The Minimoog Model D App is a mobile transmutation of the world’s first portable synthesizer, the Minimoog Model D®. Optimized for use on all 64-bit iOS devices, anyone can jump in and play with over 160 included presets or lay fingers to the controls and begin exploring vast magical realms of creative potential. Taking full advantage of the iOS platform, the Minimoog Model D App incorporates a number of inspiring sound creation tools and capabilities not present on its analog antecedent. New functions include the ability to play chords with up to four-note polyphony, an easy-to-use arpeggiator for rhythmic pattern creation, a real time looping recorder with unlimited overdubbing capacity, a tempo-synchronizable stereo ping pong delay module, and the Bender -- a wide-range stereo time modulation effect module. The Minimoog Model D App also supports AUv3 Audio Unit extensions, which allows multiple instances of this powerful instrument to be used simultaneously within compatible iOS apps like Apple’s GarageBand®. A BRIEF HISTORY Introduced by Moog in 1970, the Minimoog Model D served as the archetype for all electronic keyboards that followed. It gave users the ability to design their own sounds, translating imagination into reality. The Minimoog’s portability, affordability and accessibility made it the go-to instrument for musicians looking to expand beyond the traditional sounds of the time. Bernie Worrell used the Minimoog Model D to establish Parliament Funkadelic’s futuristic funk sound. Kraftwerk employed the Minimoog Model D on the successful concept album Autobahn, sparking an entirely new genre. Gary Numan replaced his live band’s guitars with Minimoog Model Ds, creating the prototype for industrial music. The classic sound of the Minimoog Model D can be heard on Bob Marley’s Catch A Fire, Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Dr. Dre’s The Chronic; Detailed in the mini-doc series “A Brief History Of The Minimoog”.

  • OK for what it is

    By Ardiril
    The interface on an iphone is too tiny for precision knob twisting, and the lag time for pressing keys is significant. A step sequencer would improve the value greatly.
  • Synthetic electronic sounds industrial rhythms all around

    By Beshwa
    So much fun This app gives that great sense of wonder and exploration in finding sounds old and new on a fantastic analog electronic instrument.
  • Horrible cpu

    By housemachine
    Major crashes in BeatMaker 3 trying to bounce a pattern to audio it shuts down
  • Shoulder of orion: Step sequencer

    By Camilo Calvo
    Could you please add an step sequencer for this amazing synth? I didn’t mind to pay for it, but its a really missing feature. Thank you if you read and consider this.
  • Mini Moog modvD for IOS

    Had the real thing in a couple of bands I nearly to mid 70’s. This is the real deal with so much more. Criminy. Its awesome! CosMix7
  • Good rendering of a classic

    By Rhcole
    This app works well and is fun to play. I am giving it three stars not as a complaint, but in comparison to the real deal. Back in the day I had an original Minimoog, and well, it just ran circles around this little app sonically. I DO like being able to play chords, though. Nice app.
  • Model D = Awesome Sounds!

    By BAR112
    I am not a musician by any means; but I do remember loving the German import “space rock” (ie, Klaus Schultz and Tangerine Dream) from the 70’s made with the original Moog keyboards. This Model D re-creation for iOS sounds amazing on my iPad Pro! Such a wide variety of sounds come packaged with the app—so much fun! Thanks Moog!
  • If someone told me 30 years ago....

    By winj3r
    That it would be possible to enjoy playing and experiencing a virtual Moog Model D on a “magical tablet”, I’d have suspected some sort of illicit lab-based substance was involved in that prediction! Here it is though... it’s 2018 and not only have we moved beyond requiring hardware equipment but also the need for a computer 😃 The sound of this Moog Model D app is jaw-dropping, truly. I can’t say I’ve had the pleasure of playing one in person but I have a feeling the sound wouldn’t be far off. I love hardware synths but this is a no-brainer. It’s worth every penny trust me!
  • iPhone X issues

    By Alpine_White
    The screen of the iPhone X cuts out important controls on the top and bottom of the screen. Please fix it! I love the app!
  • Your update took my presets

    By Biznatchio
    Dude. A lot of work/hours went into my presets. I’d hate to think you were pushing me to buy expansion packs. That’s not cool.
