What I don't like is the expansion packs I've bought on the iPad are not included or accessible on the Desktop version so the two don't match. My goal was to create an original Christmas metal song. I tended not to mess with these controls much, keeping them at their minimum volume, when I wanted a strict clean tone, but dialed them up a bit to get an actual acoustic guitar tone. Code Among the other Low Gain amps are PhD Z Dr. The competition in the amp-and-effects modeling market is fierce, and there is no shortage of excellent products.
I used multiple sounds, amps, and tones! So if you want your external midi or otherwise footswitch to act like a pedalboard one button turns a specific effect on and off , you can't easily do it with Jamup. They have completely different use cases. The PhD Z was one of my favorites, offering a clean and present sound with the Gain set low, and a nice fat distortion with it set high. On the other hand, the Vox model was underwhelming. You can also comment on presets you try, which is helpful for others browsing. I did this for both my clean and metal ambient tones. I've frigged around with a cracked version on Bias Amp on my computer but recently bought Amp and Jam Up pro for my iphone I just needed a simple late night practice thing.
To post in , your account must be at least 2 days old and not have negative comment karma. Want access to famous classic and modern amplifiers and effects, right at your fingertips? But I love this tone and have yet to find anything that replicates it. To me, it seems like Bias released the software before it was really ready. Just expect to have to put some time into getting some convincing tones. I definitely don't want to knock Bias because I really think the concept is cool and there definitely are some great sounds in there.
This means that you will likely use this as your chorus regardless of what type of sound you are after. It does take more time to dial than some of my other plugs but I was willing to put in more time on it because of the mobile features and I feel like it has been a good return on investment. A good example of amps that exhibited this problem were the Rectifier amp models. Maybe my expectations are out of line for this type of speaker??? The same with the Lepou plugins. Matter a fact, your interface seems to be fine also based on that test. I can't imagine that the AxeFx won't get you what you're after. I will be doing more of this in the future! So I had him use the same template and start there.
Switching between the body types underneath the picture of the guitar changes the effect that the Body knob controls. The latter lets you delay either side up to 30 ms, allowing you to get greater stereo width, and it works great. And half-way through the recording process I realized there are parts of some tracks I wish I had kept! A noise gate, also essential on a amp modeler, can be switched in and out, and features Threshold and Decay knobs. For fun I then opened up Amplitube 4 again and man. I can get a nice compressed punchy tube sound through it, but yeah it's not the best or most versatile on the market. And all-new Fuzz, Time and Harmonizer modelers provide unique guitar tones and effects, and a looper and recorder allow new performance capabilities.
There are way too many great alternatives for that to be the selling point of Bias. As for spillover frustration, the AxeFx gen 1 units have a spillover feature for changing presets, but honestly, a lot of users found it to be terribly awkward and clunky as is, and would instead opt for different methods of achieving spillover via parallel signal paths and real time controllers. Jamup's distortion pedals are very good, as is the 68 spring reverb fake, but anything else just spoils the party. If then another couple of generations of Bluetooth will improve transfer speeds and latency we can likely run wireless Bluetooth from the guitar to the iPhone and then onto whatever amplification. After several hours of tweaking, with the continuous cutoffs of the demo version, my results left a lot to be desired so I never bothered again. I'm not a fan of having to layer effects and such on top of recorded tracks.
I searched about this issue and somewhere i red that older iPad's have lower latency, weird. But for the last year my main app is Amplitube. It is worse with high-gain tones but still there with clean tones. Heck, I'm well into my adulthood and we still put up Christmas lights. I spent some extra time with the drums too, as this is a multi-part song with a timing change you'll read more about my drums below. So I have the tone stack fx.
Couldn't get a single decent distorted tone out of it, and the cleans were nothing special either. All of you have been very helpful. Tried he demo versions of Amplifire and boom after a few minutes a decent tone. Wait a second, I think I know why your YouTube and iTunes playback is distortion free, and why I'm almost positive it's the input sensitivity switch on your monitors that needs to be adjusted because your monitors appear to be fine! And if so, would that type of speaker produce quality sound for backing music in addition to the guitar amplification? Their graphics team did a shoddy job in that regard. Want access to famous classic and modern amplifiers and effects, right at your fingertips? I had considered getting help with the mixing. Your just lowering it at the source instead of the interface.
That sounds like it could help. My ideal tone is a Les Paul through a Fender Twin. Also has a noise gate on it as well, which does improve the static noise. I'm scratching my head right now as I'm at a loss for words. Maybe it's how they had them set up.
Comment below if you have any questions or thoughts you'd like to share! It's a great package if you want all those amps and effects and don't have them anywhere else, but it's pretty easy to spend a fair amount of money on that that might be better spent somewhere else. With the iPad version, it sounds good and as I would expect. As always, trust your ears. Overall Bias Fx served me well for a few years, but I've definitely found there are plenty of better alternatives. Below the video I will elaborate more on how I created my clean and metal ambient tones with the shimmer effect. I was just noting that you shouldn't compare them to a real guitar amp+cab which can get way louder. If this helps with the distortion, but the overall volume is still not loud enough, you will need bigger more powerful monitors.
