• Fantastic synth! ★★★★★
    Definitely part of my top 10 synths. Very versatile and I love the actual sounds it can produce. Some synths can make good sounds, but everything in between those sounds feels useless. I mean that's probably subjective, because others may find great use out of it through some processing. But I like melodic sounds that I can play with my keyboard and Mood gives me that. Basically it's a synth I go to if I want to make sounds to use in my tracks, as opposed to just experimenting endlessly to maybe get a couple of useful sounds. For sure it's a must have. Some other nice things about it are I like how you can select keyboard range, easily expanding it or moving left/right (similar to Cubasis), haven't seen this in many synths. Preset saving is good, lets you create folders, which is a must for me. Otherwise if you have to put all your sounds into a single "User" folder, that's just not practical. Oh and LFO's... others probably already wrote about this, but yeah, you can modulate EVERYTHING with individual LFO's per knob. And LFO's implementation is the best ever. The way you can select the range, to just modulate the knob between specific positions. And once you're done, you can even move the knob to a different position and it'll keep the range but will modulate around that position now. This and ApeMatrix are my favs from this dev.

  • Amazing ★★★★★
    Sonically deep yet very straightforward to program. Having an LFO available for every single parameter will spoil you! Well, it has spoiled me.:)

  • Fantastic Synth, unfortunate AUv3 UI ★★★★★
    This is such a lovely synth, and is a joy to use in it’s standalone version. It is AUv3 compatible, but the interface switches into tabbed folder with lots of wasted space. It’s unfortunate as it makes the instrument unpleasant ANS difficult to use in an AUv3 environment.

  • Mood works great with the wind controller. ★★★★★
    No zipper noise, smooth filters, musical sounding FM. Low CPU, fantastic synth.

  • Great sounds..Lots of fun to play ★★★★★
    Classic synth with lots of modern digital synth features added in. Great sounds and lots of presets. Lots of fun to play. In its own class above the ranks of many other iOS synth apps. I have been using it since it’s release and always find it fun and fresh. I use it both standalone and as an AUv3 plug-in on tracks in the Audio Evolution DAW app on my iPhone XS Max. The app continues to have regular developer updates, including a major update just today.

  • #1 synth for Playing Live ★★★★★
    It doesn’t get any better than this app for live music, smooth controls and quality sounds make this a must have for any live keyboardist or studio. Very versatile for aspiring musicians.

  • Less a Moog emulator, more a great synth on its own ★★★★★
    Yes, the basic layout is a Minimoog. It has its own sound character, however, that is unique among the iOS synths. The additional FM section allows for some really nice bell-like overtones, and the sampler oscillator can really turn things loose. Modulate everything, and a really cool 'step sequencer'/modulator. The filter can get a little smeary especially when using polyphony, and that's my only complaint.

  • One of the best ★★★★★
    Do not hesitate like i did. Sounds awesome and a pleasure to program. You’ll dance with this synth rather than fight it, as i’ve found myself doing with other synth apps. Thx Apesoft!!
