Moog have released an official Minimoog Model D iOS app. The Minimoog was the first ever portable synth released originally in 1970 and has been ported to iOS with some extra features including four-note polyphony, 160 presets, an arpeggiator and effects like ping pong delay and modulation effects. Given the nature of iOS, there’s also integrated MIDI control, iCloud backup, Ableton Link and inter-app audio support. It's available now priced at $4.99.
Moog have also introduced a shop-front to purchase thousands of more presets through the app. It’s not the first Minimoog clone to make its way to iOS, but it’s the only official one following on from Moog’s Model 15, Animoog, Filtatron apps. Moog have been in the news a lot recently, following Behringer’s hardware clone and Moog’s re-releasing their own legendary modular the IIIP.
