Model 15 App Description & Overview

The Moog Model 15 App is the first Moog modular synthesizer and synthesis educational tool created exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Each facet of the Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer has been meticulously recreated in this application to ensure the power and transcendent sound quality of each module remains intact. The character, harmonic complexity and mystique of the Moog Model 15’s modules, from the legendary Moog 921–series oscillators and 904A Low Pass Filter, to the coveted 907 Fixed Filter Bank have been painstakingly preserved. In order to develop the most immersive and expressive modular interface possible, the Model 15 App has been designed utilizing Apple’s new Metal advanced graphics engine. This ensures that all zooming, panning and modular patching throughout the application feels completely natural, something that would have been impossible otherwise. The Model 15 App features both monophonic and 4-voice polyphonic operation is easily commanded via 4 seamlessly integrated controllers. Simple swipes and taps provide instant access to a traditional Moog keyboard, 1150 ribbon controller, 8-step sequencing arpeggiator and the award-winning Animoog keyboard with 22 built-in scales and polyphonic modulation capabilities. Also included are extended features which expand the capabilities of the app beyond the traditional offerings of the hardware Moog Model 15. These include total MIDI integration, assignment for external control, use as a MIDI controller, dedicated Audio Bridge and MIDI Bridge modules, looping recorder module with overdubbing, a master ping-pong delay module and a new extension cabinet that includes additional amplifiers and voltage-controlled reversible attenuators that can be used for effects like ring-modulation. Because the Model 15 App utilizes Apple’s Metal technology, only 64-bit devices are supported. Compatible devices include iPhone 5s or newer, iPod touch 6 or newer, iPad Air or newer, and the iPad Pro. The Model 15 App requires iOS version 9.3 or later to work. Additional Features • Ships with over 160 unique presets • Recreates the sound of a hardware Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer • Easily share presets and recordings with anyone • Tutorial patches to assist all experience levels • Intuitive patching and cable coloring • Support for landscape and portrait modes • Voltage-controlled stereo ping-pong delay • Expressive sequencing arpeggiator • Moog 1150 Ribbon controller • Real-time looping recorder with overdub and immediate sharing • Up to two controllers on-screen (iPad only) • Optional left-handed UI operation Supports • 3D Touch and Apple Pencil integration for after pressure • Note-per-channel MIDI controllers • Ableton Link • Inter-App Audio and Audiobus • MIDI Bridge and Audio Bridge • 7 and 14-Bit MIDI • MIDI Program Change • Bluetooth LE MIDI controllers • Typing keyboards for shortcuts and musical typing • AudioCopy, AudioPaste and AudioShare
• Integrated Audiobus 3 with full support for MIDI routing • Added three new expansion packs to the store: Alien Systems, Mercurial Strategies and Sinfonietta Sintesi • Added support for Allihoopa to the Recorder export feature (select through the SETTINGS -> SHARE panel) • Added support for sending MIDI pitchbend and mod wheel with the appropriate controller wheels • Fix for user preferences not being restored correctly when launched through Audiobus • Added Restore Purchases functionality to the store • Properly disable metal rendering of controllers when app goes to background • Improved background audio compatibility with other apps • Improvements to the recorder • Updated AudioCopy SDK to v3.4

    Exceptional virtual synth!
  • Gateway to Modular Synthesizers

    By rcolinray
    I've tried a few other software synthesizers and none of them satisfy my desire for a hardware synthesizer like the Model 15 app. If you're GASing (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) for an expensive vintage, analog synthesizer, this app is very close to being the real deal at a fraction of the price. I'm not saying it's a complete replacement, but it will at least hold you over while you save your money for that synth you've been dreaming of. The two features that I would really like to see implemented are a built-in spectrum analyzer and oscilloscope. The spectrum analyzer would be great for seeing what your output looks like on the frequency spectrum. The oscilloscope would be helpful for debugging control voltages and signals, as well as visualizing the audio waveform.
  • Most unique tone generator for iOS

    By Mr. Spellman
    I almost have every synth iOS has to offer and this is up in my top 1%. This app is an absolute must have. It makes it really easy to create your own sounds. The preset voices have a thick and warm tone analog sound. Awesome!!!
  • In The Beginning...

    By marco lino
    Great app overall. Outstanding job by Moog, as usual. Great tool to start your exclusion into sound design and intro to modular synths without going bankrupt. If you dig this, it may be a sign you will dig hardware modular synths. Highly recommended.
  • OMG

    By IamShazamm
    Best app so far for sound design
  • Beautiful UI, Analogue Sound, yet, needs more (or maybe less)

    By AshFallenBrightly
    This is a gorgeous looking synth but best to avoid if you aren't looking for retro sounds ... Now, add a good reverb, etc and its not bad for Ambient & the like ... Use a DAW &/or Audiobus & you can make just about any synth sound far more interesting ... Not really a Sound Designers dream imho ... ANIMOOG is what you want for beautiful sounds & sound creation potential ... Fun synth just the same & well made
  • I agree with all the five star comments

    By David Steve Vega
    I love this app I really do but I must get back to using it now so good bye. ❤
  • Endless sounds

    By Roopee
    I can't imagine a more versatile instrument for your phone. An incredible emulation of the classic Moog modular synthesizer.
  • Very Nice

    By KenOst
    Truly very nice, allows you to experiment and develop nice sounds and effects. Nice interface too.

    There are many synthesizer apps that can be had for iOS, and I own at least a dozen of them. There are exceptional ones, there are good ones, there are mediocre ones, and there are junky ones. I have not been happy with all of my purchases, but I have been happy enough with most of them to keep them. I am no expert in synthesis, but have learned a lot about it in using many of my apps. The Model's an entirely different and utterly fascinating beast, and does a pretty amazing job at emulating very very expensive analog, patch bay-style equipment. No, it is not particularly easy to use, nor is it designed for "beginners," and it's not chock-full of cool and sexy presets. However, what it offers is a learning environment for anyone who can be patient and willing to take, quite possibly, a fair bit of time getting the hang of things. Other than that, it offers stunning potential...the limitations provided by this system are part of what make it so dynamite. There aren't dozens of waveforms to pluck through, there aren't joysticks and a plethora of envelopes to navigate...there is just the nitty gritty raw stuff of a stupendous Moog synthesizer.

    BEWARE*****UPDATE 1+ month later As a direct result of this app you may want to buy 3 Moog Mother 32s in an euro rack configuration. Have about $1500 ready on standby 🙄 --------------------------------------------- This has changed the way I view what an iPad is capable of. I usually download these synth apps on the iPad and they are just mere toys; you play with them when you have time to kill but they don't get used in Production of music. Well, this basically a full blown synth that actually sounds good right on the iPad. It's really good. The $30 price point doesn't make sense until you realize that this is a real synth that you can use like any other vst in your productions. Immediately after minutes of having this, I knew this would be immensely useful so I've already set it up where I can send mini in real time from my DAW on my computer or from a hardware controller to it so that I can use this as a vst during productions. Even the the record and share feature allows me to record a performance all on the iPad in wav and upload it to iCloud Drive and hence have it immediately available in the DAW without the mess of I/O and any added hiss as a result of the recording. It links with my DAW to ensure tempo information is synced between the two. It's beautiful on an iPad Pro. Also note that they've used the "touch resolution" of the iPad to ensure that when you turn knobs, you are turning at a high resolution where the knobs don't jump from one value to the next (although if you use a hardware to send midi data to this device then you may see some minute jumping from one value to another...very tiny jump). So it certainly makes sense why usage on an iPad makes sense if you want that continuous action feel of the knobs. This is really like having this $10,000 synth in your hand anywhere. I wasn't much into analog sound, but recently I took the Deadmau5 masterclass and I am finding (for me, a digital tools user) tools like these (another one called "Diva" on the computer) help me get 80% - 90% of the feel and sound of an analog sound and I'm able to learn modular synthesis anywhere I am. Good job Moog and thanks for bringing this to a digital device for people like me who do not own an analog synth (perhaps, yet😊).
