Animoog Pro Synth App for the iPad made by Moog

Can you imagine having a Moog on your iPad? well now there is Animoog, which is the first professional synthesizer designed for the iPad. It is powered by Moog’s new Anisotropic Synthesis Engine. It captures the vast library of sounds from the famous Moog synthesizers and applies it to the moderntouch surface paradigm,enabling anyone to quickly sculpt incredibly fluid and dynamic sounds that live, breathe, and evolve as you play them.

The good news is that if you are an iPad owner, you can currently purchase it at the incredible no-brainer price of 69 pence – yes that is what I said 69 pence or $0.99. The price will unfortunately rise to £20.99 after 30 days.

The heart of Animoog is Moog’s Anisotropic Synthesis Engine (ASE), a technology that has been in development at Moog for nearly six years. This looks an amazingly entertaining instrument that I am sure is going to be both fun and educational. There will be people who discover the joy of making music using a synthesizer through Animoog who might not have otherwise giving people a nearly-free opportunity to explore a truly inspirational creative tool.”

Key Features of the iPad Animoog App:

  • Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE) – A new Moog technology that allows the user to move dynamically through an X/Y space of unique timbres to create a constantly evolving soundscape.
  • Timbre page – Assemble unique sounds in the X/Y space from timbres of a wide variety of vintage and modern Moog synthesizers and pedals. Note: this is NOT simple sample playback.
  • Polyphonic Modulation – Slide your fingers to control multiple modulation parameters in Animoog right from the keys.
  • Polyphonic Pitch Shifting – Manipulate the exact pitch of each note in a chord by rotating or sliding your fingers.
  • Delay Module – A classic analog style ping pong delay.
  • Thick Module – From bit crushing to unison voice detuning and drive, this module adds depth, edge and character to Animoog’s sound palette.
  • Moog Filter – The classic four-pole Moog ladder filter with High Pass, Low Pass and Band Pass modes.
  • Record Module – Record your performance and overdub new layers, or play along live. Transfer recordings between Animoog and any other apps which support AudioCopy/AudioPaste
  • Path Module – Direct ASE through Animoog’s X/Y space to create new sounds.
  • Orbit Module – Control the rate of orbit in the X/Y space around the path you created for ‘subtle to insane’ voice manipulation.

  • MIDI in/out – Use any other MIDI controller to control Animoog.
