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.

• A fluidly expressive playing surface + a Physically modeled guitar

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

Fantastic Music Instrument!
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!
A Real Instrument
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!
