Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

GeoShred Pro Version 2.5, an exciting update to the award-winning GeoShred musical instrument for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. GeoShred, Winner of 2017 Electronic Musician Editor’s Choice Award as “one of the most innovative, groundbreaking products to emerge in the past twelve months”, has been enhanced with support for 3D touch (on iPhones that support 3D touch) control including MIDI/MPE Out, World Scales/Temperaments including Indian Ragas and Backing Tracks.

CONGRATS JORDAN RUDESS!! GeoShred, Winner of a 2017 Electronic Musician Editor’s Choice Award as “one of the most innovative, groundbreaking products to emerge in the past twelve months”, has been enhanced with unprecedented MIDI/MPE I/O control, new effects, and additional model control parameters.

What’s New in Version 2.5
• Support for 3D touch (on iPhones that support 3D touch) for control as well as MIDI/MPE Out
• Support for World Scales and Temperaments as well as user defined Scales/Temperaments
• Suport for Indian Ragas
• New Sympathetic String Resonator
• Backing Tracks from the iTunes Library

GeoShred is highly expressive when controlling, and being controlled by, instruments that use the upcoming “MPE” MIDI specification (MIDI Polyphonic Expression). It’s both a powerful synth and a formidable iPad based MIDI/MPE controller!

GeoShred is an expressive musical instrument with a multi-touch performance surface, coupled with an advanced physical model of a guitar. A fusion of Wizdom Music’s Geo Synthesizer user interface (Jordan Rudess), and moForte’s powerful, modeled guitar and effects chain based on the next generation Physical Modeling research of Dr. Julius O. Smith III of Stanford/CCRMA.

With GeoShred’s physical modeling synthesis, you can achieve realistic guitar sounds that bend, stretch and manipulate the sound into endless possibilities. You can explore, edit and control the physics of a guitar model – including solid or hollow body, nylon or metal strings, pick position, harmonics and more.

GeoShred is NOT just another app. GeoShred is a powerful, musical instrument that offers a performance environment on a multi-touch surface unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.

• A fluidly expressive playing surface + a Physically modeled guitar
• MIDI IN/OUT and MPE support
• MIDI control using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, virtual MIDI and all digital interfaces
• MIDI configuration presets
• 3D touch on iPhones that support 3D touch
