Jordan Rudess, keyboardist/Continuum for prog rock/metal icons DREAM THEATER, has announced his new (and second) App -- the MorphWiz from Wizdom Music. Created by Rudess with Kevin Chartier, MorphWiz is partly inspired by the success of the Haken Continuum Fingerboard -- a radically innovative and revolutionary MIDI instrument that Jordan uses on stage and in the studio with Dream Theater, who are now touring America with Iron Maiden through July 20. Like the Continuum, Jordan Rudess' MorphWiz is a vertical grid-based musical instrument that allows a whole new level of expressive control.
Jordan states, “Our goal was to create an instrument that would allow the seamless morphing of the audio and visual domain while delivering a seamless musical experience. I believe the iPhone/iPad multitouch platform opens up a whole new world of creation of electronic musical instruments and we’re proud MorphWiz is our first major offering. My experience and involvement with the Haken Continuum and extraordinary Bebot app brought to life an advanced pitch control system that is still uncharted territory for many in today’s music instrument world. This is the heart of MorphWiz.”
If you are a beginner, you’ll love experimenting with all of the presets, but if you’re a professional musician, you will soon be blown away by one of the coolest methods of controlling sound that you've ever laid hands on.
MorphWiz features over 70 custom Jordan Rudess-created patches that show off the power of MorphWiz.
