GeoShred’s performance surface with “almost magic” pitch rounding algorithms is coupled with a model of the physics of strings. 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.
GeoShred Play Features Include:
• A fluidly expressive playing surface + a Physically modeled guitar
• A diatonic keyboard where every key on the screen is in the scale.
• Support for backing tracks
• 3D touch on devices that support 3D touch.
• Inter-App Audio and Audiobus support.

The ultimate iOS instrument
It’s an instrument in your pocket - if even better on an iPad than an iPhone. It’s an extremely versatile lead guitar made accessible to a keyboardist. It’s a new challenge for mastery, too - capable of delivering on whatever effort you’re willing to invest. Start with GeoShred Play, then go Pro. ROI is there even before mastery.
As a heads up and wish list, most patches are only good entertainment, not playable without adjustment, though plenty to choose from. It’d be nice to have them prearranged better to sort the playable guitar-like sounds from the preset arpeggiated sounds, but you can arrange them yourself. I’d like to see the pure acoustic sounds library expanded a bit further - e.g. more focus on some nylon string guitar derived sounds.
Deficiencies aside, GeoShred delivers an instrument to a screen, and in a way one could hardly conceive of. There’s no going back to being without it.
I have a small issue with font size in your app
I love this app a lot you guys are so great. Even on an iPhone it works very good
BUT I HAVE A SMALL GRIPE
My gripe has to do with a font size issue. The print is very small
The reason why I use apple products is due to there accessibility options.
I have low vision and the text in the app is very small and does not respond to larger fonts for big print users through accessibility options
In IOS And does not have an option to increase the font size in the app itself
Thanks for looking in to this.
A couple of suggestions
1. Make it so that the software will respond to larger fonts from the IOS device through accessibility options
2. In the GeoShredPlay app in settings put a font size tab
There is all ready a font tab in settings
Either way it would fix the problem
And make this app much easier to use for those like me with less then perfect vision
Pleas consider this in future updates and do this with all of your apps
Thanks for creating this app it is the boss
Thank you for reading my review
Wonderful app and a very responsive tech support
[Updated] amazing app! Works really well and very intuitive to use. What makes it even better for me is that the developers responded to my issue very quickly and helped me resolve it and I really appreciate that! Cheers!
I love the app and have been using it for at least 2years but I recently switched to iPad Pro 2020 and the app drains so much of the battery even in background. I have a feeling that it runs on full power even in background that’s why it’s doing this. If devs could look into it that would be really great.
Developer Response ,
GeoShred is indeed compute heavy because it's solving the physics of musical instruments in real time. Not quite quantum mechanics but close. You can simply turn off "Background Audio" under "Menu> Settings> Audio> Enable Background Audio". In this case GeoShred will not compute/use battery, when it is in the background. Just be sure to turn it back on if you want to control GeoShred from MIDI when GeoShred is in the background.
