Animoog v1.1 is here! New features include longer recording time in the looper, categorized presets, and fully assignable MIDI cc's. In this video Moog's Product Development Specialist, Amos Gaynes, shows you how to use Animoog's new MIDI expansion packs features and explores some of the creative possibilities.
The MIDI Expansion Pack transforms Animoog into a MIDI controller as innovative and richly expressive as the Animoog sound engine itself.
The Animoog touch keyboard becomes a source for polyphonic MIDI notes with velocity and aftertouch, using Animoog's custom note scales which are saved per preset. Poly-pressure translates the dynamic of each finger movement into MIDI data, while Channel pressure ensures compatibility with the widest range of existing synthesizers. Of course the on-screen Pitch and Mod strips send Pitch Wheel and Modulation messages as well.
The keyboard MIDI output also uses a special Polyphonic Legato message, created by Moog in order to accurately record the unique playing styles made possible by Animoog's polyphonic, continuous ribbon-style keyboard. Polyphonic Legato allows you to record and play back Animoog performances while preserving expressive glides from note to note, with full polyphony. Since the performance is recorded as MIDI, you can keep tweaking the sound even after you've nailed the perfect expressive rendition of the notes.
MIDI Mapping is also expanded, with the ability to send any assignable MIDI CC messages from Animoog's on-screen controls, including the X-Y Pad. This allows you to use all of Animoog as a control surface for your plugins or external hardware. In addition, you can record and play back MIDI knob tweaks in the same way as you can a keyboard performance.
