Though it would be nice to own the real thing fans of the Minimoog Model D can take solace in the fact that it will live on as an iOS app…
Created exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch the much-loved, yet short lived Minimoog Model D costs just £4.99; a rather affordable amount, especially compared to the original’s £3,400 price tag.
There are 160 presets included to lead you on your own sonic forays and even features new additions not found on the original. Users can now play chords with up to four-note polyphony, take advantage of the ‘easy-to-use’ arpeggiator, layer up their tracks with a real-time looping recorder with unlimited overdubs, experiment with the tempo-synchronisable stereo ping-pong delay module and the Bender – a wide-range stereo time modulation effect module.
AUv3 Audio Unit extensions are also supported meaning the Model D can be integrated with iOS DAWs like GarageBand.
