The App Store is home to many fantastic creativity apps, and one of the
best of 2011 was Animoog, from the famous maker of synths Moog. It's a
full software synthesiser, and one that's been designed from the ground
up for iOS devices, while capturing the sound quality that made Moog
such a heavyweight name.
Those not familiar with fiddling with
waveforms and filters may find it a little intimidating at first, but
the great interface makes Animoog just as viable as a fun sonic toy as a
compositional tool. It comes with bundles of preset sounds, to let you
simply plonk away on the virtual keyboard, or gives you the scope to
create your own, starting with a simple waveform.
