Software Reviews and Criticism

    Pure synth fun.

    Great to see this new version of the classic "Animoog-iPhone". I have enjoyed the original version since it first came out. -- This new version completely refreshes and updates Animoog's look and features. -- With the many new features and interaction possibilities in the new Animoog Z, I will be spending a lot of time exploring and having fun with this synth.

    As a kid my first Moog was a real Mini-Moog back in 1980. Kids today can get the trill of Moog sounds for free and that is game-changing for bringing the next generation of songwriters forward. I love the didactic keyboard which makes it so easy to compose a new part in D# Lydian if I so desire. This is a dream PC. Support this dev team - they bring the joy.

    Amazing. Must Buy!

    Finally animoog is updated as an auv3 plus many new features. The best synth for a decade on ios (and frankly up there with most vsts) is now updated. Still sounds amazing. Such a unique synth. Don’t hesitate to purchase.

  • By Cenk

    One of the greatest synths of all time

    Lots of great presets, and lots of potential for deep sound design. It's great to have Animoog finally available as an Audio Unit, with a modern sound engine.

    A Good Upgrade

    Basically the "Z" model is the same as the original AniMoog. Some features are improved (the mod matrix, for example), while others are essentially the same (some of the effects, the scale programmer, etc.). The workflow is better after shelving the skewmorphic modular synthesizer look and feel of the original, where you had to scroll among "modules" to gain access to them. The Z axis does add some new wave table capabilities. But over all it is not fundamentally different from the original. The price is fair for what it is and the sound quality is very good. Having said all of that, I have never been a big fan of the sound of the Animoog. It sounds very digital and most of the waves in the catalog sound far too similar. I prefer more analog sound qualities to the sterile sound of digital waves. But for those pieces when you want that digital sound, the AniMoog really excels. Very complex wave-shifting is easy and sounds more alive than standard, static waves. Importing waves and preset from AniMoog is easy breezy. I really miss the 4-track recorder, though. Perhaps Moog can bring that back in a future update. So while Animoog Z is not a major new product or even a giant improvement over the previous Animoog, I am still happy I bought it. Its really fun to just experiment with. Its easily worth the price.
