I am recording guitar sound in Reaper via a Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 (2nd Gen) interface, using the Bias FX 2 plugin. I've tried nearly all of the presets in the plugin and they all give a very fuzzy and overly distorted sound -- I'm not sure how to describe it but it doesn't sound right. The gain on the focusrite is turned all the way down. I get the same problem using the standalone Bias FX 2 program. My guitar is an Ibanez S621QM with hum-bucker pickups.

Here is a link to a sample, I'm just playing some open and power chords. This sample is using the "Rock > Back To 80's" preset.

If someone could offer advice on how to debug this I'd appreciate it!
