About

Shreddage 3 Stratus is the first chapter in a new universe of Impact Soundworks guitar and bass instruments. In creating this sample library, we’ve drawn from nearly a decade of experience and customer feedback on our previous guitars. We created a new engine – Shreddage 3 (or S3, for short) – entirely from scratch, incorporating the latest Kontakt technology and tools available in version 5.7.

Our new fretting and voicing algorithms give you more realistic performances and playback than ever, emulating how a real guitarist would play a part. Changing these is as simple as selecting from a menu or pressing a keyswitch. A much-requested Strumming engine has been added, great for both slow and fast rhythm parts alike. And with our new modular mixer Console, you now have over 30 effects at your fingertips, from EQs to pedals, compressors, amps, cabinets, modulators, and more.

To showcase all these incredible features, what better guitar to sample than a classic American tone used in countless rock, blues, metal, pop, soul, and funk tracks? Stratus includes three unique pickup positions with custom blending along with all the key articulations you’ve come to expect from the Shreddage series sampled in exquisite detail.

Welcome to the next generation of virtual guitar instruments!


Console: Modular FX Rack and Mixer

Console is our new mixer, modular effects rack, and pedal board, designed to give you full control over your virtual guitar tone. Unlike our previous FX racks, which were limited to a small amount of preset modules, Console gives you 30 effects modules to choose from!

These include multiple EQs (digital and analog-style), compressors, spatial FX, modulation FX, amps, distortion pedals, reverbs, and a selection of over 30 custom cabinet IRs recorded just for Shreddage 3! These cabs cover all the most important sounds you would want, with both dynamic & condenser mics in multiple positions plus a ribbon mic for certain models.

Using Console, you can easily save and load FX chains or presets between projects or even different Shreddage 3 products. It also allows you to mix and blend between guitar pickups, with custom inserts on each if you’d like.

Total Articulation Control Technology (TACT) 2.0

Shreddage 3 Stratus includes an updated version of TACT, allowing you to customize how all articulations are mapped and triggered! Everyone has their own preferences for how to perform or write for virtual guitar, and with TACT you can create the perfect setup for your DAW.

“Impact Soundworks have blown the lid off my DAW with Shreddage 3. This is the electric guitar library I have long been looking for. Whether you want a rocking rhythm guitarist, a wailing, screaming guitar soloist, or simply a tool for writing your own rhythm and solo guitar parts, Shreddage 3 fits the bill. You can easily write a full rock track with Shreddage 3 that sounds authentic and believable. It’s hard to ask for much more than that.”

Shreddage 3 Series – Sample Library Review
 

“For either lively rhythm performances or expressive solos, Shreddage 3 Stratus impressively captures the versatile and characteristic sound of the Fender Stratocaster. This instrument is excellent for a variety of genres such as rock, metal, funk, or soul. Though it already sounds good with the integrated effects, it becomes really authentic with a high-quality external amp sim. The appealing interface makes this powerful Kontakt instrument comfortable and intuitive to use.”
