GUITAR RIG is Native Instruments multi-effects rack and guitar amplifier simulator, delivering cutting-edge circuit modelling technology to recreate classic and contemporary tones that can be used live or in the studio. Featuring a modular design that allows you to layer guitar effects and amplifier components quickly and easily, GUITAR RIG is also at the forefront of sound design for guitar, bass, and other live instruments.
Our flagship guitar amp software, GUITAR RIG 6 PRO combines the latest machine learning ICM (Intelligent Circuit Modeling) technology with a new look, new amps, and new effects, to help you build realistic guitar amplifier emulations in any genre. Create unique processing chains to customize your tones, adding space, warmth, and character to everything from guitar and bass, to strings, drums, synths and more.
Recreate classic and iconic guitar amplifier tones from the past century or build something entirely new by combining multiple amp heads in parallel, adding powerful effects, and switching up cabinets for the ultimate flexibility and creativity in sound design. Choose from distortion, saturation, compression, modulation, reverb and 54 other effects including Tape Echo, Spring Reverb and PsycheDelay — plus classic stompboxes, filters and more.
With GUITAR RIG you can instantly emulate your favorite artists with presets from guitarists, bassists, producers, and songwriters like Yvette Young, Vernon Reid, Pete Thorn, Zola Jesus, and Eric Krasno. In fact, you can make music in any genre using our flagship digital guitar amp software that puts you in complete control of your tone!
