Native Instruments has announced Guitar Rig 4 Pro, the next generation of its guitar studio.

The new version introduces advanced cabinet and microphone modeling, providing an enhanced organic tone based on latency-free convolution technology, NI says. The advanced speaker emulation is also the basis for the new "Control Room" module, developed in collaboration with German studio guitarist and recording expert Peter Weihe. This new module is designed to allow users to freely mix and match up to eight phase-aligned studio microphones for each cabinet, allowing an unlimited range of high-end studio recording tones, according to NI.

To further expand its arsenal of modeled amplifiers, Guitar Rig 4 Pro offers two additional tube amp models that include the hot-rodded "Hot Plex" and the energetic "Jump", both based on Native Instruments' Dynamic Tube Response technology. The overall number of included effects is brought to 48.

Musicians who use Guitar Rig for live performance should benefit from the new, dedicated master effects section, which enables popular stage configurations that can now include global equalizers as well as overlapping delays and reverbs. For recording purposes, Guitar Rig 4 Pro also introduces true-stereo processing across the whole signal chain.

Guitar Rig 4 Pro introduces an overhauled preset browser with usability optimizations. With a new layout and compatibility with the KoreSound format from Native Instruments' Kore 2, even large collections of tones can be managed in a convenient way, NI says. Guitar Rig 4 Pro includes a pre-categorized and tagged arsenal of about 250 ready-to-play guitar sounds.

Improvements in Guitar Rig 4 Pro are said to include optimized sound quality for pitch-based effect modules, expanded host automation and controller assignment features, universal MIDI control functionality for the Rig Kontrol 3 pedal board and more.

Pricing & Availability
Guitar Rig 4 Pro will be available in October 2009 in various versions to accommodate guitarists and producers of all categories. The Guitar Rig 4 Pro software will be available for a suggested retail price of $199 / €179, and will also be part of the new Komplete 6 bundle.
