From Our Research Team:
Vintage Heritage - Contemporary Minimoog!The Minimoog Voyager Synthesizer is a monophonic analog performance synthesizer. It incorporates virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Model D Minimoog, which was produced by Moog Music, Inc. from 1970 to 1982. It has many new additional features, including a three dimensional touch surface, MIDI IN and MIDI OUT implementation, extensive patching facilities, and a large number of new panel features.
Of the 896 user accessible presets, 704 come pre-loaded with patches from Nigel Hopkins, Brian Kehew, Will Alexander, Bernie Worrell, Drew Newmann, Amos Gaynes, Steve Dunnington, Aron Magner, Chad Hugo, Darrell Diaz, Frank Lucas, Fred Wreck, Gabrial McNair, Geoffrey Keezer, Herbie Hancock, Khari Simmons, James Lumb, Jamie Muhoberac, Joseph Rivers, Neil Palmer, Printz Board, Randy Cantor, Rick Wakeman, Mark Kline, Zon Vern Pyles, Thomas Wolf.
Additionally, V3.0 adds the following capability to the Voyager: The External Mixer knob (just right of the display panel) has a dual function that allows you to rapidly change presets as opposed to continuously punching the cursor buttons. MIDI enhancements allow you to send either 7 or 14 bit resolution from the Mod Wheel, and optionally reduces the amount of MIDI data being sent from the Touch Surface.
The signal path starts with a bank of three wide-range, high-stability voltage controlled oscillators, one noise source, and one audio preamplifier for externally-applied audio signals. The sound modifiers are two Moog filters and one stereo VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier). Modulation sources are two ADSR (Attack Decay Sustain Release) envelope generators and one multiwaveform LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator).Control devices include a 44-key keyboard with velocity and afterpressure outputs, pitch bend and modulation wheels, a three dimensional touch surface, and many control/pedal input jacks.
The Minimoog Voyager has a hinged, multi-position panel and a solid hardwood cabinet. The power supply accepts any power voltage from 100 volts to 240 volts.

by Kevin Dul from Charlotte, North CarolinaThis thing is amazing! You can easily store presets, view them on the screen, and cycle through them with ease. You can even use the pitch controls on the oscillators as arpeggiators, very helpful if ... read more [+]you're like me and like unique tones, even on monophonic instruments. There really isn't a whole lot of need for CV expansion, unless you personally feel you want to experience a modular like synth. So many different tones can be birthed by being able to use more than one oscillator at once! But my personal favorite feature is the mod wheel, you can dial in some super filthy bass tones and use the filters to wobble them with ease, instead of having to twist a knob! But if you were to have to twist one of these knobs live, they (well, at least those pitch ones I spoke of for arpeggiating) easily click to the next setting, so this thing is really crafted to perfection from what I experienced. I only got to play on one for about 10 minutes, but I fell in love with it. close [-]

by goodnoize 43 from Santa Fe, NM USALong ago, as far back as the early 60's, there were Moogs, and they pretty much started everything in the way of analog synths. Musicians got bored with Hammond B3, Clavinet, and Fender Rhodes keyboar... read more [+]ds, and quickly picked up this amazing instrument to expand their creativity further. We hear Moogs on most 70's rock, MTV 80's NewWave hits, and we even hear Moogs making the sound effects of spaceships and machinery on old science fiction movies. Some of the sounds on the 60's TV show Star Trek were made with the Moog. There is nothing anywhere that can compare with the Voyager, in looks, sounds, or feel. The Moog Voyager is a genuine hands down analog synthesizer that will keep you playing it for hours. The look and feel of this synth is just too amazing! It is housed in a genuine wood cabinet, and the control panel is pure retro; old-style science-fair knobs and rocker switches, and the touch pad works on an x-y axis, and by placing different degrees of finger pressure on it, you can modulate the sounds in some pretty interesting ways. Don't be afraid of the Voyager because it is monophonic (one note at a time). When founder Robert Moog was designing the Voyager, his concept was to give a single played note the best tonal shaping capabilities possible, and if this would of been done polyphonic-wise, the architecture of the controls on the Voyager would have not been possible. The Voyager plays one note at a time, but it is a very complicated note; you can vibrate it, squiggle it, arpeggiate it, and even drone it, and more! It has three variable ocillators, two filters, and an lfo source. Also your standard pitch and mod wheels can be assigned from two modulation sources, and there is a digital lcd screen with 7 banks of 127 presets each, which can all be edited and saved to users. The Voyager sounds thick and creamy, Pure Analog pleasure! Basses, leads, Frampton guitar talk box, wah wahs, and weird sounding special fx can be played on it, and if you need more, you can run an external sound source in stereo into it and modulate it like a fourth ocillator. I tried playing a cd with techno beats through the external ins, and I got some amazing sounds. And if you really wanna' have full sound building cspability of the Voyager, then go ahead and buy the optional VX-351 patch bay, and this will allow you to assign modulation sources to destinations with patch cords, just like the Moogs worked in the 60's! This synthesizer is a beautiful hand-built, boutique instrument, and all the famous music greats from Joe Walsh to Jordan Rudis play a Voyager. It has been used on more records than any other synth in the world. Roger O'Donnell keyboardist for "The Cure" recently released a solo album, playing every song on it with just one Voyager synth. The album is called "The Truth In Me". The Moog Voyager is a piece of analog history, available to us in modern times. If you enjoy playing analog or digital keyboard synthesizers your recordings and stage performances will take on a whole new life with one of these. You owe it to yourself to buy a Voyager! close [-]

The Minimoog is arguably the de facto standard by which all analog synths are measured. There's just no substitute for the real thing, and Moog's classic 3-oscillator design and unmistakable filters are as real as it gets.

The XYA touch surface is a welcome addition allowing for even more creative variety from the monophonic Voyager. As in years past, the new Moog maintains its namesake tradition of classic soundscapes limited only to the imagination of the composer. From the depths of hades to the outer limits of ethereal environments and all points in between, A tradition has grown and a legacy has been solidified. And the wheels light up blue. close [-]
