Cross the borders of guitar sound.

A compact yet advanced guitar plugin. From a delicate, clean tone to the heaviest wall of sound filling the whole mix.

We're advancing a proven formula, focusing on a design that enables you to achieve a wide spectrum of sound in a single plugin.

Control every aspect of the signal from the main view and dial in each parameter with expanding sections.

7 Sections - create your own sound, not a simulation.

Input - a gate, a gain knob, and a high-pass filter.

Preamp - 4 different models of drive, a big range and 4 additional switches dynamically changing the character of the preamp.

Tone stack - 4-band equalizer dynamically changing according to the chosen preamplifier with adjustable frequency, Q and gain as well as customizable filter types and 3-preset tone matching.

FX - a double section divided into modulation (chorus/phaser etc.) and time (reverbs, delays, echoes) subsections.

Power Amp - Resonance and Presence knobs for adding character as well as a Hot knob for saturating the signal even further.

IR - load up to 4 impulse response files at once and mix them in real time until you find the perfect balance for your tone.

Output - A maximizer, a mix knob and a fader.


Aurora IRs - A built-in stock pack of custom impulse responses prepared especially for Rhino.

The Rhino Knob - a set of co-operating functions enclosed within a single parameter - Rhino. It adds character, pushes the tone through - it fits your sound right into the mix without crushing the dynamics or clogging the spectrum.

Compact UI - designed with the goal of convenience and clarity.

Advanced control - each section can be expanded, unveiling extra options.

Cross-platform presets - exchange presets between Window, macOS, iPad and iPhone.

Dark Mode - light and dark mode and a color theme dynamically changing with the chosen preamp.

4k UI - fully scalable UI, just as readable on a 4k TV as on a smartphone. Designed with simple, intuitive control in mind.

iLok account and iLok License Manager installation required. iLok dongle is not required.

This is a truly unique guitar amp plugin. It doesn't try to simulate 'guitar amp X' but rather gives you all the elements that make up an amp chain (input, preamps, EQ, IRs and effects) and lets you play with them on a single canvas. You're approaching your guitar tone as a sound designer rather than a guitar player, which yields some very different results. Plus literally everything is right there on one page. You can even cascade and blend several preamps and there's a (hidden) sub-octave feature if you drag the Rhino logo in the center.

Then for all the playfulness, it has some really deep pro features like tone matching and a smooth quad-IR morpher. Even the noise gate has deep settings that let you get some awesome glitchy torn notes.

Rhino really strikes me as possibly the most creative take on using amp simulation in a more 'out of the box' way. You end up sounding like nothing else because you approach it like nothing else. This is a must-have if you're into modern guitar sounds or just a tone explorer.
