Do you think Moog will release another app?

edited December 2019 in General chat

Model 15 was released in Jan 2016, Model D in (I think March) 2018. Do you think Moog will release another app in 2020? If so, what do you think they would port over or what would you wish to see? Im wondering if they will do another one of their vintage synths or possibly a Sub 37 or maybe a new Animoog. I love all three of their synth apps and I personally hope they do keep releasing new apps. What do you all think?

  • No idea but I hope so. Their apps sound amazing. I hope they have the funds/motivation to do something new (ala Animoog) instead of another digital port of another analog synth.

    That said, I'd probably jump on some of their classic modules in AUv3 format.

    I would love to see something unique like animoog also but i remember reading somewhere that Animoog was contracted out to a programmer (i think the guy who did Nave or Nlog) and I think thats why it doesnt receive any substantial updates so Hopefully at least they will port one of their hardware synths. I do feel like most of the sounds any port they would make are already covered by Model 15 and Model D though. I think Model 15 is amazing and capable of so many amazing sounds and really can do everything Model D can. Model D is so much easier to use if you don't feel like learning Model 15.

  • Yeah, that's sorta what I mean about another Moog virtual analog—it'd have to be something really special to cover territory Model 15 doesn't already beautifully cover.

    The original Animoog (and Filtatron) developer was Chris Wolfe (who also made Jasuto). He was employed by Moog at the time. No idea what he's up to now. Geert Bevin (who also did the software side of the Linnstrument) created Model 15, Model D and I think did several Animoog updates. Not sure what he's up to these days but LinkedIn says he's still at Moog so we're free to dream and dream and dream. :)

  • An AU3 version of Filtatron would be nice.

    I guess but it doesn’t really do anything Model 15 doesn’t do except take up less processing power. In fact with Model 15 you can dial in 4 filters and the delay as an effect.

    I hope so as well. For me there is place for another level of sound when it comes to analog/vintage (plus analog FX emulations on top).
    Model D filters are really good and the saturation is the best i heard yet on iOS. It is also my favorite Minimoog emulation (beside a modular which can do the same and sounds better).
    Model 15 is nice but sound wise miles away from other modulars doing quite the same on my mac.
    Animoog is the most unique app of all of them for me and still so fun and expressive to play on just my phone screen.
    I also think a kind of next generation Animoog would be the most interesting thing.
    In general most iOS analog emulations are good but not even close to my favorites on my mac. I would anyway prefer these kind of Animoog apps for a multi-touch device. Here iOS devices really shine.
