Absynth 5Absynth 5
Absynth 5 marks a new generation of the semi-modular software synthesizer that is renowned for its unique evolving sounds and textures.

With Guitar Rig 4 Pro, Native Instruments says it "raises the bar on sonic authenticity with new speaker emulation technology, and further expands on nearly all aspects that set Guitar Rig apart as the most capable digital guitar solution". The advanced speaker emulation is also the basis for the versatile new "Control Room" module, which allows users to freely mix and match up to eight phase-aligned studio microphones for each cabinet, providing an unlimited range of high-end studio recording tones.

Taking the performance and versatility of Kontakt for music production, live performance and sound design even further, the fourth generation adds powerful "Authentic Expression Technology," unique sample compression, an extended sound library complete with a convenient new database system, and much more.
