Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "True Love for guitar geeks, old-school pros still skeptical."
Sound: The best, most realistic, natural feeling, responsive, nuanced, detailed and believable modeled sounds to date, similar to the quality of the original GP 100. Far better than PODs or the new Roland trash. Feature: Awesome feature set, assignable foot-switches, multiple effects, filters, loops etc. plus a useful collection of presets. Ease of Use: Are far as software-driven stuff goes, the easiest I have seen. Quality: pedal is sturdy... would prefer balanced outs and fire-wire, but it works and is relatively noise-free. Hardware seems reliable, but there is never any guarantee with software on any computer. Analog is still the most reliable for pros. Value: For the effects and models, a solid ten. But remember, this software is only as good as your knowledge, skill, and your playback equipment. It is software, so you can't return it. The pedal is useless without the software. You will need a fast, strong computer (MAC) and plenty of memory to utilize this thing's potential. Manufacturer Support: Slow, incomplete, and a snotty attitude. The Wow Factor: If you have a good stereo PA system or great studio monitors, and you are not afraid of computers, this is an awesome package. If you want to use it live through regular guitar amps, are "old school" or just hate digital stuff, then this isn't for you. Overall: For bedroom guitar geeks, this is the bombe. Performing professional guitarists (like me) are still wary of software-driven anything. The feature list is staggering. The interface is clean and easy. But without a good computer and technological savvy, this could be a nightmare.

NI Guitar Rig 5 Kontrol Customer Review
Sound: With the correct computer setup [consider a gaming type computer] this product works flawlessly. Sound can be run in high quality with 2ms latency on my current rig. Many different styles of sounds can be created in the rigs, from clean bluesy, to extreme metal, this will do it. Easy to install, hook up and working within 5 minutes after installing and updating the software. Tip: After the first initial connection of the Kontrol unit, wait for windows to install the driver before launching the standalone unit. Also before initially starting the standalone, go to the asio kontrol panel and set your latency, changing latencies within the standalone seems to make it crashout. My current computer for example: XP PRO SP3 32Bit AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SAPPHIRE Radeon X1950XT 256MB Seagate Barracuda 7200 250GB 7200 RPM SATAII Feature: The pedal is mostly made of aluminum but seems durable, of course only time will tell. Only wish the USB cable was longer, but that also can cause issues over 6 feet. Plenty of reading in the box, which is a rarity it seems these days with software. Ease of Use: This is where most people will fail. If you don't understand first off what latency is, google will help. The default presets [there are a lot] sound good as they are, but I personally like a distinct sound with my guitar. Building rigs from scratch can be a long process but the end product can sound mindblowing. Be prepared to spend the most time working on customizing the rigs to fit into the sound your looking for. Quality: Again, only time will tell how the pedal will perform. Seems solid, maybe they should make a road case for it. Other concern is the USB input on the pedal as far as it wearing out with use. Value: Seriously, so many different sounds and effects, you would have to realistically buy tons of gear to get all the sounds this package has. Manufacturer Support: haven't needed support but the upgrades to the software were readily available after registering the software.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
