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! “Check out Jordan Rudess’s new album with Steve Horelick entitled “interSonic”which features Wisdom Music Apps”



  • Good app but there’s a major bug

    By fiyafli
    I love this app and it’s a fantastic unique instrument? There’s a problem with this app however, whenever I try to launch it with Audiobus 2, it doesn’t want to open
  • Good app but needs MPE.

    By jack splash
    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.
  • I have had this forever

    By Banjul104
    And still use it.
  • It was not what I expected

    By DalienKeys
    it does not cost much but there are better apps at the same price and it no longer works in IOs 11
  • Could use some more features, but an excellent instrument

    By SlugShotSniper
    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
  • Excellent Instrument!

    By Tweakout321
    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
  • Audiobus support THANK U!

    By voodoo jew
    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. Thanks Wizdom!
  • Broken!

    By Silverquimera
    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...
  • Great sounds & fun to play

    By Base128
    Very, very easy to get great sounds out of this. Would like to see updates. Maybe to help support development offer in app purchases for the following : - Additional Instrument Packs - Ability to import SampleWiz sounds - Audiobus support Great product, please don't let it fade away.
  • makes iPhone worth keeping

    By nicluciano
    i keep my iPhone around for apps like this. this is first one I decided to rate, fwiw. - recording capability would be cool - some automation ability (or an arp) would be cool - configurable scales would be cool
