F.A.Q.

Q:What do I need in order to use these patches?
A:You need an audio interface and software to host the plugins that are used in the preset. Any DAW will work.


Q: How will I install your presets?
A: In case any of the following steps fail, you can use the detailed pics that I will send you. This allows you to adjust all of the variables manually. If you have any issue contact me.


  • Installing BIAS Amp Models:

Use the Bias Importer tool I made! (If you are on Windows)

                                                                      Alternatively:
1.You will receive a folder with a weird name. This is the AMP model, simply paste it inside the GlobalPresets folder.

2.If a “cate.idx” file exists inside your Bias folder, you will send me that file. I will send you back a modified version of that file. Just paste the new version of “cate.idx” inside Bias folder and overwrite the old one. If this file doesn’t exist, you are ready with step one only.

3. Done

Default Path for GlobalPresets folder:

(On Windows) “C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Bias\GlobalPresets\” .

(On Mac) “documents / bias / global presets” .

Each amp is a folder with a unique identifier as its name. Inside the Bias folder go to GlobalPresets: Simply paste the folder with that weird name in the pool with all the other folders inside GlobalPresets:

  • Installing custom GUI for my Bias Amp Models (You do this only once)

1. Paste the .png files that you receive in the “TemplateImages” folder.

Default Path for the TemplateImages folder:

(on Windows) “C:\Program Files\Common Files\PositiveGrid\BIAS AMP Plugins(64bit)\Resources\TemplateImages”

(on Mac) “Library / Audio / Plugins / Components / BIAS.component / Resources / TemplateImages” (Right click Bias.component, show package content)

2. Done

Note:If you want to use an amp that came with a custom GUI inisde Bias FX, you need to create a duplicate of this amp ,without a GUI.
Simply inside Bias Amp open up the amp model you just purchased and click “Save As”,”OK”. That way you will create the same model but without a fancy GUI. The Amp will now be visible inside Bias FX.

Note:The GUI doesn’t work with the version 1.4.7

  • Installing BIAS FX Presets:

Use the Bias Importer tool I made! (If you are on Windows)

Alternatively:
1.Inside Bias FX, pick a random preset and then click “Save As”. Save it  and name it with the exact name of the Patch that you purchased, and select bank “factory1”. (We are doing this to generate a piece of code inside the “preset” JSON file)

2.You will receive a “.Preset” file. You need to copy and paste this file in the bank that you saved the Preset in step 1:

Default Path for the “factory1” folder:

(On Windows) “C:\Users\UserName\Documents\BIAS_FX\Presets\factory1\”)

(On Mac) “/documents / bias fx / presets / factory1/”

3.Done

Explaining step 1:
Inside of factory1, there is a “preset” JSON file. There must be a piece of code inside this file similar to this…
asgasgas

for example the preset JB DUAL LEAD (“display_order” : must be the previous value + 1)asggasga

  • Other VST plugins:

The VST file format for storing single presets is “.FXP”. The package you get through email will include all the .FXP files needed for all the plugins in the chain. You will have to import the .FXP file for every plugin in the chain through your DAW, unless the plugin has some built in preset storage functionality. Here is how you do it in Reaper…


Q:How will I get your patches?
A:The package with all the .FXP files, Impulse Responses, links to the software used, documentation, pics and all the necessary files, will be sent to the Email address that is associated with your PayPal account.


Q:Why do you sell your patches and not give them for free?
A:Because I’m a bad person. Here is some free stuff I giveaway.


Q:How do I know your patches sound good?
A:Just check the samples I have uploaded on my soundcloud or youtube account and let your ears be the judge. What you hear, is what you get!


Q:WHO ARE YOU?
A:I am a guitar nerd. I study Digital Systems and Digital Signal Processing at the University Of Piraeus. Here is ma facebook I don’t reveal my face because that’s what superheroes do. Contact me and ask me anything you want.
