Instantly create unlimited, copyright-free guitar riffs. Just tap "Create" and listen to your new riff. Riffler is a standalone app and also an AUv3 plugin that can be loaded into a host music app.

The easiest way to get started is to select from the large 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's advanced artificial intelligence engine, there is a huge range of customizable settings allowing you to fine tune your own unique sound.

The created riff can be exported MIDI file.

Riffler can be used as an AUv3 plugin inside a host app. All hosts are compatible with Riffler's audio and certain hosts enable Riffler to send MIDI data to other synths. MIDI compatible hosts include AUM, Loopy Pro, Cubasis 3, Beatmaker 3, apeMatrix and Audiobus 3.

Riffler's audio engine creates stunningly realistic guitar tones.

• 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.

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.

Super Fun & High Quality Generation Everytime

This app is amazing! You can set a ton of parameters and have it create one great sounding guitar riff after the next. Easily export the midi, or audio to use in your favorite DAW/Host and trigger any sounds you want. The audio is quality as well, so use the loops if you like too. Everything it creates is yours to use anyway you would like to use it. Use it to practice guitar, or create original music. There’s so many genres of music to select from, and different parameters to set, ie key, scale, tempo, rhythm, tuning, character, gaps, etc.. or randomize everything and see what you get. It’s unreal how fun this is but also how many great riffs it pumps out. I literally save/favorite almost every single one. If you play guitar or make music I highly recommend this app. Top notch and well worth the money!
Update - now with AUv3 10 Stars!

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.
