Page 49: The Rig KontrolRIG 5. Nine freely assignable switches and an expression pedal are at your disposal right after connecting it. Note that you can use the Rig Kontrol to control GUITAR RIG 5, even if you do not use it as your audio interface. For detailed information about the hardware and how to use the integrated audio interface, refer to the Hardware Reference.
Page 50: Assigning Functions To The Rig KontrolIf you operate a switch or the pedal of the (physical) RIG KONTROL, both the Virtual Rig Kontrol and the assigned function will react to it.

Page 54: Using Guitar Rig In A HostSetting Up a Guitar or Bass Track To setup a track to be processed by GUITAR RIG 5, just create an audio track and insert GUITAR RIG 5 as an effect. The audio track will hold the bare, unprocessed signal and your sound will be routed through GUITAR RIG before reaching the output stage of your DAW.
Page 55: Synchronization(because it works both with audio and MIDI), you should use it as a signal process- ing / effects insert. 7.1.4 Synchronization If you want GUITAR RIG 5 to be in time with your host, remember to turn on Ext mode in the Metronome (see section ↑5.4, Metronome and Synchronization). This will turn off the speed setting of GUITAR RIG and use the host’s tempo as a master.

Page 62: Linking External Midi Controllers To The Virtual Rig Kontrol8.1.3 Linking External MIDI Controllers to the Virtual Rig Kontrol The Virtual Rig Kontrol is a perfectly integrated component of GUITAR RIG 5, sporting pre-assigned functions for many presets and a convenient display for all its assignments, especially in Live view. If your external MIDI controller features a comparable set of con- trols, it can make sense to map it to the Virtual Rig Kontrol and then use the latter for assigning functions instead.
