Wizdom Music’s Tachyon Lets You Morph Between Sounds As You Play Polyphonically

Wizdom Music has released a new iOS app, Jordan Rudess and Kevin Chartier’s Tachyon, that lets you morph between two sounds, polyphonically.

Here’s what they have to say about Tachyon:

Most instruments only allow you to play one sound at a time, but with Tachyon, you can seamlessly blend between any two sounds as you slide your fingers up and down the screen.

The visual experience of Tachyon is just as mesmerizing. As you move along the playing surface, a field of twinkling stars morphs into the shape of your selected instrument, allowing a direct correlation between sight and sound.

“Tachyon is simple to use and at the same time offers a unique musical expressive power,” says Wizdom’s Jordan Rudess.

Tachyon is available now in the App Store for $1.99.

  1. I picked this up last night and have mixed feelings about it. Tachyon has a very serviceable UI and I applaud them for developing something an interface that clearly facilitates performing. On the other hand, it is a little bit boring. Nor do the sounds blow me away. Were I able to import my own samples, I believe this would be a must-have app. As it is, it’s cheap enough to try but it won’t get used much.
