Instantly create unlimited, copyright-free guitar riffs. Just tap "Create" and listen to your new riff.

The easiest way to get started is to select from the huge list of preset musical styles, tap "Create", and a unique guitar riff will be made. The created riff is displayed as guitar tablature which you can listen to and save.

For advanced users wanting to harness the full power of Riffler, there is a huge range of customizable settings allowing you to fine tune and personalize your own unique sound.

• Guitarists looking to improve their playing, with endless new riffs to practice.

• Composers needing an additional creative spark of inspiration to complement their music.

• Musicians looking for a virtual guitarist for unlimited jam sessions.

• Producers wanting to stand out from the crowd by creating a library of unique guitar riffs instead of using the same samples and loops as everybody else.

• Most of all Riffler is fun! It's great for anybody looking to experiment and create their own music!

The created riff can be exported as MIDI or audio file.

Riffler is a standalone app and also an AUv3 plugin that can be loaded into a host music app. The Riffler AUv3 plugin can be synced inside a host app and can send audio and MIDI to other effects, synths, samplers and virtual instruments.

All hosts are compatible with Riffler's audio and certain hosts enable Riffler to send MIDI data. MIDI compatible hosts include AUM, Loopy Pro, Cubasis 3, Beatmaker 3, apeMatrix and Audiobus 3.

Riffler's audio engine creates stunningly realistic guitar tones.

All presets now have their tempo and key listed.
On the "Key" tab the key is now hidden when in "Manual" mode as it's not needed.
Minor bug fixes.

Terrific app for songwriters and musicians

Riffles is a super creative music app for any guitar player, songwriter or music producer. Somehow programmer Jonathan Bell has encoded the wisdom and experience of the most versatile virtual session guitar player ever. Riffles can create riffs of chords, leads, bass parts or even synth parts in a wide range of styles from Classic Rock to Blues to Metal (and all its incarnations) to Funk, EDM, Ambient, you name it.
There’s a full set of parameters you can control to determine the style, key, tempo, rate of bends, vibrato, chords, runs, scales and also amps & effects. Then click the generate button and you’ve got something that will sound decent and can be further customized. This is great for songwriting, for laying down some guitar tracks as audio or MIDI.
The developer has been updating the app regularly and also has a MacOS / Windows VST in the works.
It’s a great app from a developer who is doing something that is extremely valuable to any songwriter. Plus it’s on sale for the price of a big city beer.

Such a unique app!

I’m a keyboard/drums/bass/vocalist so the one area I struggle with or always have to put off, or settle with is guitar. This app really helps me curve just that issue. It’s fantastic! The only suggestion I would have for them is to make it so when you hit create new riff within a preset style of sound you got more variety. Unless I’m not doing something correct Idk. When I roll the dice I get a nice random option, once I like a style lets say Djent for example I wish the app created more options in that sound, but I know I can just turn some knobs and make that change myself too, so its not a pressing matter, haha but it would be a nice additional feature. Amazing app thought for real, I recommend it, and I’ve been showing it off to all my friends!

Fantastic Upgrade!

Really enjoying messing around with this. Honestly, watching videos made by the creator and other YouTubers hasn’t really helped me as much as just messing with it and exploring its capabilities. I’ve been able to apply this in orchestral music (staccato strings), EDM (running synth stabs) and lots of other instruments in genres thanks to the new ability to run in AUv3.

While there are lots of things this app can do, one thing I wanted that I haven’t figured out yet is how to use this as a basic acoustic guitar sound. That’s originally what I got the app for. I’ve been able to do so many amazing things besides that. I don’t know if I’m missing something or if it’s just that it isn't what this app aims to do. (Although it would be nice if added since I literally can’t find a single acoustic guitar generator.)

I can highly recommend this app despite my lack of an acoustic setup with it. It does what it does really, really well and has reached far beyond what I expected to use this app for, mostly.
