GUITAR RIG 5
Guitar Rig 5 is the latest in Native Instruments guitar amp modelling software. It features 2 new models, namely “Van51” and “HotSolo+” which are both pretty full on types of heavy overdrive based distortion. It features a new classic compressor model, the reverb “vintage verb” with various plate and spring emulations, a new convolution reverb, an analog-modeled 8-band filterbank, the new “stereo tune” chorus, and a unique “Resochord” harmonizer.
A cool new feature is the “Control Room pro” model, a speaker emulator allowing up to 8 cabinets to be combined at a any one time. You can mix and match from 27 cabinets and 16 types of microphone, you have control over mic placement and room sound, and I can’t think anyone could need more than that, no matter how “experimental” you wanted to get.
For those of you who want to integrate Guitar Rig 5 further into your production, it also has a new side chaining function which can be assigned to any stereo input.
Finally, there is a new feature called “container” which allows the creation of FX chains that are easy to create and recall for live work.
And speaking of live work, check out the controller pedal/audio interface.
A proper robust piece of kit that performs incredibly well.
