Bias FX2 packaging



  • I am always intrigued as to how companies put together their "purchase packages". When I look at packaging it always seems that there is something (and some time a few things) in the package I would go to that I don't really need or want, and the 1 or 2 things things missing is in a more expensive package. I get it, this is what you do to market the up sell but it just leaves me a bit annoyed.

    With Bias FX2 the standard package has Guitar Match - Standard. I have no desire for Guitar Match. If I want a particular guitar I'll get the guitar. I would sooner have midi.

    To get midi I have to upgrade to the Professional package, but with this package I get Guitar - Match Professional which I still don't what. Oh, but it includes racks and that's alright

    But then when I look at the Ultimate package it has Fuzz, Time and Harmonizer modelers. How cool would that be? But it comes with Guitar Match Elite and guess what. I still don't want it.

    It would be nice if there was the ability to build our own bundles.

    If I could go with Ultimate without guitar match and add in the three modelers I would be a very satisfied customer (given midi works!),

  • @darcy-boyer total agreement on "Guitar Match" a feature I never dreamed BFX1 needed to be improved - it may be great for some people but I don't see it as a standard performance tool for most guitar players to be honest. Most guys want to be buried with their guitar... It might have been better as an Elite package only feature If at all - or a separate App even which I'd consider later for studio recordings. I don't even feel the need to try it out even with the elite package, seems like more lost valuable coding and testing time that might have been better suited to I don't know maybe more advanced midi like everyone asked for? or even just working out of the box. It does not have my guitar "match" I know for sure haha.



  • I agree with Darcy. The package bundles are a turnoff. We have virtual amps that mimic the real thing, virtual pedals that mimic the real thing, but the buying process has no basis in reality. Who goes into a guitar store and buys 35 pedals? No - you go try out one or two and buy the one you want.

    I'd like to see a way to try before buying. I'm interested in the TIme Modeler delay, but there's not a single description of what it does anywhere. I'm not shelling out $200 for an upgrade on a whim. I can put that money toward a Kemper.

    I sure as hell would have traded it for auto engage for the wah!
