It might get those confounded pocket witches buying real analogue. :D

And that's a good thing.

Sign me up for an iOS editor for my mp-201 or phatty. I'd love to edit presets on my iPad.

Or it might send the message that there's nothing unique about Moog in hardware and that Moog in software is just as good ... cripes, it might even turn out to be true then we'll be truly fuc__ :lol:
uh, no. there will always be the moment someone hears an analogue synth for real, not the clones we all know. at that moment, digital is seen for what it is.

Sure, or 30pin to midi via 3rd party, or 30pin to USB via custom hardware.

I think this is great. Moog are doing the right thing by expanding their products and audience. It WILL be high quality with the Moog feel whatever they make imo. The sound will be digital, but then digital can sound great too. Im sure Moog will never stop making analogue so whats the problem? If this helps them fund more amazing sounding analogue products then this is great news too.

Hats off to them.

And the slim phatty looks great, and im glad theyre taking their time to get the poly just right..

One thing that makes sense about this (if it's real) -- Bob Moog was always interested in new formats/interfaces for humans to interact with electronic instruments. For me, the iPodTouch/iPhone/iPad way of doing things is very involving and "human" feeling -- I spend way more time with my little Touch apps than is probably warranted by their sound or power, just because some of them are so fun to use. So if Moog wants to continue the legacy of exploring the human/machine interface in all forms, doing something for that platform might be a good fit. It would also be a populist sort of move, which again sits well with the Moog legacy IMO.

Looking forward to this app. I hope the price is reasonable. Could this interface somehow with the Voyager's mix input?

The problem is that if the company which manufactures your precision musical equipment starts catering to the specifically-consumer market, they discover that that is where the money is, and not going to great effort and expense to make a product which only appeals to a small demographic. There comes a time when they start to weigh the wants and needs of the small demographic (which are usually extensive and expensive) to those of the average consumer (which are small and easy), as well as the money (a few people paying a lot compared to bazillions of people paying little).

There is a reason why the major synth companies don't waste their time with serious analog synths, and spend all of their time making boxes that make amateurs sound to themselves like professionals. It's where the money is.

For me personally, it's already frustrating enough that most people can't tell what is so special about the sound of Moog synthesizers. Software/iPhone apps/etc. give people the impression that there isn't anything special about it, and anything with the Moog brand name is equal to anything else with the Moog brand name (software or otherwise). Of course, this isn't Moog's fault, but branching into novelty consumerware isn't going to help the issue.

I don't think Moog Music was ever unaware of this.
