What's New

* This update fixes a mod wheel issue where it wouldn't properly respond to hardware midi controllers. It should now work as expected. Note that if it still doesn't work after installing this update, you'll need to manually map the mod wheel with "Midi Learn" — after that, it should work as expected.
* Pitch wheel can be mapped to a CC

Tabletop Ready™
The connect menu will allow you to connect iMini to Retronyms Tabletop™ app. With Tabletop™ DAW you can build an entire song.Tabletop™ is a free app for your iPAD that allows you to integrate iMini into a complete studio environment. You can use multiple instances of iMini; record your performance into a real-time sequencer; automate any of the parameters; add effects; process other modules through the iMini filters, etc. Tabletop™ also features add-ons for more effects and instruments from other 3rd party companies.


iMini is compatible with as old as iPad Mini, iPad 2, and newer. iMini supports iOS 8 and higher, including Apple's InterApp Audio.


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.

The 1971 reference of the iMini was made famous by artists and bands such as Stevie Wonder, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Keith Emerson, Devo, Jean Michel Jarre and more. We now bring the features and sound of this classic to the iOS platform.

The iMini not only recreates the look and feel of the most legendary synthesizer, it does it with unparalleled sound quality. iMini is based on the award winning Arturia Mini V software that was created in partnership with Dr. Robert Moog himself, back in 2003. Thanks to this heritage, continuous research and refinements over the years, iMini comes with amazing sound quality and a large collection of preset sounds created by top sound designers such as Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream) and Geoff Downes (Asia).

If you are an owner of the Arturia Mini V software on your Mac or PC, you can import and export sounds between your laptop or desktop Mini V and iMini.
You can also control iMini from a MIDI keyboard via CoreMIDI and integrate it into your studio or live performances.
