This video, via Geert Bevin, is a quick update on what’s going on with Roger Linn’s LinnStrument, showing the responsiveness of the sensor using Animoog on the iPad.
Bevin is helping out Linn with the LinnStrument’s software.
The collection is sci-f themed, and features “the most amazing-crazy-unheard-cosmic-alien-scifi: pads, atmos & sfx.” Continue reading
Moog Music today introduced the Minimoog Model D Expansion Pack for Animoog, their software synthesizer for iOS.

The expansion pack includes 69 Timbres extracted from a vintage Minimoog Model D analog synthesizer, and 213 presets designed for Animoog’s Anisotropic Synthesis Engine. Continue reading
Reader Geert Bevin – who’s known to many readers for his performances on the Eigenharp and his gestural music control application GECO – recently spoke at TEDxTartu in Estonia. In his TEDx talk, Bevin argues that we’re entering a new age for digital musicians, driven by several trends:
- Cheap and powerful computers
- New controllers with revolutionary sensors
- New synthesis engines with per-note expression
“This talk is essentially the summary of what I’ve been working on for the past four years at Eigenlabs,” explains Bevin, “with my GECO Leap Motion software and by collaborating with Roger Linn, Steinberg, Moog and Wolfgang Palm.” Continue reading
