How to Find/Record with BIAS Amp in Pro Tools


*Please note: Pro Tools First does not support 3rd party plugins*

 Locating BIAS AMP Plug-in in Pro Tools

1. Create a Mono or Stereo Audio Track.

2. Open the Mixer Window in Pro Tools (Go to View → Mix Window ), then go the the insert section on the guitar tracks and click Insert A to view the plug-in menu and see if you can find BIAS Amp plug-ins via the path :  plug-in -> Harmonics -> BIAS Amp




Note: If the plug-in or manufacturer’s name is not listed within the plug-in menu, then plug-in is not detected by Pro Tools.

If BIAS Amp plug-in isn’t in the list, make sure it shows up in the Pro Tools Plug-ins folder using the directions below. If they don’t show up there, try download and/or install them again. If it does show up in the plug-ins folder but Pro Tools still doesn’t see it, try trashing Pro tools preferences. That will force Pro Tools to re-scan all the plug-ins in that folder.


For Mac

Check the Plug-ins Folder:

1. With Finder open, click on Go and choose Computer.

2. For Pro Tools 11 or 12 (AAX), locate your plug-in at: Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Avid> Audio > Plug-Ins

3. For Pro Tools 10, locate your plug-in at: Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support> Digidesign > Plug-Ins





For Windows

Check the Plug-ins Folder:

1. For Pro Tools 11 or 12 (AAX), open Explorer and navigate to: C: > Program Files > Common Files > Avid > Audio > Plug-Ins
