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. I keep adding to this review but this guys deserve all the best. Get it now!!!!

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.
