For those who are after something in the professional realm, a new App called Shredder was released today…
SHREDDER, now available on the iTunes App Store. SHREDDER is a synthesizer/MIDI interface specially designed and developed for guitar players. It allows guitarists to play a true analogmodeling synth by simply plugging in – no special pickups needed! SHEDDER’s synth engine is a powerful, fully configurable FM/Subtractive design including:
• Dual oscillators
• Three custom-designed filters
• Three dedicated envelopes
• Dual LFOs
• Many more sonic features to empower the musician!
In addition, SHREDDER can also be used as a MIDI Out interface to control other Virtual MIDI compatible iOS devices, or hardware synths through a physical connection “SHREDDER is an amazing breakthrough for guitarists and all musicians,” says SHREDDER engineer and guitar veteran, James Yonac. “Now guitarists can get amazing synth sounds from their guitars without a special synth pickup and for a small fraction of the price of a hardware guitar synth.” SHREDDER reads guitar input through popular iPad guitar jack interfaces or from the iPad’s built in microphone. SHREDDER is available in the App Store for a limited-time introductory price of $5.99. The regular price of $14.99 will be effective starting January 14, 2012.
Yonac Software was founded in New York City in 2008. The company mainly focuses on the development of music and sound related software. In September 2008, Yonac released miniSynth, the first and most popular synthesizer available for the iPhone. Other bestselling
Yonac apps include miniSynth PRO, ORGAN+, Thereminator, and PitchBot.
