Description

Moog Music is incredibly honored that The Minimoog Voyager XL was voted Best Keyboard/Synthesizer by the readers of Sound On Sound magazine.

 

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. Highlights include:

 

61-Note Velocity Sensitive Keyboard with After-Pressure

 

Ribbon Controller with Pitch and Gate CV Outputs

 

Touch Surface Controller with X, Y, A and Gate Outputs

 

External Audio Input

 

Effects Loop Insert

 

2 Active Attenuators

 

4-Input CV Mixer

 

Lag Processor

 

Additional LFO Source with Multiple MIDI-Syncable Waveforms

 

3 Four-Way Mults

 

20 Control Voltage Outputs

 

3 Gate Outputs

 

10 Control Voltage Inputs

 

4 Gate Inputs

 

2 Modulation Busses

Specifications

Minimoog Voyager XL

 

100% Analog Sound Engine

 

The MINIMOOG VOYAGER XL Synthesizer is a monophonic analog performance and production synthesizer. Based on the Minimoog Voyager sound engine, it incorporates virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Minimoog Model D and Voyager, with the addition of a number of exciting features from Moog's modular synthesizer legacy.

 

 

Keyboard

 

61-Note Velocity Sensitive Keyboard with after-pressure. Identical to the Voyager 44-note keyboard.

 

 

Ribbon Controller

 

A 500mm Ribbon Controller is located on the middle wooden rail of the Voyager XL. 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).

(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.

 

WAVEFORMS

 

Available front-panel waveforms:

 

- TRIANGLE

- SQUARE

- RAMP

- SAW

- S&H

- S&H SMOOTH

 

 

Power

 

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

 

12V Lamp

The TNC Lamp Socket provides 12VDC for a gooseneck lamp.
