Shreddage 2 – Computer Music

“Emulating guitar sounds is problematic – or it was until Impact Soundworks launched Shreddage. Version 2 for Kompact 5 is rammed full of chords and articulations to get the most authentic sound possible […] The quality of the samples here is really good. Although aimed at Rock and Metal, it lends itself to any genre. For those more accustomed to keys than strings, it is ideal with its impressive soundset and amount of control.”

Peak Rider – Computer Music

“A fresh take on sidechain-triggered dynamics processing, Peak Rider is a solid tool for mixing and creative purposes. […] Peak Rider is wonderfully transparent- sounding and easy to use, and we’re impressed by not only its nifty dynamics matching functionality, but also its strengths as a general compressor/expander and transient shaper.”

Juggernaut – Computer Music

“Sound-wise, Juggernaut is hard-hitting, high-impact and unapologetically ‘electronic’ […] what it has sounds very good, and the editable parameters and effects allow decent customization.”

Archtop – Computer Music

“The big sound of the hollowbody electric is at its best taking centre stage. Archtop captures this perfectly and is the sort of sampled guitar you could happily ‘feature’ in a track rather than hide in the mix. It’s beautifully presented, and its pristine DI sound serves as a fantastic foundation for a huge range of tones… A fabulous-sounding guitar captured to near-perfection with articulations and noises for supreme realism of performance.”

Bravura Scoring Brass – Blogcritics Magazine

“I really liked working with Bravura. You have a lot of flexibility over what you are creating… Even better are the sounds that you are able to create. By being able to control so many variables, you can tweak the sounds in just about any way possible. Also, the crispness of the sound is superb… The Chordmaker and Orchestrator also make this package very unique and give it even more flexibility.

“[…] I have worked with a number of other brass packages and Bravura really scores high on my list of favorites. For that reason I highly recommend it.”

Shreddage Bass 2 – Bedroom Producers Blog

“The sound is very clean and clear, but with a warm low end even at the highest velocities. Being a bassist and having lots of recordings of myself laying around on my hard drive, I did some comparisons and this bass has a much nicer low end than my recordings. Only the C string is more about bright zing than warmth (as high C strings on 6-string basses normally are).

[…] A very nice, very versatile bass guitar library. As long as you’re not looking for accurate vintage sounds, Shreddage Bass 2 can do just about everything you might need a virtual bass guitar for.”

Shreddage 2 IBZ – Bedroom Producers Blog

“The first word Impact Soundworks use when listing the key features on their page is “brutal”, but I’d say “versatile” is the best word to describe Shreddage 2 IBZ. Though metal was the goal and its not a guitar for every application, Shreddage 2 IBZ is a great and very detailed library suitable for any music where being heavy-handed and aggressive is better than being smooth.”

Testimonial – Tom Salta (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Killer Instinct, Wolfenstein: Youngblood)

“Shreddage is one of the most flexible and playable virtual electric guitar instruments I’ve ever used. The fact that the sounds were recorded clean without any distortion breaks the mold from most other guitar libraries and allows me to dial in the exact sound I want.”
