TWO NEW AMPS
The Van 51 delivers superstar signature sound from hard rock to blistering crunch — great for drop tunings and menacing palm-muted chug.

The Hot Solo+ recalls a classic hand-wired amp with a boutique, responsive overdriven tone. For expressive, singing solos that still sound heavy as hell, the Hot Solo+ is your amp.

SIX NEW EFFECTS
Fast Comp — A warm, vintage-style compressor for keeping your peaks in check. Essential for clean sounds.

Vintage Verb — Eight different classic plate and spring reverbs. Not just for retro — also great for adding class and character.

Little Reflektor — Advanced convolution reverb, based on the acclaimed REFLEKTOR, with eight impulse responses plus decay and low cut control.

Stereo Tune — Not a tuner! Spreads and detunes the stereo image for a fatter sound and de-tuned effects.

Filterbank — Drastically transform your sound with this powerful 8-band filter, with a global frequency shift and stretch parameter for highly expressive effects.

Resochord — Turn notes into chords and get shimmering, resonating sci-fi chorus with this six-pole harmonizer.

CUSTOM MULTI-EFFECTS: CONTAINER
The new Container is a utility module for creating and storing multi-effects and custom channel strips. Assemble your processing chain, then assign the eight macro-controls to the key controls on any of the effects in the chain. It's a great way to get simple control over your sound, and an essential tool for performance.

CONTROL ROOM PRO
Extending the already comprehensive mix options in the Control Room, the new 'Pro' version gives you eight custom setups at once, for the ultimate in extravagant, almost limitless fine-tuning. Arm each track of the 8-track mixer with your choice of cabinet, mics and positioning. Choose from 27 cabinets, up to 16 microphones and up to three mic positions, including room mics. Then juggle the levels for intense sonic perfection.

Control Room Pro is powered by high-quality impulse responses from Redwirez.

OVER 130 NEW PRESETS
The sound designers at NATIVE INSTRUMENTS have been busy with the new amps and effects, and they've created over 130 new presets. Highlights include an array of warm, absolutely realistic clean sounds, a number of searing distortion presets and ready-to-use multi FX.

ADDED SIDE-CHAINING
Side-chaining is an extremely useful technique for reducing sonic clutter and creative 'pumping' effects. GUITAR RIG 5 PRO adds side-chain inputs to a number of compressors and Modifier modules, making it easy to incorporate this technique into your effects chains.

  • Four New Amp Models

  • GUITAR RIG 3 contains four new select amp models, further expanding the enormous sound palette. Special attention has been focused on developing still more authentic and dynamic tube sounds. We are proud to present even more impressive amplifiers with unequaled sound quality. For each amplifier as well as the Cabinets & Mic modules, a matching guitar box has been created.

  • Matched Cabinets

  • For each of the twelve tube amps GUITAR RIG 3 has styled a perfectly tuned and enormously simplified cabinet, which reproduces the sound of the original box.
    Here you can choose between two different microphone types, and select the different characteristics of each.
    This makes it easy to arrive at your desired sound in seconds, without needing the extensive knowledge of a sound engineer.

  • Six New Effect Modules

  • TapeEcho, Delay Man, Sledge Hammer, Real Wah, Custom EQ, Ring Modulator

  • Accelerated Workflow

  • All functions such as the headline and the toolbar have been optimized- a simpler layout and clearer arrangement leads to a substantially improved work flow.

  • Simplified Controller Assignment

  • The controller assignment has been completely revised and enables a faster handling and greater flexibility:
    You can now assign several functions to any button of the Rig Kontrol 3, so that as many effects as desired can be switched on or off at the same time.
    The new Snapshot function permits the placing of different variations of a rack making the switching between complex sounds very fast - great for live situations.
    With the Link function external controllers can be merged with the switches of the virtual Rig Kontrol 3, and therefore integrated smoothly with the software

  • New Sounds and Optimized Preset Management

  • GUITAR RIG 3 comes with a completely re-arranged sound library. The enormous sound pallete with 300 presets and/or preset setups brings you a gigantic selection of typical guitar sounds - for each amplifier model common and co-ordinated setups are provided for fast selection (e.g.- from clean to crunch or hi-gain) - or search for your sounds using typical music styles from classic rock to pop to metal.

  • Live View

  • GUITAR RIG 3 has developed the "live-view" specifically for live situations. This view contains only the most important information and parameters optimized to make GUITAR RIG 3 the unbeatable tool for the stage - even from several meters distance everything is still in clear view.

    Rig Kontrol 2: Foot-Controller with Audio and MIDI Interface
    Completely revised foot-controller with seven foot-switches and a pedal, integrated USB 2.0 audio interface, MIDI interface and a headphone jack.
    Thus GUITAR RIG 2 is a complete, convenient "plug & rock" soft and hardware combination: Your computer, guitar (or bass) and GUITAR RIG 2 are all you will ever need!

    New Amps
    GUITAR RIG 2 now offers four new, perfectly emulated tube amps including one bass amp – all in an unrivalled quality thanks to Native Instruments' unique Dynamic Tube Response technology:
    Tweedman
    Jazz Amp
    Lead 800
    BASS VT

    New Cabinets and Microphones
    Five new guitar and six new bass cabinets as well as three additional bass microphones are included. Increasing the number of cabinets to a total of 25 and the number of microphones to 9. All components have been accurately modelled on legendary hardware equipment and their sonic characteristics boast a sonic quality that is barely distinguishable from the originals.
    New guitar cabinets:
    2X12 JAZZ
    ROTATOR HORN CLS
    ROTATOR HORN OPN
    ROTATOR BASS CLS
    ROTATOR BASS OPN
    D.I.-BOX
    New bass cabinets
    1x15 BASS-VT
    1x15 BASS-WR
    4x10 BASS- VT
    4x10 BASS-WR
    8x10 BASS- VT
    8x10 BASS-WR
    New Mics
    Dynamic 7
    Condenser 47
    Condenser 460
    Dynamic 20

    New Effects:
    GUITAR RIG 2 includes 8 new effects in an uncompromising sound quality:

    8 new effects
    Trans Amp: versatile distortion box
    Mezone: metal distortion
    AutoFilter: perfect auto wahwah, e.g. for funk
    Stomp Compressor: new compressor with an especially tight and clean sound
    Pro Filter: NI PRO-53 synthesizer filter – analog and simply fat!
    Gain Booster: extra gain for radical boosting of gain to attain even more overdrive etc
    Noise Reduction: affects the signal similarly to a noise gate, but has a less abrupt action
    Cry Wah - new WahWah modelled after a famous hardware wah.

    Loop Machine
    Loop and overdub phrases
    The ultimate phrase-loop and overdub machine for layering up to 99 loops/layers. With unlimited duration, multiple undo/redo, separate export of all layers, temposync and much more – perfect to accompany yourself "on-the-fly"!

    Modifiers
    Five modifier components, well known in the world of synthesizers, set any sound parameter in motion in soft or vivid movements:

    LFO (low frequency oscillator) with five waveforms – for continuous or arbitrary modulation
    Analog Sequencer - 16 adjustable steps for variable triggering of sound parameters
    Input Level – an "envelope follower" scanning the volume of the input signal and transforming it into a control signal, e.g. the louder you play, the more the wahwah opens
    Step Sequencer - 16 on/off steps for "hard" triggering of sound parameters
    Multi-step envelope – for "drawing" sound progressions (as in FM7, KONTAKT)

    Crossover
    This device is similar to the Split module, in that it splits the signal path in two directions, thus allowing parallel effects. However, in this case, you can set a dividing line ("crossover point") in the frequency response, and send lower frequencies to one split and higher frequencies to the other split.

    New Presets
    GUITAR RIG 2 now offers more than 100 additional presets/setups using the new components. The total amount of presets is now more than 500!

    Other new features:
    "Volume Learn Function" in Cabinets & Mics, to assign volume while playing
    "Output Volume Learn Function" assigns output volume while playing
    Input Mute buttons for Spring Reverb, Studio Reverb, Quad Delay, Psyche Delay
    Phase switch in Split Mix
    Modulation Matrix
    Full Screen Mode
    High Resolution Mode

    I'm conflicted about rating the software, becuase when it works, it is fantastic. there is nothing on the market that comes close.
    i purchased the original GR and had great luck with it. it installed easily, worked great. i played out live with it and had great results.
    but after waiting many, many months to get a universal binary release, i still don't have it working. they were completely unresponsive to their customers during the 10 plus months we had to wait for universal binary. toward the end, they started finally responding on the forums saying very simply, "please be patient." at this point, they had missed their own promised deadlines over 5 times without telling anyone. they would just quietly change the due date on an obscure page of their site.
    i purchased the software only upgrade thinking i could use the original hardware controller. after a couple months of trying to get it to work, and reading a novel worth of forum posts, i finally broke down and just bought the full 2nd version with the new controller.
    then i got into the same situation RegHater had. I installed it, and it didnt work. dug around and found out that there were upgrades. So i had to install several updates, each one requiring a reboot. also i had to authenticate (which i didn't want to do until i got my refund for the software only version). after all that, it still didnt work.
    their offices close at 5, so i couldnt get support except through a web form.
    the instructions do not do a good job of explaining the differences between GR1 and GR2, which are fundamental in nature. No one from NI answers the forums. their software is counterintuitive to install, time consuming to setup, the instructions are extremely limited with no troubleshooting or explanation of what to do when it doesnt work. and i can guarantee there will be a time when it doesnt work.
    other than that the software is great, when it works. the sound is incredible. i just hate the fact that NI is the company behind it.

    2.2.1 is out now, but bypass still doesn't work with Digital Performer 5.1.1.

    If you go to their website and log in, if shows version 2.2.0 was released January 25th 2007....I don't get it.
    This plug in has become more stable and responsive, but still has some challenges including the inability to bypass it using the normal bypass button in Digital Performer...

    So far, I am impressed! The ability to instantly switch between presets is getting better and better... Amazing software!

    Hmmm,
    This product has amazing potential, but I'm a little concerned about a few glitches, the hardware, and the company's militant stance against their customers. (Even their voicemail (which I got during business hours Friday afternoon) sounds impatient and grouchy) For the $500 list price, you can get some pretty good dedicated hardware products that may be more usable/dependable in a live situation. If you already have a high speed computer, audio interface, some good monitors and use DAW software this is a purchase to consider... Time will tell if they make it worth it.
    I'm once of those guys who owns several thousands of dollars worth of pro audio software, and I hate it when these companies make you jump through hoops to use the software you've bought. (My $600+ investment in Bitheadz Unity Session is now toast since they're out of business) On the other hand Mark of the Unicorn has made Digital Performer very reasonably simple to authorize and reinstall if needed.
    When you buy Guitar Rig you have 30 days to try it out (which could be nice), but it ships with an old version of the software 1.0, and you can't download the update without registering... Once you register there's no going back... and it appears from the strong language on the CD that you can't even sell it if you ever want to....
    Initial Observations: The Hardware Controller doesn't come with an A/C adapter which I think it short sighted for a $500 product. C'Mon, give the customer a $10? item with his investment. There is only one light on the controller (showing that your 9V battery is ok for now) There needs to be some kind of display showing the patch name and or number... (The 9V battery connector wires were too short and hooked through the battery holder which made getting the battery in near impossible)....
    The controller itself is too little to be totally useful and while it seems to be indestructible, it's seems overkill making it really heavy. (Aren't we going for light and efficient here?) OK, so you get past these first few things and hook it up. (I personally think using audio for a control signal is a bit old fashioned)
    Installation went well, but again, you can't even download the current version of the product without registering (see above)
    Using it: Well the tone and the ability to edit it is nothing short of pretty amazing, and I think that's the saving grace of this product.
    Using it live will be a challenge because there's a pause, glitch, or slow fade, when changing from 1 preset to another. Hope this gets fixed sometime soon. The lack of any display on the foot controller means you're going to be looking at your computer screen to see what sound you're selecting.
    Yes, the sound and editing capabilities are amazing making this a nice addition to the studio, but what about live?
