MorphWiz from Wizdom Music, created by Jordan Rudess and Kevin Chartier.

\" Jordan\'s very capable use of his unique invention- MorphWiz must be a Godsend to his road crew.
It\'s important to note that no Moog synthesizers were harmed in its production.\"
Keith Emerson.

\"It\'s completely awesome and inspiring to play!
Absolutely loving it!\"
Eric Persing-Spectrasonics

MorphWiz is the second app to bear the Jordan Rudess name. MorphWiz, 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.
Like the Continuum, Jordan Rudess\' MorphWiz is a vertical grid based musical instrument that allows a whole new level of expressive control!

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.

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."
