Animoog, powered by the new Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE), is Moog Music's first professional polyphonic synthesizer designed exclusively for the iPad. ASE 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 quickly 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: IF NO SOUND from iPad speaker but headphone is working, this is an iPad settings issue. Go to the Settings app, General tab, set "Use Side Switch to: Mute" then turn switch on side of iPad on (Mute) and off again (Unmute). Then set "Use Side Switch to: Lock Rotation" to prevent problem in future. **

What's New in Version 2.2.8
• Added support for AudioBus Remote with triggers for Recorder, Preset Navigation, Scale Lock, Hold and Orbit Time Change
• Added support for mixing down to AudioCopy and AudioShare in the 4-track recorder
• Stability improvements
Animoog is great. It stood the test of time, about 2 years and 30 synth apps later and this thing still amazes. It's also the most expressive one. Thanks for all the updates.
Sounds great and very expressive but the unstable sound engine, especially when trying to record, makes it useless:
Trying to record at 48khz causes massive distortion (works fine in all other synths I have). I now discovered this has been a known issue since at least 2014.
Triggering via midi from Beatmaker works but again sometimes the animoog sound engine gets confused and all sounds become corrupt.
Having paid for the midi in-app purchase as well as the initial cost, I'm feeling pretty ripped off.
All this on an iPad air2.
Don’t often wax lyrical about an App but this one is more than worthy of mention. There are plenty ‘Instrument/sound‘ Apps that are available under the $5 mark that sound good and are easy to use. – So when a vendor is charging $30 (£19 UK) for this one you really want to make sure it’s worth the premium price and going to deliver. Headed to YOUTUBE – watched the Tutorials etc. – and decided to take the plunge. I am not disappointed. Having a world class pedigree is not always a good sign but in this case it shows through in droves. This is both a mighty fine toy and a serious instrument – it has the same heart as the $150,000 Moog Series III Modular – the same sonic clarity long associated with the Moog name and yes it has the same quirkiness. There are so many fascinating features – I am looking forward to exploring more as the weeks pass. My favourite feature (so far) is the Keyboard Scale Selector – not only can I micro tune and map the modal tonality – I can switch off individual notes meaning I can truly emulate the playing restrictions of any instrument - Celtic-Indian-Arabic you name it.
