This is the first time Jordan Rudess, best known as the keyboardist for Dream Theater, has released a complete set of his exclusive sounds to the public. Jordantron will turn your iPad into the grandest and most epic sounding instrument ever!

Developed for Wizdom Music by Omenie, UK-based mellotron specialists, Jordantron features :

  • 57 sampled stereo instruments, 940MB of samples
  • 4 octave samples per voice, 6 playable octaves
  • Voices categorized by ‘velocity sensitive’, ‘leads’, ‘orchestral / choral’, ‘pads’ and ‘strings’
  • Velocity sensitivity on selected voices
  • Decay tails on selected voices
  • Octave shift keys to extend range of on-screen keyboard
  • ‘Half-speed’ tape mode
  • 12 programmable chord pads
  • Warm, lush stereo reverb
  • 32 ‘VOICEBANKs’ holding voice, reverb and ABC blend settings for instant retrieval
  • Giant ‘Jordan-style’ whole octave divebombs (configurable as whole tone or whole octave downshift)
  • Support for multiple simultaneous instruments via MIDI
  • ‘Oscillotron’ waveform display

First and foremost, this is a giant sample collection wrapped in its own playable instrument, designed for live and studio use with MIDI control. Jordantron allows its two internal Tron engines to be controlled by a pair of external class-compliant MIDI keyboards for maximum performance flexibility, one controlling the blendable ‘ABCtron’, the other controlling the ‘Dtron’ which is usually dedicated to chord pads. A flexible MIDI response allows VOICEBANKs to be retrieved using MIDI Program Change, so the iPad screen never needs to be touched during performance.

Supports AudioBus 2 and Inter-App Audio.

Jordantron costs $9.99.
