Impact Soundworks, LLC released today “Shreddage
X: Electric Guitar Samples Reloaded,” the much-anticipated expansion
pack to their blockbuster “Shreddage” electric guitar sample library.
This collection marks the 7th entry into the Impact Soundworks
instrument catalog, used by thousands of composers worldwide.

“Shreddage X” upgrades and expands the content of the original
library, adding new articulations (per-note vibrato, harmonics,
tremolo picking and aggressive sustains), new dropped tuning (down to
Ab), true portamento slides and legato for both single notes and
powerchords, single note release stops, and all-new, easy-to-use patch
mapping.

Impact Soundworks, a joint venture between composers Andrew Aversa and
Wilbert Roget, II, was founded in 2007 with the goal of creating
innovative, affordable and unique sample libraries "designed with
composers in mind."

“When we released “Shreddage” in early 2010, we had no idea it would
be such an enormous success among producers, composers and even
guitarists looking to create truly realistic sampled rhythm guitar
parts,” said Aversa, lead designer of the library. “It was a
no-brainer to listen to those happy customers and apply their feedback
and suggestions to an expansion pack.”

The library was designed and produced by Aversa, an award-winning
composer and producer (Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, Super Street
Fighter II Turbo HD Remix) who developed the original “Shreddage” as
well as libraries like “Groove Bias” and “Koto Nation”. Javier
Gonzalez and Blake Robinson assisted with editing and scripting,
respectively.

“Shreddage X” functions as an add-on to the original “Shreddage”
library, adding 1,000 new samples recorded with the same classic metal
guitar, pristine DI signal chain and 24/44.1 recording quality. The
patches, programmed for Kontakt 4, are designed for easy, expressive
playability. No special programming, keyswitching or pedal control is
needed - all articulations can be triggered using the keyboard and
modwheel.

“Shreddage X” is available for immediate download via the Impact
Soundworks website (www.impactsoundworks.com) for $20 as an upgrade to
owners of the original library, or $69 as a complete bundle.
