Shreddage 2 IBZ was conceived after ISW received countless requests to sample different guitars in the Shreddage engine. They heard you loud and clear, and have 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.
Shreddage 2 IBZ includes a custom script engine created as an evolution of Shreddage II. As you’ll see on the Perform page below, ISW done away with a separate Fretboard page - now, all your essential performance controls and views are in the same place.
All controls can now be MIDI learned, even vibrato and unison bending, or controlled with the mouse. The fretboard engine has been much-improved with new views to easily see which strings and frets are in use. Clicking Advanced allows control of the fretboard engine, displaying controls such as fret preference, hand size, picking style, and more.
Every articulation can be assigned to trigger via keyswitch, velocity, or MIDI CC - even power chords (and power mutes/staccatos)! Along with other useful tweaking options, you can set up virtually any performance or sequencing setup you’d like.
Delve deeper into IBZ with controls for extra noises, velocity curve, MIDI guitar support (“Split MIDI Channels”) and other options that can dramatically enhance the realism of your virtual guitar parts!
The custom FX rack includes a tube screamer-style distortion pedal, three EQs, two amps, a compressor, delay, stereo widener, and of course a selection of excellent cabinet impulses for maximum tone flexibility. Naturally, we’ve also created a selection of FX rack presets to get your inspiration flowing!
Lastly, for advanced users and hardcore tweakers, ISW created a “Advanced” settings tab where you can really go deep into the instrument engine. Here you can change things like portamento crossfades and separate down/upstroke pick offsets, palm mute layers, and anti-repetition settings.
