The new app is a 16-voice polyphonic synthesiser and is fully compatible with macOS, iOS, and is also available as an AUv3 plug-in.

It is designed for both professional musicians and entry-level synthesists with a built-in timbre editor and recorder, professionally designed presets, full MPE support, and Moog Music’s award-winning three-dimensional Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE).

ASE utilises a novel orbit system to expand the concepts of wavetable and vector synthesis, allowing you to navigate dynamically through the X, Y, and Z axes of sound, where you simply select and drag the orbit path to explore endless sonic configurations.

While the update expands on the original app and is now available on more platforms, it also includes new powerful features such as the ability to share presets across compatible devices, polyphonic modulation and pitch shift, and all new effects, pages, and modules.

These include an ENV/LFO page, MOD page, effects page, arpeggiator module, thick module, and more.

Electronic music pioneer and modular synthesis icon Suzanne Ciani had the chance to run the app through its paces and said “the interface is a hands-on dream”.

“It’s alive with a vibrant spatial sound that blends in with my quadraphonic Buchla perfectly.

“I love its playability, being able to tune the scale and glide over the sensitive keyboard where any note brings awesome expression,” she said.
