DO IT FOR THE MOOGSEUM
iMini is a recreation of the classic 1971 Minimoog synthesizer, which Arturia tells us is one of most iconic synthesizers of all time – and no one should argue with that. The Minimoog synthesizer was made famous by artists and bands such as Stevie Wonder, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Keith Emerson, Devo, Jean Michel Jarre and more, bringing a unique sound to a generation of musicians. Now, based on the TAE technology found in Arturia’s Mini V software that was created in partnership with Dr. Robert Moog himself back in 2003, iMini promises a level of sound quality never before found on the iPad as well as over 500 sounds by leading sound designers. You can play the iMini’s numerous sounds from the iPad keyboard or you can create your own sounds and start building your personal sound palette. If you have Arturia Mini V software on your Mac or PC, you can import and export sounds between your laptop or desktop Mini V and iMini. IMini can be controlled from a MIDI keyboard via CoreMIDI and integrate it into your studio or live performances. Audiobus is supported, plus iMini is ‘Tabletop Ready’. Tabletop is a free iPad application that allows you to integrate iMini into a full studio of devices. It’s worth a mention that Arturia have partnered with the Bob Moog Foundation so that a portion of each sale goes to support their work in music education via the Dr. Bob Sound school program, making available the archives of the late Dr. Bob Moog and funding the dream to build the Moogseum – yes, the “Moogseum”.
