I see under the Linnstrument's recommended software page "Native Instruments: Kontakt, Reaktor." What about the free versions of these, namely Reaktor 6 Player and Kontakt 5 Player (not to mention Guitar Rig 5 Player)? Are these MPE compatible?

As always, thanks!

If a Reaktor ensemble is MPE capaple, it should work. There are not too many, I just adapted Micro Prism, see my other post. Try it, get Micro Prism and Reaktor player, load the Micro MPE Prism and report back... I am curios as well, but you can test it...; - )

Thanks TJ! I have not yet purchased my linnstrument. I will any day now. I'm just trying to figure out what software I'm going to roll with once I buy the linnstrument.

I will check out micro prism with the linnstrument once I get it.

I’m not sure you understand. Guitar Rig is an audio processor like a guitar effects pedal or compressor, but is not a sound source like a sample library or synthesizer. So because it is an audio processor, it can process any audio— guitar, keyboard, sax, screaming chickens, etc.— and is therefore not limited to guitar.

There's the name of my next band taken care of: John the Savage & The Screaming Chickens...

I like that. Thanks, Roger (wink).

Cheers!

I see. So could you take the output from a midi-sound generator (controlled by the linnstrument or otherwise) and pipe it into guitar rig? That might be fun to try sometime.

Audio is audio. An audio processor will process any audio you give it, be it guitar, piano, a sneeze or a recording of birds chirping. It doesn't know the difference. It simply processes audio.

To help illustrate this, you've probably heard of a common audio processor called a wah wah pedal, correct? Though it is intended for guitar, if you sent an electric piano to its input, I think you understand that it would not be able to recognize that it is an electric piano and somehow block the signal because it's not a guitar, correct?

Hmm...

"Sneezy John & The Chirping Birds"?

Roger, these ideas are getting worse. What else do you got (smirk)?

Cheers!

The question then becomes how do I get the audio from my daw into guitar rig? I may ask that over on the native instrument forums.

Course I also have an old fashioned guitar rig: a tube amp and a preamp/effects processor:

Sometime I'll have to pipe the audio from my pc into that and play around with it. That would also be fun. :)

A lot of musicians do that, the required connection is called "cable". There are even specialised vendors for those cables. Biggest problem, even if they carry digital signals (most don't), you could step on them and break your bones. And those guitar rigs could also damage your ears, not to speak about ruining the relations to your neighbors... Be careful...

It’s a plug-in so you just add it to a track of bus in your DAW like any other plug-in effect. :)
