Shreddage 3 Abyss is the evolution of our custom six-string bass library Shreddage Bass 2, taking the complete set of over 10,000 recordings and placing them in our cutting-edge S3 engine. Featuring the sound of a one-of-a-kind, custom Muckelroy electric bass, Shreddage 3 Abyss is a super versatile instrument that starts at a floor-shaking drop G and extends up four and a half octaves. Now you can enjoy these incredible samples with even better performance playback, strumming, articulation mapping, and tone options!
This instrument was performed by master bassist, composer, and session musician Tony Dickinson, who brought his massive experience and skill to recording the library from both the perspective of a performer and a producer. To capture the most pristine and well-rounded DI tone possible, we used a Universal Audio Solo/610 analog tube pre for maximum fatness, punch, and warmth. Each string was recorded in exhaustive detail across every fret at multiple dynamics, with up to 8x round robin (RR) variations per note.
Now, with the included Console FX rack and mixer, you don’t even need external plugins to mix and process the instrument; just choose from our dozens of included presets and you’re ready to shred. Every articulation can be mapped or triggered however you want using Total Articulation Control Technology 2.0 (TACT). There are more ways to tweak and play these articulations than ever: dynamic layer and mute level adjustments, per-articulation velocity to volume, Strum Mode, and much more.
