I will add a little to this rant: those sliders could easily move by themselves, showing their changing values as the sounds are played (like virtual motorized faders), and come back to their set position once the sound is stopped to show the value set in memory ?

You will have guessed that I also despise those rotary knob emulation and their crappy, counter intuitive, interface.

Rant over.

Exactly. There's no reason controls on touchscreens need to be restricted by copying real world physical controls. Just look the Lemur and stuff like that.

Maybe we should form a mob and head to the Animoog forum? :)

There are many potential partners for the Voyager

Ditto.

And eventhough you only have an EP, some well choosen pedals can make pads out of it. I saw a band (don't remember if it was here or on the Elektron forum) whose trio video showed he was using a Rhodes but the sounds were some kinds of wonderful jazzy chorused seagulls...

I can say the P08 does make a nice match for the Voyager, I had an early version and upgraded it to the PE version. HOWEVER....I upgraded that to a P5 and I can swear to you that this is truly a match made in heaven! 8)

Radiohead do all sorts of ambient pad sounds with their Rhodes. Chorus, phaser, delay, reverb...

Had a dream the other night that I played a Prophet 5... That's as close to playing one as I've come. :)

Has anyone any comments on passing a P08 through the Voyager filter? I assume that wouldn't be too difficult. I'm guessing you slave (if that's the right word) the P08 so you're playing it with the V keyboard - so the filter opens/responds to whatever envelope or modulation when you press the key (is that right?) – then feed the audio out from the P08 into the external input jack pre-filter. Plus mute all the Voyager’s oscillators (or don’t!).

The only downside I see is the reduction of all the possible P08 outputs from dual stereo to mono.

So, yeah. Not a question really, just thinking aloud and inviting any thoughts.

(Thanks Kenneth, I'll watch this :) )

RestlessBoy, another drawback is the fact you'll be fine for monophonic lines, but for polyphonic stuffs, you may obtain something a bit weirder. Like a paraphonic synth, Opus 3 etc.

I thought the Voyager keyboard could be used as a polyphonic midi controller?

It can be but the p'08 is one filter per voice (8 filters) where if you run it through the voyager you get the same filter for all 8 voices. Not necessarily a bad thing just sounds different. More like the string synths of the 70's
My modular so far: Q104, Q106, Q107, Q108, Q109 x2 , Q116, Q118, Q127 w/Q140, Q130, STG Wave Folder and Encore UEG playing with Moog Voyager, VX-351, CP-251, MF-104M x2 ( STEREO!) and Yamaha RX-5
