Guitar Rig is ideal for musicians working on a budget that need a solid all-in-one guitar management application.
Guitar Rig allows you to connect your guitar to your computer so that you can amplify and manage your guitar sound as if you were in a professional studio . The soundcard routes the signal to your speakers and Guitar Rig simulates a series of classic amps, cabinets, mics and effects via a drag and drop interface.
Of course, the effect is not as good as using a professional studio but most users report that reproduction is very good for a simple computer application. The interface of Guitar Rig is extremely well laid out and even for those new to amps and guitar effects, it doesn't take long to navigate your way around. If you intend to use Guitar Rig for live performances, a convenient Live View displays the most essential readouts and level monitors to keep your eye on.
It's not exactly a professional music studio but Guitar Rig is an impressive effort.
