White Voyager XL

That looks classy with the cosmo knobs and the white rocker switches. Now if only they inverted the sharps and flats on the keyboard...

That is nice! But I can't see any controller for the illuminated panel... Does it not have that??

That right there i so nice, even with standard keys.

I agree that it needs a backlit panel (and the added pots should have been tied into the midi brain as well).

I wonder if they have that in a gold?

Just a quick tweak to get somewhat of an idea on how inverted keys would look.

The issue is moot with me because, no matter how good or bad it looks, I would never buy a $5K+ monophonic Voyager XL. I'd invest in a modular system instead. For that kind of money, you can get a very decent 44 modules portable system from Synthesizers.com, with LOTS more possibilities.

I would, however, pay $5K+ for a modern version of a polyphonic Memorymoog... :mrgreen:

Excuse me. I didn't realize that my personal opinion was up for debate. To be fair, I'm not really crazy about any of the white gear. I think the classic wood grain and black always looks best. However, if you're going to go and mess with the scheme, you may as well commit all the way with reverse keys. IMO anyway. Feel free to change my mind. :wink:

Nah inverted keys look horribly tacky.

I love these white Voyagers. I wish wish wish they'd been available in the UK when I ordered. Nova Musik never got back to me about international shipping. Thanks for nuthin!
