it's made by Elektron, one of the most respected name in Pro analog gear, the price is clearly worth every pennywell it is a multifx and and has midi
I dont know but if it was 200 $ paired with a dd 500 that costed 200$ it would be very interesting
but it is not
When I first heard about the Bias, I posted a thread asking what people thought. Crickets. Nothing. I think there's close to zero excitement about this pedal, at least on TGP (which is probably ground zero for potential buyers of a pedal like this). I'm not saying it's bad; I'm saying no one cares.It looks pretty decent but with Positive Grid's Bias Distortion Pedal Pro supposed to be coming out this year for roughly the same price, it's going to have some tough competition.
Or, you know, Source Audio and Strymon.no competition... the first one is real not digital
and the real thing is usually more real
plenty of other pedals like the bias (boss dual pedal , nux drive pedal , and the line 6 one (in the green delay series) all digital came in to mind (I dont remember names))
That's sort of like passing out a yawn at a Big Muff because Fuzz Faces were making fuzz years before that. Similar functionality, different flavors. If the Analog Drive sounds good, it'll win; if it doesn't, it won't.Source Audio Soundblox Pro Multiwave / Classic Distortion did this several years ago IMO. yawn
Kinda why I brought up the Bias pedal. After a certain point, they kind of start to sound the same and the biggest difference between pedals are the eq options. The Elektron has 8 settings, whereas with the Bias, you can literally design your own pedal. I think the reason no one really said much about it is because; a) it hasn't been released yet and b) apparently, Elektron has a bit of a following, whereas Positive Grid only has 1 piece of hardware to speak of. Once they're both out and have some hours of use on them, it'd be interesting to see a comparison.just not hearing anything special IMO = yawn
edit: and I do have the SA MWD, which was/is a game changer IMO. Opened my ears to digital dirt.
I'm looking for new/interesting dirt pedals FWIW.
