Animoog v2.2.4, optimized for alternative controllers

Today we released a long-awaited update to Animoog with fixes and improvements for the modern iOS landscape (iOS 8, 64 bit devices, latest Audiobus, IAA, …).

An important improvement is that Animoog will now properly handle full-rate MIDI coming from the Eigenharp, LinnStrument, Continuum, … The massive amount of expression messages used to sometimes put Animoog into a weird state. We tracked this bug down and fixed it, making Animoog an excellent choice for any controller that supports polyphonic aftertouch!


Here’s a summary of the changes:

  • Stable support for iOS 8
  • Stable support for 64-bit devices
  • Revised timbres panel with categories (touch-hold timbre in category for preview)
  • Fixes for timbres showing up with domain name prefixes
  • Audiobus input slot compatibility fixes
  • Virtual Animoog MIDI ports are now always available even if no port is explicitly selected
  • Improved IAA instrument compatibility (IAA transport panel will be done for a future release)
  • Use with any buffer size from 128 to 4096 (256 being the intended size for all supported devices)
  • Fixes for restore purchase functionality
  • Improved in-app store layout and interaction
  • iTunes File Sharing access to timbres, presets and projects
  • Removed import/export preset from setup panel since iTunes File Sharing should cover all needs
  • Added timbre category list under ‘random preset’ to enable/disable categories to randomize timbres from
  • 4-track recorder fixes for loading clips, pasting clips and AudioPaste
  • 4-track project fixes for save/load/delete/share
  • 4-track now remains unlocked when not connected to network
  • Pitch bend range is now always saved with presets and correctly loads from presets when this option is active
  • Pitch and mod strips now light up with incoming MIDI
  • Hold button now more clearly show when it’s active
  • Manual MIDI CC input now ensures only numbers can be entered
  • Keyboard scale selection now doesn’t misbehave after selecting the whole tone scale
  • Preset panel is laid out more consistently
  • Resuming after interruptions from Siri now reactivates audio
  • Proper handling of large amounts of MIDI expression data, coming from alternative controllers
  • Updated built-in manual

    That’s great news, Geert! Downloading it now to try out with LinnStrument.

    Wow! I’ve been looking for such a controller for years, I’m happy now that they’re better supported by Animoog. Those controllers are not cheap, but I tend to believe that they elevate Animoog to a whole new level! 🙂

    I searched a bit on the web and wasn’t able to confirm how well (or not) Animoog works with those controllers and what are the limitations, if any. What’s your experience Geert?

    I’m seriously buying one of those controllers, but I wanna be certain Animoog really is compatible with the one I’ll end up purchasing. Thanks Geert 🙂 — Alex / Satri

      This is still work in progress v2.2.5 will have support for linear pitch bend of external controllers like LinnStrument, making those slides much more predictable. Poly-pressure can already be used to play one expression parameter per note, we’re now working on full 3D note expression support.

    Has full 3D support arrived yet?

  4. Blaize says

    I am very inspired by Geert’s work, i downloaded Model 15 as soon as saw the video with Nick Batt, I now use my Ipad in the studio! it has me rediscovering Animoog, and getting exited about buying a Linnstrument to use with it. i detail i enjoy about the Model 15 app is the rotary input option for the knobs, it work nicely with a regular stylus on Ipad air 1.

    is there any chance we could see this small feature in an Animoog update?

    • Geert Bevin says

      Sorry, I can’t comment on what might or might not come in future Animoog updates. We take note of your request though.
