Moog's new Animoog app for iPad is one of the coolest synths to hit Apple's App Store. Learn all about Animoog and its revolutionary Anisotropic synthesis engine in this deep, 21-video tutorial by Expert Synthesist, Rishabh Rajan...
The iPad, due to its amazing Multi-Touch interface, has changed the way we think about and interact with audio synthesis. In this tutorial, Rishabh Rajan takes you on a tour of Animoog from its intuitive GUI to the arcana of its synth engine.
He starts off with a introduction of the Anisotropic Synthesis Engine (or ASE) and what makes it so unique and powerful in the world of synthesis.> Next there's a progression of videos on subtractive synthesis covering Animoog's Oscillators, Filters and Envelopes. Rishabh also explains how the designers at Moog have cleverly commingled their classic synthesis technology with the Multi-Touch world of the iPad. Once basic synthesis has been covered, Rishabh is deep into the the ASE. This is where you'll learn about Animoog's awesome X/Y Pad. You'll also see how to create and draw sonic Orbits and Paths and how much fun it is to animate and control all of Amimoog's advanced sound morphing features.
Synth Master Rishabh finalizes this tutorial with a section on sound design where you'll see him create pads and Dubstep wobble bass patches from scratch. He'll even show you how to use Animoog with an external controller for better integration into your MIDI production world!
