  • FX chain presets are portable between instruments!



The Lineup

Shreddage 3 Jupiter
(upgraded from Shreddage 2: Absolute Electric Guitar)
Built on our most popular virtual instrument! This is a super thick-sounding 7-string with a full, dark tone and some of the chunkiest powerchords and chugs anywhere.

Shreddage 3 Rogue
(upgraded from Shreddage 2 IBZ)
Another 7-string guitar ideal for heavy rock and metal, with a legendary Japanese tone that is the most aggressive in our entire lineup.

Shreddage 3 Serpent
(upgraded from Shreddage 2 SRP)
Recorded by YouTube star guitarist Jules Conroy (FamilyJules7x), this 7-string is the most well-rounded tone of our current lineup, making it very flexible for lead and rhythm playing in multiple genres.

Shreddage 3 Archtop
(upgraded from Archtop: Hollowbody Electric Guitar)
A Sadowsky Jim Hall model recorded with two ultra-warm pickups through analog tube DI! S3 Archtop is better than ever for styles like jazz, fusion, pop, funk, R&B, and blues, and includes all-new samples such as new layers of palm mutes and rakes.

Shreddage 3 Abyss
(upgraded from Shreddage Bass 2)
Our finest bass guitar with six strings of 100% custom made, low-end goodness with a stunning 4.5 octave range and super fat/warm tone recorded through a tube DI.

Full NKS Compatibility and New Snapshots

Every one of these instruments, just like Shreddage 3 Stratus, is fully NKS compatible and sports a wide variety of guitar/bass tones right out of the box in the form of Snapshots. These are a great way to inspire your music and get right to playing (or recording) without using ANY external plugins.

Pricing, Upgrades, Crossgrades

All guitars listed above will retail for $149 for new customers, with free Kontakt Player compatibility. S3 Abyss is $99 for new customers.

If you own the previous versions of any of these instruments, your upgrade cost will be just $20 per instrument. Each of these is a brand new library & serial number with a completely new script, new snapshots, and in some cases even new + revised samples.

If you own any Shreddage 3 instrument and want to crossgrade to a different S3 instrument but don't own the previous version, you'll save $30 on every crossgrade.

** A note on the S3 license system **

When S3 Stratus was first released, we described a license system where you would buy a single S3 license for use with all products. Unfortunately, in December (not long after we released Stratus), Native Instruments informed us that going forward they require all releases to use individual serial numbers.

The new license system is now standard with all other Kontakt Player instruments: each S3 guitar or bass has its own license and serial number, and its own entry in Native Access. Of course, we are still offering the $30 discount on other S3 instruments that we initially promised with the S3 Stratus release.

Oh Lord.
Audience loves the S3.
Thought I was some chump pretending until I told them.

5150 OD is outstanding.

Any idea when the original Shreddage Gibson SG will be upgraded? Would have made a complete collection if the LP is included.

Seems like another no-brainer. I must have an 8-string one with ISW's signature chunky palm mutes using the engine!

Yep, we'll be bringing it to the S3 engine with expanded functionality.

As for release date of these 5 instruments, we're shooting for NEXT Monday (8 days from now)

I'm not seeing the upgrade offer in my account. Shall I email as you described above or do I have to wait for the offer to appear?

All the best
