Moog Music Releases Filtatron App for iPhone/iPad

Unless you're living under a rock, chances are good you've probably caught wind of some of the hype around Moog Music's first foray into the world of iPhone apps. Filtatron is a digitally modeled Moog ladder filter, effects engine, and sample player. Here's what they have to say:

"Key Features:

Moog Ladder Filter – Four pole resonant Moog Ladder Filter, with Lowpass and Highpass modes and adjustable cutoff and resonance parameters.

Oscillator – A high-resolution, alias-free DSP oscillator with sawtooth and square waveforms, adjustable frequency from 0.3 Hz to 2kHz.

LFO – Five waveforms: sine, ramp, sawtooth, square, sample & hold, with crossfade and morph between adjacent LFO shapes.

Envelope Follower – Uses the volume envelope of sound inputs to sweep the filter, with controls for amount and speed.

Amp and Delay FX Modules – Amp provides warm, smooth overdrive with feedback control. Delay can be modulated by its own LFO (with rate and depth controls) and delay time is smoothly interpolated for analog-style delay time tweaks.

File Sharing – Easily move audio files back and forth between the Filtatron and your computer. Audio Copy and Audio Paste enables sharing audio between the Filtatron and other compatible apps. Built-in email function allows sharing presets with other Filtatron users.

Record and Playback – All audio processed in stereo, 16bit, 44.1kHz resolution. Filtatron will record samples up to 10MB. Tap and Drag sets start and end points for seamless looping. Playback control can be adjusted from double-speed playback all the way down through zero to double-speed reverse. "

Filtatron retails for $4.99

Just bought it... and have been playing around with it a bit. So far I must say I'm quite positively impressed with the app, for the little money you get quite a usable array of software effects, and the iPhone adds that kind of lo-fi feeling to it, with its noisy inputs and outputs. At least that's the case with mine, but I also use a DIY interface to get audio in and out.
I might report back as soon as I've played with it a bit more...
