    How about having a Minimoog on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, released by Moog itself, paying less than 5 dollars?
    That's right, Moog Music has released the Minimoog Model D for iOS!
    Minimoog is an absolute classic.
    Launched in the 70's, it stood out in several musical styles, always used by great artists and still of the
    dream of almost all keyboard players.
    Moog's monophonic analog synth has been out of production for a long time.
    In recent years, it has been re-manufactured in a limited edition, but is already out of production again.
    So Moog decided to take Minimoog to as many people as possible by launching an iOS app that costs less than $ 5,
    entirely based on the original instrument, compatible with iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch with 64-bit processor.
    The interface is what we expect from a Minimoog.
    We have 3 oscillators, the classic low pass filter, the envelope generators, etc.
    But the cool look becomes an accessory when we start to hear the sounds of the Minimoog Model D app.
    After investing heavily in Model 15, the recreation of its modular system for iOS,
    Moog seems to be using the same sound engine inside the Minimoog.
    The tone is very bright, the bass is present and the controls are smooth and very precise.
    And there are 160 presets of different categories, including the classic group, with some sounds you'll probably recognize.
    But the Minimoog Model D app is not limited to re-creating the behavior and sounds of the original instrument.
    It takes advantage of digital technology to bring some cool news.
    The Minimoog app, unlike the analog synth, is capable of operating also in polyphonic mode with 4 voices.
    In addition, we have 4 integrated effects, with the look of MoogerFoogers: Arpeggiator, Bender (a kind
    of chorus, capable of other modulations too), a stereo ping pong delay and a looper, to create sequences and improvise.
    Talking about the technical side, the Minimoog Model D is compatible with the Audio Unit 3 format and can be
    used in GarageBand and other music production apps on the iPad or iPhone.
    The Ableton Link feature is also available.
    It works with any MIDI controller that works with iOS and you can easily map all the panel controls with the MIDI Learn.
    By the way, the app is capable of operating also with high-resolution MIDI controls, which is great!
    Still on MIDI, there is compatibility with the new MPE technology, that used in GeoShred and other apps,
    allowing the control of pitch and pitch bend independently by note.
    You can also switch presets via Program Change messages and use Bluetooth MIDI controllers.
    Finally, it is worth saying that presets created by the user can be shared
    with extreme ease, via airdrop, dropbox, email and etc.
    A lot of people have asked me about the differences between the Minimoog Model D and Arturia's iMini,
    a minimoog simulator for iPad that has been around for some time.
    If your a curious about that, check this video to watch my comparison showing the main differences between them.
    Finally, just two criticisms: I found the system of presets a bit weird.
    It is beautiful, but not very functional working just horizontally.
    The other thing has to do exactly with the use of the screen.
    I would love to be able to hide the keyboard when using a MIDI controller.
    It is not always necessary to occupy the space with the virtual keys.
    The same goes for this part of settings and options.
    I always remember Korg's iMS-20, which I consider to be one of the best synth interfaces ever released for the iPad.
    For me it is impossible not to like the possibility of having a Minimoog in your pocket or in your backpack,
    paying less than 5 dollars, with a version created by the manufacturer of the original instrument.
    I will not even be discussing here if the app is better or worse than the physical
    instrument that costs almost a thousand times its price!
    It's a completely different experience.
    The cool thing is that the app sounds great, behaves like expected and is extremely useful and fun!
