I LOVE my Minimoog Model D re-issue, Voyager, and RME!

The subject says it all.

The last couple of weeks I've been able to spend some quality time with my Minimoog Model D re-issue, my Voyager Select, and Voyager RME. What absolutely amazing instruments (I'm not ignoring my Model 15, I just needed to re-connect with the Minis :) ).

I finally updated the Model D to firmware 1.8. I know there are a few issues, but I'm very happy I did the upgrade. I then installed a Virtual Music "The Muse" for the Model D re-issue by Alexander Guelfenburg, https://www.virtual-music.at/en/moog/ . It's amazing. Super easy to install and setup, it fixes some of the more annoying 1.8 issues, and adds some extremely useful features that at least for me, makes the Model D much more fun to play. It's also completely reversible if that matters. I also upgraded my Voyager and RME to firmware 3.6.

Then, I finally re-did all the audio and midi wiring, bought a new, small mixer and I can now easily turn on and play the things without having to string cables all over my studio. Flip a couple of switches and turn up a gain knob or two and they just work. This stuff is so much more fun when it's easy to use.

Thank you Dr. Bob Moog and all those amazing people at Moog Music who conceived, designed, and built these amazing devices.
