‘An Evening with Hindole Majumdar and Kevin Schlei’ was a concert on August 19th, 2012 that explored electronics + tabla. This piece, ‘Idiom,’ is a fully improvised, on-the-spot composition by myself and Hindole. A basic rhythmic pattern forms that he and I use to ground ourselves, and we play off of each other’s accents and phrases.
I am using my iPad instrument TC-11 with three iPads, and Hindole is playing his D tabla set with an extra E dayan. You can find more information about Hindole at his website, sites.google.com/site/hindolemajumdar/, and about TC-11 at bitshapesoftware.com/instruments/tc-11
TC-11 is the only fully programmable, professional multi-touch synthesizer for the iPad. Choose from the 96 included presets, or build your own using touch controls, device motion, and on-board modules. Create music with the next evolution of synthesizer control!
iDesignSound App of the Week 12.17.2011
“This thing is ALIVE! TC-11 is really fascinating and I’m having some fun experimenting with it. It is very, very cool!”
- Jordan Rudess, keyboardist, Dream Theater
“TC-11 is making my jaw drop every few minutes; realizing new and increasingly complex routing options. Rating: Essential.”
- Tim Webb, discchord.com
“Creating, routing, configuring, and general tweaking is unbelievably robust and complex. This is a big leap forward in design. A madhouse of sonic possibilities at your touch.”
- David Israel, smitematter.com

There are no on-screen knobs, keys, or sliders to fiddle with; all synthesis is driven by your multi-touch performance. Touch relationships like distances / angles / timings perform all the controller functions. It’s just you and the full screen multi-touch performance area.
EVERY synthesis parameter can be controlled by ANY multi-touch controller. The patch possibilities are limitless!
DEVICE MOTION CONTROL:
Use the iPad’s accelerometer, gyroscope, and even the compass to attack your synthesis patch! Tilt and move the iPad to change any filter, effect, or module. You can create real vibrato by moving the iPad during performance, or change the speed of a sequencer by tilting forward and backward!
TC-11 has 8 voice polyphony for full, real-time synthesis. The audio engine has been highly optimized to deliver crisp, responsive performance. Choose from 22 oscillator waveforms, 3 oscillator types, 3 filter types, 4 unique effects, amplitude modulation, and panning control.
Fully programmable AHDSR, LFO, and sequencer modules make TC-11 the most capable iOS synthesizer in the world.
Use TC-11 in your band during live performances. Add TC-11 into your laptop orchestra. Experiment and create with the next evolution of synthesizer control!

Time’s are changing – recently DJs had a pretty nice travel set, a couple of USBs and some DJ decks, now deadmau5 shows perhaps the future of DJ-ing on stage.
Deadmau5′s new live touchscreen setup @ Veld Music festival.
This tutorial looks at the basics of sequencer programming in TC-11. Starting with a non-pitched patch, we insert a sequencer to quantize the frequency to note values. Two approaches are taken: building a specific scale, and using the Add parameter to quickly fly through a note scale.
TC-11 is a programmable modular synthesizer on the iPad, controlled by multi-touch and device motion controllers. All synthesis parameters can be controlled by these two sources, which allows the user to create countless unique patch configurations.
TC-11 does not use on-screen objects like knobs or buttons for synthesis control. Instead, your touches are the controllers. Distances, angles, rotation, speeds, and timings created by the touches are used to push synthesis parameters in real-time. TC-11 opens up every inch of the screen for performance. Plus, the iPad’s device motion capabilities can be used as controllers. The accelerometer, gyroscope and compass can be assigned to synthesis parameters to turn your iPad into a expressive motion-controlled synth.

Intuitive synthesizer using four multitouch points on the screen and the accelerometer to give a large amount of control over a sine wave output.
Orange – Volume and Pitch (radius control pitch range)
Pink – Ramp speed and note length
Blue – Delay Length and Pitch (hold down for delay)
Green – Delay Filter and Feedback
Accelerometer controls pitch and wave shape.
