As with all Native Instruments' products the package includes a clear manual and instructions on installation. The set up is easy, and once you actually open up the program you'll find that its easy to navigate and use. The software is really intuitive as well. The components are broken down into categories so you can find them quickly and add them to your preset. If you are just looking to use the factory presets Guitar Rig 4 has a great browser which allows you to find what your looking for based on criteria like "style", "effect", and type of guitar.


I've been using Guitar Rig 4 for about a year now, and I've had a great experience. It is not too CPU intensive, so having multiple instances running at the same time is no problem. I use it with FL Studio 10 on six core, 6GB RAM CPU running Windows 7.


I was a little skeptical about getting Guitar Rig 4 because I was using IK Multimedia's Amplitube Fender, which I was enjoying a lot. When I got it though, it was great. Not only was I getting great results routing Music Lab's Real LPC through it I was only sing it on every other instrument. Piano's and strings sounded awesome with the creative presets that come with Guitar Rig 4. I was able to create totally new sounds which really added to my beats. I've tired making my own presets but I love the factory ones so much I just use those. There are plenty of them, and they range from weird psychedelic effects to normal guitar amps. Now that I've tried IK Multimedia's Amplitube Fender as well as Guitar Rig 4 I would definitely make the decision to buy Guitar Rig 4. It's a great software guitar amp as well as program capable of turning traditional sounds into fun creative ones.
