Moog Music announced the release of The Minimoog Model D Expansion Pack for their award winning iOS synthesizer, Animoog. The expansion pack includes 69 Timbres extracted from a vintage Minimoog Model D analog synthesizer, and 213 presets designed exclusively for Animoog's Anisotropic Synthesis Engine. Presets were crafted by a preeminent set of designers including Sound Creation Expert Kevin Lamb, Timbre Extraction and Design Pundit Drew Neumann, Synthesist Adam Holzman, DJ/Producer Dom Kane, and Sonic Mayhem's Sascha Dikiciyar.
"Animoog's Anisotropic Synthesis Engine is unique in that it uses timbres as evolving oscillators rather than as samples," said Cyril Lance, Chief Engineer Moog Music. "Taking timbres from a Minimoog and placing them in Animoog creates very distinctive sounds that are advanced and invigorating. This isn't an emulation of a Minimoog. It is actually a new way to experience it."
The Minimoog Model D Expansion Pack is available now as an In-App-Purchase in the Animoog store for $6.99. The Animoog app, which received the 28th annual TEC award for Audio Apps Technology For Smartphones and Tablets, is available for download on Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and iPod as well as for the Blackberry Z10. Audio samples for Animoog expansion packs are available on the Animoog product page at http://www.moogmusic.com.
