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!

Hoping that my favourite app will be repaired

Please restore the inter-app audio and audiobus connectivity for Tachyon especially (and Morphwiz if possible), which went missing after the ios 11 upgrade. I doubt is was intentional. The transition when sliding between notes is unparalled by other imitation apps. Wizdom music apps are among the most expressive apps available.

Great app

Sound is great. Interface is cool. This guy only makes excellent apps, and nothing boring. All the apps are special.

Used to be great (Tachyon and Morphwiz

They still play great, but you can no longer record what you’re playing and that’s a pity, because in Audiobus (and even GarageBand), you could make some wicked stuff. Very sad.
