Wizdom Music & moForte announce the release of GeoShred Version 2.5, an exciting update to the award-winning GeoShred musical instrument and MIDI controller.
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 upgraded 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.
GeoShred Pro 2.5 is available as a free upgrade to existing users. This latest release adds:
• 3D Touch (on iPhones that support 3D Touch) to control any of GeoShred’s expressive parameters. As a MIDI controller, GeoShred coupled with 3D touch, is a full featured MIDI/MPE Controller.
• Support for World Scales and Temperaments including Indian Ragas. There is a new sympathetic string resonator modeled after what is found in many Indian musical instruments.
• Backing tracks can now be played from the iTunes library so that you can do a full blow- away solo performance. 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 modeled synth and a formidable iPad AND iPhone 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.
