** We're working on support for iOS 9 and iPhone 6s/6s Plus **
** This version of Animoog for iPhone is not fully compatible with the above yet. **

Must have iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4th gen. or later to run Animoog for iPhone.

Animoog is Moog Music's first professional synthesizer for iOS devices, and was the first music app in history to hit number one in the App Store on the day of release. Additionally, in the 2011 App Store Rewind, Apple named Animoog one of the best apps of the year.

Powered by Moog's new Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE), Animoog 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 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.

Key Features:

• Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE) - An exciting new Moog technology that allows the user to move dynamically through an X/Y space of unique timbres to create an expressive and constantly evolving soundscape.

• Timbre page – Assemble unique sounds in the X/Y space from timbres of a wide variety of vintage and modern Moog synthesizers and pedals. Note: this is NOT simple sample playback.

• Polyphonic Modulation - Simply slide your fingers to control multiple modulation parameters in Animoog right from the keys.

• Polyphonic Pitch Shifting - Easily manipulate the exact pitch of each note in a chord by rotating or sliding your fingers.

• Delay Module - A classic analog style ping pong delay.

• Thick Module - From bit crushing to unison voice detuning and drive, this module adds depth, edge and character to Animoog’s already massive sound palette.

• Moog Filter - The classic four-pole Moog ladder filter with High Pass, Low Pass and Band Pass modes.

• Record Module - Record your performance and overdub new layers, or play along live. Transfer recordings between Animoog and any other apps which support the general pasteboard.

• Path Module - Direct ASE through Animoog’s X/Y space to create new expressive and shifting sounds that will blow your mind!

• Orbit Module - Control the rate of orbit in the X/Y space around the path you created for subtle to insane voice manipulation.

• Flexible Modulation Matrix - Amp, Filter and Mod Envelopes, LFO with infinitely variable wave shapes and sync, and four super flexible and assignable modulation slots.

• MIDI in - Use your Little Phatty or any other MIDI controller to control Animoog.

(5★) Sooo good! Tons of fun - one of the best synth App
Ridiculously good / fun for cheap.

(2★) Not enough keys to make music with, but sounds goo
I have this for iPad and love it, but you only get one octave to play with and you can't expand the range like you can with the
iPad version.

Great with a Fiio adapter! Straight out of the DAC into a stereo splitter, into 2 line ins panned left/right. Sound quality is

(4★) Really great sound for the money
But when are they going to add the HOLD button for iPhone? Such a crucial, simple feature. It's a tiny button on the iPad version,
can't you just add it to the iPhone real quick?!

(5★) Moog Maxed Out !
My very favorite synthesis app, a lot of useful tweaks: all the scales (modes), presets as examples (InApp addOn), visualizer with
controller, et al, symbiotically offering that original "knobs-and-sl
(2★) Finally, an update!
Hopefully, iOS 8 support won't take years. Used to be the best, but Magellan is better in my opinion.

(4★) Cool synth
I was a little disappointed that the ability to use MIDI is a 4 IAP. That's a first. I hope the purchase transfers reading the
other reviews.
Dec 26, 2014
(3★) Awesome Sound and App but.
All the stuff I bought for the iPad version wasn't transferable to the iPhone platform. Maybe I'm missing something simple but
seems a little strange. Great app though. Couldn't live without.
Nov 05, 2014
(3★) I love the app
But I cannot download my bought packs to my new phone. Hence 3 stars
Oct 25, 2014
(5★) Fantastic, fun, educational, and MIDI!
I'm an app junkie and this is one of my favs. The kids love it. You can tweak sound like a real moog / analog synth. But unlike
other apps, it has a visual orbiter feature (so cool) and midi support (

(3★) Scale Lock Please
I'll give this a higher rating if you can update this with the scale lock functionality. It's so much easier to keep jamming on a
loop this way. Thanks.

(3★) Why less keys on iPhone5?
I love this app, but recently I got a used iPhone 5 and proceeded to install Animoog on it, but was disappointed to find that
despite the larger screen compared to my iPhone 4s, for some reason there

(5★) Simply the best
Animist is as good as it gets when it comes to analogue synthesizer sound in a digital package. Killer app!

Thanks for updating and finally giving Animoog for iPhone Audiobus support. The best is back! You are the legendary Moog Music.
Keep Animoog alive and well. Peace.

(4★) Finally updated, still a big issue
Fantastic to finally have such a great app updated after so long, but something big is missing (for me anyway). iPhone 5 screen
support is present, but the keys remain the same (still total of 9). The
(5★) Hurrah
Animoog, one of the best, just got better! Now with more vitamin A(udiobus).
(2★) Uhh.
Only 9 keys? The last version definitely let you use up to 10 trigger keys. You would think a wider screen would accommodate more
keys not less:(
Jul 16, 2014
(3★) Excellent music app
.but it needs Audiobus-compatibility. Now.
Apr 15, 2014

This App is only getting three stars because devoloper has not add much to increase ability for music production. A very simple
piano roll editor would help a lot. I only have an ipod, but would reall

(2★) Holding back iphone development on purpose
I think this app could be the best but holding back iaa and audiobuss to sell the more expensive ipad app is just not right. Moog

I just purchased this app and I love it but I was expecting it to be the same as the iPad update. This needs to be updated for the
iPhone 5.
Oct 26, 2013
(3★) Good News and Ugly News re Animoog
Animoog for the iPhone should be one of the best music apps, period. What’s holding it back is Moog’s unwillingness to bring
simple functionality like Audiobus support or Interapp audio connectivi

Jun 14, 2013
(3★) Wasted Potential
This is probably the best synthesizer app there is for the iPhone, but it can only be used as a toy. It needs audiobus support.
MIDI should not be DLC. The app itself is great. It just needs to catch

Would be 5 stars if not for the hefty price. Love the control of the expressive keyboard while also dragging in the oscilloscope

After studying synthesizers and making ambient music for a few years, I stumbled across this wonderful, unique app. It replicates
the style of old Moog synths, and truly acts as one. It is absolutely
May 12, 2012
(5★) Good fun.
Love this app. It is hours of fun to play around on. I do agree with others that workflow can be somewhat cumbersome. Just

This is a solid synth app! I am glad I only paid a buck for it when it first came out. I am sure I would have paid ten when Moog
