Arturia, creators of renowned software sythesizers, announced the release of the iMini iPad app. With the release, they also announced that a portion of each sale of the iMini will be donated to the Bob Moog Foundation.  The donation will assist the Bob Moog Foundation in achieving  our mission to ignite creativity at the intersection of music, science, history, and innovation. A portion of this funding will directly support our educational initiative, Dr Bob’s SoundSchool, which teaches children the science of sound through the magic of music.

Frédéric Brun, Arturia’s President, says: “We are delighted to donate to  the Bob Moog Foundation and acknowledge our gratitude to Robert Moog, who helped us when we released our first virtual instrument, the Modular Moog V, back in 2003. We are also thrilled to work with Retronyms, a great company and a force to be reckoned with when it comes to iOS.”

The iMini is based on the TAE® (True Analog Emulation) synthesis technology found in Arturia’s award-winning Mini V soft synth, meticulously modelling the distinctive tones and analog nuances of the legendary Seventies-vintage Minimoog™ Model D monosynth.

There’s a whole lot more to the iMini than first meets the eye, so be sure to get your vintage analog fix on the iPad while supporting the Bob Moog Foundation!

This is not the first time that Arturia has supported the Bob Moog Foundation. In 2011 the company released Dr. Bob’s Collector Pack, a combination of their Modular V and Mini V software, plus an exclusive booklet exploring Bob Moog’s archives, the Moog documentary, and a commemorative pin. A portion of the proceeds from Dr. Bob’s Collector Pack was donated to the Foundation. We are grateful for Arturia’s ongoing support.
