Q: Why does BIAS FX has no sound output ?
A: There are several settings might help to solve this problem:
1. Check your iOS privacy setting. iOS added the privacy setting for microphone access, it will ask your permission at the first time startup. On your iPad, go to Settings > Privacy > Microphone to enable it.

2. Check mono audio setting. In the iOS setting > accessibility > Mono audio, make sure it's off.

3. If you are using external speakers, please select speaker mode in the Setting > Output Selector > Speaker. You can also try using a stereo cable, but only plug left or right into your aux-in or line in.

Note: If your interface has 2 outputs, use 2 cables - a Stereo Cable (One jack that splits to Two jacks) will give you a much smaller output sound.

4. If you are using an USB input adapter, try to change the input channel setting to a different channel (Settings > Input Channel).


Q: What's the Difference between BIAS FX Mobile Universal and JamUp ?
A: BIAS FX Mobile Universal is whole new amp-and-effects processor with professional-grade effects.
- Over the last several years, a range of high processing powered digital guitar effects and mobile guitar apps have changed the way millions of guitarists play and record.
- More and more working musicians are finding ways to use iPad for live performance and recording projects.  The question for us is how we can create new tools to maximize the sound quality with today’s technology.
- The result is BIAS FX Mobile Universal. It’s designed from the ground up with no-compromise mindset on sound quality.
- It comes with all the greatest and latest algorithms from our audio signal processing research and    development, and it provides significantly detailed and authentic emulation of analog pedals and studio racks.
- It also has custom BIAS amp integration (sold separately), a dual amp signal chain and it’s fully MIDI controllable.
- We then go beyond and create a cross-platform, amp-and-effects processor. Now - for the first time -  musicians can achieve high quality sound in the studio for recording and on iPad for live performance and  practice.
- With our open community ToneCloud for guitar PedalBoards and rigs sharing, BIAS FX Mobile Universal provides significant  better tone quality and possibilities for guitar and bass playing.
Q: Why can't I modify the amps from Metal Pack?
A: The Metal Signature Pack amps are a complete amp/cab solution and there isn't a way to turn off the cab, preamp, power amp..etc., nor modify the amps in BIAS Amp.*
