I just got an email today from Focusrite to get a free Bias Amp plugin from Positive Grid. If you have a Focusrite product like a Scarlett audio interface you qualify for the deal. You'll need to register in both Focusrite and Positive grid for the download, and you'll need to activate Bias Amp LT once it's installed. Yeah, a few hoops to jump through but it works.

In Reaper, I had to add the path in my VST settings. Once set up, don't forget to click the little speaker icon on the track settings so you can hear the plugin in real time. For me, there's a bit of latency but the amp settings are pretty cool. Not sure if I'll really use it all that much since I prefer to just go straight into my Boss ME-70 for amp models and FX without annoying latency.

Just thought I'd share if anyone is interested in the deal.

I tried it when it came out for Windows as a plugin.

I've stuck with my Mustang V and Boss GT-100 and 001 for modeling stuff as I have "couldn't tell if I didn't note on the tracks" versions of my main use amps already.

One of the positives is that you can change the amp settings after you've recorded the track. So if, for example, you've recorded a great lead with a bit too much gain and you want just a touch of hair, you can just change the amp model in the plugin. This freebee is the lite version so features like speaker cabs requires an upgrade to the pay version.

Yea, I don't work like that though, so... :)

I've always been a 'record wet' guy - I want the interaction that comes from playing with the total package versus fixing it later.
