Prog metal legend and Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess took home the 'Best Music Creation App' award at the Billboard Music App Awards Tuesday (Oct. 5) for MorphWiz, an app from Wisdom Music that turns the iPhone into a new instrument.

Conceived by Rudess, the quasi-3D synthesizer for iPhone made $40,000 in sales in the first month, allowing users to play outrageous space music, and utilizing the iPhone's tilt control. After playing a psychedelic rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", Rudess called the Apple line of products "the future of electronic music", and said he incorporates both iPads and iPhones into Dream Theater's live show.

MorphWiz beat out the LaDiDa singing assistance app, and the AmpliTube iRig: a piece of software that adds guitar effects, a tuner, and multiple presets to phones, turning them into a mobile studio with the help of a mic jack.
