TC-Data is a MIDI and OSC (Open Sound Control) controller that sends messages to other apps and hardware. The app has over 300 multi-touch and device motion controllers and triggers which can be assigned to any MIDI or OSC message output. TC-Data is not a synthesizer, but it is designed to control them, plus any other MIDI or OSC software.
With TC-Data, you create your own interface to send the gestures and touch motions you choose. There are no sliders, knobs, or buttons. TC-Data directly connects your touch movements to the outputs you program.
Create MIDI notes, CC, pitch bend, patch change, and aftertouch messages with totally unique multi-touch controllers. Or send values directly to your program of choice via OSC, where you can build your own project using TC-Data as the front-end.

Ratings and Reviews
Look at all the controls! I haven’t had this app all that long but it is quite a bit of fun. I’ve spent more time creating patches than actually playing anything but ya know. Once you learn what things do a lot of possibilities open up. Overall it’s a great touch midi controller with pretty cool presets to start, but the fun and flexibility really opens up when you customize your own patches to suit your needs and playing style.
There are a few things that would make this app even better, the big one being audio bus midi support. Without it, it’s a hassle if you want to record anything into a DAW. Also it would be neat to be able to customize your own color themes because most of them available just aren’t appealing to me. Lastly if there were further options for layout on the multi patches that would be handy.
The Most Organic Playing Surface Yet
This is the MIDI playing surface I never knew I was missing until I got it. All the joy and fun of TC-11 with any MIDI sounds I have access to. The presets are fun, and once you get how it all works they're simple to tweak to create exactly the playing experience you want. Definitely read the manual and be ready to experiment. The payoff is a whole new iPad performance experience. You'll never want to go back to a boring old keyboard again.
I bought this app based on the claim it supports Audiobus. But Audiobus can’t find TC-data. It finds TC-11 but not data. Too bad otherwise it’s a great app, just rather useless for my workflow.
