The next generation of virtual guitar instruments for KONTAKT PLAYER is here! More realistic and versatile than ever before, featuring an American classic sound, three pickups, tons of articulations and the new CONSOLE mixer and modular FX rack!

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 with 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.

    • Well, I tried different versions of Kontakt. Looks like some cracked Kontakt versions doesn't read properly these files.

      Works in Kontakt 5.8.0 Portable P2P

      Doesn't work with:
      •Native Instruments Kontakt 5 v5.6.5 R2R
      •Native Instruments Kontakt 6 v6.0.3 SYMLiNK
      •Native Instruments Kontakt 6 v6.0.4 SYMLiNK
      •Native Instruments Kontakt 6 v6.1.0 P2P

      I remember Team R2R said in a past Cracked Kontakt release:

      CRACKED Kontakt accept library too much and sometime accept broken
      library, because some of the check routine are bypassed. There are no
      guarantee that broken library can be used in the upcoming version of
      the Kontakt. There are too many broken, repacked or resaved libraries
      in the audio warez scene around there. R2R believe there will be less
      damaged releases or uploads by switching to KEYGEN release.

    • It works on Kontakt Portable 6.1.1. Just don't copy the update files. I tried it with the original version (without the updates 1 and 2) and it loaded fine.

      I will keep testing.

      Edit: The file "Shreddage3.Stratus.KONTAKT.UPDATE.2" is the one that is making the library not to load. This folder contains two sample files that seems to be the culprit.
