The next generation of virtual guitar instruments for KONTAKT / KONTAKT PLAYER! More realistic and versatile than ever before with an American classic sound, three pickups, tons of articulations and a new console mixer and modular FX rack!
Shreddage 3 Stratus is the first chapter in Impact Soundworks’ new universe of guitar and bass instruments. In creating this sample library, we have used almost a decade of experience with our previous guitars and user feedback. We’ve built a new engine – Shreddage 3 (or S3 for short) – completely from the ground up, including the latest Kontakt technology and the tools available for version 5.7.
Our new strumming and voicing algorithms give you more realistic playback than ever, mimicking a real guitarist. All this is changed simply from the menu or by pressing a pushbutton switch. Added Strumming engine, great for both slow and fast rhythm parts. And with our new modular mixing console, you now have over 30 effects from EQs to pedals, compressors, amps, cabinets, modulators and more. See all these
incredible possibilities and decide which guitar is better than the classic American tone used in countless rock and roll, blues, metal, pop, spirit and funk. Stratus includes three unique pickup positions with custom blending along with key articulations from the Shreddage series.
The Console is our new mixer, modular effects rack and pedal board designed to give you complete control over your virtual guitar tone. Unlike our previous FX racks, which were limited to a small number of preset modules, Console gives you 30 effect modules to choose from!
These include multiple EQs (digital and analog), compressors, spatial FX, modulation effects, amps, distortion pedals, reverbs and a selection of over 30 custom IR cabinets recorded exclusively for Shreddage 3! These cabinets cover all the most important sounds you need, with dynamic and condenser mics in multiple positions, plus a ribbon mic for certain models.
Using the console, you can easily save and load FX chains or presets between projects or even different Shreddage 3 products. It also allows you to mix guitar pickups.
To reproduce the project, you will need to install many third-party plugins and tools. You can find the list of required plugins by downloading the project.
