Guitar Rig to the Power of 5

Native Instruments Guitar Rig Pro 5 Review

Within a few years, Guitar Rig has become a reference in the world of guitar amps and effects simulation. The fourth version, which saw the light of day about two years ago, already brought major sound quality improvements with itself thanks to the new –however limited— Control Room feature... Can the German manufacturer surprise us with this fifth version? Read on... Read more…

    Nothing to add.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    It sounds pretty dull on monitoring speakers. The sound doesn't cut through.
    The lows are scanty.
    It's obvious, you'd say, since monitoring speakers have a flat response.

    Nevertheless, you'd think manufacturers do their modelings with this type of speakers in acoustically treated studios.
    Unless it's my room, which isn't treated (although I have a room-correction system).
    It's beyond me.

    It sounds better on my AKG studio headphones (which are a bit flattering).

    I still haven't tested it with my amp's return (I'm on it).

    This is not really a detailed product but rather a general consensus opinion.

    it has been many times that I see passing rather negative view of Guitar Rig 5 while personally I use it on almost all of my guitar tracks and I can get really good results (in my opinion it is always subjective ). All these reviews makes me feel disappointed that users were unable to use it effectively. So I decided to emit some recommendations to make the most of this plug interesting.

    1. noise or other painful buzz.

    Depending on the guitar (single coil pickup especially) may have noise. It is not related to guitar rig. This is the same problem with all plug guitars. This is mainly the guitar itself.......

All these reviews makes me feel disappointed that users were unable to use it effectively. So I decided to emit some recommendations to make the most of this plug interesting.

    1. noise or other painful buzz.

    Depending on the guitar (single coil pickup especially) may have noise. It is not related to guitar rig. This is the same problem with all plug guitars. This is mainly the guitar itself. I recommend trying the following:
    - Move away from computer screens see éteindres during shooting,
    - Turn with the guitar until you find an angle or there are more parasites,
    - Set the input of the instrument proper way level
    - Finally, consider using the noise gate very well.

    2 The sound quality of the final

    Always think that these plug simulate several elements chain: Effects, a preamp, a cabinet and a microphone with his placement. The sound you hear in the end is compared not with what comes out of a classical guitar amp but with that comes a recorder at the end of a recording session in the cabin.
    For my part, given the acoustics of my home studio, I get better results with guitar rig when I record the guitar to amp output (I have yet a good amp and good microphones ).

    For a good overall sound, it takes much work input levels of the guitar's sound card and input levels and output plugin. Depending on the settings can have get very good sounds like very bad. this is particularly evident for distos. These levels also vary often depending guitars themselves. So watching before each sound.
    With a good setup, you can get a lot of headroom and even tubesque heat (yes).

    We can also mix Harware and Software. It happens often enough to use a real effect and make it fit into the amp simulated guitar rig and it works fine pedal.

    I invite users to look at how are made the factory presets and work slowly changing one then two settings to see the changes in the sound (or type of microphone placement for example).

    3 Hidden effect settings

    We do not think it necessarily but clicking on the triangle at the bottom right of the effects in the rack panel is opened with very substantial additional settings. We discover, for example, sync functions for some time to expand or stereo sound.

    4. weaknesses yet?

    Although with guitar rig 5 this point has been largely improved, one can find that on some clear sound simulation software is still lagging behind compared to real amps. This is probably true but the quality of the guitar pickups plays an important role in this type of sound even with a plugin.

    5 Is this the best plugin for the guitar?

    I do not know. I do not know all far from it. I think it's a plug in very full and powerful and it is much better than what is said in general. I invite disappointed to open new ...

    no problem, nothing to report.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    beautiful palette of sounds, exelente quality for a plug (even when we do not have the same sound quality as the amp to 2000 €). ago, lack of heat, I offset my guitar through a TL Audio preamp 5050 ivory.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I advise you to play at any time through headphones. his palette can be very convenient for recording, as the guitar is not the main element, in this case, prefer a nice big tube amp.

    The software is also very stable , no crashes occurred while using it over a bunch of effects and different presets , no bugs , nothing.

    I'm getting awesome results in creating some powerful riffs , typical found in rock and pop , this is a top quality guitar amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I like those 14 guitar amps , the 48 amazing guitar effects including distortions, flangers, choruses, tremolos, wah-wahs, pitch shifting, delays and reverbs and even a fun one , like a loop machine.

    The preset browser is very fast and easy to use , you get around 250 completely new, high-quality presets for different genres including pop , rock , jazz , etc.

    A master effect is also present , which I totally enjoy using , and of course the Room Control that gives room to the sound , a warm space and a slower attack.

    My opinion about the value for the price is good , this amp costs around 199 $ , not much if you'll consider all the features you get on your pc.

    Precision and quality of the sound is truly amazing , very rich , textured sound while using this software.

    Knowing what I know , I would make the same choice because Native Instruments never disappointed me while using many of their products , indeed this is a top electronic amp.

    The program works on any platform either Windows XP, Windows Seven or MAC OS , so compatibility issues isn't a real problem.

    The manual included with the program is great , Native Instruments made a great book explaining the main functions and their use with the product.

    The general configuration and setup is simple , I haven't had any problems with it , and it took me about 3 minutes to get it done.

    The typical functions are easy to spot trough a great designed window that has a lot of presets on it.

    The software works good in this configuration , everything is well settled without any type of misunderstandings.

    The gear and software is very stable and works quite smooth and great.

    I'm getting very good performances in emulating a nice electric or bass guitar that isn't very far away from recording a live one.

    I've been using Guitar Rig from Native Instruments for about one year.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What I like most about it are the build in presets where you can choose from a certain style a different type of emulation directly linked to your music or your intentions.

    I do like as well how big and powerful this amp is , you can get a very distinct and powerful type of sound , which is found only in some great amp out there.

    The design and the low cpu resources needed to run this program is another factor which makes this product even better.

    My opinion about value of price is great , this product is probably the most powerful and pro digital amp in the music world , so don't hesitate , this is the right deal if you're searching for something like that.

    Precision and quality of the sound is 10/10 , without a doubt , very good program.

    Knowing what I know , I would get this program right away.

  • GR5 = Total Effects Suite

    I am an owner of Komplete 8 Ultimate from Native Instruments. The first product I bought from Native Instruments was Guitar Rig 3. After several software upgrades, Guitar Rig 5 is no longer just for amp sim, it is designed to be a total effects suite including reverbs, console EQs, hardware compressors, etc. If you don't own K8U, then Guitar Rig can be expanded by purchasing more products from NI.
    The software can be downloaded directly from the NI website and is authorized using the NI Service Center application.

    The software can be downloaded directly from the NI website and is authorized using the NI Service Center application.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    If you are interested in Guitar Rig for its amp simulation, there are some great things about it compared with other options (Pod Farm, Amplitube, TH2, Eleven, etc). I really like the new cabinets in GR5, which are a huge improvement from GR4. The amp selection is decent, but I find I like some of the quintessential amp models in other software better (JCM800, Plexi, Twin, Bassman). I think the AC30 model is really good in GR5 compared to other software. I can't compare to owning the real amp, but I like it better than most other amp sim models I have heard. The Ultrasonic amp is unique to GR5 and is great for a full range of guitar tones - from clean to heavy, and most importantly in the slightly overdriven range.
    The big advantage of GR5 over other amp sim software is the quality of post-processing effects. NI and Softube paired up to model some great compressors, 1176, LA-2A, DBX-160. There are also models of a bunch of SSL stuff including EQs, and compressors. Nothing comparable to this really exists in software like Amplitube.
    Guitar Rig 5 also has extremely flexible routing compared to other software. This opens up the possibility for some really unusual and creative processing.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Analog modeling has come a long way. With each version of Guitar Rig, Native Instruments has taken one step closer to getting a computer to sound like analog hardware. Although modeling may not sound exactly like the real thing, software also has some inherent advantages over hardware. With GR5, your processing options are mostly limited by how fast your computer can run, and not whether you can afford a JCM800, and a Plexi, and a 1176, and a SSL mix-bus compressor, and a hundred effects pedals. Software opens up a whole new world for the modern musician to be creative. GR5 is more than just amp simulation, it is a total effects suite. Another good thing is that NI has recently started releasing some of the effects from GR5 as individual plug-ins. For a while I neglected opening up GR5 if I wanted a LA-2A compressor, because I could just open up Waves CLA-2A. Now that I have the NI/Softube model as an individual plug-in, I was open it instead of the Waves plug-in because it has nice features like parallel compression built right in.

    I added a cooler to have no unwanted crackling when recording (Sonar Sub)
    I use the pedal / guitar rig 3 sound card to drive this. Super easy configuration at the first connection and the opening of standalone software. We can say that GR 5 is a little more demanding than GR4, especially in the new amps / cabs (Evh, Satriani) but works with the laptop.
    Drivers are recognized by three PC and the program audio settings to check the latency, the definition audio, short audio settings.
    2 PCs. No worries with the most recent in 2009 under Vista (2 GB ram), but the XP PC is experiencing some problems with Guitar Rig 5 (for normal PC 2002, 512 MB of RAM), a brief relic. But it runs fairly well under Grig 4.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Maintenand 3 months and I can say it is really superior to Guitar Rig 4 Pro, fortunately. Because the software now has big sounds, what it lacked in really comparing Overloud Revalver.
    Note, unlike some other software, it is found that the sound of his guitar.
    But as I am still not satisfied, there are still things to do on the side of big fat sound: at least I think so.
    Otherwise, the configuration is very practical, lightweight, stable, and what a delight on stage (yes, yes) do not have ears shattered to hear the feedback. I must say that our drummer uses an electronic system: Roland and I have rarely been satisfied mixes on stage for 20 years.
    At this price, our pianist keyboard also decided to make the step. More amp, one midi keyboard and a laptop.
    For 69 euros (downloaded software) + a pedalboard used Grig 3 (150 euros), of course, I run, I fly,

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this software since version 1 and version I have owned all in the hope of an improvement. The deception.

    to get into the details:

    Whether for use as live or VST plug-in:

    -Most:

    Simulation-cab very successful and much improved since version 1. I will say is the big success of this program.

    Delay and reverb-clean and efficient.

    Audio-player practice with the detune function and slowed, it is a handy tool to practice playing on the audio tracks.

    Disto-not bad but not great.



    For the other end I pass my turn, I use very little and even if I find them quite succeed, I use with too little to have a full review.


    Now the least (just as well as direct plug-ins):

    The software-as a whole is severely lacking in dynamics, with some adjustable ultra basic (type amp + cab only) you do not feel even more accurately the attacks.

    -The sound of bases (preset) its overall bad, except two or three that stand out, the mountain effect that each preset Contains finally turned the sound big mush.

    -The biggest default: The amp heads! a disaster, no change since version 2, settings are still inefficient compared to the amp models on which these models are based. With two other effects in addition to and turn the EQ is not altogether a most anything, so for me as bit of a scratch> lamp preamp> power amp lamp> baffle and nothing more, this software is still disappointing in this respect view.

    The sounds are supposedly modeled light years of the original models, the settings do not help.

    What makes this software is only useful for me to play on anything other than my live set when to play a very low volume. Or just a convenient detune MP3 to play on without having to change their tune all the pieces.



    In conclusion I would say that is nothing worse than a full multi purpose € 200 unless you want to use some of distortion pedals or external simulation of HP (vst). hence the 4 / 10.

    At the same gender, standard amp simulation, Revalver is doing three times better, too bad they do not do that peavey amp on it.
