Moog has announced that the Animoog Synthesizer app is now available for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone. Previously only available on iOS, Animoog is Moog's first music creation tool for the BlackBerry platform.
From May 16th through May 23rd (the date that would be Bob Moog's 79th birthday), Animoog will be available on the BlackBerry World storefront for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone at an introductory price of $.99. After this promotional period ends, Animoog will return to its regular price of $9.99.
Powered by Moog's Anisotropic Synthesis Engine, Animoog allows you to move dynamically through an X/Y space of unique timbres. This creates a constantly evolving and expressive soundscape that is unlike any other musical instrument. Use the built in recorder as a canvas for your creativity or call up a preset and simply enjoy a whole new world of musical creativity at your fingertips. Play a chord and add motion to each note independently, add vibrato while sweeping through a filter in one simple motion, and quickly sculpt dynamic sounds that live, breathe, and evolve as you play.
"We are very excited about the release of Animoog on the BlackBerry 10 platform and about our relationship with BlackBerry," said Mike Adams, President and CEO of Moog Music, Inc. "BlackBerry has long been the choice for business professionals who in many cases are in creative fields. Now, for the first time, we can offer a high performance music creation tool to artists and synthesizer enthusiasts that prefer BlackBerry," said Adams.
"Moog is a long time iconic brand in the music industry and their synthesizers are used by major artists worldwide," said Martyn Mallick, VP of Global Alliances and Business Development at BlackBerry. "We are thrilled to have Animoog available on the BlackBerry 10 platform".
"This project is the beginning of a collaboration with BlackBerry's innovative user experience team and an exploration of new means for creative expression with handheld devices. It is always our intention to create better tools for artists and this relationship allows us to investigate exciting future possibilities," said Emmy Parker, Moog's Senior Brand Manager.
