@AlexKinsella let us know that the awesome MorphWiz-Play app has come to the PlayBook. The best way I can think of describing the app is a futuristic synthesizer that will really stick with you. You can choose from the 30 custom presets and play around with them yourself with the multitouch interface. Here is how they describe the app:
MorphWiz, the brain child of Dream Theater keyboardist, Jordan Rudess, and award-winning developer, Kevin Chartier, took the music app business by storm, winning Billboard’s Best Music Creation App, the Best App Ever award for Best Music App, and an Electronic Musician Editor’s choice award. Jordan uses MorphWiz on stage and in the studio with his prog-metal band, Dream Theater. MorphWiz-Play takes the deep synthesis and immersive visuals of MorphWiz and packages it into 30 custom presets programmed personally by the Wizard himself, Jordan Rudess.
Check out how the app works in this demo video:
There are presets for:
- Dream Machine – Slide through dreamy whole tone scales as the MorphWiz galaxy spins around your visual waveform!
- Axis Of Love – Get physical with your device and move it all around to add cool FM synthesis and special FX to your sound.
- Morphtronics – become immersed in an expressive melodic world where the sound echoes all around you.
- Rush Analog – The classic analog filter sweep comes alive in this patch which we dedicate to the spirit of RUSH!
- Morph Talker – Let MorphWiz do the talking and do watch your language as you slide around on the playing surface!
- The Spirit Carries On – There is nothing like expressing a beautiful melody on MorphWiz and this patch i personally use to enjoy playing our Dream Theater song, entitled “Sprit Carries On.”
- C Blues Tilt – We provide the right scale and the sounds so all you do is have to rock out and remember to move your device around to bring out the cool raspy blues tones! Try turning off the Lock Pitch switch as well to get the slippery bends that you need to get deep into the Blues!
