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".

Ratings and Reviews
Amazing App, I shouldn’t have waited so long to purchase it.
I recently got GeoPro and some Swam sounds after only having GeoPlay, and it is a blast to jam with, set your scale, or even a custom scale and play. Just jamming is so much fun. I sometimes create a simple backing track in AUM, and go to town, It’s a blast. It’s AUv3, so inside a host/DAW it’s easy to record the audio from what I play into another Au app, then playing it back in a new way. It’s great for live playing but sequencing the app with midi is also great. All sounds are top notch. It’s also a MPE controller for all your iOS MPE needs. It’s so realistic and expressive to play. Geoshred pro is amazing and the new swam sounds put this app up there with the best of them. If you play guitar this is a definite must buy because the interface is designed in a similar fashion. It’s easy for guitar players to pick it up and play it fairly well right off the bat. But even if you don’t it sounds amazing and can be payed by anyone. Amazing App, I shouldn’t have waited so long to purchase it.
Leave it to Jordan to actually invent an instrument! Our simple earthling instruments were no challenge haha. This is really amazing ... it actually always feels musical and each patch/instrument inspires it’s own individual way… Responds to humanity if that makes sense. … the editing capabilities are insane (they were like 50 scales I’ve never even heard of (which I’m not completely sure arent made up names to mess w us jk haha)available in this thing and even though I’m guitar player I can appreciate a flawless octave switch… You can fly through the octaves without missing anything. I’ll admit I was intrigued because I consider Mr. Rudess To be not only the most technically gifted that the most beautifully melodic and brilliant musician I’ve ever witnessed… I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at how many mediately addicted to this is from it and I’ve already recorded a solo on my own music.I freaking love innovators ... especially when they’re from Long Island (Manhasset 🤘🏽). Thanks JR. - ur pal MIKE 13
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.
