What do you store in the back of your Voyager?

Post by ColorForm2113 » Wed Jan 14, 2015 10:21 am

Just wondering if anybody stashes stuff in the back of their Voyager (or Minimoog) when the panel is propped up. Right now I have the send return cable for the mix out/filter in and some comics :D

Patch cables, the ends of the 2 long MIDI cables I have running across the room to my computer, the end of the USB extender that I have connected to the computer across the room, a splitter cable for the Voyager's FX insert. Some comic books.

In the back of my Minimoog D, there are 2 DIN MIDI plugs (yes my Mini is MIDI equipped), a quick reminder of the calibration procedure, and a lot of dust... :lol:

Not my Voyager (because it's packed away) but in my Minimoog, a reverb tank. Standard size tank fits perfectly and it's above my monitors and is otherwise (somehow) shielded from vibration and electrically quiet in there.

Some pretty great answers. EM white, that's a fantastic idea! Reverb tank is perfect back there, I wish there was a filter out vca in jack also, that would be perfect to stick in there.

My family sleep in the back as I spent the rent on moog gear.

Great topic :D

Patch cables, insert cables, midi cables, no comics.

I've been keeping mine empty since I got matching dust covers made for my two keyboards, But I use to stash an Electro Harmonix V256 Vocoder and some patch cables.

I keep the Voyager manual and a coupla printouts that I scavenged here there and elsewhere on Voyager Wizardry.

A tiny Behringer mixer and a Behringer mic pre. I have the pre in the Voyager's insert loop, a clean signal, just boosting about 15 dB, to emulate the Model D's filter drive behavior. Nothing extreme, but brings some welcome edge to the filter. And I just have to back off a bit on the oscillator mix, in order to get back the non-driven sound.

The mixer is fed the left and right outputs and just passes them on at 0 dB to a sound card or PA, but I route a mono send (from both Voyager channels) into the Voyager's external input. I find that feeding back a mono mix of the Voyager's stereo output is a better and more predictable solution than using just like the right output. I tend to use filter spacing and various combinations of filter poles a lot, so there's usually quite a difference between the left and right channel. (So much, that I rarely pan the two outputs hard left and right. The full stereo image simply gets to wide to fit most mixes.)
