Animoog released on the iPhone
Animoog, billed as the first professional synthesizer designed for the iPad and one of the apps used to create this awesome music video, has just releasedÂ for the iPhone. Packed with plenty of features and backed by Moog technology, Animoog lets musicians create a wide range of synthetic sounds.
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.
