It's not just an app, it's an instrument!

GeoShred Pro Version 5, is an exciting update, now with In-App-Purchases for GeoSWAM instruments on devices running iOS 11.4 or greater.

Imagine a new kind of musical instrument ...

An instrument where a performer can fluidly express multiple independent voices. An instrument that is both pitch fluid, and helps the performer precisely reach desired musical pitches in any temperament.

GeoShred is an award-winning, fluidly expressive musical instrument that runs on multi-touch devices.

It has a performance surface with “almost magic” pitch rounding algorithms which is coupled with a model of the physics of several types of musical instruments, support for AUv3, MIDI In/Out, MPE, and 3D Touch. It’s a fusion of Jordan Rudess’ performance concepts and a powerful, modeled guitar/effects based on the Physical Modeling research of Dr. Julius O. Smith III of Stanford/CCRMA. And, GeoShred's expressive control can be used with other synthesizers.

Tens of thousands of artists in 48 countries perform GeoShred with 30% of those users in India.

GeoShred is the Gold Medal Winner of the 2019 Denny Award, winner of a 2019 Guthman New Musical Instrument Award, and 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".

“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

One of the best

Still the best of its kind.

There are some great apps for IOS to make music. This one stands out amongst them. The sounds, the interface, the control, MIDI connectivity, the flexibility, all are amazing. Just watch a few videos that showcase it and you will want it.
Have fun.

One thing; I just read a review that raves about this app as being amazing for so many reasons and said it was his favorite app, but the idiot gave it 4 stars. What planet are these people on? I suppose he would say he leaves 5 stars for something not yet developed that is even better. He needs to know that if a better one comes that he still has a star left to give. I wish I knew what was in that bozos brain. I rarely use name calling but in this case I have no choice.

I see a whole bunch of 5 star reviews and only one 4 star going back 2 years. How can the overall rating be 4.8? Come on Apple, these apps are making you a lot of cash, at least get the ratings right.

GeoShred rocks

This app is brilliantly created
So many details and configurations that can be done
Swam instruments are pretty pricey but they sound incredible

Luvindaapp ,


Wow just wow! I’m a singer and not very proficient on any instrument except voice. This is a game changer! It’s like I don’t have to be a guitar player for 20 years and 10,000 hours to just create something simple and sweet to sing to or just have fun and jam.

Thank you and I’ll definitely watch the Jordan Rudess videos so I can learn and get inspired.

I was just searching for an explanation of what an AUv3 was (I’m such a beat making newbie omg) and stumbled upon this lol... love it, love it, love it!
