Thanks to animoog.org user ‘Jagged Doctrine’ who pointed out in a comment on the expansion packs page that the free presets from Airplane Shadow were not accessible anymore. I contacted Jeremy Lewis, aka Airplane Shadow, and he allowed me to host his free presets right here on Animoog.org for the benefits of all Animoog enthusiasts. You can download the 74 free presets here. Amongst the next steps, I’ll need to update the expansion packs page accordingly… meanwhile, enjoy the presets! Thanks Jeremy :-)
On my recently-released free Animoog solos album, I used one of Airplane Shadow’s presets, named ‘Horizontalist’, here’s the track (best with high-end headphones):
Here’s the 3 original YouTube videos that shows Airplane Shadow’s presets:
What’s also newsworthy is the addition of 65 Theremini presets graciously provided by Synthguy and made available on that page. Thanks to the official Theremini Advanced Software Editor app, we can expect the community of Theremini players to create numerous interesting Theremini presets.
« 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.
