BiasFX 2 Tutorial [Part 1/2] Creating a tone from scratch


BiasFX 2: Using the Looper & Guitar match – Tutorial [Part 2/2]

Hi there! Did a Lil tutorial on BiasFX 2 which came out earlier this year. In this video, I’m just going over how to use the new looper feature and guitar match; how to profile your guitar and emulate different guitar models. I’m using the BiasFX 2 Elite version in this video, but the same principles apply to the other BiasFX licenses (standard and pro).

**NOTE at 02:22 I noticed after posting the video that I say “we’re just left with an amp & ahead” a couple of times; I did mean to say head & cab but I had a brain fart (maybe cause i had to make this video in 2 different languages and English is not my native tongue! 😛) So yeah; head/amp and cab NOT amp & head lol. Sorry if I confused anyone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ // Hi! In this video, I’m quickly going over how i create a clean tone from scratch using the available heads, cabs, and effects.
