Prepare to Shred!

The ultimate virtual electric guitar plugin for rock & metal music has landed on Greenlight! Powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player, SHREDDAGE 2 offers the authentic sound of a drop-tuned, 7-string electric guitar with every crucial playing style and articulation at your fingertips. Perform lead and rhythm guitar parts in real-time with your MIDI keyboard, or write them in your host program (Sonar, Cubase, FL Studio, Pro Tools, etc.) Since SHREDDAGE 2 was recorded 100% clean, you can create any guitar tone using your own virtual amp plugins, the onboard FX, or the included REVALVER HPSE amp sim by Peavey.

  • Stunningly realistic & playable virtual guitar instrument
  • Runs in the free KONTAKT PLAYER plugin by Native Instruments (Mac, PC, all plugin formats)
  • No MIDI controller required
  • Drop-tuned 7-string electric guitar recorded clean
  • Includes ReValver HPse amp sim plugin by PEAVEY
  • Single notes, powerchords, vibrato, pinch harmonics
  • Hammer-on, pull-off, portamento (glissando) slides
  • Neck slides, full chokes, palm mutes, aggressive mutes
  • Real-time fretboard display shows virtual note positions
  • Totally customizable mapping & engine settings

Reviews & Praise

"Emulating guitar sounds (with virtual instruments) is problematic – or it was until Impact Soundworks launched Shreddage." - Computer Music Magazine / MusicRadar

"Shreddage is one of the most flexible & playable virtual guitars I've used. Since the sounds are clean with no distortion, I can dial in the exact sound I want! - Tom Salta, Composer (Halo: CE Anniversary, Crackdown, Prince of Persia, Tom Clancy's HAWX)

"The library has a huge amount of great samples covering every nook and cranny of the electric guitar, and it really is of the highest quality. Once I started to use it, I could tell that they must have put in a gigantic effort into the scripting, sampling, and design…" - Rob Mitchell, SoundBytes Magazine

"There is an impeccable attention to detail and some very good programming behind (Shreddage) that makes it hard to resist. Very convincing and playable! 10/10!" - Tom Shear, Waveformless (* version 1 review)

"Every so often a library will provide good results, the kind that make you crack a grin while playing. There were times when I was stunned at how easy it was to get something highly usable." - Brent Randall, ProRec (* version 1 review)

Perfect library for Stream distro!

Best electric guitar library you can get your -virtual- hands on in my opinion. I personally hardly use Steam but I'd really love to see S2 get more recognition. If selling it here bumps its recognition up, I'm all for it!
