The following instruments will be available when LUNA launches:

• Moog Minimoog, an official 1971 Moog synthesizer emulator
• Ravel grand piano, modeled after the Steinway Model B grand piano
• Shape, a toolset for producing music using keys, drums/percussion, guitar/bass, orchestral content, and real time synthesis

LUNA Recording system will be releasing exclusively for Small macOS iconmacOS and is currently aiming for a spring 2020 release (somewhere between March 19th, 2020 and June 20th, 2020). It'll be freely available for Apollo and Arrow Thunderbolt audio interface owners. More information on LUNA can be found at
