Do you want to play an electric guitar and a piano at the same time? What about choosing the electrifying buzz of a drill and blending it into the soothing tone of a human voice? Jordan Rudess and Kevin Chartier’s Tachyon gives you all these options and more.
From the makers of the award winning app, MorphWiz, comes a new creation that allows images and sound to become one as they magically blend under your fingertips. Each note you play is an individual expression, allowing independent control of pitch and tone far beyond that of traditional instruments.
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.
As described by Jordan Rudess, “Tachyon is simple to use and at the same time offers a unique musical expressive power. The sonic core of the app is a custom crafted sound set from my personal library, encompassing sounds as familiar as those you would find in your home toolbox, and as exclusive as the ones I use on tour with Dream Theater."
Whether you’re a seasoned musician looking for a next generation instrument to further express your creativity, or just a regular Joe browsing the app store looking for a fun and simple purchase that will delight the whole family, Tachyon is the app for you!

Mr. Rudess is the wizard of music! While its not as customizable as the other amazing apps you offer, it gives control over notes in yet another intuitive and expressive way. The best commonality between all these apps are the ability to isolate keys and scales. Beautiful work gentlemen. I'll try to upload stuff at some point :D -B. Hasson
Good app but needs MPE.
Good app but needs MPE.
I would explain more in depth but other reviews can already explain it exhaustively.
Otherwise, MPE Midi seems sensible for more expression while playing on an device with force touch or an external device with such a capability. Especially when other apps made under the developer has MPE capability also.
4 stars - because while it still is a cool app released many moons ago, the app has had multiple updates and to survived the crossover to 64-bit - an omission like MPE seems odd.
This is one of my favorite music apps.. the only thing that could possibly make it better, would be midi.. I have 1 iPad dedicated to tachyon on my synthesizer stack.. incredible
