This video captures Jordan Rudess‘s demo at the Windows 8 ”Build” Show. He kicks off with a prog synth jam, before moving on to demonstrations of his Wizdom music apps, MorphWiz & Tachyon, running on a 27″ Lenovo Windows 8 touchscreen computer.
The technical demos kick in around 9 minutes into the video.
Jordan Rudess posted this sneak preview of an upcoming iPad app from Wizdom Music, Tachyon.
Tachyon is designed to let you graphically morph between two sounds. The iPad surface is used as a multitouch XY interface, where the x-axis controls pitch and the y-axis controls the blend of two different sounds.
Pricing and availability are TBA.
Check out the demo and let us know what you think of Tachyon!
MorphWiz, the brain child of Dream Theater keyboardist, Jordan Rudess, and developer, Kevin Chartier, has been brought to Android as a preset synth, MorphWiz Play.
MorphWiz-Play takes the deep synthesis and immersive visuals of MorphWiz and packages it into 30 presets, programmed by Jordan Rudess.
?Our goal was to create an instrument that would allow the seamless morphing of the audio and visual domain while delivering a seamless musical experience,” explains Rudess. “I believe the multitouch platform opens up a whole new world of creation for electronic musical instruments. MorphWiz features a totally unique pitch control system that is still uncharted territory in today?s musical instrument world. This is the heart of MorphWiz.?
