At the heart of GUITAR RIG SESSION is the new GUITAR RIG 3 XE software, which offers a selection of five true-to-life tube amplifier models and 12 cabinet types, as well as 21 stomp boxes and effect units. All components can be freely combined in the virtual GUITAR RIG rack, allowing musicians to easily create sounds ranging from authentic signature tones to totally
unique sonic flavors. A library with over 150 instantly playable tones from different musical eras and genres is included, together with several helpful tools including dual tape-decks, metronome, tuner, and a dedicated LiveView.
The crucial link between the instrument and the computer is established with the included SESSION I/O, a new USB 2.0 stereo audio interface specifically designed for guitarists. Two high-quality instrument preamps and studio-grade 24bit/192kHz Cirrus Logic audio converters enable pristine audio quality, while low-latency drivers provide excellent feel and responsiveness under all conditions. With an additional microphone input and headphone output, the compact and rugged SESSION I/O offers everything necessary to turn a Windows or Macintosh computer into a full guitar or bass setup.
GUITAR RIG SESSION also includes the powerful 64-track music sequencer Cubase 4 LE, as well as the KORE PLAYER software instrument combined with the versatile POP DRUMS acoustic drum library providing a complete creative arsenal to record and produce music on any computer.
GUITAR RIG SESSION will be available in June 2008 for a suggested retail price of USD 249 / EUR 229.
