Impact Soundworks Releases Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE
Impact Soundworks released today SHREDDAGE 3 STRATUS FREE, a virtual electric guitar instrument for KONTAKT based on the company’s massively-popular Shreddage 3 Stratus library. Just like the full version, Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE features the authentic sound of an American classic guitar with highly detailed samples, realistic performance playback, and a fully-modular mixer, FX rack, and pedal board. It is available now as a free download ($0.00) in KONTAKT format.
Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE offers the majority of the full version’s engine & script features, including one pickup (instead of three), 12 out of 24 frets, and the core sustain, palm mute, choke, and release noise articulations. Otherwise, there are no additional limitations. The FREE edition has the same amount of dynamic levels and round robins, the same performance algorithms, fret and string control, 30+ FX modules, and flexible mapping as the full version.
“We can’t wait to give all KONTAKT users a truly versatile, powerful, and free guitar library for their music,” said library producer Andrew Aversa. “There are many hobbyists, students, and aspiring professionals with limited budgets. Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE is the perfect first step into the Shreddage 3 ecosystem, and it doesn’t sacrifice any sample fidelity or depth.”
Shreddage 3 is a new family of electric guitar and bass sample libraries that succeeds Impact Soundworks’ groundbreaking Shreddage 2 series of virtual guitars. Beginning with Shreddage 3 Stratus, all instruments under this new brand will include the same realistic performance behavior, editing controls, modular mixer and FX rack, and other key features.
Ideal for both lead and rhythm playing, and just like the full version, Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE has multiple algorithms for MIDI playback covering different playing and voicing styles. This allows users to easily change how a riff or phrase sounds with just a single click. Custom chord strumming is also now available, adding the ability to write completely custom parts with any rhythm or chord imaginable.
Future releases in the Shreddage 3 family will include updates of previous Impact Soundworks releases such as Shreddage 2 IBZ and SRP, Archtop, and Shreddage Bass 2, along with newly-sampled guitars like an 8-string perfect for modern metal. Previous customers will also receive discounted upgrades and crossgrades to Shreddage 3 products.
Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE is available now as a free digital download exclusively form Impact Soundworks. Audio and video demos, specifications, and more product information are available at the Impact Soundworks website: www.impactsoundworks.com
