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.
