Native Instruments announces GUITAR RIG 3 XE

Native Instruments today announced GUITAR RIG 3 XE, a new version of its award-winning GUITAR RIG software that marks the ideal entry into computer-based guitar recording. Offering an essential arsenal of emulated gear at an especially affordable price, GUITAR RIG 3 XE is specifically designed for modern guitarists who want to perform and record with uncompromising audio quality regardless of their budget.

Based on Native Instruments' acclaimed Dynamic Tube Response Technology, GUITAR RIG 3 XE provides the same outstanding tonal authenticity and enormous "tweakability" as GUITAR RIG 3. A versatile selection of five true-to-life tube amplifier models, 12 classic cabinet types and 21 different effect units offers a wide range of sonic possibilities, all accessible through GUITAR RIG's typical "virtual rack". This allows users to freely mix and match the individual components, and create a nearly unlimited range of tones and effect treatments for guitar, bass, vocals or any other kind of real-time or recorded audio material.

Other practical features of GUITAR RIG 3 XE include dual tape decks, metronome, tuner, a special Live View for stage use, and a convenient preset database that comes with more than 150 ready-to-play guitar tones accommodating all kinds of playing styles and musical genres.

GUITAR RIG 3 XE will be available in June 2008 for a suggested retail price of USD 119 / EUR 99.
