Bit Shape have released version 1.3 of TC-11 – their full-featured multi-touch synth for the iPad. In addition to minor fixes and improvements, some significant new features are included.
Version 1.3 adds a new area to the Patch view: Options. These settings are patch-specific, and saved as part of your patch. You can ‘Suppress First Touch,’ which allows the first touch to be muted while still generating controller data. This allows ‘stretchy’ patches to ignore the unused touch so they can focus on the sound of the other voices.
Also new is the ability to create ‘Custom Grids’ for the patch. All three axis (X, Y, and radial) can be set to a specific number of divisions, and checkered for easy viewing. Users who create scales or divisions of the screen with the Sequencer will can now create a matching grid view for their patches.
The update also brings an interface overhaul to the work area of the app. The Load / Save, Patch, and Settings views have been re-imaged to match the synth object styling. A new, clearer font makes flying through parameter controllers easier on the eyes. In the Performance view, two controllers now have updated performance representations. Time-based controllers show an animated line shooting from one touch to another, and voiced rotation controllers show a large arc connecting the voice to its comparison touch.
TC-11 is a fully programmable, professional multi-touch synthesizer for the iPad. Choose from the 64 included presets, or build your own using touch controls, device motion, and on-board modules. Create music with the next evolution of synthesizer control!
