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!
Download Animoog from the App Store, watch this tutorial and see how you can add a whole new layer of animated sound synthesis to your music productions.

Your knowledge on sound synthesis is amazing. The same with dubstep, and I feel sad for your students at ICOM. they Gona miss you
I follow all your tutorials and thanks to them I. Learn more.
It would be nice to see you do tutorials on the Sub 37 Editor and the Model D.

Brilliant tutorial on Animoog App. Thorough, step-by-step overview of all the features and their applications. In addition to this you get a basic overview of subtractive synthesis and Animooog sound design lessons. Finally I can utilise the app to its fullest. This tutorial combined with Rishabh's Glitch course has given me some great inspiration. Thanks!

Rishabh Rajan does a very complete and very clear overview of Animoog including extras like how to use it with your DAW, and he even covers the most recent small update to the app. Excellent stuff.

Really good and gives a lot of inspiration. I like that its not hasty, so I can easy follow along on my own iPad whiteout having to pause the video all the time.

I've had Animoog for a while but never realized what I could do with it until watching this video. I love the part about being able to use WiFi MIDI to integrate it into my Logic setup. Awesome.

I was confused by Animoog, but after this course I am confused no longer! However, I hope there will be an update covering Animoog 2.0 soon.

I now have a much better understanding of how this app works and will get a lot more out of it. I love how everything gets built from the ground up off a default patch. It makes things so much easier to understand. Would love to see more courses based on iPad apps here.

I've seen and read many synthesis videos. This was a great combination of explaining basic synthesis AND providing an overview of Animoog! Great job!!
