Let's Play with Mood

I jump at all apeSoft apps, but I was especially excited to try out Mood. I was in as soon as I heard the Moog Model D style synthesis, but what I've spent most of my time playing with is the extra added bonuses apeSoft has added to the formula. Both Granular and FM synthesis are available in a nice tight package, and all running right next to the classic Subtractive synthesis. I play the hell out of it in this Let's Play!

Contest: I have 2 copies of Mood to give away! This article is a contest post. Since this is also a Patron Timed Exclusive, I'll wait to close the contest on Saturday morning so everyone will be able to see it and enter Friday. Patrons can comment here to join the contest early, but that does not increase your chances to win.

Contest closed! Congratulations to Charlie, and deezign!

Video Description:

Mood is a re-imaging of the classic Moog Model D. Rather than emulating the original hardware faithfully, this takes things much further! In this Let's Play I'm exploring both the standard and non-standard features of the app. If you enjoyed this please consider supporting this series by sponsoring them on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/discchord If you'd prefer to help on a monthly basis, instead of per video, there is a new monthly Patreon campaign: https://www.patreon.com/discchord_com

Sadly, I can't watch right now, but I'm looking forward to it!
Looks cool. Sample mangler+synthesis...hard to wrong with that! ;)
Cool things, Tim (the contest and the Let's Play).

I have the synth, it's a gem...
Glad you liked it!
Whoa, this app is a lot deeper than I realized. The let's play vid is great, really enjoyed it.
Cool as always Tim!! Thanks.

Baffling it is not, which is always a good thing for making great sounds. Would love to win.

Very cool. Thank you. I've watched any mood videos I can find and yours pushed the app to the top of my "to purchase next" list. Just when I started to foolishly think fresh approaches to apps were lagging this year a bit...awaiting bm3

great sounding synth - not sure if I need it but if I won a copy I'm sure I'd find a use...
Count me in for the competition. Too much going on atm for my poor wallet to keep up.
Such a great app and great demo.
apeSoft did it again!
Thanks for the video Tim. Always appreciated to hear some sound demos of new apps.

Have not used an app of theirs before, so looking forward to seeing more use of it :)
Yes Please, Mood + Dub Samples = Irie! (((Space)))

It says: Please confirm the email address. But I've already done that, I think.

A lot of apps I purchased have been brought to light through
Your Website.
The inclusion of the Soundtest Room for doing reviews has helped me
in final purchases.
I have way more knowledge from watching and listening.
Mood would be a great addition

Alright, got it now !! 😄

See my post above...I'm embarassed to admit I once bombed a test in 4th grade because the directions at the top of the test said "sign your name and turn it in." I rocked the answers to the test..just did it wrong.

I'm digging the sounds you're getting at the end, even when you said you went to far!

Tim (or others) -

In the specifications for this - can the effects be deactivated to reduce CPU load, thereby use other external effects app(s) ?

June 16, 2017  | person_outline Mick
Thanks for another great review! Have not got this one yet ..

I truly admire the way that Allesandro quietly and methodically releases quality apps, as well as all the desktop stuff too. A programming legend.

Yes! I'm not 100% sure that this means less CPU usage, but all of the effects can be deactivated individually.
Feed me, you said, and I was feeding you, Jack.

Count me in please!

I love how this still seems to have comparitively modest requirements (no need for iOS 10 or 64-bit) compared to others whilst still getting good reviews for its sound.
June 16, 2017  | person Bob
Looks like another great iOS synth.
