You absolutely like Moog’s latest iOS application named Animoog and wanna control it from your Mac but it doesn’t work and you are running iOS 5 or iOS 5.01. So at the moment it seems there is an issue in Animoog related to a modification in Apple’s CoreMidi stack. On iOS 4.3.x devices the CoreMidi connection worked.
I. On your iOS device do the following:
- I assume you already installed AniMoog, didn’t you?
- Please shutdown the AniMoog app, in case it is running. Don’t just put it into the multitasking background (or just reboot the iPad or the iPhone)
- then open the
- run Pad MIDI
- put Pad MIDI into the multitasking background
- start Animoog
II. On your Mac/HackMac/iMac/MacPro/whatever do the following:
- initiate Spotlight (click
SPACE and CMDtogether)
Audio Midi Setup
- run Audio Midi Setup
III. In Audio Midi Setup:
- go to
Window -> Midi Studio
- click the big
Networkbutton in the middle
- Click the
+) below the Directory and enter your
iOS device's IP address(
port is 5004)
activateyour iOS device (here it is “iPad”)

Cross your fingers and pray… If you put everything in order, you now have a midi connected Animoog.
What if I want to control it from the iPad itself? Should any Core MIDI app work? iPad 1 or 2 any difference?
Give it a try. We didn’t try that yet. We rather wanted to integrate the iPad into our current recording environment…
I’ve used midi monitor instead (more functionalities and free as well)
I read the connection with AniMoog works only with midi Channel 1 and in the window audio midi set up it’s important to choose the midi device your using to send the data to your IPhone.
I’ll now try to figure out what knobs work with what CC data.
at the moment. it looks like the cc support is very limited… check page 4 of the manual…
Thank you for this advice. I’ve been trying for days to connect my iTouch to Ableton running on my Macbook but to no avail. It now works perfectly and with no lagging. You are a star.
I have a Akai Syncstation25 with my iPhone.
I have Midi Bridge installed.
I have Animoog installed also.
Do you know to setup Animoog yith Syncstation25 keyboard?
I need step by step instructions aincew I’m new to this midi stuff.
