I have to admit that I’m a sucker for a case. I love them. They’re fantastic things and in my mind sort of complete the instrument. Now this looks amazing. Not just a case but a way to transport all those lovely little instrument boxes all in one place.
I’m going to seriously consider this. Go take a look, but be warned, you’ll probably end up wanting one of these.
Always great to see an update to such a great app ass Animoog. Here’s what’s new:
- Fully optimized graphics, keyboard layout and interaction for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro
- Support for Apple Pencil pressure on the keyboard
- Support for Apple Pencil angle as a ‘pencil-angle’ modulation control on the keyboard
- Support for Apple Pencil angle as a ‘path-width’ modulation source along the path
- Support for Bluetooth LE MIDI devices
- Support for MPE input with note-per-channel MIDI controllers
- Added collapsible Inter-App Audio transport bar
- Consolidated ‘poly-pressure’ and ‘chan-pressure’ into one ‘pressure’ modulation source
- The vertical position of the keys on initial touch is now used as the ‘velocity’ modulation source
- Left and right tapping next to the scale slider will now transpose octaves down and up
- Timbres panel improvements to make sound design easier
- Single-tapping a timbre on the left panel now highlights it, while double-tapping scrolls to its location in the Timbres list
- The Timbres list on the right panel is no longer collapsed when switching presets
- Values of CC mapped controls are now sent out at preset changes
- Incoming MIDI CC 120 now turns off all active sound
- Incoming MIDI RPN 0 now sets the active pitch bend range
- Minor user experience improvements when working with modal dialogs
- Settings are now saved immediately when changes occur
- Fixes to timbre list where auto-scroll would overshoot at times
- Fixes to some built-in scale definitions
Animoog now requires iOS 8.2 or later.

Many people have asked me the question, “when is BM3 going to arrive?”. And why wouldn’t you ask. BeatMaker, both one and two have been stalwarts of the iOS music world since almost the very beginning. Both have been extensively used and relied on by artists all over the world. So it’s a good question, and one that Intua have now answered.
BM3 will be released before the end of this year. Intua say that they are confident of this on the front page of their site. It’s good to know. It’s good to look forward to as well, and I’m sure that it’ll be eminently worth the wait.
