Guitar Rig is a powerful piece of software that can be used for creating guitar and bass tones, as well as complex effect chains for virtually any musical purpose. It is like a room filled with legendary amplifiers with endless arrays of cabinets, each with different microphones; any effect you desire or wish to create; a loop machine, and other amazing tools for crafting sounds at your immediate disposal. Guitar Rig comes in four different editions: Factory Selection, LE, Elements Selection, and Pro — differing in the number of included components. But no matter which version of Guitar Rig you have, you can easily load it up using Powered by Guitar Rig products, expanding the selection of components for guitarists, producers, and DJ’s too. Additional Guitar Rig products will be released regularly in the future. Please check the Native Instruments website for the latest products.
What’s New in Guitar Rig 5?
Guitar Rig 5 implements many improvements to the software. Here’s what’s new in comparison to older versions:
- Two new amps have been created for contemporary high gain lead sounds: the Hot Solo+ and the Van 51.
- ▪ A new Cabinets component has been created called Control Room Pro. This takes the concepts of Control Room and the original Cabinets & Mics and expands upon both.
- In the Filters section, there is a new Filterbank, with which you can create entirely new synth textures with any instrument.
- Resochord is a favorite effect borrowed from Native Instruments´ Maschine. It consists of a bank of tuned comb filters which imprint their harmonic content on to any audio signal.
- Stereo Tune widens the stereo field of your signal, making tracks come alive.
- Two new Reverb components are on offer: the Little Reflektor and Vintage Verb selections.
- Last, and certainly not least, is the new Container, a rack inside the Guitar Rig rack. It is perfect to create complex multi-effect-chains with an easy to use control interface, and brings a whole new level of functionality to Guitar Rig setups.
- Sidechaining is a whole new function that makes Guitar Rig even more useful for the studio.
- Presets are now saved in separate User and Factory folders. User presets are now saved under Documents > Native Instruments > Guitar Rig 5 > Sounds. Factory Presets can not be overwritten but they can be removed from the preset browser.
