Native Instruments on Tuesday released
Guitar Rig 1.2. The new version of the developer’s digital guitar studio adds four new stomp boxes — the fuzz pedals Fuzz Ace and Big Fuzz and the distortion pedals Cat and Demon Distortion — as well as such performance improvements as 20dB increased gain for the Gratifier amp, faster preset switching and more. In addition, 50 presets that utilize the new stomp boxes are included in this update, which is a free download for registered Guitar Rig users. The full version is US$499 and requires Mac OS X v10.2.6.
