Native Instruments have announced Guitar Rig 2, with this great looking controller. Explains why IK Multimedia resorted to rough birds to promote their mingin' purple Amplitube controller.

Dunno man, everything looks kinda weak compared to TCs G-system...
The new Guitar rig looks awesome. As far as it not comparing to G-system, I hope he means looks alone.
G-System does not allow for PC based recording, or applying the patches to computer based tracks. G system does not have a looper, much less an unlimited one that allows for 99 layered tracks. For that matter, G-System has an MSRP of $1,900 compared to Guitar Rig's $579 price tag. Also, turning on G-systems "Distortion" setting isn't quite the same as choosing a Pro-Co Rat or TS-9.
would it be too much to ask a company to make a neat stripped down and programble foot controller like that that DOESNT work as a audio interface? I am sick of spaceship armada foot controllers when all i need is one expression pedal and 5-6 assignable cc controllers.
I know Behringer has a hit-or-miss record on audio gear, but their controllers are quite nice. I use one of these as a keyboardist and love it. Yeah, there are two expression pedals, not one -- I'm sure you'll find something to do with the extra. Feels great, fully programmable, works like a charm.
Of course, the idea of the NI kit is integrating the audio software + audio interface + control surface, which will serve other users really well. And comparing it to the G-System is apples to oranges: this is cheaper and integrates with your computer. Play with them both; see which you prefer.
And as you can see on my site, they work really well with violin, too.
