Animoog update – Moog Music’s classic synth app gets some further tweaks

Download from iTunes App Storeanimoog logoWhile iOS music apps have only been with us for a few years, I think there are still a number of candidates that still deserve to be given a ‘classic’ status. One of those is undoubtedly Moog Music’s Animoog. This iOS synth is available in both iPad (UK£22.99) and a streamlined iPhone version (UK£4.49) and, as a 35MB download, would find a home on even the most highly stuffed of iOS devices.

As I reported a few weeks ago, the iPad version had its first significant update in quite some time at the end of May. The iOS8 support was improved as was virtual MIDI handling and various functions within the 4-track recorder were tweaked and bugs squashed. Amongst a number of other things, the built-in manual was also been updated.

However, a further update  – v.2.2.5 – hit the App Store a couple of weeks ago and, in a very quick follow up, v.2.2.6 has arrived this morning. The latest update is pretty much just about stability and squashing a few bugs…  but that will, of course, still be very welcome to most users and it is always reassuring to see that development work is ongoing.

I suspect most long-standing iOS musicians may already have Animoog in their app collections but, if you have not, or if you are new to the whole wonderful world of iOS music apps, then this is a classic bit of iOS synthery. The sound is great and the virtual keyboard, while bringing something novel when it first appeared (and now much copied) is still one of the best available in any iOS music app. Not the cheapest app you might ever buy (at least, not the iPad version) but it does sound awesome :-)
