  5. Mogees
10e Branch Place N1 5PH, London

Turn a tree into a harp. Turn a table into a drumkit. Turn a chair into a MIDI controller. Mogees gives you an entire world of new creative possibilities and is now available on the market!
Mogees combines a vibration sensor with intelligent music software, transforming any object around you into a unique musical instrument.
The Mogees sensor is a high quality contact microphone that captures every vibration you create as you play any object. It is also the first ever to be designed to work with smartphones as well as with standard audio equipment and computers using our custom Mogees adapter.
The Mogees app is compatible with most Apple devices running iOS 8 and above
This includes:
iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, 6, 6 Plus, 6S
iPad 2, 3, 4
iPad Air, Mini, Mini 2.

Please note that iPhone 4S and iPod touch 5th Generation are not compatible.

The Mogees software is also available as VST/AU plugin for Mac OS X 10.7 and above, and soon for Windows PC in order to run Mogees in any digital audio workstation such as Live, Logic, Cubase etc.


Gesture recognition
The sensor detects the vibrations you create when touching the physical object and send them to the Mogees software, which will detect the audio frequencies generated by your gesture and will tune the sound of your instrument accordingly in real-time.
The most unique feature is that the software can learn a series of different 'gestures' recorded by the users, such as taps or scratches and recognise them during performance.
Each gesture you record can be either associated to MIDI notes, samples or one of our growing collection of Mogees sound engines, specially designed to allow fine grain control over synthesis parameters with your gestures.

Sound engines
Four Mogees sound engines are already available in the app and more will be added soon.

• Muon: a physical modelling re-synthesiser. Every acoustic sound in the real world is created by an impact of two bodies: a resonator (for example the string of a guitar) and an exciter (for example a plectrum). With Muon it is possible to emulate the sound of a variety of resonators made of different materials, where the exciter becomes any sound captured by the Mogees sensor.
• Interpol808 : a classic drum machine emulator;
• Blue Steel : a complex Karplus-Strong steel string resonator;
• Foxtrot : a retro-electro percussive drum synth.

Midi compatibility
MIDI is the universal language of digital music. Through MIDI, you can fully integrate Mogees with other audio gear.
Sync Mogees with your existing tracks: every MIDI note and parameter of the sounds you associate to your gestures can be automated from your sequencer. For example you can associate a thumb tap with a bass synth and its notes will change accordingly on where you are in the song.
Turn anything into a MIDI controller. Your gestures can trigger different MIDI notes with velocity and control any synth or effect. Control a reverb effect by hitting the side of a drum. Trigger a sound by tapping on the body of your guitar. Play your favourite drum samples by tapping different parts of a table.

The VST/AU plugin
The plugin contains all of the features from the Mogees iOS App including 4 diverse sound engines an intelligent real time gesture recognition, and extends its capabilities for use within the studio or on stage. The Plugin features full MIDI integration from inside all popular DAWs like Ableton Live, Logic, Garageband and many others. You can connect multiple Mogees sensors to your audio interface and run many instances of the plugin at the same time.
