Voyager serial 2672 - which firmware did it ship with?

Post by fineline » Wed Jun 22, 2022 6:53 am

Im about to buy a Voyager Performer Edition with serial 2642. Seller shows me a video where it says v3,5 upon startup and think that refers to the software version(?).

I would really like the the version with the later firmware that can hold 7 banks. Is there a way to tell if thats possible with this particular Voyager?

From which serial did they ship with at least firmware 1,5??

The 7 bank memory was a hardware and not a software/firmware thing. SOf cause, you needed the firmaware version 3.x to use the new digital board needed.
All digital boards I ever encountered with 7 bank of patch memory were smaller and used mainly SMD versus the THS of the original single sound bank versions.

These are pictures I made many years ago when installing the 3.x hardware update myself as sold by Moog Music then.
keep on turning these Moog knobs

Sequence:
Prodigy * minimoog '79 * Voyager * MF102 * MF103 * MF104z * MP201 * Taurus 3 * Minitaur * Sub Phatty * MF105 * Minimoog 2017+ MUSE * One 16
