Native Instruments Guitar Rig 2

The Sound of Guitar and Bass
GUITAR RIG 2 is a professional all-in-one software and hardware set-up for guitarists and bass players. The fantastic sound quality won GUITAR RIG 16 industry awards and artists' praise the world over. A huge range of authentically emulated amps and effects are perfectly complemented by a robust foot controller boasting an integrated, studio-quality sound card.

Doubling the power of the previous version, the possibilities of this award-winning modular solution are endless. From the most dulcet tones to the hardest riffs, GUITAR RIG 2 is in a league of its own.
Amps, Cabs, Mics and Stomp Boxes
The tones delivered by GUITAR RIG 2's Dynamic Tube Response technology are second to none. The huge selection of equipment is astounding: Choose from 8 amps, 15 guitar and 6 bass cabinets, 4 rotary speakers, 9 microphones with adjustable positioning and over 40 effects. Drag and drop any number of components into the virtual rack and arrange them into the desired order. A wide range of distortion, modulation, delay, reverb, pitch and volume effects allow the sound to be tuned, twisted and tweaked until the most tantalizing tones are obtained.
Foot Controller, Sound Card and DI Box
The Rig Kontrol 2 foot-controller has six foot switches and a multi-functional pedal with an extra switch. Integrated into the controller is a high-quality audio interface with inputs optimized for guitar and bass pick-ups. Rig Kontrol 2's advanced design, rugged construction and tough aluminium casing ensure it holds its own on the most demanding of stages. Plug in two guitars simultaneously; use the dedicated inputs and MIDI interface to patch in additional pedals and controllers. No set-up hassles, no extra hardware needed – just plug and rock!
Modulate and Loop
Use the Loop Machine to create and play back loops on the fly: Layer different leads, riffs and rhythms on top of one another and gradually build up entire guitar sections. Tools such as the Crossover and Split offer unique potential while the Modifiers' ability to modulate any of the parameters in real-time far exceed the realms of conventional set-ups. GUITAR RIG 2's exceptional sound quality and features make it the ideal choice – perfect for studios and stages of all sizes or just jamming at home or on the road.
