Checking Out: Riffage Metal by Impact Soundworks

As a guitar player for the last 32 years, I’m happy to say that I’ve had moments where I’ve just wanted to reach for plugins to do the playing for me. The Shreddage range is exceptional but it does take some work to sound realistic. that’s no bad thing as the features are excellent. Riffage: Metal is a great library to add human performances to your work. You can dial in your own guitar tones and let the phrase picker do the rest. To create a rhythm base to compositions, this is perfect and with the ability to use your own guitar tones, everything can match up to your project needs. That isn’t to say the onboard tones aren’t great either. I’d happily use the amps provided in productions, coupled with the vast range of effects. This library is for the composer on the go who needs to inject a bit of metal in to their work without sacrificing their time. They are also great riffs to jam over and in productions, shred to your hearts content!
