To celebrate the release of Animoog on BlackBerry, all of Moog's iOS apps are on sale now for half off!
Here is the promotional video for the new BlackBerry app.
He has some big news and some giveaways! Perhaps of greatest interest to readers here is the discontinuation of the iOS Subscriber service, which Fletcher worried was not providing members enough content. Existing members will have their service extended for a full year, so if you jumped on that while it was available you just got a big boost!
For those of you fearful that I was monopolizing him to make boutique hardware instead of iOS goodies, he has this message:
Beyond that, I know a few people have been keeping a wary eye on Sunsine because of the foray into hardware effects, and the apparent lack of iOS related material. Never fear! I was bogged down in R&D and figuring out the manufacturing end, retail, etc. but am back in full swing working on new sounds, finishing up almost completed packs, and making videos. Look out for new sounds very soon, some more sneaky goodies, and more exciting collaborations. My inbox is always open, stop by sometime and say hi. Here's hoping this year is even better than the first! Cheers and thank you all!
To celebrate, Fletcher has made the Sunrizer Sunrise Vol. 1 and Crystal XT Chrysalis Vol. 1 packs available for free. Customers who previously purchased these packs, and iOS Subscription service members, will be receiving coupons via email.

I know many people are excited about the re-release of Korg's famous MS-20 monophonic synthesizer. I've been able to resist the temptation of purchasing it because the iMS-20 iPad app sounds so damn good, and has presets, but I still enjoyed watching Marc Doty's recent video series on the new MS-20 Mini.
For those that don't know Marc, his videos on the Automatic Gainsay channel are full of personality and expertise. With Trent Reznor's good looks and Liza Minnelli's Xanax prescription, he has been an inspiring and fun educator to many synthesists. In fact, his original MS-20 videos were how I first learned to use the iMS-20 app!
If you do decide to purchase the new MS-20 Mini it is available now from Sweetwater for $600. I don't have any referral deals with them, but I buy my gear from Sweetwater because they have continued to support the iOS community, for nearly a year, with their iOS Update video series.
Embedded here is the whole playlist of Korg MS-20 Mini videos. That is 2 hours of synth goodness to watch over the weekend! If you're already familiar with the iMS-20 app, or my own iMS-20 series, you can probably skip ahead to the 8th video where things start to get more advanced.
Drone synth DR-OM joins his brother Noisemusick on Audiobus, along with iTablaPro.
iTablaPro is prohibitively priced, so it doesn't get a lot of attention, but it sounds great! It is also one of the oldest professional music apps on iOS and is still regularly updated. Here is a demo by Palm Sounds' Ashley Elsdon from way back in 2010!
YouTuber Antonio Lentini uploaded this nice sounding Deep House Mix. Unlike a lot of Traktor DJing he keeps this mix very mellow without going crazy on the effects. Antonio is using Reflector so the video quality is great, but you can't see his finger presses.
