As reported on yesterday Moog is bringing Animoog to BlackBerry 10, here’s a video run through:
Next up on our BlackBerry Live 2013 stage is Moog. they’re bringing a high-quality synthesizer app to BlackBerry 10 geared towards professional and avid amateur musicians alike. The vast majority of the music jargon was well over my head, so let’s let the official app feature list do the talking.
- 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 that support Copy/Paste
- 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/out – Use your Little Phatty or any other MIDI controller to control Animoog.
When Animoog launches in the next couple of weeks, it will be available for $0.99 for a limited time, then get bumped up to a $9.99 regular price. This is pretty awesome, considering an actual dedicated device that does this kind of synthesizer costs more than a BlackBerry Z10 would
Animoog is the first creative tool for the BB10 platform from Moog Music, the legendary electronic musical instrument company founded by Bob Moog in Asheville, NC.
Powered by Moog’s Anisotropic Synthesis Engine, Animoog allows you to move dynamically through an X/Y space of unique timbres. This creates a constantly evolving and expressive soundscape that is unlike any other musical instrument.

Blackberry has announced that Moog is now official on the BB10 platform
Amongst the flurry of announcements this morning at BlackBerry Live in Orlando, CEO Thorsten Heins finally made good on an app promise from this past January. Yes, Skype is now available on the Z10. Users that want to make VoIP calls will have to upgrade to the latest iteration of the platform, BB10.1, in order to download the preview from BB World. Additionally, Heins also told attendees that Moog will be bringing its synthesizer app Animoog, previously exclusive to iOS, to the BB10 platform starting today. So, slowly, but steadily BlackBerry’s following through on its vision to make BB10 a robust developer-friendly OS.

“I have to admit that Animoog is becoming one of my favorite iSynths (besides WaveGenerator): you can obtain deep, warm, analog sounds, with a complex structure.
This video may be unsynchronized with audio on same parts.
Thank you for watching!”
Just a quick video on how to crreate cool drum and bass beats with iOS apps. Drums: GlitchBreaks and DM1, Bass: Magellan (2 instances), FX – Animoog, DAW – Cubasis.
iPad mini is used. The sound of animoog is sent to CUBASIS through LIVE FX. AudioBus is convenient. It is splendid.
This is a live improvised analog modular synth composition featuring the Animoog (Iphone App) patched into the Make Noise MATHS module This sound exploration is a glimpse of what my live shows are like. This song will be featured on my up coming limited edition vinyl release that shall remain nameless for the time being.
A quick tune with Animoog and The Grateful Dead Expansion
The Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, who visited the Moog Factory on April 19, 2012 to test the development of the Grateful Dead Expansion Pack exclaimed, “Holy transmogrifica-tion, Batman… Amazing!” after hearing the Grateful Dead’s 44-year-old recordings trans-formed into sound design tools for artists.
The Grateful Dead Expansion Pack comes on the heels of Moog’s release of Animoog V2 on December 21, 2012. Animoog V2 is free for existing Animoog users. It includes many user requested features and product enhancements, such as: accelerometer integration which gives Animoog owners the ability to tilt their iPad in any direction as an interactive 3D modulation source; note hold and scale lock, and tools for advanced users like, Load/Save MIDI CC maps, Audiocopy/Audiopaste integration and support for the new Audiobus platform. Also, as a holiday gift, Animoog V2 features a powerful 4 Track Recorder, which gives Animoog users the ability to record audio from within Animoog or import audio tracks directly from their iTunes library. Users can then split, loop, copy, paste, and share individual clips, or mix down entire songs and upload them directly to SoundCloud, all from within the Animoog’s universe. This 4 Track Re-corder will be free to existing users until Dec. 31, 2012 at which time it will revert to it’s regular price of $4.99 in the Animoog Store.

New video from Geert Bevin, details below:
A first composition with Animoog 2 and my Eigenharp Alpha.
I’m using a single sound patch in Animoog that totally changes based on how I touch the keys on the Eigenharp. The sound ranges from something akin to a polyphonic theremin to percussive glass sparkles as well as everything in between. This patch was based on one of Animoog’s Acoustic Expansion Pack patches.
This can be freely downloaded from SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/gbevin/this-is-not-the-end
Animoog 2 has improved its MIDI handling tremendously and together with an iConnectMIDI interface, I’m able to send the Eigenharp expression data to Animoog at full rate without any decimation. Creating and playing music with Animoog is now a very emotional experience. Currently this only reacts to polyphonic aftertouch, but I’m hopeful that Moog might ultimately add full support for Voice-Per-Channel MIDI, maybe even at 14-bit resolution.
Animoog sounds amazing to me and is amongst the top software synths I’ve played.
Moog Music has updated their Animoog app to version 2.0. This major update to the iOS synthesizer is free for existing Animoog users and includes many user requested features and product enhancements, including: accelerometer integration which gives Animoog owners the ability to tilt their iPad in any direction as an interactive 3D modulation source; note hold and scale lock, and tools for advanced users like, Load/Save MIDI CC maps, Audiocopy/Audiopaste integration and support for the new Audiobus platform.
