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.

Dropped the ball big time
Once upon a time this was one of my favorite iOS synth, sadly, the ball has been dropped by not making this an Audio Unit a year ago. Frankly, it’s no point to even bother making it one now since Mood released the model D, and to be honest, I literally forgot this existed.
At this point, Auria needs to just release something else and make sure it’s an Audio Unit, because if it isn’t, it will be a no sale.
While this still sounds good, I would not suggest it to anyone.
Audio Unit is the present/future of iOS and anyone who can’t grasp that should not develop for the iOS music platform.
Good sounds - some big flaws - better apps exist.
For the cost, this is a great MiniMoog emulator. The presets in the app are good, and there’s a lot of plasticity of sound. However, there are some big flaws - the Audiobus support really isn’t what it should be, the app is very rarely updated, and most importantly, the “Tap to set BPM” function is completely broken - on all platforms and versions of iOS, tapping this button instantly crashes the app every time. (Trust me, I tried this on a lot of iPads.) I used to have a review here that said I loved this app except for this one fatal flaw, but honestly - at this point, this app doesn’t impress me all that much. There are now a number of MiniMoog emulators on the market - most of all, Moog’s own Model D app, which looks and feels like iMini, except with a LOT more functionality and better sound. (And the BPM controls don’t crash the app!) My advice: skip the iMini and spend a few extra bucks on Model D instead. It’s worth it.
Used To Love It. Not So Much Now. ☹️
I’ve had iMini for years and used to use and love it. But I’ve drifted away from it. I’ve actually owned a Model D since the late 70’s, but was always happy to have this (once great) app as a convenient and portable substitute for my iPads.
I fired it up today and I must admit that I’m very disappointed. According to the App Store, Arturia hasn’t updated it in 3 years. And it certainly shows!! No AUv3, Tap Tempo crashes the app, outdated connectivity options that are now greyed out rather than removed, no Bluetooth connectivity, blah, blah, blah.
I love and use Arturia hardware and software. Use their products all the time. But revisiting this particular app was a huge disappointment. They should update it or just drop it from the store. It’s obvious that they have forgotten it even exists.
This is not to badmouth Arturia as a company. They are great. But this app should be avoided.
Buy Moog’s very own version. It sounds and works great, and they stay on top of it. In fact, it was updated just 2 days ago. It’s based on their classic baby, and they treat it as such. 👍
