I've been recently demo-ing the three current main contenders in the VST Ampsim realm (Revalver 4, Recabinet 4, and BIAS) to decide which one to buy, and honestly I don't get all the hype with BIAS...
It just has a very annoying clanky attack and overexagerated treble response that I can't dial out no matter what I do. Feels like playing through a Metal Zone as a booster. I get that the D-kids may find that the holy grail of tone, but even clean amps have that unpleasant characteristics. Do I need to learn the brazillion of tweakable things it has to make it sound remotely good? The other two modelers obviously have itheir differences but they sound much closer on matched settings.
Sooo... What am I missing here? It's always mentioned along the Axe-Fx and the Kemper in terms of quality but to me it only excels on dynamics compared to last-gen modelers (and Recabinet kicks its ass on that).
Are you applying an LPF at all? Somewhere around the 7k mark and about 12dB/OCT is a good starting point. Also are you comparing it solo or in the mix? Most stuff I've heard out of BIAS has been fine and when I had a brief play with it all I did was some basic EQing like I would any other guitar track.
