I never hear my electric guitar when I play it through my (recently purchased) Rig Kontrol 2 until I open NI Guitar Rig software - then it starts to amplify the signal. Without the software, it doesn't do anything - the guitar is quiet. Is this normal? Does it mean that Rig Kontrol can't amplify the audio input from the guitar without the software?

?

Where are you expecting to hear it if you don't have the input going to anything? :?

I was thinking that it could strengthen the clean audio from the guitar like, for example, Focusrite Saffire does when you connect the guitar to the instrument input before you open any software amp emulation. Rig Kontrol doesn't do anything like that. When I use Saffire, I can hear the guitar through the speakers. Rig Kontrol doesn't seem to output any audio unless you open Guitar Rig software.

There's no thru put (aka direct monitoring) with RK, if that's what you mean.

Ah, ok, I see - I didn't know how to say this ("direct monitoring").
