Details

Shreddage 3 Precision was created to be the ultimate, versatile virtual bass. capable of playing in any genre, with all the techniques a real bassist uses. We spent months planning the perfect instrument and recording setup: bassist Tony Dickinson (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) performed all the samples using a high-end, American 5-string p-bass with flatwound strings for a beautiful, detailed sound. An all-analog UA|610 DI was used to further enhance the warmth and fullness of every note.

For core playing techniques, we captured fingered, picked, and slapped playing with lots of dynamics and round-robins. Add to that tapping, pops, hammer-on/pull-off, slides, buzz trills, and harmonics, and the result is a super playable instrument that can handle nearly any riff you throw at it. Whether you’re writing rock, metal, pop, funk, jazz, or blues, Shreddage 3 Precision can fit in any mix.

Of course, this instrument also includes the same great engine features as all Shreddage 3 instruments: a highly-realistic virtual bassist engine (with multiple fretting and performance algorithms), the Console modular FX rack, and TACT 2.0 tab for totally customizable articulation mapping. It’s also fully NKS Compatible for Komplete Kontrol & Maschine users.

Welcome to the next generation of virtual bass instruments!

Shreddage 3 Series – Sample Library Review

“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.”
