iShred LIVE is a free mobile app with amp modeling and stomp box effects for guitar, bass and other instruments. Based on the virtual guitar app from Frontier Design Group, iShred LIVE gives musicians of all skill levels the ability to play a real instrument through their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app opens to reveal a sight familiar to most musicians: an amp and pedalboard with life-like effects pedals. The built-in amp simulator features clean and overdrive settings for added tonal color. Each pedal features fully adjustable controls for accurate reproductions of classic guitar tones. Just tap the controls and iShred LIVE zooms in on the effect for easy manipulation. The first three effects are included for free with download of iShred LIVE are HK-2000 Digital Delay (with tap tempo), Q-36 Space Modulator/Flanger and Buzz Kill (noise gate).
Players looking for added tonal flexibility can download these additional effects through in-app purchase: Hot Fuzz (super fuzz pedal), Sybil (dual chorus), Trembler (variable waveform tremolo), Adrenaline (adjustable treble booster) and Kömpressör (compressor pedal).
Favorite sounds can be saved in one of 48 user-programmable presets, organized as eight color-coded banks for easy organization. A chromatic tuner allows quick and accurate tuning; the adjustable metronome includes tap tempo and selectable accent sounds. The app also features a looping audio player.
