The Animoog is a synthesizer made by Moog Music available as an app for the iPad and iPhone. We started using this synth in 2012, and it is one of those instruments that is so powerful and yet remarkably inexpensive (considering the used price of an iPad) that, had this been available ten years ago, it would be all over our music. Its main limitation (and strength) is the control surface: great for studio use, but we've hesitated using it live because, well, if you've ever tried to use an iPhone after it's been in contact with a sweaty ear, you can imagine the possible issues in a live situation. It's still incredible technology. We're not sure what the Anisotropic Synth Engine does, but we'll be using it more in the future.
