MorphWiz is the result of the combination of Jordan Rudess, the keyboardist of Dream Teater, and Kevin Chartier, who developed the app so well that even Jordan uses it in his live shows with the heavy metal music band. It is suitable for users of every expertise: beginners will enjoy trying its presets, and professional musicians will find an amazing way to control sounds.

The digital audio workstation, or DAW, is a tool to record, mix, or refine audio files. It can either be an electronic device or a digital application.
Did you know that the first commercially-viable digital audio workstation was created in 1978? Music production was an expensive venture in the 1960s and 1970s since the hardware for recording and processing were not as affordable as they are today. But in 1978, audiophile company Soundstream created the Digital Editing System, a powerful but slightly affordable DEC PDP-11/60 minicomputer with a Digital Audio Processor software. It had a Braegen hard disk drive, an oscilloscope, and a video display terminal. In the late 1980s, DAWs became cheaper as more companies joined the market, with Yamaha, Apple, Atari, and Commodore putting out products that can process audio files.
Digidesign then opened the door for the software types of DAWs when they launched Pro Tools in 1989, prompting most major music producers to buy the product and use it as a software for their physical DAWs. Only in 1999 did a music producer created a full song using only the Pro Tools software, when Charles Dye and Desmond Child processed Ricky Martin's Livin' La Vida Loca. In a 2017 survey by AudioSkills, Pro Tools remain as the favorite DAW software, chosen by 30% of those who answered the survey, though Logic Pro (27%) and GarageBand (24) were not far behind.
