iMini is compatible with iPAD 2, iPAD 3 and IPAD Mini. iMini now supports iOS 7 and Apple's new InterApp Audio.
iMini is a recreation of the classic 1971 Minimoog™ synthesizer, one of most iconic synthesizers of all time.
Based on the TAE® technology found in our award winning Mini V software, iMini offers a level of sound quality never before found on the iPAD as well as over 500 sounds by leading sound designers.
We have also partnered with the Bob Moog Foundation so that a portion of each sale goes to support their work in music education via the Dr. Bob Sound school program, making available the archives of Dr. Bob Moog and funding the dream to build the Moogseum.
The Minimoog™ synthesizer was made famous by artists and bands such as Stevie Wonder, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Keith Emerson, Devo, Jean Michel Jarre and more. We now bring the features and sound of this classic to the iOS platform.
The iMini not only recreates the look and feel of the most legendary synthesizer, it does it with unparalleled sound quality. iMini is based on the award winning Arturia Mini V software that was created in partnership with Dr. Robert Moog himself, back in 2003. Thanks to this heritage, continuous research and refinements over the years, iMini comes with amazing sound quality and a large collection of preset sounds created by top sound designers such as Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream) and Geoff Downes (Asia).
What will you do with it?
First you can play the iMini’s numerous sounds from the iPad keyboard. You can create your own sounds and start building your personal sound palette.
If you are an owner of the Arturia Mini V software on your Mac or PC, you can import and export sounds between your laptop or desktop Mini V and iMini.
You can also control iMini from a MIDI keyboard via CoreMIDI and integrate it into your studio or live performances.
But this is not all; iMini is ‘Tabletop Ready’. Tabletop is a free iPad application that allows you to integrate iMini into a full studio of devices. With Tabletop you can build an entire song, with drum machines, FX's, sequencers... and of course the inimitable Minimoog™ sound.
The connect page is also your avenue to open up a whole new world of possibilities with iMini via Retronyms Tabletop application.
Tabletop™ is a free app for your iPAD that allows you to integrate iMini into a complete studio environment. In Tabletop you can use multiple instances of iMini; record your performance into a real-time sequencer; automate any of the parameters; add effects; process other modules through the iMini filters, etc. Tabletop also features number of in app purchase options to add more effects and instruments from other 3rd party companies.

What's New in Version 1.3
Added support for iOS 5
The minimoog V Original now in iOS.
Well, I was quite happy to see one of the most authentic softsynth companies get into the iOS world.
At first glance it is quite familiar (if you have the minimoog V Original in your PC/Mac, the VST) you'll be able to navigate quite easily in it.
The sound patches are also taken from the VST version and it is quite robust, you'll be able to find pretty decent sounds. The joy will come as you start tweaking by yourself and making your own patches, man! It sounds so good you'll be hard pressed to find one that sounds so authentic.
One of the reasons I got this is because it is Tabletop ready as that platform REALLY needed a new synth to spice things up. I also got it because of the donation to the Moog Foundation.
Midi support, Tabletop ready, Audiocopy, IAA, exchange patches from the desktop to the app and viceversa. It is all there!
Thanks Arturia, welcome to the iOS realm and please do drop by with more of your great emulations.
Sounds great, weak MIDI implementation
This app really does sound like a Moog.
Its MIDI implementation is weak:it ignores the keyboard's mod wheel, and you can only assign one knob at a time. I've heard several reports of notes that won't stop, once they've been struck, but I don't actually play it enough to confirm this myself. Before you buy, read the other reviews. Contrary to what some of the reviews say, it _does_ have Audiobus support.
In summary: this app has a five-star sound engine, but the port to iOS is a three. Certainly worth $10, but might not be reliable enough to use live. Arturia's other synth app, iSEM, was handled by a different developer and is much more robust.
If you read the reviews, you'll see that customers have been commenting on this for some time. The latest version does nothing to fix it.
Some unpleasant digital distortion...update...Still no good.
Something happened with the last update...ugly digital distortion especially with poly-mode. The stronger the delay effect, the worse the distortion. This is quite unnerving as this used to be one of my top five fave synth apps when the sound was so clear and PHATT. It is unusable now. I am going to try to delete the app and reboot to see if that might fix it...otherwise I'll delete it for good to make room for some more usable music making apps. Fingers crossed that this works...
Bummer. Still ugly sounds. Yes, I've tried airplane mode, Bluetooth is off, and all other apps are closed. The sound is simply too loud and it overdrives the iPad2's internal preamp before sound goes to the headphones. I'm looking for a latency control or a buffering parameter, but no luck. I'll keep iMini long enough for this review to post then delete the app. I will however keep an eye on the forum for another update. Hope they fix it.
