The Moog Model 15 App is the first Moog modular synthesizer and synthesis educational tool created exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. 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. Because the Model 15 App utilizes Apple’s Metal technology, only 64-bit devices are supported. Compatible devices include iPhone 5s or newer, iPod touch 6 or newer, iPad Air or newer, and the iPad Pro. The Model 15 App requires iOS version 9.3 or later to work. Additional Features • Ships with over 160 unique presets • Recreates the sound of a hardware Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer • Easily share presets and recordings with anyone • Tutorial patches to assist all experience levels • Intuitive patching and cable coloring • Support for landscape and portrait modes • Voltage-controlled stereo ping-pong delay • Expressive sequencing arpeggiator • Moog 1150 Ribbon controller • Real-time looping recorder with overdub and immediate sharing • Up to two controllers on-screen (iPad only) • Optional left-handed UI operation Supports • AUv3 Audio Unit Extensions • 3D Touch and Apple Pencil integration for after pressure • Note-per-channel MIDI controllers • Ableton Link • Inter-App Audio and Audiobus • MIDI Bridge and Audio Bridge • 7 and 14-Bit MIDI • MIDI Program Change • Bluetooth LE MIDI controllers • Typing keyboards for shortcuts and musical typing • AudioCopy, AudioPaste and AudioShare



  • Hell Yes

    This is one of the coolest and most diverse sounding synthesizers in the entire App Store. Moog continues its lead on unique sounds for yet another year.
  • Everything you’d expect from Moog

    The Model 15 is endlessly fantastic. Sounds amazing. The interface and functionality is a beautiful hybrid of old skool modular classics and today’s needed functionality. Did I say it sounds AMAZING!? Great, flexible routing options. I was impressed when I could control it with an outboard keyboard via network session. I was FULLY sold when I was able to control the M15 via an outboard keyboard, easily assign cc to the same, WHILE running via Lightning into Logic Pro tracking on one channel and MIDI tracking to another. MIDI playback from Logic plays back in the synth, knobs moving and all. Quick routing change allowed me to have the MIDI track in Logic playback and “reAmp” onto another audio track. Long story.. long... the Model 15 is a real deal performance and studio Moog; well worth every penny. I hope Moog keeps going and brings the DFAM or similar into iOS.
  • No midi clock support, tendering this app useless for serious musicians.

    By Fightcats
    Am I stupid, or can garageband or logic not control the midi for this app? Plus, how on earth cant this app play off of midi notes? Am i getting something wrong here?
  • Excellent work must buy app

    This brings me back to my analogue engineering days.Fantastic app for any tech savvy audiophile or musician.

    Ok, so I’m primarily a guitarist who over the last few years has got into piano and synths more. I’ve had Arturia iMini for a while, I use the Alchemy synth in Garage Band and Logic, and even recently bought Model D app as well. But this (Moog Model 15) is just mind blowing. I can’t praise it enough and although I’m on an iPhone X, (now I really want a 64 bit iPad) I am having so much fun with this and learning so much about synthesis too. My phone is plenty powerful to run it like butter as you can imagine but I do want to run it on an iPad... The sounds are just sooo fat and deeper? than any other soft synth I’ve ever heard, it’s just a joy to navigate, and experiment with! Seriously if you are thinking of trying this just buy it. I think a real Model 15 is $10,000!! So this is an absolute steal. I’m running a pair of cheap studio monitors and using my old Korg digital piano as a midi keyboard for this, all connected via a Korg plugkey (that’s awesome as you can charge your device while playing). All I can say to the Moog developers of this app is Bravo! I’m blown away!
  • 😳

    By Smarte002
    Wow now this is a synth just so many possibilities only problem is in on a small screen so I have to do some scrolling but moog has done it again I wish people still use these in mainstream music more often instead of looking for samples
  • Absolutely Stunning!

    By thestarfire
    I am contemplating getting into the expensive realm of modular Eurorack synths...after searching for a modular app I saw lots of people mentioning the Model 15 - it’s not fully modular like soft tubes vst but it has enough to get you framiliar and get your feet wet. The sound capabilities are absolutely mesmerizing as is the sound quality. You get 10K plus worth of capability on your iPad. It is almost enough to bring a tear of amazement - god speed to moog and the devs because you have done a huge service for all the people who get to use this app🤗
  • World-class modular on a shoestring

    By mark_zwei
    A $10k modular synth for $30? You can’t really go wrong. Easily worth it just for the presets, and seems to work well w/ GarageBand. UI is nice. Easy to navigate and use. Sounds amazing. One thing: I wish it included a richer set of tutorials.
  • The record/import/export features are not all that useful.

    By Eriptron
    Update: Thank you Moog Music for the ‘partial’ reply (You ignored the oscilloscope request). Asking for the record/import/export 5 minute limitation to be ‘removed’ is obviously NOT requesting a full featured DAW. Nice try. When Moog Music signed the agreement with Allihoopa (are you even aware of this?) the 5 minute limitation should have been changed to at least be in concert with the maximum song upload accepted by Allihoopa. As it is it prevents uploading any piece to the Allihoopa music server that’s longer than 5 minutes! It’s my understanding that Allihoopa will accept songs up to 10 minutes in length. When Moog Music accepted the arrangement with Allihoopa, Moog Music should have been ‘progressive’ enough (read ‘cared enough’) to change that design. As it is now it makes it rather pointless to use the Model 15 app for posting pieces to Allihoopa when you have to limit it to 5 minutes. ——- The record/import/export features are not all that useful since they are restricted to just 5 minutes (seriously, what’s Moog Music thinking here?)! Minus one star. I’m not sure why Moog Music thinks that unlimited overdubs is unique, special or’s digital, of course it does. That was only an issue with Mylar tape recording overdubs. The record/import/export features should only be limited to the device’s free memory. The Model 15 app could use a phase oscilloscope with at least time and amplitude controls. The only synth app, that I am aware, that has these controls is the iVCS3.
  • Worth the money !
