Not a day goes without playing this. All thanks to Jordan & his team for making this wonderful app.. It’s like I carry lot of instruments on my single iPad.. A must have app for all musicians... - Madan Pisharody
GeoShred Pro Version 5, with In-App-Purchases for GeoSWAM and Naada instruments on devices running iOS 11.4 or greater.
Imagine a new kind of musical instrument ...
An instrument where a performer can fluidly express multiple independent voices. An instrument that is both pitch fluid, and helps the performer precisely reach desired musical pitches in any temperament.
GeoShred is an award-winning, fluidly expressive musical instrument that runs on multi-touch devices.
It has a performance surface with “almost magic” pitch rounding algorithms which is coupled with a model of the physics of several types of musical instruments, support for AUv3, MIDI In/Out, MPE, and 3D Touch. It’s a fusion of Jordan Rudess’ performance concepts and a powerful, modeled guitar/effects based on the Physical Modeling research of Dr. Julius O. Smith III of Stanford/CCRMA. And, GeoShred's expressive control can be used with other synthesizers.
Tens of thousands of artists in 48 countries perform GeoShred with 30% of those users in India.
GeoShred is the Gold Medal Winner of the 2019 Denny Award, winner of a 2019 Guthman New Musical Instrument Award, and winner of the 2017 Electronic Musician Editor's Choice Award as "one of the most innovative, groundbreaking products to emerge in the past twelve months".

GeoShred is not just another music synthesizer app. It is an awesome musical instrument. Seeing musicians compose and perform with GeoShred at par with conventional instruments brought me here. As a music lover and hobbyist, I am enjoying the app and exploring it's various features. The physical modeling technology used in the app generates unbelievable sounds of various instruments precisely. The latest feather in the cap is Naada 1, a collection of Indian instruments. It has instruments including Bansuri, Saraswathy Veena, Classical Violin, Sarangi which are a treat for Indian music lovers. Kudos to the entire team for this amazing app and the set of instruments. I recommend this instrument.
For the last 3 days, GeoShred crashes as soon as it is opened on my iPad mini. For the last 4years or so it was never a problem. Can the developer please suggest a fix for this?
My iOS is 12.5.6

Amazingly great app for acoustic feel
Sir Namasthe I am 68, retired govt servant, passion for music. Yesterday I got iPod along with GeoShred. I am 0 knowledge on it sir. I used to play simple Telugu Indian songs on my keyboard. Self lerning. I had seen Ur video very nice. Sir how can I get teaching for GeoShred for my personal entertainment. Kindly guide me to understand GeoShred board features to go for minimam play. Where to start etc. Thanks for your support sir.
This app is monster app in its self this app can be used with different stores like GarageBand et cetera this the Geo Swam collection has lot of western instruments like clarinet trumpet saxophone violin viola cello oboe and each instrument is very close to the original musical instrument
This is a very very great application
I am a blind person and I am using the iPad with the help of an accessibility called VoiceOver
Please make this app better for a blind person
I wish this app could be user friendly for a blind person
I can’t explain how amazing and empowering this app is for composing and performing.. Thanks for this superb application
I have always been one of your fans...
Thanks for such wonderful creation.
It’s good I’m using
A proud user of GeoShred, I have been experimenting with this App for some time now.
As someone who understands software and the kind of engineering involved in creating a product like this, I applaud the dilligence and passion of the product team at GeoShred in creating a product that is a joy to use - be it the well thought out product design so that the logic is like playing a guitar - or be it the wide range of instruments and sounds one can use or plug into the tool. It opens up a multitude of sounds through its own design and seamless plugins.
As a student of music, the interface provides me with an ease of use and customization that not only helps me with my experiments in creating and composing songs but also charmed me into playing light melodies as well as Hindustani classical music on it.
A highly reccommended software for people like me who experiment with music, whether professionally or as a hobby.
Honestly, I'm having a hard time not getting overwhelmed by the plethora of features and possibilities this offers me! Without getting into the technicalities of the interface, the syth engine and the mechanics, which is available in various tutorials, I would say the experience of working through all the possibilities is almost meditative.
What is as much worth mentioning as the product itself, is the kind of support the team provides. Everytime I have reached out to them with queries, I have received responses that are positively solution oriented, and offered in good time - not a frequent experience with customer service today!
Kudos for bringing it all together Team GeoShred!
Great app…. Good job guys.. I am loving it
I’m suddenly feeling that the sound of my geoflute preset is suddenly sounding little rougher than what it used be like earlier. I tried resetting the preset, but it’s just not working. If I uninstall the app would I be able to download it wilupt paying again?
nice ಅಪ್ಪ aste ಬಜ್ಗಗುತ್ದಸ್ಬ್ಜ್ಞಾನ್ನ್ನವಿವ್ಸ್ಬ್ಬ್ನ್ಮ್ಸ್ವ್ಕ್. ವಿಜ್ವ್ಕ್ ವಿವಸ್ಬ್ಚ್ ಸಿ. ವಿ. ವಿ
This is totally unfair!! Why should I buy instruments for extra bucks when I am already subscribed for GeoShred Pro paid for all, you guys continuously innovative and push updates that’s awesome and appreciate the enhancements. Sadly now the so called “Pro”kit app is dummy, why I have to pay for instruments like individual or as bundles. Though I have “Pro” version subscription. Still need to buy those individual items from store.
After recent updates There has been issues such as GeoSwam instruments can only be performed through actual MIDI controllers…Pathetic after recent updates not able to use..Lost all the glory and charm of the app by recent updates.
#275 is great.
Superb sir, you are rocking
It was easy to catch up with the instructor when I took the class the second time. Still struggling with the finger changes while playing these rhymes. Thank you.
The best no other words
Western instruments are there, very less Indian instruments n sounds like toy. Just for kids. U don’t get violin, flute etc many instruments.Have to purchase again spending so much money not worth.
After buying pro I thought I would get to play at least one good instruments..most of the basic instruments are paid .. at least there should be a basic default instrument eg violin flute that we can first practice and the buy the geo ones
This is very good app ……I like it too much….
Excellent app for musicians
Cool instrument. Impressive.
Enjoyed the app since I bought it. Expressive playing is what I enjoyed even a lot. Must have app for upcoming musicians.
Have been enjoying GS ever since it was released. I am only an amateur; but this has given me hundreds of hours of joy already. Very affordable pricing model too. Hope to see more swam instruments like nadaswaram and harmonium.
Surely worth our time and money. A more detailed review to follow after I learn the app more and practice playing. I'm certainly enjoying playing and practicing on this.
Money for every single update
One of the best iPad apps ever for musicians, and the way I can express my ideas is outstanding. Very very intuitive, and enjoy playing with this app
Never thought I would buy this app one day. Amazing experience of shredding. Thanks a lot to the creator.
This app (Geoshred) is awesome, from the time I purchased this app till now it was working nicely. But after I downloaded GeoShred play, after some days, some GeoShred pro patches stopped working. After that,that is after this problem arised,I deleted Geosherd play and restore purchase,but it isn’t happening. There should be something to restore it ,you should have some option to restore it.This app is great for Indian instruments.
App crashing often while playing
An amazing instrument for musicians, GeoShred is a must for this generation.
I paid for the entire SWAM modelled instrument set but now I’m unable to restore my purchases. I get the error “Could not find any transactions. Try again later”.
Turns out the problem was that I had to restart my iPad, uninstall GeoShred, install it again and then restore purchases. Then it worked just fine.
I apologize for the comment the other day. It is a great app and my son enjoys playing it (Indian Classical only). The addition of SWAM modelled instruments has been awesome. Thank you GeoShred team!
Something which will change the way I enjoy music.
Love it. Highly Explorable..Enjoy Playing it..
It is just GREAT!
I don’t know how to thank you for this instrument. I am writing this from India and it suits wonderfully with our style of music.
Thanks a lot.
Something new something exiting
Dear Mr. Jordan Rudess,
It's really amazing. I liked this app very much.
Thanks for developing it very user friendly with an affordable price tag.
Mohan Ram Simpson
Feeling very happy.
Start learning Geoshred...
Wish to become a Music Enthusiast...
However, I request the developers to release a midi bridge to windows!!
I use both Mac and windows for composition. It’d be great to have support for windows as well!
Studiomux doesn’t seem to support anymore and their aren’t many supported apps to send midi info to Wins!!
Dear sir, This musical app is doing wonders in my musical journey. Gamakas in Indian classical music are able to play in GeoShred app Easily. Heartily I am grateful to GeoShred inventors taking all parameters of world music into consideration. Thank you once again to GeoShred inventors team. You can please add Shruthi box and Indian talas in this app. Tala has got choices of tabla, mridangam, khan jira, Ghatam, etc., Thank you very much.
This is an incredible stuff. A digital assist to explore your music self...
GeoShred is easy to learn and very expressive. meend and gamakas are easy to play.
Addition of SWAM audio modelling makes GeoShred awesome.
It’s an excellent instrument with superb expressions & articulations. Works best with swam plugins! ❣️
I have been using this beautiful musical app for more than a year. Very handy to perform during any getogethers along with Grangeband beats. The multitouch gives a beautiful flow from one note to the other note.some of the presets look
unique and gives a pleasant rendition... I have tried many free apps, it was a waste of time. I feel I could stick to this modern instrument, specialise myself and the time spent will be worthy enough. I wish good luck to the inventors and best wishes to continue their efforts in adding more features...
The app is excellent but saving an instrument that you made is not very clear. Just like any instrument you need a lot of practice.
Geoshred pro crashes after 4-5 seconds after playing specially in midi out configuration
I have purchased swam instruments still it doesn’t show in GeoShred.
I loved geoshred since its inception, and now i love it even more because of the swam sounds
Looks as if a musician needs nothing more! Awesomely effective and user friendly app.
The last update has completely shipwrecked the user experience because it keeps crashing while playing, and that has made the app unreliable. I've been using this app on my IPad Pro 9.7 inch, since 4 years and its the first time Geoshred has disappointed me.
I Request the developer to fix it ASAP so that no other musician gets embarrassed and ridiculed infront of their audience.
He is awesome as well as GeoShred, I am a violin professional, by accident got into GeoShred my life is peaceful and enjoying shredding with it. Thank u so much Jordon as well as Navneet.
Firstly thank you for developing such a wonderful app.
Recently bought this app and also the geoviolin in-app. It really sounds great.
Now the issue is: 2 adjacent notes produce the same tone.
Steps to reproduce : choose geoviolin and from the performance settings - > keyboard option, change scale by tapping on major/lonian and change it to indian - > Raga A- g -> Bairagi.
Now, test the notes B and C, and also F# and G. Both these sound the same. Am I missing something?
I purchased this app for 2000 + rupees with full version after update they asking again to pay for updated version (additional loop), really that is not fair. U people can do 1000+ updates that is doesn't matter, but we ppl purchased this app as full version. Then again why we need to pay for your additional updated loop. For new customer u can charge based on your updates that is doesn't matter but u people should have to give update to us without any additional charge that is the logic.
This is off course a great tool without an instrument. But so many tones are same sounds. Other sustaining sounds like flute, Saxofone, brass family could have made it an all round an better utility.
I expect in near future it will be added as updates. It will surely be a perfect GeoShred.
My 5th star will complete that day.
Overall its good as its the only app of its kind.
You wanna buy an instrument, and feel like living with it, that too virtually, that’s awesome.... here the online support team is a blessing for every music enthusiasts.... loved every aspect of this app.
Thanks to entire team who had made this app. It’s not just an app, but a new genre of musical instrument in itself. MIDI implementation is neatly done and very useful for playing Indian Classical tunes. Waiting for version 5.0.……
It feels like a real musical instrument.
Is there any option to slide vertically to change any other parameter like volume. It will be better if we slide up or down to adjust volume instead of striking another string above.
I found out about Geoshred today and just had to have it. I work with synth, symphonic, world and devotional music. I especially use many Indian scales and instruments. Geoshred has built-in Indian scales—hundreds of them—even with the correct intonations. And it works great with Logic Pro! The depth and expressiveness of the app is amazing. Not a kids’ toy: just like a ‘real’ instrument, it takes some practice to play well. Breaks new ground in musicality and ease of use. Not for everyone, perhaps, but if you need it, you need it bad. Highly recommended.
I have been using GeoShred for a couple of years now. It has been great. I love this app. It helps me make music on the go and also I have a virtual instrument ready to perform wherever I’m.
Playing GeoShred since 2-3 months now, it’s wonderfully made. Just that I m getting some pops or clicks like glitch while playing, I am using iPad 6th gen 9.7 inches, I would like to have a solution for it!
There less tutorials about the functions and varied applications
Even though it has a steep learning curve some more guidance is needed for the beginners.
Great app for Indian music. Has all the ragas inbuilt.
Would request you to change Indian Swaras according to the key note chosen. I think C is ‘translated’ to Sa when any note in fact can be Sa since the scale is relative. Please add changing of Sa to any note possible!
Also, I am unable to download the presets on the moforte website. On pressing the link, GeoShred opens but doesn’t load the preset
I really like this app. I wish you could add velocity sensitivity to it. Also if you can add a drum mod that would be amazing too.
There are issues with midi routing. There are drops in notes and delays while shifting from one note the other. This is also the case when using the arpeggiator, I hope this can be fixed soon.
I’m glad with this app. But there is no video available, on how to connect iPad with Mac to control kontakt or daw sounds to use as midi controller.
There should be tutorial available, unfortunately not able to find any!
I used to like this app very much. But since the latest update, this app is hanging and misbehaving on my iPad Pro 10.5”. Whenever I am trying to open it via “Inter-App Audio” of GarageBand it either fails to open or opens without any controls of GarageBand. Sometimes it starts playing any note continuously in the background while I am playing any music in this App.
Kindly resolve the issue at the earliest.
This one of the best apps or rather say the Only app or Electronic Musical instrument which has so vast features to tweak and customise.
wide range of keyboard configurations to play Indian Raagas is an added advantage to learn. Creating new keyboards is fun¡
Just curious to know , is there a way to change the musical instruments to other instruments like Flute or Saxophone etc directly in the iPad ¿
Jordan rudest !the wizard of electronic music is my soul inspiration..I will try my level best to produce some good music from this app..thanks to the entire GeoShred team..
I accidentally bought the pro version instead of the play version! I just wanted to try out this app. Now,they won’t even give me a refund!
Is there any email ID to communicate with the developer or some forum to discuss about this new instrument. I hve some doubts... Can I save root/scale which I made? Initially I was able to set backing tracks from iTunes but now I am not getting that option I am getting only an option to import into the folder.
Can some one help me out this...
I was assuming pairing with logic pro would be easy but it’s not. Purchased this app yesterday and so far even after spending so many hours, could not pair it with logic pro to record midi.
The president of this company has created many videos but in most of the videos he is just doing demo of the app. I would suggest to create some midi connectivity tutorials.
Also i was hoping it will have variety of instruments like flute, Violin etc. but couldn’t find them. Most of them are like sitar, guitar type instruments.
And too much effects in all instruments which I did not like personally. i wish if there could be a knob on main screen to control FX sends.
The sliding and touch response are the only things which i loved in this app.
My main intention behind buying this app was to pair it with logic and record midi however it’s not happening. i tried both via bluetooth and usb.
I would like to change rating if my issue is solved.
I installed it last month and exploring and playing madly the whole month. It brings the new hope in my music career.
Thanks for the wonderful new instrument.
The is extremely nice but the no. of sounds are less
But yet I liked this app worth purchasing it and it requires a lot practice to play songs in it
In just bought GeoShred and I am loving it. Requesting you to please create some Indian instruments sound like Sitar, Sarod,Banshuri . It would really be helpful for everyone.
Loved the product. Waiting for more skins and instrumental patch
I am facing latency issues when I am connecting with a bluetooth device
Device - iphone7
I cannot believe my ears when I listen to myself playing the awesome GeoShred instrument.. who said only guitarist can enjoy shredding... We also can..
Excellently designed with superb intuitiveness and expressiveness with a simplistic approach . Great tool for composers and arrangers both professional and amateur . Waiting for more sound libraries or integrality with Popular VSTs like KONTAKT etc. great demoes done by Jordan .
