Native Instruments has just dropped their new Guitar Rig 7 Pro software and it’s got quite a few tonal options. Guitar Rig 7 Pro offers over 100 new rack presets, guitar and bass amp simulators, studio effects, and pedals which we’ll get into below.
For starters, Guitar Rig 7 Pro has four new Intelligent Circuit Modeling (ICM) amps, which are:
- Super Fast 100 – A legendary 100W all-tube amp that defined the sound of modern rock with its shiny cleans, creamy leads, and high-gain sounds.
- Reverb Delight – A timeless classic from the mid-60s, played on countless hits, and regarded as one of the most essential workhorse guitar amps ever made.
- AC Box XV – Modeled after a legendary 60s tube amp renowned for its clean tone and gritty breakup, AC Box XV features a meticulously designed “point-to-point” hand-wired chassis produced in the UK.
- Bass Rage – An iconic all-tube bass amp that delivers 300 watts of classic bass tone, designed for players who are looking for an authentic, vintage tube sound.
Then there’s some new effects like the warbly lo-fi Tape Wobble, Noise Machine for all your cassette and VHS tape sound needs, a classic Vintage Vibrato; and Kolor which uses black-box models of popular hardware distortion circuits, including two iZotope Trash components, for some added character.
Of course there’s a bunch of distortion too, namely a Boss HM-2 clone dubbed the Chainsaw., as well as a sidebar interface to best lay out your rig.
