How are the expansion packs for the Animoog and Minimoog? Are they worth getting?
The Animoog packs add more wavetables. So,they expand what you can do. The Minimoog patches are nice if your preference is using presets.

I like using presets. Are there any expansion packs better than one another, or should I just think of getting all of them?

I am not really sure. I am mostly a program my own kind of person and the MiniMoog is something that I spent a lot of time with. So, I haven't picked any of them up. I do have a lot of the Moog Model 15 presets and based on the quality of them and the Animoog presets, I would guess that they quality is quite good.

The model 15 looks difficult to use, is it? I thought about that one but the chords look confusing. The model d is easy to use. I have to play with the Animoog and check it out.

I got model 15, it has some pretty cool sounds in it. You have some great ideas. Any other keyboard apps I should check out?

There are so many! There is a lot of buzz about Continua from Audio Damage which was released today. I don't have it.

Shockwave is a recent and interesting synth that uses phase-distortion synthesis.

Lagrange is another well regarded synth that I don't have. I have their Kronecker and Mersenne synths. There are some good YouTube vids that I'd check out before purchasing. They are not everyone's cup of tea.

Another excellent pad synth is Digital D-1 and it includes lots of presets.

I can recommend Sugar Bytes Factory and IceGear Lagrange for those kinds of sounds, I've made some free preset packs for both these synths:

Oscillating Echoes - 20 free Ambient and Lo-Fi presets for Sugar Bytes Factory

New Adventures in Lo-Fi - 25 ambient and lo-fi presets for Icegear Lagrange

There are also a couple of really promising upcoming apps: Continua by Audio Damage and Monoke by Brambos

Thank you guys for all of your help building my arsenal. I just got Lagrange, dm-1, continua, and factory.

Thank you for all of the presets for factory and Lagrange. They are awesome sounding.

I have a little money left so I am going to find a few more to get. If you have any more ideas let me know.

DM-1 of D-1?

In case there is confusion this is the one I meant:

It was a typo on my part. It should have been the d1. Sorry about that. I just downloaded poison 202. Pretty cool. I am looking at Kylegrand pads. Any ideas on that one?
