In the 1970s, popular music was at its height of creativity and innovation, and a lot of it had to do with the innovative genius of Bob Moog. When his Minimoog monophonic analog synthesizer was released in 1970, it soon became a live staple for countless recording artists during that decade, including Keith Emerson of ELO and Ralf Hutter of Kraftwerk. Today, adventurous musicians have the honor of enjoying an updated version of the Minimoog known as the Voyager. Designed by Bob Moog himself in 2002, the Voyager is now considered to be the definite American synthesizer, and in this section you'll find plenty to choose from.
So which Moog Voyager is right for you? That can be best decided by exploring each of your options more closely. For now, let's take a look at the Voyager Performance Edition. A scaled down version of the legendary Minimoog, this compact powerhouse is a handcrafted, monotimbral high performance instrument with a stunning dynamic range. Along with a 44-key Fatar keyboard with velocity and after-pressure outputs, pitch bend and modulation wheels, other upgrades include a three dimensional touch surface, MIDI IN and MIDI OUT implementation, and much more. Housed in a rugged steel chassis, the Voyager Performance Edition will tap into your imagination in ways you never thought possible.
Or maybe you're after something even larger - in which case, feast your eyes on the Tolex Minimoog Voyager XL. A killer reissue of an iconic favorite, the capabilities of this monster will leave you stunned. In fact, the Voyager XL faithfully produces some of the most important sounds from the Moog synthesizer legacy. From crunching synth basses to soaring leads and captivating strings, this synth is a modern classic that combines state-of-the-art technology with a host of features that harken back to the original ground-breaking Moog models.
But don't stop at those two items. There are plenty of other top-rated choices that are worthy of your attention in this catalog, including the Control Voltage Expander, and the Voyager Electric Blue Analog Synthesizer. Whatever Moog Voyager you choose, you'll realize quickly that the possibilities have no end in sight - of course, it's for this reason why the Moog name has been so respected amongst musicians since the mid '60s.
