 Yonac Software Releases SHREDDER – Synth for Guitar

Yonac creates the first professional iOS synthesizer designed for the guitar.

(Durham, NC – December 14, 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

• 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.
