Moog’s iconic Minimoog Model D is now a $5 iOS app
Moog Music has launched an iOS app version of the Minimoog Model D, giving the hardware synth that was used by artists like Kraftwerk, Trent Reznor, and Gary Numan a faithful digital reproduction. The app launch comes just months after Moog said it was discontinuing building new Minimoog Model D synths due to it “being consumed at a much higher rate than anticipated.”
The main portion of the app is a faithful visual analogy to the hardware counterpart, down to the mimicked wood cabinetry and metal hinge above the keyboard. But the company has taken some liberties and added capabilities exclusive to the app. While the hardware Minimoog Model D is monophonic (produces only one note at a time), the app has the option to play chords with up to four notes at once.
