Musikmesse 2017: Positive Grid introduces the BIAS modulation pedal
Users can mix and match two modulation types to create unique sounds. Positive Grid has introduced its new BIAS Modulation Pedal at Musikmesse.
The new gadget can work both standalone and as part of a PC, Mac or iPad setup. Effects include Flanger, Chorus, Phaser, Tremolo, Vibrato, Rotary, RingMod, AutoSwell and Pan.
All of these can be edited in the BIAS Pedal software, and your preferred settings can all be transferred to the hardware over USB or Bluetooth.
The pedal also comes with the option to share and download presets on Positive Grid’s ToneCloud network.
There are separate ¼” unbalanced (tip-sleeve), high-impedance instrument-input and line-level output jacks for left and right channels provide mono or wide stereo sound. And the Expression Pedal input provided on ¼” TRS jack provides real-time control of any parameter.
Users can mix and match two modulation types (time/filter-based and amplitude-based) to create unique sounds, and there are three preset banks, which can store up to ten presets each.
Other specs include separate MIDI In and Thru connectors and a 9VDC power-input jack.
The BIAS Modulation Pedal is set for release in Q2 and will retail for $349.
