Animoog is a music synth application designed for the iPad, iPhone and BlackBerry Z10. Animoog is powered by Moog Music's Anisotropic Synthesis Engine.[1]

Description[edit]

There are three versions of Animoog. Animoog for the iPad is simply named 'Animoog'. 'Animoog for iPhone', which offers different features and layout, works on iPhones and the iPod Touch. There also is a third version named 'Animoog for Blackberry', built for the BlackBerry Z10.

Animoog comes with tens of varied sound presets. Over a thousand Animoog presets are available through official and user-provided expansion packs. Expansion packs include work from acclaimed sound designers, such as Richard Devine, Drew Neumann, Sascha Dikiciyan, Adam Holzman and popular artists such as Grateful Dead.[2]

Animoog won a TEC award in early 2013 with the mention of being "Expressive, Captivating and Sonically Immersive".[3]

Animoog is also the sound engine at the core of the Theremini,[4] a modern theremin built by Moog.
