After buying my Focusrite interface last year, every month or so Focusrite offer freebies to those who register the product.

Last month was Bias Amp LE and Bias FX LE

I downloaded and installed it but didn't do anything with it.

Yesterday I was thinking how my Axe Fx will be 10 years old this year and I have no back up rig when/If it every fails on me. So I start thinking of my needs, playing live and recording. Playing live I think I would go back to amp and pedals, for as much as I love the Axe Fx and all it can do, I think it has helped my understand what I actually like and use soundwise.

Recording is a different matter and having access to lots of amps and tones is always useful.

This brought me to trying out Bias, now I remember trying Line 6 podfarm years ago and feeling underwhelmed and whilst I'd heard demos of Bias by the likes of Lari Basilio I was still extremely impressed. I grabbed a JCM800 with a boost, overdrive , chorus, delay and reverb and with a couple small tweaks have an awesome lead tone.

I'm now setting up some recording patches in my axe fx that include a dry output 2 so I can record an Axe Fx track and a DI track to use with Bias.

I've used BIAS AMP and FX for a long time now, and I can't see myself switching for anything than an Axe FX II or similar, which I in no way can afford.

Bias sounds good to me though, with some tweaking of the tones in the tonecloud you can get almost any tone you want and get them sounding good.

For solos and the improvisations I sometimes do live on Facebook I use a tone called "Steve Lukather 15' Rig". I quite like it smile.gif

Good plan!!! BIAS is an amazing bit of kit and you can dig as deep as you like in to it to find your tone. BEN uses it to great effect as mentioned. He can probably share some great patches to get you going. It's also available for IOS so you can even use your phone as your back up rig in a pinch smile.gif

I'll be glad to share anything I've got.

Is there any specific sound you're looking for? smile.gif

I was on the BIAS test team but when it was released all of our licenses were killed and I went back to Trusty overloud. On bias I know you can share patches to their cloud, can you also export patches as a file and start a thread with a patch and a audio demo (youtube for example) of the patch so folks can hear it before downloading? You've got some very nice tones and a BIAS preset thread could be really cool smile.gif

I'm not sure if you can actually do that, but I'll check it.
