Bias amp 2 sounds awful,... please help!



  • My Bias Amp 2 sounds like a distortion pedal plugged into a home stereo (lacking any body or warmth or tone). I hope I'm missing something obvious but I doubt it.
    My signal chain....
    Guitar > Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 > iMac running Presonus Studio One 4 as my DAW > KRK Rocket 5 monitors.
    Tom Quayle's demo made this software sound fantastic. I will not gamble another $100 in order to see if the Celestion speaker bundle will help.
    Any suggestions?

    Grab some of my tones off the tone cloud, anything that says "LAR" on it. Especially the Trec and the 5153. They may not be your cup of tea, but I've never before in my life had a sound i could just throw on nearly any distorted guitar track and have it "work" so we can continue tracking, and often just the preset default will survive till final mix. In between crunch and clean I don;t really know how to make it work, but I don;t deal with that much
