SHREDDER for iPhone - Synth for Guitar

Yonac Inc.
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Introducing SHREDDER, the first professional iOS synthesizer built for your guitar: now custom designed for your iPhone and iPod Touch.

You control SHREDDER with your guitar. Simply plug in, hit the Guitar Synth button and start jamming. No special synth pickup needed: our revolutionary guitar tracking algorithms convert your guitar notes into synth notes.

SHREDDER's true analog-modeling synth engine is the culmination of our vast expertise on Digital Signal Processing on the iOS platform. With luscious dual-oscillator sound generators, custom designed 4-pole multi-mode resonant filter, dedicated FM envelope, dual dedicated LFOs, you are invited to tweak and relive the vibes of any decade of electrified music.

All the basic controls you need live or in the studio are grouped conveniently on the Main Panel. You can use the Guitar Mix fader to blend in your guitar with the SHREDDER synth, use the Gate Attack and Release knobs to find the "sweet spot" for guitar tracking.

Connect to SHREDDER with USB or in-jack guitar adapters compatible with your device, or even use the device's built-in mic as an input.

But SHREDDER doesn't just toot its own horn: It's also a MIDI interface for your guitar. You can use it to control other compatible virtual MIDI apps, MIDI devices, or even computer programs by just playing your guitar. With output that can simultaneously cover all the 16 MIDI channels and an easy to use in-app MIDI destination browser, you can start driving your favorite apps, synths, or drum machines right away.
