The Global Parameters located on the bottom panel will help shape your sound. These are essential tools to your sound development, so use them extensively as you search for your tone.
Input and Output Volume: You can control the overall input and output volumes using their respective sliders in the control bar. Adjust the input volume slider to optimize the input level for your particular guitar pickup. To get the best signal-to-noise ratio, drag the input slider so that when you play your guitar at the loudest, the LEDs in the input level meter hit 0 dB. The lock switch for the input-volume slider prevents you from changing the input volume accidentally.
Tap Tempo: Shows current BPM value. You can set the BPM by entering the desired value or by using the built-in tap tempo feature. The BPM range goes from 40 to 400.
Quick Snap: BIAS Pedal offers 8 quick presets for instantly saving the current global settings. Just tap and hold one of the 8 slots to save or overwrite. This is a useful tool to help you do A/B comparisons during your sound development or store your favorite amp settings for instant recall.
Noise Gate: The Noise Gate reduces noise from an input such as a microphone or electric instrument. It is particularly useful for reducing hum or other background electrical noise.
THRESHOLD - Turn the threshold knob until the noise stops or decreases to an acceptable level.
DECAY - Decay sets the rate at which the Noise Gate will attenuate the signal once it drops below the threshold. Higher values will make the signal fade faster once it drops below the threshold.
Amp Room: Amp room is designed to let you test how your pedal will sound with different scenario. Select 6 Amp to compare pedal sound in different amp model. Tap the switch next to amp room button to bypass signal with amp model.
