Effect: Moog - Filtatron iPhone app

Moog unveils the Filtatron iPhone app, a real-time audio effects engine and studio tool.

"PRESS RELEASE: Moog Music today announced Filtatron, a real-time audio effects engine and powerful studio tool coming soon for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The heart of the Filtatron is a finely-modeled Moog Ladder Filter, the same filter that gives Moog instruments their warm, thick character. It musically shapes the sounds supplied by the Filtatron's on-board oscillator, sampler and line/microphone input.

Filtatron is much more than your average sound app. Its Multi-Touch Pads are an intuitive performance interface and provide hands-on control of all major sound-sculpting parameters. There is no stopping your creativity with that much control at your fingertips.

'Filtatron represents the first time that the signature Moog sound is available outside of a high-end, hand-made Moog synthesizer,' said Mike Adams, president of Moog Music. 'This powerful app extends the studio capabilities of traditional Moog users, and also provides music enthusiasts and Moog fans a fantastic way to create and share their personalized presets. All for a price that makes the Moog sound accessible to a wide audience.'

Filtatron comes loaded with edgy presets that kick-start your sound explorations, running the gamut from cutting rhythms and ambient drones to out-there effects workouts. Filtatron also comes with an array of loopable samples and you can use the Sampler to record and play your own unique sounds. It contains a feature-packed effects module sporting an incredible sounding Delay, and Amp controls provide tones ranging from warm analog overdrive to extreme distortion.

Filtatron will be available October 18, 2010 for the iPhone and iPod Touch for $4.99."
