Turnkey prices, the logo and import duties

I travelled out last year to the factory to catch up with Bob, Mike and the team....brought back my Annivesary model through customs and was lucky enough not to be asked to declare. The whole reason i went out is a) I wanted to meet Bob and had previous conversations with Mike regarding getting one ...

Field Upgrade

Just for those(who like me) purchased a Version 3 field upgrade or are about to purchase one. I received my digital board 2 months ago, but due to touring and TV work, I haven't really wanted to perform a major bypass on my Voyager during a critical period. So yesterday I took out the Board from it'...

Hi Dean

Dean, I often see Voyagers for sale on Ebay...but then some of them are fake listings. Some are proper Moog users and some are companies listing on EBAY. I've got the Moog Gig bag. As long as you're safe transporting it around and don;t throw it, it's cool. I also have the SKB case too. That's alot ...

It's Normal

It's normal for the backlight to whine a little, but I can guarantee you that it doesn't make it's way onto the audio tracks. It's always going to be there because ithe backlight has to be powered. If you don't like it, you can always turn it off. 8) The Blue Backlight is a great feature in a gig si...

Turnkey Eh!....mmm let me think?

Guys and girls, Having spent alot of time flitting back and forth through Turnkeys masses of synths and gear, I get the feeling that every saleperson in the shop knows only- A) what his name is (because it says on his name tag) B) when lunchtime is near (because they disappear and if you manage to ...

Can I end the debate with a funny story?

OK, So there I was in Turnkey, London browsing ... I know that the Voyager and Moog gear are all displayed together in the same part of the store. I passed the Moogs and there was a temptation to see if anyone had popped a couple of their own edits in there( as I always do just to check that people ...

How many have Sold?

How many Voyagers have been sold.? Well I totally agree with Kevin. It's mostly Pro and working musicians that would buy the voyagers.The Voyager and all other Moogs for that matter have always been something that the owners are proud to display. Mention to someone you have a Korg,Yamaha, alesis--wh...

Ouch indeed! I can hear the tumbleweeds let alone see them

I have played many synths, bought loads and after a thread started claiming "Overpriced", I see this an ongoing debate between people who don't understand the power and craftsmanship of the Voyager and those who realise the potential of it. You buy an instrument like the Voyager and it cuts through ...

Such sad news.

I was at a loss to read of Bob's passing. His legacy will live on in Musicians such as ourselves and each time we play our Moogs, we know that Bob's spirit will always be there.. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob's family and the team at Moog Music. If there was ever a man that was put on this ea...

I picked up my Voyager from the Factory and brought it back in a soft gigbag. My flight to the UK wasn't going to be a problem because with the gigbag, it'll fit in the overhead compartment and if you flash your eyelashes at the stewardesses(or Steward :wink: ) they won't even have a problem. The in...

Jan Keyboard sounds

I have been a fan of jan's for sometime and My trusty Voyager has spent a few evenings this week trying to emulate the minimoog sounds from "the First seven days". Now that's about the time Jan was experimenting with his Mini through Amps I think. The single oscillator square/triangle Mini sound is ...

re- OS update

I'm absolutely positive Moog wouldn't ship out new voyagers with out of date Operating systems. The Moog team calibrate and updated ready for shipment. I'd suggest contacting the company you bought the voyager. They've probably had it sitting in stock for sometime. If in doubt, drop the Moog company...
