Description

GeoShred Pro Version 2.5, 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", has been enhanced with support for 3D touch (on iPhones that support 3D touch) control including MIDI/MPE Out, World Scales/Temperaments including Indian Ragas and Backing Tracks. 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 2.5 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 • 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. • 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.

    Love this App. Deep but simple to understand. I think of this as another instrument that’s expressive and fun to play.
  • Awesome stand-alone or as a controller

    Playing sounds within the app is amazing, as many other reviews have stated. However, I’m happiest about the recent updates that have made it a great MIDI controller with MPE. I’ve used it with other iOS apps, as well as with hardware synths, and I love it!

    Just got this on the Black Friday sale.... The most inspiring fun app to play for me... UI / playability is great and with the presets to jump from, every note takes me somewhere else.
  • Spectacular

    The next evolution of synthesis. Beyond simple waveforms and filters, beyond sample playback, real nuance with spectacularly rich sound. Geoshred captures the future of instrumentation. I’m dying for a plugin for my DAW!!!
  • Perfect

    I love this app. I ended my search for Guitar sound when I modded one of the pre-sets. My advice. Drop everything else and concentrate on this app. When glass turns smooshy and moldable, from glass to bumpy stretchable, lengthened from the sides then temporarily hardened, no need for a keyboard. No other app and I have all of yours, are necessary. Just more guitar sounds.
  • Sounds just like the real thing

    When I showed this app to my dad, who has been playing electric guitar for over 50 years, the smile on his face was huge! The pitch slides you can pull off with no effort are mind blowing! This sounds better than any other guitar simulation I have ever heard.
  • DEEP!

    Just about everything good that can be said about this ap can be found in the other reviews so I will skip all the usual superlatives. What really separates GeoShred from other guitar aps is its amazing depth. The degree to which you can fine-tune every aspect of the sound and performance characteristics of each preset is extraordinary. Also the presets themselves (and there are dozens and dozens of them) demonstrate the tremendous range of instruments that the ap can emulate. It provides everything from the ability to fine-tune the level of string transients to the abilty to use a seemingly countless range of modes and turnings, plus the ability to create any number of additional ones. There is nothing like this ap out there. And there probably never will be another that will approach it. Finally, the sound quality of the original waves and the FX is top-notch. It does not get any better. Totally amazing. My only complaints are these: The tremendous depth complicates GeoShred's ease-of-use. That is not a major problem becuase you can just skip over all the deep controls and stick with the kid stuff, if you prefer. Secondly, I have trouble with what appears to be a bug: apparently creating a preset does not save the scale and tuning; the scale keeps reverting to a mode I did not select. Weird, but I hope they will fix this fairly minor problem.
  • I saw someone use it and immediately grokked.

    Go check it out on YouTube if you’re on the fence. Most likely what you are hoping for...
  • These guys totally knocked it out of the park this time!

    Wow, works on my iPhone too. Love the 3-D touch! 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! Love The new sympathetic resonator and the Arabic scales!
  • One of the best apps out there!

    Great sounding guitar modeling synth with an incredible touch interface that doubles as a mpe midi instrument! If you have 3D Touch it can also utilize that for even more dynamic control
