Voyager XL!

Post by goldphinga » Wed Sep 08, 2010 2:09 pm

Hope this is real? Not sure but did see it on Moog Music's Twitter Feed..thought i'd share! Kinda looks photoshopped but dunno!! 8)
Just a thought if it is real, could it be polyphonic perhaps?

Can't be photoshopped.

It's a Voyager integrated with a VX-351 and CP-251, and the VX/CP panels are different.

Looks slightly photoshopped--but perhaps only to correct colors for posting to the web....To that point, I think that this thing looks real. Nothing jumps out at me as indicating that it's polyphonic. But it does appear to have something like a ribon controler between the keyboard and the control panel!

In all It looks like a Voyager with extended patch capabilities--something that expands the Voyager's playability further towards the modular synthesis roots on which the original Minimoog was based. This could be quite interesting.

oh no! :evil: Where is the innovation? How many need such a stuff?

Moog only must watch the poll in this forum. My money is still at the bank for polyphony, but I can not guarantee till I'm passing away. :roll:

It's real. Check these hi-res pictures, spend some time looking at the 1/4" on the left, you'll see ribbon outs, and additional LFO with multiple waveforms, sync light, etc. etc. etc.

With closeups and details like this, it would be easier to make one from existing parts then to photoshop it to this level of detail.

Shame they didn't make a 6 voice Poly with this interface and 5 octave BUT wishing them lots of success.

mouth-watering to me! Will skip the next summer holiday Aida ship cruising. Only one little problem remains: Convincing my wife...
