This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The Moog Model 15 App is the first Moog modular synthesizer and synthesis educational tool created exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Each facet of the Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer has been meticulously recreated in this application to ensure the power and transcendent sound quality of each module remains intact. The character, harmonic complexity and mystique of the Moog Model 15’s modules, from the legendary Moog 921–series oscillators and 904A Low Pass Filter, to the coveted 907 Fixed Filter Bank have been painstakingly preserved.
In order to develop the most immersive and expressive modular interface possible, the Model 15 App has been designed utilizing Apple’s new Metal advanced graphics engine. This ensures that all zooming, panning and modular patching throughout the application feels completely natural, something that would have been impossible otherwise.
The Model 15 App features both monophonic and 4-voice polyphonic operation is easily commanded via 4 seamlessly integrated controllers. Simple swipes and taps provide instant access to a traditional Moog keyboard, 1150 ribbon controller, 8-step sequencing arpeggiator and the award-winning Animoog keyboard with 22 built-in scales and polyphonic modulation capabilities.
Also included are extended features which expand the capabilities of the app beyond the traditional offerings of the hardware Moog Model 15. These include total MIDI integration, assignment for external control, use as a MIDI controller, dedicated Audio Bridge and MIDI Bridge modules, looping recorder module with overdubbing, a master ping-pong delay module and a new extension cabinet that includes additional amplifiers and voltage-controlled reversible attenuators that can be used for effects like ring-modulation.
Because the Model 15 App utilizes Apple’s Metal technology, only 64-bit devices are supported. Compatible devices include iPhone 5s or newer, iPod touch 6 or newer, iPad Air or newer, and the iPad Pro.
The Model 15 App requires iOS version 9.3 or later to work.

You'll need a 12.9 iPad Pro and external keyboard
So this synth sounds great. And the skeuomorphic design looks good. It's just a UI that is not user friendly on a regular sized iPad. With the keyboard loaded the synth area is far less than half the screen. The labels are very small, and there is a lot of continual zooming and unzooming and panning required. And also there is a lot of loading and unloading of the keyboard to test the sound if an external keyboard isn't available. If I was already familiar with the interface from using an actual Model 15, then it might be okay (and surely not many of us will have had that chance). But to learn how to patch as I go is a real pain. As is trying to analyze how preset patches are put together. At the very least I would suggest updating with the option of a smaller keyboard, one that doesn't take up a third of the screen. Or more so an alternative digital interface that fits on the screen and functions more simply. Being a slave to the original look, while kind of a novelty, is just not that functional. And I am growing fatigued of this before I have even begun to learn how to program it.
Many sounds on this are better than what I can get on my collection of real analogs
The title says it all. This has a lot of what real analog has, texture, 3D dimensionality, and it's very musical and it's what the ear expects to hear, the way I would expect a Moog to be. For how much this delivers, the price is a practically giving away the Moog tone. I have a Minitaur which is very, very good in terms of giving the highest quality that real analog can sound, and I have a Werkstatt. Again a very analog sounding analog. This software for many sounds is on par with those, not all timbres when the three are simultaneously compared, but there's many patches in this modular software I would use over those. That says a lot since those two real a
Moog analogs are some of the most analog analogs I've used.
This is the absolute best sounding analog modeling synthesizer on the App Store hands-down. I have all of the big ones and this is the only one that has surpassed the Arturia iSEM which was and still is my favorite. It's still my favorite because of its interface. It's the best. But as far as sound quality and authenticity goes the Moog model 15 is the unequivocal winner. The filters, the effects, the oscillators, they are all spot on and second to none. Nobody can do this like Moog. Buy this app. Work this good deserves your patronage. They work hard, have good hearts, and that's why their stuff is so good.
