Bit Shape
iOS 7 Updates


Keep your eye out for iOS 7 compatibility updates to all three Bit Shape apps: TC-11, GyrOSC, and Invisible Drum Set. A lot of work has gone into ensuring that the apps will function on the new system.

TC-11 relies on 3rd party frameworks to provide the audio routing features Audiobus and AudioCopy. These developers have also worked hard to update those frameworks, but warn that there may still be issues in the transition. If you rely on your music apps, you may wish to wait until all the issues are resolved before updating from iOS 6.

Update: TC-11 1.8.1 is now available.
Update: GyrOSC 2.2 is now available.
Update: Invisible Drum Set 1.4 is now available.


TC-11 1.8 update adds Audiobus and more!


TC-11 1.8 is available now on the App Store. Version 1.8 adds support for the Audiobus audio routing system, variable voice polyphony, a brand new graphics engine, touch amplitude visualization, and gorgeous new colors.


Audiobus support lets you play TC-11 into dozens of other iOS filter and multitrack recording apps. Use TC-11 as the Input source in the Audiobus app (also available on the App Store) and run it through effects or as the record source in your preferred DAW.

A major reworking of the graphics engine means 60fps touch visualization, while also making more room for audio processing. iPad 1 users will see a marked improvement in drawing speeds. 34 fresh color sets are available to personalize TC-11′s unique display.


All iPad models will benefit from the variable polyphony setting. Newer models can easily run at the full 11 voice polyphony — one for every possible touch on the screen. iPad 1 users can maximize performance by dropping the polyphony to process only the voices that are needed.

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.
