Animoog

A new Moog synthesizer is here. The Animoog for iPad looks nice, has an X/Y Pad, a “Notes Follow on Screen” function (see video above), Rates & Orbits LFOs, touch keyboard with individual and polyphonic articulation, custom key scales, envelopes you can touch to adjust and more. In my fantasy brain I would have liked a true polyphonic hardware Moog with no controls on it; just a dock for an iPad and some Moog control software. That said, Moog is going what makes sense I think. You have to be in it to win it as they say and touch interface is something they need to cut there teeth on. At a .99 intro rate it also let’s everyone into the Moog world. The bottom line is it’s one of the better pro-audio apps for iOS and a creative tool in the hands of an artist.
