This is major news, mainly because it confirms that Moog has not abandoned Animoog. Animoog for iPhone’s previous update showed up 2012. Here’s what’s new in version 1.1.2 of Animoog for iPhone, officially released on August 29th, 2014:
- Full iOS 7 compatibility
- Support for iPhone 5 and all prior screen sizes
- Inter-App Audio Support
- Audiobus 2 Support
- AudioCopy 2 Support
Audiobus and Inter-App Audio (IAA) support are significant new features, meaning Animoog for iPhone can now properly be integrated with other music apps on the iPhone. IAA is Apple’s built-in solution for iOS 7 and later for audio apps to talk together and share (and real-time modification) audio tracks. Both Audiobus and IAA are widely supported by other iOS audio apps.
What’s also great is that Moog itself provided feedback in their forum, acknowledging some issues with the just released new features and pointing to another upcoming update that should soon see the light. Moog cares, and that matters.
An update for Animoog for the iPad has not hit the App Store yet, but now we can expect it any day or week. Let’s rejoice! And yes, I’ll have to update the wish list for Animoog accordingly.

This report is untrue. the update to Animoog for iPhone does not include audio bus or inter app audio compatibility. In fact the only improvement is that the screen dimensions have been adjusted to fit the iPhone 5 better. Do not waste your money!
Thanks Stephen for the feedback. You are right, some of the advertised new features don’t currently work. If you follow the link to the official Moog forum (above), you’ll see that the Animoog developer acknowledged these issues and is working on a fix.
Thus we should expect a new version soon that will actually contain what Moog announced. Hope this helps — Alex
Update: Animoog for iPhone Version 1.1.6 & iPad Version 2.2.3 both function as IAA (Inter App Audio) Instrument Nodes. There are no IAA Transports in either Versions of Animoog so you’ll need to manually open your IAA Host for a return.
Thanks Loran for the feedback. Right, IAA made it to Animoog. I should update the wish list… https://www.animoog.org/playing/wish-list/
