Impact Soundworks has released our finest free instrument yet based on our wildly popular Shreddage 3 engine, Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE!

This Kontakt instrument has all the core sounds of the full library and almost all of the script features with no crippling limitations. It is, in our humble opinion, the finest free virtual guitar ever released.

KEY FEATURES
  • 12 frets and 6 strings sampled: 3 total playable octaves
  • Up to 24 samples per note (up to 3x dynamics, 4x RR, up/down strokes!)
  • 24-bit high fidelity recordings
  • Neck pickup position
  • Sustains, palm mutes, chokes, release noises
  • Multiple fretting/string selection algorithms for different playing styles
  • STRUM engine for customizable strummed/rhythm parts and harmonies
  • New SHRED window/offset for more realistic fast parts
  • POLY-INPUT lookahead window for better chord voicings
  • CONSOLE: Flexible FX rack and mixer with 30+ modules to choose from and dozens of custom IRs
  • TACT 2.0: Map each articulation any way you like with new per-articulation tweaks!

Thank you! This is a terrific way of providing a meaningful demo in the Kontakt context and I suspect will pay dividends. I've got pretty much all the Orange Tree guitars and several Ample Sound guitars (and am very happy with all of them), among other guitar odds and ends, so have resisted the lure of trying out the Shreddage line as well. I mean, how many virtual guitars do I need? But now I'll certainly be downloading this free gift, and if (and I suspect when) I like it, I fear a purchase very well may not be too far off after that. :help:

right... I was looking at this but not avidly. I like the Console UI, handy.

Passing of the free crown, heh. I like that as a way to stake your claim. Well, I can't argue with that as far as guitars go - it definitely is. I'll have to actually check this out before saying it's better than Piano In 162 and SM Drums, but hey, it might well be.
