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!
What's New in Version 1.1
- added AudioBus 2 support
- added native iPhone 5 support
Could use some more features, but an excellent instrument
A simple but amazing instrument.
I would suggest giving it a few more features, such as:
1. Reverb settings
2. Keyboard view
3. More sounds
Audiobus support THANK U!
I love this app but was frustrated without audiobus support and was afraid this app was being orphaned. I am so glad for the update.
This is a wonderful sounding instrument with a really nice and intuitive interface. It's not as deep as other synths - but it's really easy to make great sounding synth leads with as well as cool sounding chords.
Explore the half circles to customize. Pick a scale root and scale type- then have at it.
On Ipad 2 - IOS 7, completely broken. It is not using the complete screen of the Ipad, only a portion of it, so it's impossible to play. Jordan, please tell your guys to fix this...
