The Moog Model 15 App is the first Moog modular synthesizer and synthesis educational tool created exclusively for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac.
Each facet of the Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer has been meticulously recreated in this application to ensure the power and transcendent sound quality of each module remains intact. The character, harmonic complexity and mystique of the Moog Model 15’s modules, from the legendary Moog 921–series oscillators and 904A Low Pass Filter, to the coveted 907 Fixed Filter Bank have been painstakingly preserved.
In order to develop the most immersive and expressive modular interface possible, the Model 15 App has been designed utilizing Apple’s new Metal advanced graphics engine. This ensures that all zooming, panning and modular patching throughout the application feels completely natural, something that would have been impossible otherwise.
The Model 15 App features both monophonic and 4-voice polyphonic operation is easily commanded via 4 seamlessly integrated controllers. Simple swipes and taps provide instant access to a traditional Moog keyboard, 1150 ribbon controller, 8-step sequencing arpeggiator and the award-winning Animoog keyboard with 22 built-in scales and polyphonic modulation capabilities.
Also included are extended features which expand the capabilities of the app beyond the traditional offerings of the hardware Moog Model 15. These include total MIDI integration, assignment for external control, use as a MIDI controller, dedicated Audio Bridge and MIDI Bridge modules, looping recorder module with overdubbing, a master ping-pong delay module and a new extension cabinet that includes additional amplifiers and voltage-controlled reversible attenuators that can be used for effects like ring-modulation.
The Model 15 App requires Big Sur version 11.0.1 or later to work.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s beautiful in every way - sound, design, usability. Just buy it!
What else can I say? Everything about the Model 15 is a work of art. Great sounding synths need to be reliable, and great sounding, and have a well designed interface and user interaction. The Moog Model D (and its Model D cousin) get it just right. That growling fat sound is so rich I sometimes play a long note and listen to it for ages.
An example or two of how well conceived and designed this synth app is. Any modular user knows how the cables can get in the way of the controls. But a simple double finger double tap dims the cables so that the underlying controls can be read and accessed.
Also, it’s likely that having plugged in one end of a cable, that your desired connection point is sometimes off screen. No problem! Just scroll with the other finger.
It is little touches like this that other synths often lack which raise the Moog synth apps above so many others.
The effort made to make the synth look like the real thing is remarkable - and it looks great!! This may also have educational value for those who are interested in vintage/modular gear. However it's all a bit annoying when you are actually trying to play the thing with leads everywhere and continually having to scroll around to find the connections.... so 1 star off! Result is that I basically use it for making wacky noises to distract me when I'm working and it's fantastic for that. Don't really use it for recording- too much of a fiddle to tweak it. The big thing is the sound - it sounds AMAZING!! The low frequencies are bigger and richer than ANY other software synth! Absolutely worth buying it for that alone. And of course to encourage Moog to keep making software products cos they all sound brilliant. FILTATRON, Moog!! Keep updating it please! It's been my absolute favourite guitar effect since it came out and I'm terrified it'll stop working one of these days!! If you haven't got it, everyone, buy it NOW!
Forget presets, build and learn at the same time, subtractive synthesis is the initial stages of a learning journey and this app is incredible in sound, performance and a credit to the late man himself, Mr B Moog (an absolute legend). I started with this app, now have a couple of mother 32's, who knows what next, keep up good work guys, and you get this app. Only one negative response is the tutorials should go a little deeper, wiring other modules with hints/tricks, I would prefer to pay a little extra for this than spending money on presets.
