GeoShred Pro Version 3.0, is an exciting update to the award-winning GeoShred musical instrument for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, NOW WITH AUv3 plugin support for devices running iOS 11.4 or greater.
GeoShred is a unique, expressive musical instrument, which models the physics of a real guitar and makes it possible for everyone to shred.
A winner of a 2019 Guthman New Musical Instrument Award, and a winner of the 2017 Electronic Musician Editor's Choice Award as "one of the most innovative, groundbreaking products to emerge in the past twelve months".
GeoShred’s performance surface with “almost magic” pitch rounding algorithms is coupled with a model of the physics of strings, support for AUv3, MIDI In/Out, MPE and 3D Touch. It’s a fusion of Jordan Rudess’ performance concepts and moForte’s powerful, modeled guitar/effects based on the Physical Modeling research of Dr. Julius O. Smith III of Stanford/CCRMA. Add to that, incredible support for MIDI/MPE which makes GeoShred both a powerful synth and a formidable MIDI/MPE controller!
With GeoShred 3.0, everyone can shred using the 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

Ratings and Reviews
It deserves 5 Star, but I still want more!!!
I am forcing myself to stop playing along with the backing tracks in GeoShred Pro long enough to write a review. In a word - WOW! I’ve puttered with some other iPad music software, but for some reason, the GeoShred user interface just feels natural to me. I’m a long time keyboard player who has been struggling with joint pain and it has pretty much eliminated my regular keyboard playing. But now with two fingers and a blues backing track, I can pretend I am Stevie Ray or Jimi. I certainly play GeoShred “guitar” better than the real thing. The ingenuity that Jordan has put into this design is giving me access to music again. Thanks!
I am giving this app a 5 star rating, but I sure would like the ability to change the key or tempo of the backing tracks. I’d also like more backing tracks. Eventually I will decide to record them in GarageBand or something, but for now I am lazily enjoying the default factory blues track. I’ve experimented with using Novation’s LaunchPad + AudioBus, but there’s not a lot of blues there. Sorry I am fixated on that genre - it’s just really stuck in my head.
In my opinion, this is a must have iPad music app.
A real instrument!
I like this very much. This is a very interesting instrument. I play Indian music, among others, and I find myself playing relatively easily. I gave it only four stars (That is now changed to five!) because it’s hard to access all the info, and I hate having to step through to find the sound if it’s #60, for instance. (Received new info... thank you!) Otherwise, a very interesting and playable instrument. I happen to love the tuning in 4ths, my instrument has that so I find things easily here. Also would love to have some more and better acoustic sounds. UPDATE; I have received more info, and now I’m really liking this TOTALLY NEW INSTRUMENT! Five stars ! more discoveries await, including better acoustic instrument sounds. VERY playable!
Desert Island Good!!!
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.
