Moog Release Virtual Synth For Ipad
Moog has surrendered to the digital age. Once upon a time, they would rather have gone bankrupt than release a synth with digital circuitry, but now with the release of the "Animoog" iPad app, they have hopped over all that and landed right into the dubious world of the "virtual synth". RIP Bob Moog.
I figure that was a good intro to a post about this thing that I have no interest in. Don't let that first paragraph fool you, I'm not a hardcore analogue synth or Moog fan or anything, but I thought it was worth noting. With this Animoog thing being an iPad app it means that it will be nothing more than a yuppie toy for the unprofessional. Not to put the app down, but until they release it on a platform with more than a headphone out jack, use of this beyond novelty will be severely flawed.
Like I said, I have no interest in this "app" beyond it sounding nice. What arrested my attention though was the use of the "Gamma Goblins" theme at the start of Moog's demo video for the app. New readers to this blog should be made aware that my use of the name gammagoblin is unreleated to the song by Hallucinogen, who I found out about coincidently from his link to Shpongle.

Note to self: do update post on use of the name Gammagoblin
