UPDATED REVIEW: 5-2-13
This uniquely designed, and powerful synth continues to see excellent development. Now with Audiobus support, more colorful backgrounds, and variable polyphony up to 11!
TC-11 continues to impress, and should be installed on any sound lovers device.
Stable, beautiful, and deep. This is and always had been a fantastic synthesizer.
There have been loads of exciting new iOS synthesizers, but none have really strayed very far from being designed to mimic their real world counter part. As great as they are, none really take advantage of the iOS multi touch interface quite as ambitiously as TC-11 does.
Bit Shape brings us a remarkable new professional synthesizer with the TC-11, embracing the multi touch environment like few have attempted. Completely programmable, playable, wirelessly usable, and inspiring. With a variety of visual display options it’s also a visual delight. TC-11 also includes configurable accelerometer support.

Soon I was playing TC-11 like a futuristic instrument, sliding, tapping, shaking, and tilting as it responded fluidly to my input, just as I had programmed that patch to behave.
Recently Bit Shape improved TC-11 with some minor fixes, and major features. Most notable in my opinion was the addition of a 10 minute performance recording capability, and audio copy to move that recording to other compatible iOS music apps. Another improvement I found notable in my experience after the update was that the interface response to my input feels more seamless, and even a bit faster.
If you are like me and love creative design that is also highly capable while providing a solid quality experience, TC-11 should be on your list. This is a big leap forward in design. A madhouse of sonic possibilities at your touch. A legitimate live performance, or studio (on the go) instrument that challenges and inspires. Crafting a sound programmed to your liking is like sculpting sound and extremely satisfying.
