Guitar Rig 5 advice?

Post by fretski »

I'm casing this app for possible use. I had tried to get it running under wine before but that endeavor is on hold for now, I will try again later, maybe. This is about Gr5 (using windows 7) period.

Can I give Gr5 an mp3 of a guitar lead track and have it 'pretty it up'?

I'm trying the Demo and have a horrendous latency issue although the hardware should not be a problem. Asus Crosshair-IV mobo, amd 8-core, 16gb, Asus STX-II (cmi8788) soundcard. Where would I begin tackling this problem?

The overall idea is to see if Gr5 is for me, if it is then buy it and run it under Wine, if that's impossible then run it under w7.

Guitar Rig 5 runs pretty well with wine.

Guitar Rig 5 was one of the vst's I tested for LinVst and I got very good latency results (using a low latency kernel) and low cpu usage on an old dual core laptop with built in sound hardware.

Why you would have latency issues on windows I don't know, because the hardware you list should be very capable.
