Default What are the minimum requirements (in terms of price) to use Shreddage in Reaper?

I would really like to make use of the Shreddage plugin in some of my projects, but I haven't been able to figure out what exactly it is that I need in order to do so. I know that this is not simply a VSTi. It says that it requires either Kontakt or a SFZ-compatible sampler.

As far as I can tell Kontakt sells for around 400 EUR so that is pretty much out of the question for me as at this point I only intend to use this for prototyping ideas to present to my actual guitarists.

So what about the SFZ-option? Does anyone have some experience with that? The Shreddage page doesn't really go into detail as to what features are missing from that version only that some are. Also, what do I need to use this in Reaper? Will SFZ+ do?

Cheers,

Oliver

from the manual page for it as found on the shreddage website:

look at page 2

Yep, thanks. Exactly what I found as well, mere seconds after I posted... D'Oh!

Now the only bit missing is a description of the specific differences between the Kontakt and SFZ versions... though I've already found some hints at that, too.

Unless someone wants to share their hands-on experience with using the SFZ-version of Shreddage in Reaper (I'd still be interested in that), I guess we could consider this closed.

Thanks!

Oliver

I'm just guessing here but from what I can read, the Kontakt version will likely be ready to roll with a multi and keyswitches and likely uses the scripting that Kontakt provides...

The Linux sampler instructions seem to be saying that you have to set all that up your self... but once done it should work OK...

I don't use this lib.. but do use Kontakt..
I guess I don't care to install Linux sampler

Will Shreddage work with the free Kontakt player?

I know some sample libraries will work with Kontakt player (some need the 'full' version of Kontakt). I didn't see any mention of this listed in the specs.

It sure would be a nice option for the OP if it did.

Seems it won't really. See this thread: http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=314952

Anyway, I guess I will give the SFZ version a try. Looks straight forward enough in the tutorial videos I discovered now.

There are also some more details about the difference between the two versions on the SFZ announcement thread: http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=353994
