Impact Soundworks releases Shreddage 3 Stratus Virtual Electric Guitar for Kontakt Player
Impact Soundworks has released Shreddage 3 Stratus, the first entry into their new series of virtual electric guitar & bass instruments for Kontakt Player. The library features the distinctive sound of an American classic with three pickups, 16 articulations, and a brand new interface and performance engine drawing from 6 years of experience & user feedback.
Shreddage 3 Stratus is available now for MSRP $149 and requires only the free Kontakt Player 5.7+. The instrument, which was recorded 'clean' (DI), includes a wide variety of effects, pedals, amps, and cabinets: external amp sims are not required.
Unlike the developer's previous guitars, which were largely focused on heavy rock and metal music, Shreddage 3 Stratus is intended to offer a diverse range of playing styles thanks to its multiple pickups and expanded playing style algorithms. More realistic lead and rhythm playing is now possible thanks to a rewritten fretboard engine, and a new Strumming Mode feature.
- All-new UI and script rewritten to take full advantage of Kontakt Player 5.7.
- Multiple fretting modes for differing types of playing (lead, poly rhythm, etc.).
- Built-in multitracking and custom pickup blending.
- "Poly Input" mode for even more realistic playback of block chords.
- TACT 2.0 - Map or trigger any articulation through keyswitch, velocity, MIDI CC, etc.
- Console mixer: 30 modular effects, pedals, and amps across 4 channels x 8 inserts.
- Over 30 custom cabinet IRs included in Console, recorded exclusively for S3.
- Save and load FX chains for individual channels or the entire Console.
