GUITAR RIG 3 lets you get a combination of stacks, cabs, and effects you can always rely on without ever leaving your home. If you're looking for the sound of vintage cabs and amps for your bass or guitar but don't have the time or money to go searching the local equipment stores Native Instruments Guitar Rig can set you up and help you avoid what may possibly be unreliable used equipment. The new version of this popular software delivers 12 amps, 17 guitar and 6 bass amps, 4 rotary speakers, and 9 microphones with adjustable positioning and 44 effects via your computer.
Note: All customers who purchase this product after 7/1/09 will receive a free downloadable update to Guitar Rig 4 Pro software, which will be released October 1.
Four of the new amp models worth mentioning are the Ultrasonic, Citrus, High White, and the Tweed Delight. Ultrasonic is a two-channel amp with a more modern sound, ultra-high gain, and a range in tonal qualities from clean to extreme metal. Citrus gives you the sound of the 70s, British invasion-style, offering full, warm sounds to "granular" distortion. The virtual 100 watts of the High White will have you playing in the sonic vein of David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Pete Townsend (The Who), and other British lead guitar stalwarts. The delight of Tweed Delight is it's simplicity. Despite having only three knobs, this amp, inspired by an American legend, runs the gamut from glass-clear to wailing blues.
The six new effects you 'll get are Sledge Hammer, a hammering overdrive/distortion-effect; Ring Modulator for the classic Ring-Mod effect; a Custom EQ and Vintage EQ; RealWah which emulates a modern wah-wah pedal; TapeEcho which gives your sound that left-field, outer space feel; and Delay Man, a delay effect with built-in chorus and vibrato. There's still 38 more time-based, modulation, distortion, overdrive, filter, and volume effects to play with, as well as a split module, crossover mix devices. You also get five modulators, a loop machine, and virtual tapedecks for helping you work on song ideas.
An on-board studio-quality soundcard routes the signal to your speakers where the drag-and-drop rack format and enhanced preset management system allows you to discover what combination works best for your sonic needs. There's no sound engineering experience necessary. This latest offering of GUITAR RIG comes with a "Matched Cabinet" feature that offers tried-and-true, classic combinations of amps and cabinets to make finding that "one sound" stress-free. The software's Dynamic Tube Response Technology recreates the various amps, cabs, mics, and effects in exacting detail, delivering perfect custom tone in seconds.

Comments about Native Instruments Guitar Rig 3 Software Edition:
I've been using the Guitar rig 3 software for a couple of months now and I have to say, it's an incredible program. I would have never thought a computer program could successfully emulate actual audio hardware so flawlessly. The quality is incredible, perfect for studio recording, there isn't a single tone this app cant produce, and it's simple to use. I definitely got my moneys worth out of this.
