Suzanne Ciani, one of the first and most influential female electronic music composers and synthesists, creates a short sonic sketch using the Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer app. Ciani explores the custom-programmed sounds she designed in the app alongside Moog technicians as they hand-build the app's hardware modular namesake at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC. Ciani's unique patches are available as a free expansion pack in the Model 15's in-app store. The Moog Model 15 App is an iOS version of the iconic 1970’s instrument. It is designed to evoke the joyous experimentation and sonic bliss of it’s predecessor’s vintage hardware, the Moog Model 15 App meticulously recreates the look, feel, and sound of its highly expressive analog namesake.more
This app is a great educational tool for modular analog subtractive synthesis. I made my first ever modular patch with this app and it's really not that difficult to do, all you need to know is how a synthesizer functions and have some knowledge of signal flow. Another thing to keep in mind is that there are 2 types of signals the audio signal itself and control voltage. (envelopes are typically CV modules) I would be still using this app, but I no longer have a supported device and I am waiting till I get either a new iPhone or iPad.
I just got this recently but it is so fun to play around with. You can putter with her all day. She sounds pretty god through headphones too. Very moogy. On the other hand I haven't tried to use her in any real music yet.... we'll see hw that goes. I gotta say that sliding virtual cables on touchstreen feels more right than moving them with a mouse. This is a fun, fun little app.
