Shreddage Sampled

Impact Soundworks have released a new collection of electric guitar samples, Shreddage: Electric Rhythm Guitar. Here's what they have to say about it...
The library marks a fourth entry into the Impact Soundworks catalog, following such critically-acclaimed titles as "Impact: Steel" and "Sitar Nation".
Impact Soundworks, a joint venture between composers Andrew Aversa and Wilbert Roget, II, is dedicated to designing innovative and unique sample libraries for composers looking for fresh, highly expressive sounds outside the norm.
"Shreddage" is a sample library exclusively designed for rock and metal rhythm guitar playing. Featuring entirely multisampled sounds developed over the course of two full years, the library is capable of reproducing almost any rock riff with stunning realism and accuracy.
"We created Shreddage because we were tired of using virtual guitar instruments that were either amped, loops, or simply unrealistic. They didn't fool anyone," said Andrew Aversa, lead designer of the product. "People used to say that it was impossible to record realistic metal guitar samples without loops. I'm confident that with this library, we've proven them wrong."
The library was designed, produced, and edited by Aversa, an award-winning composer and producer who co-developed the highly-lauded "Sitar Nation" collection as well as "Groove Bias." Veteran metal guitarist Juan Medrano performed all of the sounds in the library and, with progressive rock keyboardist Matt Guillory, assisted in its design.
"Shreddage" was recorded direct at 24/44.1, allowing the user to customize their own amp tone; to get them started, a library of virtual amp presets and impulses are included. The patches, programmed in Kontakt format (version 2+ required), allow for tone and envelope control as well as timing variation, easy 'thrash' mode, and true, stereo double-tracked output.
The library includes all crucial articulations for rhythm playing, such as full, half and fast palm mutes, powerchord mutes, open sustains, powerchords, full chokes with multiple neck positions, slides, pinch squeals, pick scrapes, finger, string and fret release noises, and up to eight round robins (8x RR) per technique.
Pricing and Availability:
"Shreddage" is available for immediate download for $49, worldwide. More information:
