Guitar Rig has traditionally come with the Rig Kontrol hardware controller that is of little use and an unneccessary expense to anyone who just uses Guitar Rig as a plug-in but now Native Instruments has announced Guitar Rig 2 Software Edition, a software-only
version of its award-winning digital guitar studio.
Geared toward producers
looking for a professional yet affordable guitar and bass recording
solution, NI say that the Software Edition provides the complete arsenal of highly
acclaimed amp emulations and effect modules that has won Guitar Rig more
than 20 international press awards to date. Guitar Rig 2 Software Edition offers
the full functionality of the software without any limitations, with only
the Rig Kontrol pedal remaining exclusive to the standard Guitar Rig 2
Nils Krueger, Product
Manager Guitar Division at Native Instruments, "While guitarists love the functionality of the Rig Kontrol, Guitar Rig also
proved to be very popular with producers who don't necessarily need a
controller pedal in their studio environment. The Guitar Rig 2 Software
Edition specifically accommodates this way of working in an even more
attractive price range."
Guitar Rig 2 Software Edition is based on the upcoming 2.2 version of the
Guitar Rig software, which will offer three additional components and will
also include support for Intel-based Macintosh computers. The Guitar Rig 2.2
update will be made available later this month. Pricing and Availability:
Guitar Rig 2 Software Edition will be available in November 2006 for a
suggested retail price of $ 339 / 299 Euro from authorized dealers and in
the NI Online Shop.
