Today we’ve got unexpected news from Arturia – their first app for iPad: iMini.
And that’s also a big day for Tabletop. Few months ago they integrated with iMPC (you can use it as internal device inside Tabletop) and with iMPC they received one of the best drum samplers. And today they launched integration with Minimoog – one of the best synths of all time reincarnation for iPad.
Let’s start with Minimoog (iMini) first.
iMini is recreation of legendary Minimoog synth. iMini is based on same technology as desktop version – Mini V.
iMini comes with fantastic sound and over 500 presets made by the top sound designers. One of the great features is that you can transfer presets between MiniV and iMini.
iMini doesn’t support Audiobus, Virtual Midi or Audiocopy (there’s no internal recoder there), there’s no sequencer there but it is Tabletop-ready. Which means that you can use Tabletop sequencer, recorder and other devices with iMini.
iMini also comes with nice effects: delay and chorus. And inside Tabletop it can be used as effect (there is audio input that can be connected with other devices) to process other sounds through fantastic moog-style filter, delay and chorus effects.
To use touch screen advantages, iMini has two XY pads that can be assigned to control most of the parameters of the synthesizer.
