There are no on-screen knobs, keys, or sliders to fiddle with; all synthesis is driven by your multi-touch performance. Touch relationships like distances / angles / timings perform all the controller functions. It's just you and the full screen multi-touch performance area.

EVERY synthesis parameter can be controlled by ANY multi-touch controller. The patch possibilities are limitless!


Use the iPad's accelerometer, gyroscope, and even the compass to attack your synthesis patch! Tilt and move the iPad to change any filter, effect, or module. You can create real vibrato by moving the iPad during performance, or change the speed of a sequencer by tilting forward and backward!


TC-11 has 8 voice polyphony for full, real-time synthesis. The audio engine has been highly optimized to deliver crisp, responsive performance. Choose from 22 oscillator waveforms, 3 oscillator types, 3 filter types, 4 unique effects, amplitude modulation, and panning control.

Fully programmable AHDSR, LFO, and sequencer modules make TC-11 the most capable iOS synthesizer in the world.

Use TC-11 in your band during live performances. Add TC-11 into your laptop orchestra. Experiment and create with the next evolution of synthesizer control!

What an iPad synthesiser interface should be

I've been astonished by this: it is almost the first (Jasuto might count as the first) app to really make good use of a tablet for what it actually is rather than as a sort of fancy TV screen on which you can draw pictures of older interfaces. It's doing for interfaces what the DX7 did for synthesis: now anyone who looks can see that there is a whole different approach to things, and anything else will seem old-fashioned.

I wrote the above a long time ago: nothing has changed my opinion. This is a little bit of a better future that never happened which has somehow leaked into the present. It's just brilliant.

Soundscape heaven

If it were possible to wear out a synth,then TC-11 is doomed 😊 A dream come true.

Too ahead of its time

Afraid so. And there's nothing to touch it. I agree completely with the other reviewer here, TC-11 makes use of the iPad interface as it should be used, not in the current trend, using sketch-morphism to imitate interfaces of old. This puts tc-11 in a whole new category of its own probably sharing more in common both design and sound wise with that of the EMS VCS3 or Buchla Electric Music Box. Of course it's way better than the former two 'has-been's' because the technology is both bang up to date, costs relatively little and runs on an iPad/iPhone. However and because of that, tc-11 will remain a niche product, simply because it's too ahead of its time. This of course can only be a good thing, as it places the instrument into an elitist synthesiser class that only a few will truly appreciate. Including me. And for that, tc-11 is worth every penny!
