It's not just an App, it's an Instrument!

GeoShred Pro Version 6.5, with In-App-Purchases for GeoSWAM and Naada instruments on devices running iOS 13 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.

There are over 200,000 artists over 120 countries perform GeoShred with 40% of those users in India.

Best control surface and sounds plus infinite parameter tweaking

GeoShred Pro is simply one of the best control surfaces and performance tools in the entire app-verse ! I have been onboard since it’s release and with the new GeoStrings and Woodwinds Modeling packages it is over the top. We, the professional musicians and hobbyist have, (literally, at our fingertips) expressive, professional grade instruments that offer the range of emotion and personality that rivals and complements the multifaceted range of instruments our cultures have developed over many centuries. GeoShred, and touch control instruments in general, are not ‘instruments of the future’, they are the ‘instruments of now’. Present, alive, and fully articulate. In your hand, as a novice, you can spend hours of enjoyment... as a professional, at your fancy, you have an instrument that is as flexible and nuanced as any other. Plus, and this is important, the customer service is second to none. I’ve had one glitch in all my years as a customer and they got on it immediately and resolved the glitch within 48 hours. They did not stop until they figured it out. I am very impressed and I highly recommend this app to YOU, the individual that is looking for a professional quality instrument with unbelievable sonic qualities that is natural to play... at a GREAT price. plus, as I mentioned, highly configurable to your personality.

Best Interface-Best Sounds!

A real delight to play, create and stretch the fabric of music itself. A professional effort from front to back, yet ease of use is emphasized rather than made to suffer. To boast the full collection of instruments might be an area for future thoughts towards offering additional subsets to support various ensemble needs. Think of Brubeck 5: or other smaller ensembles. The sounds themselves are top shelf. I immediately understood why they aren’t given away on street corners. Very much like playing a superior and delightfully constructed instrument after playing one’s of lesser quality’s; the better instrument makes you play better. The same is true with all the instruments; the quality is better than most and it makes you sound better because you want so much to dive into their rich and unending textures. My last observation comes from being a disabled user of GeoShred; limited use of digits on the control surface keyboard is not the same obstacle the well adopted ‘piano’ visual metaphor is. Good job of ‘thinking outside the 88’s’! I judge the value of any app by how much fun I have using it. 5 star design and concepts. 5 star implementation. I’ve run out of stars!

Absolutely amazing instrument and controller - best I’ve ever played

At first, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but knowing that this came from the genius of Jordan Rudess, I knew that it wasn’t going to disappoint. I have to admit that at this point, this has completely blown my mind! This is the most playable instrument I’ve ever played, virtual or physical. Once you get the hang of how it works, I doubt you will be able to put this down before your fingers start bleeding!
I also love the fact that I can use this with AUM as a controller for other instruments hooked up in AUM. No other MIDI controller comes anywhere near close to the expressiveness that’s possible with this controller. I also have it on my iPhone 7 Plus which has 3D Touch and even on its small screen, this is amazingly playable. This is the kind of app that touch screens were made for and really showcases their potential. I can’t believe it took me so long to find this.
If you’re in the market for an amazing MIDI controller that’s playable and expressive, then your search has ended. Just hit that “BUY” button already!
