History, Tradition and Innovation

iMini is a recreation of the classic 1971 MiniMg™* synthesizer, one of most iconic synthesziers of all time.

iMini is a recreation of Dr. Bob Moog’s classic 1970 synthesizer, possibly the most famous synthesizer of all time. Based on the TAE® technology found in our award-winning mini V software, iMini offers a level of sound quality never before found on the iPad as well as over 500 sounds by leading sound designers.

To support Bob Moog's legacy, we are donating a portion of each sale to the Bob Moog Foundation to support their work in science and music education via Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, their work to preserve, protect and share Bob Moog's archives.

A Classic

iMini provides the familiar interface of its classic namesake, but we didn’t stop there. We added the unique flavor that people have come to expect from Arturia. A viewable keyboard control panel allows you to set octaves, scales, envelope modes and other parameters. The Performance mode gives you access to a multifunction arpeggiator and two assignable XY pads that provide real-time control over your sound. The Effects mode offers a very flexible, high-quality chorus and analog delay.

Think and Work
Outside the Box

iMini offers full MIDI mapping and supports WIST sync with other iOS devices. Its presets are compatible with our desktop mini V software for Mac and PC, which gives you the ability to work remotely with the iPad and then import your work into your studio DAW to give your music that final polish.

TBut you don’t have to go outside the iPad® to create killer tracks! iMini works within Retronyms’ amazing Tabletop™ application, which allows you to integrate iMini within a studio of drum machines, sequencers, mixers and effects, all inside your iPad.
