Shreddage 3 Stratus is the first instrument in Impact Soundworks' Shreddage 3 series of virtual electric guitar and bass sample libraries for Kontakt Player. Built from scratch using 6 years of experience & user feedback since the release of Shreddage 2, the library features a deeply-sampled six string electric guitar with three pickups and a classic American sound. It is available now for the list price of $149.

Shreddage 3 Stratus includes a new interface, mixer, and performance engine taking advantage of all the tools available in Kontakt 5.7. Compared to the Shreddage 2 series of instruments, Shreddage 3 is capable of a far greater variety of tones and playing styles.

Shreddage 3 Engine Core Features:

  • Vastly improved realism for fretting, string selection and voicing.
  • 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.
  • Extensive control over all parameters of the virtual guitarist.
  • New fully-customizable Strumming mode.
  • Random resonance, anti-repetition, DI noise, rakes and release triggering.
  • A plethora of engine options from stroke timing to legato playback.

Console Mixer & FX Rack:

  • Independent mixing, purging, mute/solo and FX chains for all pickups.
  • Instantiate up to 8 FX per pickup, plus master inserts and sends.
  • Add FX in any order, including multiple of the same FX.
  • Save and load FX chains for individual channels or the entire Console.
  • 30 FX modules available in total, including...
  • Numerous pedals, amp models, and over 30 custom cabinet IRs.
  • Multiple EQs, reverbs, distortion FX, spatial FX (rotator, phaser, flanger, etc).
  • FX chain presets are portable between instruments.

Pricing & Availability

Shreddage 3 Stratus is available now for the total price of $149 ($119 for the guitar, $30 for a Shreddage 3 license). The license need only be purchased once to activate future entries into the Shreddage 3 series.
