Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess has won first place in the recent Billboard Music App Awards for his "MorphWiz" synth program. Jordan, along with chief programmer Kevin Chartier won the award in the category of "Best Music Creation App."

Jordan Rudess commented on the award by saying:

"Receiving the Billboard Music Creation App award is incredibly rewarding. It's a direct message from the industry supporting my passion for the entire iPhone and iPad music app movement. Having MorphWiz receive industry acclaim is a strong statement and empowers me to continue my work, not only on my own music apps but with the creative app community in general. I'm finding out from people that what is important to them about MorphWiz is the fact that in addition to being a deep audio-visual music making experience with so many possibilities, it is also an experience that is really fun for anybody interested in playing with sound and visuals. My customers range from toddlers just putting their hands on the surface and hearing and seeing cool things, to the professional musician, who realizes that MorphWiz offers a next generation type musical control for their music making.

"While music apps out there try to mimic existing instruments, we designed MorphWiz from the start to harness modern mobile device technology to create a new musical instrument that is fresh, exciting, and remarkably expressive. It's rewarding for us to be able to offer MorphWiz to iOS products across the board! Whether you are on an Ipod 2nd generation, Iphone 3G, or an iPad, you can still enjoy MorphWiz and get a fantastic musical experience!"
