New functions include the ability to play chords with up to four-note polyphony, an easy-to-use arpeggiator for rhythmic pattern creation, a real time looping recorder with unlimited overdubbing capacity, a tempo-synchronizable stereo ping pong delay module, and the Bender -- a wide-range stereo time modulation effect module. Moog Music have been honest that, while they have significant expertise in creating iOS apps, they have limited resources to throw at a whole new development stream of AAX/VST/AU plug‑ins. Sure, you can’t patch it into a modular analogue system, and it lacks an external signal input, but these are small prices to pay for all of the extras, especially since you’re saving 99.6 percent of the price of the original. Must be something with external MIDI track that doesn't exist in GB.
That should do it.
But that’s a limitation of MIDI, not something specific to the Model D app. They now tend to be damn good, and they’re getting better all the time. For decades, people dreamed of playing a polyphonic Minimoog but, when soft synths made this possible, they found that the results could be too big and too demanding of attention to sound good in a mix.
I accept that it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, and there’s no doubt that i‑thingies can be fiddly for serious use but, if you program your sounds in advance (you can save and reload patches and banks of patches) and use controllers to control them (as you should) you’ll find that you have a very usable Minimoog. However, the biggest difference lies in the app’s optional four‑voice polyphony. Last note priority feels a little odd on a Minimoog although it is, in general, my preferred option for a monosynth. Firstly, even in Classic contour mode, you can’t cause the filter to open further or the VCA gain to increase by playing rapidly. thanks a lot! In conclusion, this is a great emulation of the Minimoog Model D, and it’s amazing value. In this review I will discuss the features that set it apart as well as compare it to the other Model D emulations on iOS, Arturia’s iMini and Amazing Noises Mood. But how about being the original manufacturer and recreating a synth that is itself a recreation of the most classic synth of them all? In this setup, yes. Being the original manufacturer recreating that classic is another. In addition to capturing Model D and Animoog audio, this method will work great to capture a variety of audio from the internet... You just saved me the $100 I was about to spend on a Loopback license! Thank you!! It gave users the ability to design their own sounds, translating imagination into reality. Saved the post a while back. Were I to play both instruments on stage or in the studio, I doubt that many could identify which I was using. The Model D app is based upon the 2016 Minimoog Model D — the one with the dedicated LFO and additional modulation routings — rather than the original Minimoog, so that’s the synth against which I compared it.
Press J to jump to the feed. This is a shame because, subtle though the effect is, it adds a lot to the character of solos played on Minimoogs, so I hope that it’s added in a future revision. Consequently, I’m not going to belabour the point any further.
