Why no cabinet sim?



  • I see that Bias fx includes cabinet sims. I wonder why it was left out of the Spark. I understand that it is tuned for the external speaker but there is a headphone jack and a digital out. I put in a request to add it to future firmware. Anyone else agree or have any insight?



  • @valascia I think that PG has a long-term vision in place in which they will at some time in the not-too-distant future put out a "Spark Amp Pro" app that will cost money, or will be free but have in-app purchases available where we will be able to purchase things like additional pedals, the ability to re-arrange the sequence of pedals, additional amp models, and the introduction of speaker cabinet models. My guess is that single items will be available for sale or there will be packages available like there are with BiasFX or with Amplitube from IKMultimedia.

    After all, once the market is saturated with Spark amps so the sales slows down PG will need some sort of income source to keep going and they already have the programming knowledge and a lot of the data already compiled so it shouldn't be too difficult for them to offer a lot of the Bias FX stuff for use with the Spark.

    I hope they will make Spark connect package option for BIAS FX2 Mobile users to let use all possible sound with Spark. Got mine today, enjoy it a lot, but app and choice of amps and fx very weak comparing to FX2 I paid for, so hope they find some options... What I miss a lot already is ability to change presets etc. using blueboard pedal...
