The 1971 reference of the iMini was made famous by artists and bands such as Stevie Wonder, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Keith Emerson, Devo, Jean Michel Jarre and more. We brought the features and sound of this classic to the iOS platform! iMini not only recreates the look and feel of the most legendary synthesizer, it does it with unparalleled sound quality. iMini is based on the award winning Arturia Mini V software that was created in partnership with Dr. Robert Moog himself, back in 2003. Thanks to this heritage, continuous research and refinements over the years, iMini comes with amazing sound quality and a large collection of preset sounds created by top sound designers such as Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream) and Geoff Downes (Asia).
You can play iMini’s numerous sounds from the iPad keyboard. You can create your own sounds and start building your personal sound palette.
If you are an owner of the Arturia Mini V software on your Mac or PC, you can import and export sounds between your laptop or desktop Mini V and iMini.
You can also control iMini from a MIDI keyboard via CoreMIDI and integrate it into your studio or live performances.
iMini is a Tabletop Ready app. The connect menu allows you to connect iMini to the Retronyms Tabletop app, giving you an integration with a complete studio environment. You can use multiple instances of iMini; record your performance into a real-time sequencer; automate any of the parameters; add effects; process other modules through the iMini filters, and more. Tabletop also features add-ons for more effects and instruments from other 3rd party companies.

Ratings and Reviews
Okay ish but not like desktop version at all
This is okay but the presets are super janky. They essentially are the original presets from the original Mini V desktop as they are named the same. The latest desktop version is amazing.
Aurturia have let themselves down by not updating this app and having the same presets as the desktop version. I love Arturia but not this. I've requested a refund from Apple.
It’s like having a moog in your pocket. And who doesn’t want that? With a midi controller attached and audio out into a big speaker you are transformed into the coolest & loudest person in the band. The arp possibilities are vast letting you shape the sound and rhythm to create evolving, dynamic pieces of music. It’s the best 4 quid I’ve spent.
Faultless synth, pointless for performance
All of the iOS Arturia software is excellent with respect to their faithful emulations of classic synthesisers but none can receive MIDI bank or program changes. Fine (although limiting) if your recording but unusable for live performance. The Moog version beats this hands down in this respect. Such a shame that they still haven’t addressed this as I’d love to use the SEM &
Prophet for live gigs.
