Positive Grid has unveiled its latest amps and effects guitar plugin; and things are about to get big. "OMNYSS is built to create epic, cinematic soundscapes and fuel massive tonal exploration," says the company of its BIAS FX 2-powered product.

OMNYSS is driven by a new DSP engine with three guitar amps and six effects, and each of the amps is paired with its own synth-based black box effect to create 'complex layers underneath the gain stage'. Sounds intriguing! 

In addition, there's a range of classic and boutique mics and three dynamically modelled cab IRs. Here's a rundown of what's on offer:
