Big Fish Audio RiG
Big Fish Audio has released RiG: Urban Workstation.
Big Fish Audio has joined forces with the engineers at Vir2 to create a virtual instrument made for the hip hop and R&B producer.
The RiG interface places all parameters right in front of you. There are 11 tweakable fx on all instruments, including: EZ room, Hi Pass, Lo Pass, Compression, Stereo Modeller, Limiter, Phaser, Flanger, Chrorus, Reverb, and Delay.
RiG includes a custom synth step fx editor allowing combinations of gate effects, arpeggios, sequenced pan effects, attack and decay, and low and hi pass filters.
You will also find a loop playback interface allowing you to access and edit individual slices of the included loops. The parameters you can edit are: Volume, Pitch, Reverse, Attack, Decay, Cutoff, and Resonance.
RiG contains about 1200 patches and 26GB of samples. Aside from multi-sampled instruments, RiG also contains a wide variety of loop-based instruments.
RiG is divided into seventeen main category folders: Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Drum Banks, Drum Loops, Electric Guitar, Ethnic, Horn Section, Keyboards, Orchestral Hits, Organs, Percussion and Harp, Percussion Loops, Piano, Sliced Loops, Strings, Synths and Vocals.
RiG is powered by the Kontakt 4 engine. It is compatible with VST, AudioUnit, and RTAS (Pro Tools 8 & 9) plug-in formats, allowing it to work within major sequencers, in addition to standalone use on both an Intel Mac and PC.
