One of these days maybe MacUpdate will have a little notification button right next to the version number to allow us to EASILY let them know when their listings need to be updated. You know, make it quick and simple to have others help them stay current. Until then, I'll just say that Guitar Rig has been at version 5 for a long time now and it's up to 5.1.x now as well.

I panned this software last year (see below), but it is really much better now. The guitar tones and effects have always been great, the problems were always tons of bugs, nonworking features, and insanely intrusive and lame product registration mechanism. The product registration part still sucks; it is some godawful Flash-based app or something, and it is horribly designed and still atrociously bad. But many many bugs are now fixed or gone in version 3.x, and the experience is much better. The guitar part is the same (very good) and the general software quality has improved a lot (it's now average, no longer terrible).

My experience is different from that of the previous reviewers. I have not had any problems with the software, the registration method, or with recording. I'm a fan of amp/effect emulation, and have used both analog and digital emulators. Sound-wise it is really good, although these are not the best emulations I've heard. I'm definitely not selling my amps. On a negative note, I was a bit surprised by the jump from 2.3 to 3.0, and the respective upgrade price. This is not the same experience I had with Battery, B4, and Pro-53, for which I received numerous updates and even upgrades free of charge. I have not used Waves GTR, but maybe I'll check that one instead of upgrading. By the way, this sort of technology has been around for maybe a decade. The first emulator of this type that I used was Amp Farm. Other digital emulation alternatives include Roland's VG equipment and H&K zenTera amps. The latter are the best I've ever heard. I highly recommend Orren Merton's "Guitar Rig 2 Power!: The Comprehensive Guide"
