Wizdom Music LLC released GeoShred Control, a standalone MIDI controller using the GeoShred interface. This is for people who want the MIDI Polyphonic Expression, but without the full package. If at a later date you decide you do want the full GeoShred you can purchase that as an in-app upgrade for $15.
