Description

GeoShred Version 2.3, an exciting update to the award-winning GeoShred musical instrument for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, now with MIDI/MPE support. GeoShred, Winner of a 2017 Electronic Musician Editor's Choice Award as “one of the most innovative, groundbreaking products to emerge in the past twelve months”, has been enhanced with unprecedented MIDI/MPE I/O control, new effects, and additional model control parameters. 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 Version 2 Features Include: • A fluidly expressive playing surface + a Physically modeled guitar • MIDI IN/OUT and MPE support • MIDI control using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, virtual MIDI and all digital interfaces • MIDI configuration presets • Customizable control surface can be mapped to physical MIDI Controls • Inter-App Audio and Audiobus support. • 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 • 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. Some might think it’s the best evidence yet that there has indeed been reverse engineering of alien technology, but if that’s the case, then aliens play guitar…and worship Jimi Hendrix.” – Craig Anderton Harmony Central “Geoshred is a completely innovative music instrument that has become an essential tool for me in both worlds; on stage and in the studio. The quality, flexibility, expressibility and reliability of Geoshred have made it my go-to (and admittedly most used) iOS music app!” – Diego Tejeida, Haken Though it’s not possible for us to respond to support issues posted in iTunes reviews, we are committed to a great support experience for our users.

  • Fantastic Music Instrument!

    By Lakshmi Ramakrishnan
    Indian music uses extensive pitch bends (called as "gamakas"). In a traditional keyboard with the pitch bend wheel, you have to first set the bend range and then practice bending using the wheel but it is difficult to master the technique as there are hardware limitations. These guys have made it all so simple with this Geoshred app. Just use your finger and slide it to the left or right and it works like a charm! But capturing the bend properly into a DAW and reproducing it seems to be a little more complicated and challenging task. This app transmits using the latest MIDI language spec (MPE) and there is a steep learning curve. It didn't work very well for me. I am still working on understanding it. Overall I think this is the right direction to go in evolving the most awesome, greatest ever music instrument!

    This thing feels like a real instrument. It is very smooth and intuitive and sounds awesome. The best instrument I've found on mobile.

    This app is just good fun, and really makes laying down some soulful riffs easy as pie. I feel like a guitar guru in some cheesy movie when I pull this app out. But it's bada$$. At first I thought the sounds were lacking because I couldn't figure out how to use 90% of them, but it's pushed me to add some interesting soundscapes to my music. Just thinking differently about sounds. So I appreciate that. I use it on almost every jam I work on in my iPad, so get dis $#!+ Especially if you wanna be a riff master. Just look up some scales, they laid out all the chords in a great way for playing scales. Two thumbs up!
  • The best app I have ever used

    I am not usually one to review apps, but Jordan Rudess and Wizdom have created what I consider to be the finest app currently on the AppStore, so I feel obligated to talk about this. GeoShred isn't just some random synth app from the AppStore, but it is a full-fledged instrument. Although it takes a bit of time to properly learn all of the ins and outs of the app, it is ultimately worth it to learn. Because of its wonderful and hearty sound, I had to integrate it with my keyboard setup. Do yourself a service, and get this app!

    It's so much more than just shredding. This app is truly amazing. It IS an instrument. The possibilities are limitless. From soft acoustic to hardcore raunchy metal, you can create and edit all sounds to your liking. It is so easy to record to Garageband, and now that there is MIDI support, this app is unstoppable. Awesome riff creation awaits!
  • These guys totally knocked it out of the park this time!

    Wow, works on my iPhone too! The MIDI is comprehensive. In, Out, MPE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi. I've just realized that with MIDI, out it's also a great controller. I needed some help and they responded to me right away. Great stuff, keep blowing me away!
  • THIS APP ROCKS!!!

  • Best iOS musical instrument

    This is one of the best musical instruments on the iPad and now the iPhone. With the addition of MIDI capabilities it expands the power and capabilities even further. If you combine this with one of the MIDI USB interface apps on iOS, you can get a seamless low latency connection to you favorite DAW on your computer. If you need support it is easy to get immediate response and help from the developers. I highly recommend this app for any musician.
  • Yes! Universal!
