Model 15 update – Moog quick off the mark with first tweaks for their brilliant modular iOS synth app

I posted a full review of Moog's Model 15 iOS modular synth app just a few days ago. Moog don't do lots of iOS music apps but those they have released have certainly made an impact. In Animoog, which was first released on the App Store in November 2011 and now stands at v.2.3.5, they created one of the most authentic, analog-sounding, iOS synths to date and, with their innovative use of a virtual keyboard, paved the way for other developers to re-imagine what a touchscreen could offer when … [Read more...]

Model 15 review – Moog brilliantly recreate their classic modular synth as an iOS music app

As I posted a few days ago, Moog launched their new Model 15 modular synth iOS music app this week. If you know anything about the history of analog synths, then you will be familiar with Moog’s prominent place in that story; they built some of the most iconic hardware synths ever made…. and, thankfully, the company is still doing just that. However, they are also a company that, from the outside at least, do seem to move with the times. They have also embraced software synthesis and this … [Read more...]

Model 15 launched – Moog recreate their modular synth as an iOS music app

There are certain music technology names that not only define certain sectors of the market but that are also brands that have reached the wider world consciousness.

Moog are not, however, a company stuck in their classic heritage and they have embraced software synthesis fully. That has included iOS and, in iOS terms, they are also responsible for one of the synth apps … [Read more...]

SunVox updated – Alexander Zolotov’s modular synth gets some tweaks

I've commented here before that it can be quite a challenge to keep up with every interesting development in iOS music technology...  and, as a consequence, there are quite a number of iOS music apps that, for one reason to another, I've never quite got around to giving any coverage too here. One such as is SunVox by Alexander Zolotov..... SunVox has been around on the App Store since October 2009 - way before the Music App Blog even became the nub of an idea in my head - but has received … [Read more...]

AnalogKit sale – modular synth environment for iOS from Bitcount Ltd gets bargain price

As I’ve commented many times before, if there is one category of iOS music apps that is well stocked to the point of overflowing then it’s the synth category. And, if you are anything like me (that is, a bit of an iOS music app addict), I suspect your iPad or iPhone is already well populated in this regard. Of course, there are ‘synths’ and there are ‘synths’ and while iOS has preset-ready synths and fully programmable synths, if you are really into the DIY-brand of synth sound creation, then … [Read more...]
