OVERVIEW

A host of features previously found only on massive modular synthesizers.

Created in tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Minimoog, the Minimoog Voyager XL is a sonic dynamo that celebrates major landmarks in the Moog synthesizer heritage. The Voyager XL begins with the core of a Minimoog Model D, utilizing the fat oscillators and rich Moog filters to give you that undeniable Moog sound. The user-friendly interface design and substantial construction instantly relay the Voyager XL™s quality and value.The Moog Minimoog Voyager XL receives its 100% analog signal path with stable oscillators from the current Voyager line as well as touch surface, patch storage, pot mapping and wide-ranging MIDI control operation. With the addition of a ribbon controller and a 61-note keyboard the Voyager XL becomes an enormous analog monosynth that is the result of 40 years of sonic discovery. Essentially all of the Minimoog Model D and Voyager functions and sound resources have been integrated into the Moog Minimoog Voyager XL. The considerable front-panel patchability from the first innovative Moog modular synths, and a vast array of features that in the past were only found on massive modular synthesizers come together with up-to-the-minute analog technology to give you the ultimate in sound design and control.

FEATURES
  • Incorporates virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Minimoog Model D and Voyager

SPECIFICATIONS

Minimoog Voyager XL

  • 100% Analog Sound Engine
    61-note velocity sensitive keyboard with after-pressure (identical to the Voyager 44-note keyboard)
    Ribbon Controller: 500mm, it's center-point is lined up with 'middle-C' of the 61-note Keyboard. Outputs are sampled and available as CV-OUT (-5V to +5V) and GATE-OUT (0V to +5V)

    20 Control Voltage outputs:
    - Keyboard Pitch (w/ internal trim to calibrate to 1 V/Octave)
    - Keyboard Velocity
    - Keyboard Afterpressure
    - Touch Surface X
    - Touch Surface Y
    - Touch Surface A (area)
    - Pitch Bend Wheel
    - Mod Wheel
    - MOD 1 signal (signal at MOD 1 input)
    - MOD 2 signal (signal at MOD 2 input)
    - LFO triangle wave
    - LFO square wave
    - Mod Wheel Mod Buss output
    - Pedal/On Mod Buss output
    - Filter Envelope
    - Volume envelope
    - Sample and Hold Step
    - Sample and Hold Smooth
    - Noise
    - Ribbon Controller CV Output (-5V to +5V)

    3 Gate outputs:
    - Keyboard Gate
    - Touch Surface Gate
    - Ribbon Controller Gate Output

    3 x 4-way Mults (top jack is ring-powered)

    10 Control Voltage Inputs:
    - Envelope Rate CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - OSC Pitch CV (adj. to 1V/Octave) (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - OSC Wave CV (all three osc. affected) ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - FILTER Cutoff CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - VCA Volume CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - VCA Pan CV (-2.5V to +2.5V) Ring-Powered
    - LFO Rate CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - MOD Mod1 CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - MOD Mod2 CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
    - S&H CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered

    4 Gate Inputs:
    - ENV Release ON/OFF (0V OFF, +5V ON)
    - ENV Gate Input (0V OFF, +5V ON)
    - LFO Sync ON/OFF (0V OFF, +5V ON)
    - S&H Gate Input (0V OFF, +5V ON) No footswitch input

    2 Active Attenuators: Active Attenuators are identical to the VX-352 attenuators with the following difference:

    - Channel 1 is normalled to LFO 2 output. So, if nothing is connected to the Channel 1 input jack, the output of Channel 1 will be the attenuated version of the LFO 2 output
    - Channel 2 is normalled to RIBBON output. So, if nothing is connected to the Channel 2 input jack, the output of Channel 2 will be the attenuated version of the ribbon controller
    Expression pedals can be connected to the Attenuator inputs (i.e. they are ring-powered inputs)
    AMOUNT controls gain of -1 (CCW) to 1 (CW). Thus, the attenuators can create an inverted version of the waveform
    OFFSET control allows you to add a DC voltage of -5V to +5V to the input signal. The Attenuator output will be clipped to approximately +/-10V.

    Four-Input Mixer:
    - Inputs 1 and 2 can be attenuated via front-panel knobs
    - Inputs 1 and 3 can be controlled by Expression Pedals (i.e. ring-powered)
    - Two output CV's (+) and (-)
    - DC offset can be added to signal via OFFSET knob
    - Overall output of MIXER can be adjusted via the MASTER knob

    Lag Processor:
    RISE and FALL time constants are adjustable from 1 millisecond to 1 second (middle is 100 millisecond).

    LFO 2:
    A MIDI-syncable second LFO source has been added to the Voyager XL. The default frequency range is 0.02Hz (50 seconds) to 20Hz (0.05 seconds). This range was made to augment the current Voyager LFO which does not go slow-enough for some very slow modulations.

    Inputs: LFO 2 can be:
    - Free-running (adjusted by the RATE knob on the front panel)
    - MIDI SYNC from external MIDI clock
    - Directly CLOCKED from a GATE CV via the front panel CLOCK jack
    - Controlled via external CV or Expression Pedal via the front panel RATE CV jack

    Outputs: LFO 2 has two complementary LFO outputs labeled (+) and (-). In default mode, these are the same waveform 180 degrees out of phase.

    Available front-panel waveforms:
    - Triangle
    - Square
    - Ramp
    - Saw
    - Sample & Hold
    - Sample & Hold Smooth

    Power:
    Power input accepts a standard power cable. The Minimoog Voyager XL works from 100-250 VAC, 50-60 Hz

Comments about Minimoog Voyager XL:

I simply had to get my hands on this Moog. Yes she is big, heavy and has no special features like arp's or a sequencer, but to be honest, she is a great synth to work on, compose on, mess around, great sounds..need I say more. It has that Sound, it has the heritage, it has really good build quality, Keyboard could be better, but plays well enough. Vel Sensitive and aftertouch make it a very playable Synth.

Anyone not loving or liking this synth either has never played one or just doesn't like Moog, each to their own.

Anyone interested in starting out with money to burn, then get this and add on with whatever you need. Its a great Synth.

Comments about Minimoog Voyager XL:

I purchased this synthesizer about 3 months ago and I was really let down by what I had received. Moog has GREAT products and this is by far the WORST one that I've encountered. I've toured with Big Chocolate, Kavinsky, Tesla Boy, Daft Punk, etc. and they all agree that this thing is a complete waste of time, material, space, electricity, and money. Please take my advice, don't buy this hunk of trash. Not only are you limited soundwise, but you are also limited space wise because of the sheer mass of this thing. Go buy a used car or something instead.
Your friend, EJ.

Moog Voyager XL

By Michael Kuk

from Louisiana

Comments about Minimoog Voyager XL:

Without question, this keyboard will not let you get bored. There is a lifetime of creation that you can muster from this instrument. It is a bit heavy, and will require a strong keyboard stand. I would also invest into a flight case, as your investment here must be protected.
This keyboard is loaded to the MAX, and this is one rig that will last you into eternity. The programming features appear to be endless.
Moog has always been known for it's "attention to detail" methods of production, and this is no exception. This is not only a powerful musical instrument, but a work of art. Pleasing to the eye, it is also well constructed and premier components are found everywhere.
Yes, it is expensive, but then again, it's American made, and the high quality cannot be matched.
