[Wine] BIAS Amp 2

Postby finotti » Fri Sep 07, 2018 3:47 am

I've got a free copy of BIAS Amp 2 (https://www.positivegrid.com/bias-amp/) through Focusrite and would like to test it. Was anyone ever able to run it with Wine?

I could install it fine, and Carla finds it. When I run it in Carla, sometimes when I open the GUI I only get a blank screen. After opening and closing a few times I see a blank white screen. At the third (or so) time I open it, I get page with "Positive Grid - BIAS Amp 2" and nice background, but nothing is clickable or anything. If I make the connections, I do get sound from it, and I can edit some amp's (whatever the default is, I suppose) parameters...

If I open the .exe with wine:

Code: Select all

$ wine BIAS_AMP2_x64.exe

For what it's worth (actually nothing both because it's free and it does not address the problem with the BIAS Amp) I run the Amplitube 4 CS as VST in Bitwig and Mixbus32C using wine-staging and linvst. It comes with one amp, a delay and a EQ and perhaps a foot pedal or two. I find the sound pretty good for something basically free.

With an IK account, users can go online, open the Amplitube Custom Shop app,
browse the many gear models, and test them for for a period of time.
A handy way to purchase just what you will really use, alacart.
Cheers

Nope, it just won't work. Something in Wine is not implemented at this time. The only thing you can do about that is to file a bug report to Wine team.
