EFFECTS AND TOOLS

GUITAR RIG 5 PRO delivers 54 meticulously modeled stomp boxes and effects, from legendary foot pedals to complex studio tools. Use them on anything — vocals, synths, drums, organs, or whatever else is in your mix. Whether it’s classic guitar tones or avant-garde soundscapes, these effects deliver.

DISTORTION AND OVERDRIVE

GUITAR RIG 5 PRO provides you with eleven fuzz, distortion and overdrive units. These components are accurate reproductions of classic hardware devices, and sound just like the originals.

REVERB AND DELAY

We took extra care to deliver the finest selection of virtual delays and reverbs available. Based on award-winning NI algorithms, these units add the right space and distance in any setup.

MODULATION

These perfectly-modeled effects can add subtle movement, vintage vibrations or dramatic dynamics, from a swirling 70s phaser to volatile synthesizer sounds.

FILTERS

Filtering is one of the most powerful ways to shape your sound, and GUITAR RIG 5 PRO offers several great tools to do it. Choose from an impressive range of filter-based effects, from wah-wahs to EQs.

LEVELS AND DYNAMICS

Take control of your levels with this collection of compressors, limiters, noise gates, and volume pedals. Add bite, max-out the levels before running into other effects, or boost your signals into overdrive.

CUSTOM MULTI-EFFECTS

The Container Module is a utility for creating 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.

Master FX allows you to keep effects engaged while switching between presets. Put global effects like reverb and delay into a Master FX module. This will stay at the end of your signal chain, regardless of what happens in front of it.

SPLITTERS

The Split Module allows you to create parallel effects chains. Split the sound in two, process each stream with different effects and then mix the results back together at the end. Insert one anywhere in the rack.

The Crossover Mix device splits the signal into high and low frequencies. This lets you apply effects to the high frequencies only, leaving the low frequencies untouched as a solid foundation for the sound.

MODIFIERS

Analog Sequencer – Up to 16 adjustable steps for more variable triggering.

Input Level – An envelope follower that scans the volume of the input signal and transforms it into a control signal. Useful for dynamic response effects e.g. the louder you play, the more distortion you get.

Step Sequencer – Up to 16 on/off steps for ‘hard’ triggering.

Multi-Step Envelope – Graphical sound editing! The shape of the curve defines the modulation.

LFO (low frequency oscillator) – With five waveforms and a choice of continuous or arbitrary modulation.

LOOP MACHINE

Record a riff, loop it, and solo over the top. Play a synth bassline and experiment with accompaniments. Or create complex multi-part vocal harmonies. Sync the Loop Machine to the tempo of your host sequencer, and export either the layered loop or the individual layers.

TAPE DECKS

The Tape Decks are a great tool for recording and capturing ideas. Use time-stretching to slow down a riff while practicing, or use the pitch-shifting function to transpose a riff into a different key. The Tape Decks play wave files and MP3s. Play along to the loops provided or load your own backing tracks.

TUNER AND METRONOME

Besides simple, precise tuning, the Tuner offers presets for common tunings, such as Chromatic, Bass, Open D / E / G / A, and DADGAD. A Cent mode and Strobe mode provide two different visual pointers, and the Mute mode lets you tune silently.
The Metronome is not only for keeping time – it also serves as the clock for all synchronized rack modules, such as modulation and delay effects. Easily adjustable and with numerous helpful features, Metronome will help keep your playing tight.
