Jordan Rudess / Wizdom Music Release GEO Synthesizer App
Jordan Rudess, Dream Theater’s keyboard player, has released GEO Synthesizer, an iOS App that is the result of a collaboration with developer and co-conspirators Kevin Chartier and Mugician developer Rob Fielding.
GEO Synthesizer performs as both a synthesizer with four waves plus FM and effects, and it can be used as a MIDI controller either internally via Virtual MIDI ports in order to control other apps on the same iPad, or in the real word via iPad hardware out or MIDI over WIFI.
