Great sounding demo...even through my iPad speakers.
One question about the manual:
I can't really imagine how DT is done in S2.
So there are basically 2 guitar instances per start...is this one for Rhythm and the other for Lead Guitar I guess?
Now when I press DT on Guitar 1 what exactly happens?
A new instance is created and automatically send to one of the individual outputs of Kontakt? To which one?
Some clarity would be nice.
It looks like Shreddage 2 will have one patch for both rhythm and leads, so it's all about the way you play/sequence it.
For double tracking, you'll have to load the patch twice and set one to Guitar 1, the other to Guitar 2, and set them to separate Kontakt outputs. Setting one to Guitar 2 changes the order of the RR samples so they won't both be playing the same thing at the same time (if Guitar 1 is playing samples 1-2-3-4, Guitar 2 will be playing something like 3-4-5-6 instead).
Think of it this way. Each instance of the Shreddage II patch is just another guitar track. You can use it for whatever you want; rhythm, lead, arpeggios, whatever. "DT Guitar 1" vs. "DT Guitar 2" chooses a separate randomized RR sequence, as J-Rokujuushi pointed out, so you're getting a different set of recordings.
Thus if you wanted to have one double-tracked lead part, and one double-tracked rhythm part, you would have 4x instances total. Though in many rock songs, only one lead track is used as opposed to double-tracking that as well.
Existing owners of Shreddage will be able to get Shreddage II for a price of $99, permanently. The normal intro price (2 week) will be $119 and list price will be $139.
No promises on an additional discount for Shreddage Bass owners... would be a little trickier to set up on the backend, plus remember, this being a Kontakt Player library, we have a bit more overhead this time around. But I will see what I can do. If not for this, then you'll definitely get a discount on future bass libraries.
