Rejoice! Zen Lizard announced its 30 free presets for Animoog.
« Resonant basses & cutting leads take full advantage of the highly playable keyboard and sound fantastic. Completely free for everyone! »
These great news required me to proceed with the first update to the recently introduced list of Expansion Packs for Animoog, now at version 1.1., where you’ll find plenty other sources of free presets for our beloved instrument. There were several improvements to the list, including the addition of Moog’s BASE Pack which was missing from the initial release of the table. Thanks to an anonymous user comment , we now have the associated URLs for this BASE Pack.
If you’re aware of other sources of free presets or would like to share corrections, please let me know! Enjoy the new Altermoog presets!
Would you believe that expansion packs provide over 1,300 new presets and over 4,700 new timbres for you to play with in Animoog? Here’s significant value on Animoog.org for Animoog users – an exhaustive list of Animoog expansion packs documentation. Why it’s useful?
« Lots of expansion packs can be purchased and installed directly from within the Animoog app under the ‘STORE’ tab, however, several high-quality presets and timbres are not available from within the app itself — that’s the value of the following table, to help us find those valuable gems no matter where they hide! »
Instead of copying the whole new page, just take a look at it. It’s far from what I had in mind initially, but what matters is that it exists now, and thanks to community contributions, I hope it’s going to dramatically improve over time!
The new table is available as a png, a pdf and as an interactive table. The content of the table is also available on Github. As usual, any contribution is welcomed.
Other recent updates on Animoog.org
There were also a few other significant improvements to the site, such as more precise Welcome page indicating what is actually available on the site vs what is planned. I also added a new section in the Animoog improvements wish list regarding inter-app connectivity.
Take care! — Alex, aka Satri
I wasn’t planning to spend time on documenting Animoog timbres before addressing expansion packs and presets… but an unexpected pleasant surprise over the Moog Forums led me to share with you Adventure Kid’s 4,300 free timbres now converted for Animoog and available under a Creative Commons license.
Head to the new Timbres page for the download links and all the details.
Are we ready to launch? No. But this has to happen at some point in time, and this is now.
There are hundreds and hundreds of Animoog presets and timbres. There are also plenty of expansion packs, some of them are not available for purchase from within the app and are very difficult to find if no one tells you about them. The intention behind Animoog.org is to help Animoog users and fans to find information about presets, expansion packs and everything Animoog. The database and site is mostly empty at the moment. Content sections will be improved and launched in the coming weeks / months as time permits — and with some of your help, we’ll make it useful much quicker.
The objective is to use crowdsourcing to gather information about Animoog’s content. Just like anyone can improve Wikipedia, anyone is welcomed to contribute to Animoog.org. The more users contribute, the better the content will become. Specifically, documentation of Animoog presets and expansion packs, to start with, is stored in openly-licensed Database — meaning the content will forever legally remain available to everyone at no cost.
And there’s more! You’ll find the Animoog Users Map, mainly for fun and to feel part of the community, you’ll find Animoog users and players in your area, Moog shops and events, etc. Add yourself to the map with a few clicks! On this site, you’ll also find what can be expected, such as tips, a blog, pertinent links, and even a wish list for Animoog. You can also stay in touch with Animoog.org via Twitter and Facebook.
So, this is just the beginning. Ideas and suggestions are always welcomed. If you’d like to contribute to this Animoog community, drop me a line, the content will improve much faster with contributions from fellow Animoog enthusiasts :-)
