It does more than that, it morphs from one algorithm to another.
It's possible to capture a sound, and morph it to something different,
although it takes a bit of RTM, and doesn't achieve what we're aiming for

I think Kyma is/was capable of morphing one sustained sound into another.
I'm sure I heard it on a TV ad a few years back, but as one end
of the morph was a synth it wasn't impressive.

It does if you take FFT (Fourier Transform).

It could work with a sustained tone of one instrument morphing into that 
of another
that was playing the same note.

I bet it's possible with digital editing to gradually transform one sound 
another, but the problem is deciding what ought to happen in the middle.
