TC-Performer: Explore Touch Control


Introducing TC-Performer: multi-touch synthesis for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch!


TC-Performer is the universal little brother of TC-11. If you want to get lost in a world of touch synthesis, but are not ready to program your own patches, TC-Performer is the synth for you.

Each patch is a microcosm of sound to explore, and there are no keys, buttons, or sliders to get in your way. Players of all ages can explore every corner of the screen and devise their own ways of performing.

Introducing TC-Orbiter


Introducing TC-Orbiter: a new iPhone / iPod touch app that sends device motion to other Bit Shape synths as well as standard MIDI output. The little sister of TC-Data, TC-Orbiter is a controller used to manipulate other synthesizers.


TC-Orbiter supports MIDI out over a standard USB interface. It also supports Bluetooth LE connected to a supported Mac running OS X Yosemite. With very low latency and fast transmission rate, TC-Orbiter is a great gyroscope MIDI controller. Configure over 50 different device motion controllers and save your settings for quick MIDI configuration.


TC-11 2.0 Released!



Introducing TC-Data


Introducing TC-Data: a brand new iPad app that combines the creative multi-touch control of TC-11 with the power of MIDI and OSC (Open Sound Control). TC-Data is a controller that sends MIDI or OSC messages to other apps and devices. With TC-Data, you can build your own touch performance interface for any controllable synthesizer or application.


Choose from over 300 controllers and triggers when programming your patches. You can assign any multitouch, device motion, or built-in module to any parameter. How do you want to generate MIDI notes? What note numbers? Velocity values? It is entirely up to you with all parameters exposed to TC-Data’s interface.

Using TC-Data as a MIDI controller for music synthesis is only the beginning. The receiver can be whatever you choose. Check out the video for some other ways you can incorporate TC-Data into your projects.

TC-Data is designed to fit flexibly within many studio and connection configurations. Go wireless with data transmission over WiFi (or Bluetooth MIDI via 3rd party apps), or use a device compliant MIDI interface.

    • Inter-app control via CoreMIDI
    • OSC over Wi-Fi
    • Support for external MIDI interfaces
    • MIDI input passthrough
    • Virtual MIDI output
    • MIDI over Bluetooth via 3rd party apps
    • Compatible with any iPad running iOS 7.1


TC-Data helps you organize and access your patches with a new loading screen, where you can tag patches, create groups, or even AirDrop patches to nearby iPads. Customize everything from the color of the app, to touch polyphony, display options, and editing preferences.

GyrOSC: Version 2.1.1 Released


GyrOSC 2.1.1 fixes performance bugs for iPod Touch devices, and makes the magnetometer readout more reliable. It also adds support for the new 4″ screen size.

GyrOSC is a lightweight utility that sends your device’s motion sensors to any OSC (Open Sound Control) capable application over Wi-Fi. Wirelessly control your OSC capable audio or video app by moving and tilting your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.


Wirelessly send:

• Gyroscope {pitch, roll, yaw}
• Accelerometer {x-axis, y-axis, z-axis}
• Compass {magnetic heading}
• Rotation Matrix {m1 … m16}
• Rotation Rate {x-axis, y-axis, z-axis}
• Quaternion {w, x, y, z}
• Gravity {x-axis, y-axis, z-axis}
• Magnetic Field {x-axis, y-axis, z-axis}
• GPS {lat, lon, alt, course, speed, time}

GyrOSC will automatically detect the available sensors in your device.
