GeoShred App Description

GeoShred Pro Version 2.6, an exciting update to the award-winning GeoShred musical instrument for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. GeoShred, Winner of 2017 Electronic Musician Editor's Choice Award as "one of the most innovative, groundbreaking products to emerge in the past twelve months". Now everyone can shred using the the new diatonic playing surface! You can Shred the Blues and never hit a wrong note. Slide your finger in any direction and let the magic happen using a scale that fits perfectly against a backing track GeoShred is highly expressive when controlling, and being controlled by, instruments that use the upcoming “MPE” MIDI specification (MIDI Polyphonic Expression). It’s both a powerful synth and a formidable iPad based MIDI/MPE controller! GeoShred is an expressive musical instrument with a multi-touch performance surface, coupled with an advanced physical model of a guitar. A fusion of Wizdom Music’s Geo Synthesizer user interface (Jordan Rudess), and moForte’s powerful, modeled guitar and effects chain based on the next generation Physical Modeling research of Dr. Julius O. Smith III of Stanford/CCRMA. With GeoShred’s physical modeling synthesis, you can achieve realistic guitar sounds that bend, stretch and manipulate the sound into endless possibilities. You can explore, edit and control the physics of a guitar model – including solid or hollow body, nylon or metal strings, pick position, harmonics and more. GeoShred is NOT just another app. GeoShred is a powerful, musical instrument that offers a performance environment on a multi-touch surface unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. GeoShred Pro Version 2.6 Features Include: • A fluidly expressive playing surface + a Physically modeled guitar • A diatonic keyboard where every key on the screen is in the scale. • MIDI IN/OUT and MPE support • MIDI control using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, virtual MIDI and all digital interfaces • MIDI configuration presets • 3D touch on iPhones that support 3D touch • Customizable control surface can be mapped to physical MIDI Controls • Inter-App Audio and Audiobus support. • Backing tracks from the iTunes library • Multiple Modeled effects • Modeled feedback and VCF effects • Echo, a unique looper and multi-tap echo • Finger vibrato, slide and fret scraping • Unique mono mode using intervals of multiple strings. • Built in Arpeggiator • Alternative tunings • Support for world scales and temperaments including Indian Ragas, Arabic and Balinese scales. • Intelligent pitch rounding • Easily share presets with friends   Praise for GeoShred “GeoShred is brilliant- it’s a real instrument.” – Eddie Jobson “A fantastic new invention which is going to revolutionize the way music is played, expressed and learned! “GeoShred” is one of the foremost best musical inventions I’ve had the pleasure to experience in recent years. Definitely 5 stars out of 5! GIGANTASTIVISSIMO…..R…A…Z !!!!!” – Patrick Moraz “That’s just nuts. You’re [Jordan] the best-guitarist-without-a-guitar of all time” – Joe Satriani “GeoShred is a breakthrough [musical instrument] for the iPad.

GeoShred App Reviews

  • Geo Diatonic

    By halfcack
    Thank you for pursuing this app. I knew it had potential beyond any app or keyboard. I wrote you last year that this app alone will be remembered as the best guitar simulator ever made. The new version with diatonic keyboard is way past imagination. We are going to engineer a compatible playing surface. Our vision is to use “flexible” glass. There's nothing to reveal at this time. It will not be like a Roli. What it will be is a solid glass surface strap on with heat sensing. It will sense the heat from the hand, creating instant depression no lag with the smooth solid feel of glass lacking bumps. The surface will be eye popping. Think of 3-D lightning. Manufacturing is simple. It is design and layout of the surface that is so wide open. More guitar presets if you have the time. Thank you Jordan.
  • An absolute dream come true

    By RG Piano Tuning & Repair
    After toying with different synths and IOS apps for years this one takes the cake. It has added a whole new level of expression to the roli sea block I had just purchased a few weeks ago. This program has greatly enabled me to to play with one hand what used to require 2 hands and a pedal to do in live gigs without lengthy preparation. Thank You Jordan!
  • Awesome Instrument

    By Fejj Doorednu
    This has been the best developed IOS instrument and the recent updates have only made it better. For those that do not know Jordan Rudess should know that his passion is to make music touchable for everyone. You can just play away or you can go deep with the MIDI and MDE capabilities and presets that blow your mind as you dig into the settings and form your own sounds. This instrument is built for the music pro, but is completely accessible to anyone with an interest in starting to explore music. It is well worth having in your arsenal of electronic musical instruments.
  • Serious Instrument

    By Aaaarrrgggg!
    This is an awesome example of the evolution of instruments in IOS. So much detail and control and they keep making it better. Absolutely one of my all time favorite music apps!
  • Desert Island Good!!!

    By Joaquin P.
    I own 90% of the best IOS synths in the App Store and then some. If I lost them all and had to repurchase but only be able to take 10 to a desert island GeoShred would be one of the chosen few. A lot of synths sound good but over time I keep come by back to the most unique and playable. GeoShred and Animoog would be my favorite had to own. Other apps that I would repurchase in a heartbeat would be Animoog, ThumbJam, Sunrizer, Syntronik (full pack), KQ Dixie (because I have thousands of DX7 presets), Model 15, iVCS3, iM1, iWavestation, iMono/Poly, iMini, iProphet, iSem, and the synths by Yonac. Well, I went beyond 10, who cares...and I’m still trying to find a good drum app. So far Rock DM is winning, although I still have to try Drum Session and DrumPerfect Pro.
  • Top Notch

    By Clurichaun
    You can manipulate sounds on here and create some stunning and unique material. On my iPhone 8 it is a bit small to take full advantage of all of the features but on my iPad Pro 10.5 it really shines. One of the most outside the box, music apps out there and one that isn’t a throw away, you will forget about. Definitely worth every penny!
  • Awesome

    By Oldrumguy
    This app is a must have if you need a true guitar sound don’t leave home without it. What happened to space wiz?
  • Best mobile synth instrument to date.

    By PMASH
    Responsive with deep complex sounds. Extremely intuitive patch construction. No surprise that this app is the brainchild of the keyboard GOAT. Must have app for any synth player.
  • Go To Playing surface!

    By Drelbs2345
    It's a fantastic guitar, but excellent for other purposes As well. Highly recommended for anyone who with music on your iDevice!
  • Love It!

    By Gitarzz
    I'm a guitar player. Why would I need a guitar emulation app? This isn't just a guitar emulation app. This has sounds that are inspired by guitar and you play as if you were playing on strings (depending on your settings), i.e. bends and vibrato, you can set up your signal chain like you would a guitar, but the sounds that come out of this are much different from anything I've ever been able to pull from six strings over a couple of magnets sent through some transistors and into some tubes for amplification. If you don't know the fretboard there are now settings that make it easy for anyone to play music in GeoShred. If you prefer a keyboard controller it has the necessary midi capabilities. I haven't looked in depth at the midi programmability so I don't know if mapping is available but I assume there is probably some because I've seen videos of Jordan Rudess playing on a Roli Seaboard controlling this app and it sounds amazing with the multidimensional control that keyboard affords. To my knowledge there isn't another synthesizer that creates guitar inspired sounds in the way that this one does and the sounds are pretty awesome. That alone makes this a must have app. Awesomely unique. One of my favorite ways to jam... I open up Korg Gadget and create a progression using the synths and drum machines available within. Once I have something that's good to jam over I put it on infinite repeat and flip over to GeoShred where I can practice speed technique or just cut loose and wail. Lots of fun and different every time.
