Vir2 Instruments and Big Fish Audio have announced the imminent release of a new Kontakt Player powered Hip Hop sample and loop library: RiG: Urban Workstation, a virtual instrument tailor-made for the hip hop and R&B producer. You don't have to weed through instrument after instrument to find the right sound since each instrument in RiG has been recorded and edited to create instant inspiration for you, the modern producer.
The easy to use RiG interface places all parameters right in front of you allowing you to quickly customize your sound to create that perfect fit for your next hit track. RiG includes a custom synth step fx editor allowing limitless combinations of gate effects, arpeggios, sequenced pan effects, attack and decay, and low and hi pass filters. You will also find a loop playback interface allowing you to access and edit individual slices of the included loops.
RiG contains over 1200 patches and 26GB of samples. Aside from multi-sampled instruments, RiG also contains a wide variety of loop-based instruments.
RiG is divided into seventeen main category folders: Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Drum Banks, Drum Loops, Electric Guitar, Ethnic, Horn Section, Keyboards, Orchestral Hits, Organs, Percussion and Harp, Percussion Loops, Piano, Sliced Loops, Strings, Synths and Vocals.
RiG is powered by the Kontakt 4 engine and is compatible with VST, AudioUnit, and RTAS (Pro Tools 8 & 9) plug-in formats, allowing it to work seamlessly within any major sequencer, in addition to standalone use on both an Intel Mac and Windows PC.
