Something I always appreciated about classical music training was learning to appreciate the particulars of each instrument, whether or not you played them yourself.

A French Horn, for instance, is not an instrument without challenges: And in technology — whether acoustic instrumental or digital — every design is about tradeoffs. Instead, I wanted to begin a conversation about how these tools are used as instruments that includes real critical discussion. I heard from developers, too, on and off the record, and I suspect this will continue to lead to experimentation in mobile software.

Incidentally, I also heard from a lot of people animoo went out and bought Animoog because they saw the story on CDM. The best of these videos is at top, a video tutorial as many readers had requested. Tip of the hat to Synthtopia here for following up on this issue.

This gives you two principal advantages of the iPad as a tablet: As our friend and MeeBlip co-creator James Grahame put it, tutirial tactile experience of the iPad is the same as running your finger along a bathroom mirror.

Instruments have frets and keys for a reason; tactile feedback allows you to play them without looking directly at them.

You still get a software instrument that runs on an instant-on tablet rather than buried in menus on a computer.

But it might be one that you really enjoy, and that still gets you away from your MacBook for a bit. The Eigenharp and Animoog seems like a match made in heaven since the Eigenharp is able to send three independent detailed per-note performance data streams and the Animoog is able to react to this on a per-note level.

Also, the visualization of the sound on the Animoog is wnimoog, it gives a great representation of what your sound is doing. A number of commenters also noted that Animoog most likely uses sampled wavetables as its oscillator sources rather than modeling, but that approach can indeed yield good sounds. In fact, I remain more interested in what people actually do musically, and what about an instrument makes them happy more than splitting hairs about audio fidelity.


If this video helps liberate you to go play with Animoog, have at it! Synthesis, Still the Frontier: What synths are, how they might sound, and how we might play them tutotial turn them into music remain open-ended.

So, I hope that any criticism is not grounds for hand-wringing, as someone put it, but an added motivation to go and experiment and play. I know it is for me.
