This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.

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

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.
Amazing, fantastic, spectacular, unique, extraordinary
I am just getting the tip of my toes in this ocean of sounds. The octaves, the effects, the presets, the scales, the sounds. Everything in this app is more than out of this world. An special app for guitarists and for wannabe guitarists like me. You can do everything that a guitar can do and more. What has been accomplished here has to be thought by futuristic nerd aliens. 6 stars. The New Arabic scales is a great idea I have been tuning GeoShred for months into those scales for fun and now it’s all about selecting them. Didn’t there were that much Arabian scales and kinds of styles. Thanks again GeoShred. What we need now is different guitarists presets like Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Steve Vai, Hendrix. That would be amazing
Really do enjoy this app just make music for myself, try to find a place for it in every song, everything works perfect, I couldn’t figure something out sent message to support next day there was the answer, can’t ask anything more from a great app and great company always look forward to the next update thank you
