Learn Wavetable and Vector Synthesis with this Animoog Z Course

Moog's powerful anisotropic wavetable synth is back, reborn as Animoog Z. Learn all about it in this course, and discover new concepts of multidimensional sound design and performance.

A decade ago, Moog released the original Animoog app, which quickly became one of the most popular iOS synths. Using a new synthesis engine called ASE (Anisotropic Synth Engine), the Animoog offered a very unique synthesis experience by takind advantage of the touch interface of iOS devices.

Now with Animoog Z, Moog expands on the original instrument by adding a 3D XYZ touch interface for the Orbit path, more FX and more modulation capabilities.  And in addition to running on iOS devices, the app now also runs as a plugin in your DAW.

I have a library pass for ask.audio, where this article appears, but cannot access the linked course, apparently because ask.video requires it's own library pass? Is this correct? is this fair? It's obviously the same company.
