Default Bias fx plugin too loud and clipping. How to reduce or use a limiter?

I have been liking bias fx and the tones i have made with it. I use it in reaper and it sounds great until i play heavy and i get clipping and low end fuzz. I was told to use a limiter but i cant figure out any configuration to work or what limiter to use. Im still learning reaper and daw features but i have basic knowledge. Any advice would be appreciated. Anyone else have this problem?

Hi and welcome to the forums.
What are you using as your audio/MIDI interface?

The quick and dirty answer temporarily is to cut the volume control on your guitar back so it doesnt clip on the loud bits.

I assume you already downloaded th free User Guide from on here & watched some if not all the free video tutorials.
If you check out one of the early sections of the manual on setting your computer etc up for multitrack recording it will help you to understand how to gain stage correctly.

Have fun!

Bias has an Output Level control. Turn that down. ???

Unless the clipping is happening on the way in, like if the guitar signal is too hot.
Which sounds like the problem here.
