SHREDDER allows guitarists to play a true analog-modeling synth by simply plugging in – no special pickups needed!

Durham, NC (December 17, 2011) -- Yonac Software is pleased to announce the release of 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 analog-modeling 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

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.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.

Advanced

Beginner

• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
