We teamed up with the developers at moForte and Wizdom Music to provide direct support for the jamstik+ in the latest version of their award-winning iOS app, GeoShred. This partnership is a great way for us to begin 2017. This year, we're committed to advancing and expanding our partnerships and app offerings available for our jamstik+ users. The compatibility with GeoShred is a major addition, allowing our players the most expressive and inspiring sounds available via MIDI. 

The latest release of GeoShred provides direct support with a built-in MIDI configuration specifically for the jamstik+. The Zivix team worked back and forth with the development team to ensure optimal performance and compatibility with the jamstik+, which will continue to be optimized in the future. 

The GeoShred app takes authentic guitar sounds in the digital world to an entirely new level, allowing the jamstik+ and a variety of other MIDI controllers to play and create with the highest quality, most realistic modeled guitar sounds available in the MIDI app market, with MIDI/MPE control. 

"The jamstik+ is an awesome way to experience the magic of GeoShred", says Wizdom Music President Jordan Rudess. “It's the perfect synergy of a physical and virtual musical instrument.”

“We see the jamstik+ as a powerful new way to play GeoShred” asserts moForte CTO Pat Scandalis. “With the jamstik+, players can strum and finger pick the sounds in GeoShred in ways which are not easy to do from the glass.”
