Model 15

Model 15 application logo

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.

Many sounds on this are better than what I can get on my collection of real analogs  Jup1359  5 star

The title says it all. This has a lot of what real analog has, texture, 3D dimensionality, and it's very musical and it's what the ear expects to hear, the way I would expect a Moog to be. For how much this delivers, the price is a practically giving away the Moog tone. I have a Minitaur which is very, very good in terms of giving the highest quality that real analog can sound, and I have a Werkstatt. Again a very analog sounding analog. This software for many sounds is on par with those, not all timbres when the three are simultaneously compared, but there's many patches in this modular software I would use over those. That says a lot since those two real a Moog analogs are some of the most analog analogs I've used.


Incredible  Wcm5150  5 star

This is the absolute best sounding analog modeling synthesizer on the App Store hands-down. I have all of the big ones and this is the only one that has surpassed the Arturia iSEM which was and still is my favorite. It's still my favorite because of its interface. It's the best. But as far as sound quality and authenticity goes the Moog model 15 is the unequivocal winner. The filters, the effects, the oscillators, they are all spot on and second to none. Nobody can do this like Moog. Buy this app. Work this good deserves your patronage. They work hard, have good hearts, and that's why their stuff is so good.


Amazing  freqn  5 star



You'll need a 12.9 iPad Pro and external keyboard  Laarz  3 star

So this synth sounds great. And the skeuomorphic design looks good. It's just a UI that is not user friendly on a regular sized iPad. With the keyboard loaded the synth area is far less than half the screen. The labels are very small, and there is a lot of continual zooming and unzooming and panning required. And also there is a lot of loading and unloading of the keyboard to test the sound if an external keyboard isn't available. If I was already familiar with the interface from using an actual Model 15, then it might be okay (and surely not many of us will have had that chance). But to learn how to patch as I go is a real pain. As is trying to analyze how preset patches are put together. At the very least I would suggest updating with the option of a smaller keyboard, one that doesn't take up a third of the screen. Or more so an alternative digital interface that fits on the screen and functions more simply. Being a slave to the original look, while kind of a novelty, is just not that functional. And I am growing fatigued of this before I have even begun to learn how to program it.


Warmest and fullest analogue synth on ios  Pangoat  5 star

If you're looking for a synth on ios that is basically identical in terms of sound and interface to a real modular analogue synthesizer, this is it. I've got so many synths but this is by far the warmest and most powerful sounding. Also an incredible learning tool. I just can't praise this enough. Holy %#^* moog you've done it again. Thank you!


❤️Moog Music  jslab  5 star

I own a 1970's MiniMoog and a SUB 37. Can't afford a $10,000 Model 15. Now I can experience a modular synthesizer. This is my favorite iOS synth, and I have many. I use it on my iPhone, iPad Air and the new 12.9 iPad Pro. Works great with GarageBand as well. So much fun! Thanks Moog Music!


Wonderful Soft Synth  Nebwise  5 star

One of the most versatile, best-sounding analog synth emulations on iOS. A great everyday tool, a pleasure to program, and a genuinely valuable lesson in classic synth programming.


Amazing...even for beginners!!!  robusto_tony  5 star

I've been fascinated with synths for some time, but I know ABSOLUTELY nothing about synthesis. After watching a very informative tutorial by Rishabh Rajan on this app I'm starting to understand, and all I can say is WOW!!! This app is the truth!!

Great concept but a couple bugs  4 star

For starters this is a really cool app. It looks great and sounds even better. Sometimes the wires are a bit cumbersome and don't connect and disconnect when you want them to or connect with out you meaning to make a connection. Also, tutorial 2 gives you an impossible patch that try's to make you connect an input to an input 💁🏻. It's more then a typo too. It shows you where you're supposed to connect the with arrows and everything so that was kinda weird. I wish there were more tutorials as well but only if they actually work lol


Excellent  MaxZRO  5 star

I don't have access to the synth that this app emulates, but the sound and features of the app are excellent, regardless of the relationship to the original. Equal or better than Animoog, my most used iPad synth since it appeared.

This is great!


Nasty Low end  merchant35  5 star

I can not understand how Moog put bass in an iPad.Great sonic boom!!!


Best Sounding Synth on Ipad  Daiku1  5 star

The sounds from this app are breathtaking. Very analog in nature and pure. The interface is very well done. Great intro to modular, with very usable sounds. A must buy for sure.


WOW WOW Moog does it Again  Shazam777888  5 star

This App not only sounds incredible with that Moog Phatt Full Sound but also really really lets you explore and learn about Modular synthesis without having to buy a $1000 analog modular setup. Already used this Amazing app as well as Animoog App on my new Album "The Mandela Effect" By my Band Zenith Omega Event (Album on iTunes/ CdBaby and Spotify) lol . These Apps Really worth the $


For Professionals Only  Ginaodo  2 star

This may be a very good synthesizer, but this is just a warning for amateurs like myself: Do not spend the $15+ dollars for this app unless you are very very very familiar in the use of synthesizers. This app is only for those who know what they are doing. Im having serious purchase regret. Fifteen dollars is a big mistake to make. :(

Sad boy 2016

The last synth app I'll ever buy  Sad boy 2016  5 star

One of the rare synth apps where I can say I'm having genuine fun exploring and figuring everything out to develop deeper and deeper patches, amazing


Great App  MgaJeff  5 star

Great app, this has become a centerpiece of my music work. I am very impressed by the depth of the program and its relative ease of use. Well worth the cost, especially considering the cost of the actual synth.

Film less Soundtracks

Would have cost 30k 30 years ago. A Synth that lets you do the work.  Film less Soundtracks  5 star

Wow, I was a music major and played synthesizers like this in the original post graduate electronic music studio made by Bob Moog at Cornell University. I have had this app for months now and purchased it the day it came out. Within an hour I was writing presets, but couldn't stop. Since then, the updates have made the app even better. I purchased the preset packs as well. It's great to hear some sound that make's you want to play with it and make another 10 sounds, all completely different, but inspired by the preset in the pack. I have no idea what this app costs now. I think I paid $9.99. but like I stated that was many months ago. One suggestion for a last minute Christmas gift. KORG make's a Bluetooth keyboard that lets you stay totally modular on your iOS device and use a 3 Octave wireless keyboard to play. Bose make's some Bluetooth headphones if you really want to be generous.This is only the 4th review I have done, but because of the Holidays, I thought, why not try and give a 5 star review to a most deserving original modular Synth app as good as any other synth app I own, but different in a special unique way. Happy Holidays and if you have to make a long drive to see some relatives, this app can burn a few hours off the trip easily! Of course I'm talking about the passenger, not the driver (Lol)!


Top notch  qwesterish  5 star

Great sounding, creative. 5 stars dont come easy fom me, this deserves it. Very happy with this purchase.


I cant believe this app was only 30 dollars  nicodemosmusic  5 star

An entire synthesizer on my iphone. Does anyone know of a way to get the iphone screen to transfer onto another platform? The apps great but having carpel tunnel its a lot more difficult to hold my small phone for such a long period of time.
