The Rig Kontrol 3 from Native Instruments is a foot controller that can be used to control nearly all of the GUITAR RIG 3 software sound parameters. Additionally, it features a 24-bit/192kHz USB 2.0 stereo audio interface and preamps that allows convenient connection of a bass, guitar or any other instrument with a computer, without the need for additional hardware.
The two inputs allow the use of two guitars or basses (or one of each) simultaneously, with monitoring available via a dedicated headphone socket. For more real-time access to other parameters, additional controllers and pedals may be connected to two dedicated inputs on the controller, as well as to the MIDI interface section.
Note: This item is for users that already possess GUITAR RIG software and wish to have hardware control of the software's parameters.
