« TC-11 »

Innovation is brought to both the iOS and synthesis in general with this multi-touch modular. Rather than reinvent the wheel, TC-11 reinvents the axle the wheel spins on. Traditional synthesis methods are used here with imaginative new ways to shape the sound. The interface is futuristic/sci-fi, but also logical and consistent, making good use of the iPad screen real estate and the way we touch and move with it. The complexity available in here will be daunting to inexperienced synthesists, but anyone willing to test their mettle will find a worthy and worthwhile challenge in its seemingly infinite modulation and control options. See a full review here.

Disclosure: I received my copy for review from Bit Shape.

I give this one "Experimental" at best. Brilliant, complicated and for anything but noisy glitches, almost useless.
The only way to be melodic is to use the step sequencer which sort of defeats the purpose of a touch only interface.

"Essential: Just about everyone serious about iOS Music Making would benefit from owning this."

C'mon dude. Tc-11 is one of the most glorious/imaginative/beautiful apps in the store but a large swath of ios musicians would get very little benefit from owning this.
