The Mood synth has immense sonic ability.
It has captivated my imagination and sense of discovery.

Ratings and Reviews
Great sounds..Lots of fun to play
Classic synth with lots of modern digital synth features added in. Great sounds and lots of presets. Lots of fun to play. In its own class above the ranks of many other iOS synth apps. I have been using it since it’s release and always find it fun and fresh. I use it both standalone and as an AUv3 plug-in on tracks in the Audio Evolution DAW app on my iPhone XS Max. The app continues to have regular developer updates, including a major update just today.
Less a Moog emulator, more a great synth on its own
Yes, the basic layout is a Minimoog. It has its own sound character, however, that is unique among the iOS synths. The additional FM section allows for some really nice bell-like overtones, and the sampler oscillator can really turn things loose. Modulate everything, and a really cool 'step sequencer'/modulator. The filter can get a little smeary especially when using polyphony, and that's my only complaint.
Essentially perfect iOS synth
Need to update my review... been using a lot more recently and have been getting a lot of crashes, note hangs, etc in AUM. When a note hangs using all notes off in AUM works about 20% of the time, and usually causes all instances of Mood to become non-operational... Hope this gets some update love soon...
This is basically the last iOS synth I'll ever need. AU interface needs a major overhaul (too many pages, too much flipping back and forth, no way to get a birds eye overview), but other than that, it's amazing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
