Minimoog Voyager - Solid Walnut w/ Lunar backlights


  • $ 3,39900


Out of production and we have just one left (serial number 1121). This Limited Edition Moog 'Select Series' Voyager comes in a stunningly beautiful solid Walnut case with Lunar backlit front panel and wheels!

The wood is solid Walnut, not an inexpensive wood that has been stained to look like Walnut. Original Minimoogs from the 1980's are absolute 'classics', but the vast majority had stained-wood cases. Only a few of the earliest Minimoogs were made with solid Walnut, and they look spectacular to this day. These new Walnut Voyager cases are even better quality than those rare, early Minimoogs. The edges are beautifully rounded; the workmanship is superb. The pictures do not show the eye-popping quality of the backlit panels. Moog had these pictures professionally shot, and as they explained, "If we got the studio lighting right for the cabinet, the backlit front panel looked washed out. If we dimmed the lights to show off the backlit panel, the wood cabinet looked too dark." The point is, the Walnut Voyagers look even better than the pictures - they really do!

The Minimoog Voyager is an all-analog monophonic synthesizer designed by Bob Moog, which features the REAL MOOG SOUND and includes extensive modulation routings, MIDI and patch storage capabilities. The warmth and fatness of the sound of this instrument is unsurpassed. Compare the sound of the Voyager to other synths. None equal its responsiveness and superlative sound!

With 3 ultra-stable analog oscillators, dual Moog filters, and the punchiest analog envelope generators, players, audio engineers, and analog synthesis aficionados will find this to be an investment that will never go out of style. With a universe of sounds lurking beneath its stunning exterior, the musician who seeks to explore the outer limits of sound will always be rewarded.

The Select Series Voyager includes Version 3 software. This extends the single bank of 128 presets to 7 banks of 128 presets for a total of 896 user accessible presets.

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 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:

- Allows you to send either 7 or 14 bit resolution from the Mod Wheel.

- Optionally reduces the amount of MIDI data being sent from the Touch Surface.

(These changes enable the Voyager to work better with older MIDI equipment.)

The MINIMOOGᆴ VOYAGER Synthesizer is a monophonic (one note at a time) 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.

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 MINIMOOGᆴ VOYAGER has a hinged, multi-position panel and a solid Walnut cabinet. The power supply accepts any power voltage from 100 volts to 240 volts.
