    Finally decided to try BIAS AMP and BIAS FX after getting assaulted by constant ads on my Facebook. I had been using Gearbox from Line 6 for years and it's amp simulation is very outdated and all around poor. Effects aren't bad. So my bar was pretty low. I passed on BIAS Amp as it has too many tweaking options and no effects. BIAS FX has 12 amps and 36 effects. Pretty simple. I'll break my first impressions down in some simple pros and cons

    Pros:

    -Works standalone and VST (have not tried VST)
    -Sounded great the moment I set it up to work with my Line 6 UX1 interface.
    -Fender sounds like fender, Marshall like Marshall. Great tones at my fingertips.
    -Thought this was for hard rock/metal players (judging by YouTube demos). Was pleasantly surprised it offers a lot for us low gainers.
    -Nice array of effects. Awesome treble booster (my favorite so far).
    -Dual signal chain option with great mixing options.
    -ToneCloud tone sharing (have not tried this yet)

    Cons:
    -Could use more effects, although I only paid $59 US, so can't complain too much.
    -Delay department is a little weak. Sounds is good but options are limited. I want delays with subdivisions, BPM and MS settings like my old Line 6 Gearbox.


    In short happy so far.
