Must have iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 5th gen. or later to run Animoog for iPhone.

Animoog is Moog Music's first professional synthesizer for iOS devices, and was the first music app in history to hit number one in the App Store on the day of release. Additionally, in the 2011 App Store Rewind, Apple named Animoog one of the best apps of the year.

Powered by Moog's new Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE), Animoog allows you to move dynamically through an X/Y space of unique timbres to create a constantly evolving and expressive soundscape.

Animoog captures the vast sonic vocabulary of Moog synthesizers and applies it to the modern touch surface paradigm, enabling you to sculpt incredibly fluid and dynamic sounds that live, breathe, and evolve as you play them.

Visually captivating and sonically immersive, Animoog brings iPad based music production to the next level. Whether you are new to synthesis or a professional, Animoog’s unique user interface gives you the power to easily create a visually vibrant and sonically rich universe. It is the ultimate tool for total creative expression!

Animoog’s diverse library of timbres is derived from analog waveforms captured from classic Moog oscillators, both vintage and modern, and run through a boutique’s worth of high-end outboard and analog signal processors. These include modular synth panels, Moogerfooger pedals and more.

Animoog is the newest innovation in creative tools from Moog Music, the legendary electronic musical instrument company founded by Bob Moog in Asheville, NC.

** NOTE: Animoog for iPhone expansion packs can not be used with Animoog for iPad. **

Seabord by Roli

One of the musical apps i use often. Very permissive to play crazy sounds.
Recently i buyed a seabord controler from Roli. It support the midi but when connected on the Animoog it select the note subtain button and there is no way to switch it off... i just wish u could fix that bug to make i can use the controler with it.

Make this a universal app like everyone else...

I own a 3rd gen iPad and a 4th gen touch, had choice to either have a lower res app on both devices for 10$, or to pay 10$ extra to have the same interface, functionality except the keys are wider on the iphone version, and i prefer it that way. The iPad version was 19.99$ at the time i purchased the iPhone version, and it was not even mentioned to be on sale. It is 29,99$ now if you didn't see...

Good grief i wish my friends had bought it for me when it was $.99...

Battery killer

Great synth, but it keeps running in the background after you close it (even when not using AudioBus or inter-app audio). I played with it for 30 seconds and it ended up wasting 20% of my battery doing absolutely nothing. Make sure you force quit the app every time you close it. Minus 2 stars until it's fixed.
