I haven’t posted much music software/hardware stuff since I stopped playing keyboards for Diagonals a few years back, possibly due to burnout but more likely due to my building infatuation with indie games.
Peter Kern has a good roundup and a little editorializing about the Moog iPad synth Animoog which is currently only 99 cents on the app store. This is an amazing piece of software, and even at its full price of $30, it’s a steal. Peter has a funny habit of (the more incredible and accessible it gets) bellyaching about iOS stuff even when he’s acknowledging it’s awesome. He’s a tinkerer so he skews towards android, and he’s a gearhead, so he lusts after enormous banks of physical knobs. I understand his need for physical controls in music though, and I hope that Animoog opens up it’s midi control to include MidiCC or maybe even gets some OSC control in there. Right now it has note on/off and that’s it.
