Yonac Software has announced the release of SHREDDER, which they describe as the first professional iOS synthesizer designed for the guitar. It's 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 analog- modeling synth by simply plugging in – no special pickups needed! Yonac Software say that SHEDDER's synth engine is a powerful, fully configurable FM/Subtractive design including:
Three custom-designed filters
Three dedicated envelopes
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 engineer and guitar veteran, James Yonac, told us "SHREDDER is an amazing breakthrough for guitarists and all musicians. 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.
