Native Instruments Releases GUITAR RIG 3.1
(Native Instruments | Posted 2008-04-07)
Native Instruments has just released GUITAR
RIG 3.1, a free software update for its acclaimed digital guitar studio.
The new version offers optimized high-precision modeling for improved
sound quality as well as several usability enhancements, further
expanding the unique power and versatility that make GUITAR RIG an
ideal creative tool for modern guitarists and producers.
Based on recent engineering progress, GUITAR RIG 3.1 has been
equipped with optimized high-precision algorithms, which result in a
significantly reduced noise floor for virtual amps and stomp box
components with no increase in processor load. This now enables
GUITAR RIG to deliver rich, saturated high-gain tones without the usual
amount of associated background hiss.
Further improvements in version 3.1 include the new ability to
conveniently handle multiple rack components at once, an optimized Live
View with more customization options, enhanced Rig Kontrol integration,
extended support for external foot pedals, and a revised user manual.
Based on the many advances in the third generation of GUITAR RIG, the
system has recently been adopted by high-profile artists like Kirk
Hammett from Metallica, Beck bassist Justin Meldal-Johnsen and
YouTube virtuoso sensation Gustavo Guerra, and used as the main guitar
recording solution in professional studio productions such as the
upcoming Alanis Morissette album “Flavors of Entanglement”.
The 3.1 update is now available as a free download for registered users of
GUITAR RIG 3 Kontrol Edition and Software Edition.
