Designed in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Minimoog, the Minimoog Voyager XL is a sonic powerhouse that pays homage to important milestones in the Moog synthesizer legacy. It starts with the heart of a Minimoog Model D. Fat oscillators and warm Moog filters give it that unmistakable Moog sound and the rugged construction and intuitive user interface design immediately tells you that you're playing a high-quality musical instrument.

From the current Voyager lineage, the XL inherits a 100% analog signal path with stable oscillators, patch storage, touch surface, pot mapping and extensive MIDI control functionality. To all this, add a ribbon controller and 61 note keyboard and you have a monster analog monosynth built on a 40-year legacy of sonic exploration.

Incorporating virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Minimoog Model D and Voyager, The Minimoog Voyager XL features extensive front-panel patchability that harkens back to the original ground-breaking Moog modular synthesizers. A host of features previously found only on massive modular synthesizers combined with state-of-the-art analog technology make it a sound design and control dream machine.

    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 2 signal (signal at MOD 2 input)
    - LFO triangle wave
    - LFO square wave
    - Mod Wheel Mod Buss output

    - Filter Envelope
    - Volume envelope
    - Sample and Hold Step

    - 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

    - 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 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

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.
