Jordan Rudess — the keyboardist/Continuum-player/multi-instrumentalist for Grammy-nominated prog rock/metal icons DREAM THEATER, along with his company Wizdom Music, has launched new app called GeoShred that lets musicians create music on an iPad.

GeoShred features next generation physical modeling sound synthesis from moForte, enabling musicians to create mind bending guitar sounds and effects on an iPad

A fusion of Wizdom Music's Geo Synthesizer's user interface, and moForte's powerful modeled guitar and effects chain, GeoShred is an innovative instrument that lets musicians create music on an iPad with highly advanced, expressive physical modeling synthesis. GeoShred lets you achieve realistic guitar sounds, and also bend, stretch and manipulate the sound into endless possibilities. You can explore, edit and control the mechanics of a guitar model - solid or hollow body, nylon or metal strings, pick position, harmonics and much more. GeoShred's unique, responsive user interface for performance and extensive sound design enables you to directly control dozens of model parameters and effects.

GeoShred features Include:

* Physically modeled guitar sound with highly expressive playing surface
* Modeled feedback, finger vibrato, slides, intelligent pitch and octave rounding
* Extensive editing capabilities and customizable control surface
* Multiple Modeled "pedalboard" effects
* Arpeggiator, auto-interval and guitar style alternate tuning support
* Supports Inter-App Audio, Audiobus and Air Turn

"We've designed GeoShred to give you unprecedented control of the most powerful guitar physical model ever developed," says Dr. Julius O. Smith III. "The GeoShred sound engine is the culmination of over 30 years' research and development in the art of physical modeling synthesis. GeoShred puts next generation physical modeling at your fingertips."

"GeoShred's unique, responsive user interface for performance and extensive sound design enable you to directly control dozens of model parameters and effects," says Denis Labrecque, marketing consultant, moForte. "With GeoShred, you have the power to make music that comes alive with expression - realistic controllable feedback, finger vibratos, note slides, power chords, auto-arpeggios and much, much more."

Jordan Rudess' Wizdom Music also created the top-selling synth-app MorphWiz, which won first place in the category of "Best Music Creation App" in the 2010 Billboard Music App Awards, "Best Musical App" in the Best App Ever Awards and best "iPhone/iPad/iTouch" app in the Electronic Musician's 2011 Editor's Choice Awards. In addition to MorphWiz, Wizdom Music has also released the popular music apps HarmonyWiz, SampleWiz, GeoSynth, Jordan Rudess Explores, EarWizard, SpaceWiz and Tachyon.
