.com), creator of the best selling BIAS Amp and BIAS FX guitar and effect processors, today announced BIAS Rack, a rackmountable, travel-ready version of the BIAS Head amplifier. With BIAS Rack, guitar and bass players can amp match, amp design, and access BIAS Amp tones and download them directly from the ToneCloud with their mobile device, and put them onto BIAS Rack for professional stage use. With full MIDI capability, BIAS Rack integrates with any existing MIDI setups seamlessly. Early Birds pre-orders ($999) kick off this Monday, August 1st on the Positive Grid home page. Regular retail price will be $1299 with an estimated official release in Q4 2016.

Cross-platform Integration

While the BIAS Head can withstand even the toughest of live and travel environments, it’s important to be able to integrate into existing live and studio setups for musicians of all levels. With a rackmount form factor, Positive Grid is bringing all of the same features as BIAS Head into a more compact, tour ready package, with the most used features and access points right on the front panel for quick tone dialing and sound management.

Amp Match

BIAS Rack ships with BIAS Amp Pro software for Mac/PC, allowing users to accurately capture any  real  amp  tone  in  the  world,  and  load  it  via  USB to  the  rack.  Amp  Match  technology analyzes  and  compares  a  selected  BIAS  amp  model  with  the  sound  of  a  target  amplifier,  cab and mic. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancements needed to make an amp models  sound  accurately  match  the  target  amplifier.  BIAS  Rack’s  600w  gives  users  more headroom and cut-through tone in a live situation – all at zero latency.

Amp Design

BIAS  Rack  integrates  seamlessly  with  BIAS  Amp  for  mobile  and  desktop.  Users  can  design their custom amps in real time such as change the tube types, select their favorite preamp and power  amp   configuration,   tone   stacks,   cab  and   speaker   models,   load   custom   impulse responses, and even freely move the microphone placement to design custom amp tones.

ToneCloud

BIAS Rack comes with 25 factory presets. When integrated with the included BIAS Amp Pro for Mac/PC,  users  can  open  a  vast  collection  of  amp  tones  ready  to  be  downloaded  from  the ToneCloud,  Positive  Grid’s  tone  sharing  platform.  There  are  thousands  of  amp  match  models available in BIAS Amp’s ToneCloud – from tweeds to plexis to rectifiers, and everything in between.
