Four new amplifier models, including a full bass setup Based on NI's Dynamic Tube Response technology, the second version of Guitar Rig adds emulations of four sought-after amp classics, bringing the total number of included amp models up to eight. The new Marshall JCM 800 emulation delivers the powerful hi-gain tone that defined the sound of countless punk and metal bands, while the Fender Bassman model adds a highly characteristic vintage flavor for blues and classic rock. Also part of the new amp arsenal is an emulation based on the Roland Jazz Chorus, beloved for its pristine clean sounds by jazz and pop guitarists.
Guitar Rig 2 also adds a full setup of bass gear, centered around an emulation of an Ampeg SVT bass head with its signature bottom-end richness and sonic precision. A selection of six bass cabinets ranging from 1x15 to 8x10 sizes as well as four additional microphone models optimized for bass recording allow Guitar Rig 2 to turn into a full-featured four-string studio whenever the need arises.
More classic distortion and effect modules Guitar Rig 2 brings the number of included stomp box emulations and effect units up to 36. Three new distortions pedals modeled after popular real-world units offer additional crunch, overdrive and hi-gain flavors, while seven new effect modules add further options to shape the tone.New additions include a stomp compressor, a classic Autofilter model, and a true-to-life emulation of the Dunlop Cry Baby Wah pedal. One of the most creative additions to the arsenal is the new Loop Machine, a powerful and highly intuitive real-time loop recording delay that allows musicians to record and overdub up to 99 layers of audio on the fly.
Powerful modulation features Guitar Rig 2 opens up new possibilities for creative guitar sound design with the addition of a powerful suite of modulators consisting of an envelope follower, a multi-breakpoint-envelope, an LFO and two different step sequencers. Modulators can be inserted into the virtual rack at any location, in any order and quantity, and can be assigned to nearly any parameter of the setup. This offers an unparalleled amount of flexibility for unique and innovative guitar tones, from extremely dynamic distortion sounds to complex, evolving soundscapes.
The modulation system in Guitar Rig 2 has also been expanded to a full featured modulation matrix, allowing for total freedom in assigning controller sources and targets among each other without compromising the ease of use of Guitar Rig's unique parameter control concept.
