GUITAR RIG 5 Player Features

Amp And Cabinet

Jump Amp with Matched Cabinet

The sound of the Jump is a well-behaved classic choice, offering the smooth, singing lead sound that characterizes those much-loved British amps. Its Matched Cabinet perfectly complements the amp, completing this essential, ready-to-rock duo.




This warm, smooth-sounding overdrive is perfect for rhythm guitar and silky, clear-cut leads.




This delay-based unit can create chorusing, flanging, and pitch modulation effects, depending on the Mode switch.


Reverbs And Delays

Studio Reverb

The Studio Reverb provides a realistic emulation of halls and rooms.

Delay Man

The Delay Man is an extremely warm and flexible delay unit with a built-in chorus and vibrato.

Twin Delay 

The Twin Delay combines two parallel delay modules to provide advanced stereo effects. Each of the delayed signal chains is assigned to one of the stereo channels and features a full set of controls.


Equalizers And Filters

EQ Parametric

A parametric equalizer is a highly sophisticated form of tone control, as it allows boosting or attenuating a continuously adjustable range of frequencies with a variable bandwidth from broad to sharp.

EQ Shelving

A shelving equalizer combines a hi-pass and a low-pass filter to boost or attenuate the frequency ranges above and below their frequency limits, while the midrange frequencies remain untouched.


The Pro-Filter is based on a filter included in Native Instruments’ popular software synthesizer Pro-53.




A limiter works like a compressor with an infinitely high compression ratio and an infinitely short attack time.

Volume Pedal 

This simple volume control can attenuate or boost the level at any point in the signal chain.

Tube Compressor

A compressor evens out dynamic contrasts by attenuating signals above a threshold.

Noise Gate

A noise gate helps remove noise and hiss, but can also be used as a special effect.

Noise Reduction

The Noise Reduction component is similar to the Noise Gate but has a softer effect.dynamics



The term LFO (Low-Frequency Oscillator) refers to a periodic waveform at a subsonic rate. As a Modifier, this is useful to create constantly changing parameter values. Create tremolo effects, synced rhythmic filter sweeps or swelling distortion.


The envelope generates a very flexible control signal, whose shape you can edit accurately using a graphical editor.

Step Sequencer

The Step Sequencer generates up to 16 sequential control signals, which can have rhythmic values of quarter notes to 1/32nd notes.

Analog Sequencer 

The Analog Sequencer works much like the Step Sequencer, as it generates 16 sequential control signals, which can have rhythmic values of quarter notes to 1/32nd notes. But with the Analog Sequencer, you can change the value of each control signal to create a complex rhythmic control signal.

Input Level Modifier

The Input Level Modifier generates a control signal based on the input level of the rack.




This component splits the signal into two parallel paths, which is especially useful for stereo effects and to mix the sound of two independent effect chains.

Crossover Mix

This component allows for parallel effects similar to the Split but uses a variable threshold frequency to separate the higher from the lower parts of the signal.


This is a utility for creating custom multi-effects. Assemble your processing chain, then assign the eight macro-knobs to the key controls on any of the effects in the chain. You can even assign a knob to several controls at once.



Several effects have been given a sidechain input. This essential enhancement provides much more than the characteristic ducking/pumping sound, allowing a wide range of creative techniques. See the comparison chart for a full list of effects with sidechain input.


GUITAR RIG 5 Player Benefits

Professional-looking interface for a guitar tuning app

Among the many programs dedicated to these purposes, Guitar Rig 5 Player aims to offer the most convenient choice for most needs of musicians. Having an interface mostly addressed to experienced users, this software app gives quick access to a variety of tools and effects.

Use recordings tools and an intuitive approach to build complex effects

With Guitar Rig 5 Player you can create tones for bass or guitars, not to mention more complex chains of effects. Cabinets and amplifiers with dedicated microphones, as well as modular components that can be combined to obtain the perfect sound are available inside this utility, among many others.

The effect configurations can be customized and, thanks to a preset browser that is tag-based, you can easily get to the desired components. Building the effect chains is also easier than expected because Guitar Rig 5 Player allows you to simply drop the pieces that make up the whole puzzle.

A wide range of useful guitar tools

There are some built-in tools that can help you in many situations. For instance,  the program includes a metronome with various settings for audio synchronization, in addition to a tuner and preset volume with “dry” and “wet” options. Plus, the two tape-decks bundled in Guitar Rig 5 Player Download are practical when it comes to playback and sound recording.

What’s New:

  • New demo mode now works for individual components and without a restart.
  • Added M/S Split component for individual shaping of mid and side signal.
  • Added Favorite Tab for quick access to favorite components from the browser.
  • Please refer to the Manual Addendum for more detailed information.
  • Renamed “Sounds” to “Presets” coherently throughout the user interface
  • ‘Options’ and ‘Preferences’ menu entries streamlined.
  • Fixed GR5-287: Tweedman, Lead800 & Plex presence knob fixed.
  • This also affects Bass Pro when switching to/from HQ mode.
  • Fixed GR5-280: 8000-11000 Samples Silence when bouncing from 0:00:00
  • Lots of other fixes
