Shreddage 2 IBZ Description:
Shreddage 2 IBZ was conceived after we received countless requests to sample different guitars in the Shreddage engine. We heard you loud and clear, but we’ve gone a step further – not only is IBZ an entirely new instrument in terms of the guitar and samples, but the engine has been rebuilt from the ground up as well!
First, the guitar: a Japanese classic that is perhaps the most popular hard rock & metal axe ever created. It has a bright, biting and aggressive tone emphasizing the pick and attack of each note, compared with the much darker sound of Shreddage II. All crucial articulations were sampled, from sustains, power chords, mutes (up to 6 layers) and tremolo, to pinch & normal harmonics, slides, scrapes, hammer-on/pull-off and more. As with Shreddage II, everything has lots of variations, down/upstroke samples, and recordings of the same note across multiple strings for maximum realism.
You can read more about the engine & interface further down on this page, but in short, it takes the best elements of Shreddage II and expands on them. For example, the instrument can be even more deeply customized to your liking, and the fretboard behavior is more realistic than ever. There’s also an all-new custom FX stack with an amp and cab built right in.
We know Shreddage 2 IBZ will be a powerful tool in your arsenal. Combined with Shreddage II, Drums, and Bass, no face will go un-melted.
