Hi all. I recently picked up a second hand Voyager OS as a step up from the Little Phatty I've used for a year or so, and it's in mint condition physically. Using it the past few days, however, I've noticed something odd that makes me wonder if there is something not quite right about my new baby.
I'm hoping that one of you other owners out there can tell me if this is normal... or if I'm going to need to call the Moog Synth Docs for treatment.
What I've discovered is that turning off "3 KB Cont" in the Oscillators section, Osc 2 goes sharp by about 3 semitones. It returns to normal if I turn 3 KB Cont on again. If 1-2 Sync is on at the same time as 3 KB Cont is off, Osc 2 jumps a full octave higher in pitch. (As in if I dial up a dual-sawtooth patch identically on both the OS and the Phatty and then turn Sync on both, I have to turn Osc 2 down an octave to sound the same as the Phatty).
Of course, I'm not trying to get my OS to sound exactly like the LP - but I want my Voyager to behave the way it is supposed to, and this just doesn't seem right.
By the way, if I try using Sync while 3 KB Cont is on, the sound doesn't have that wail/sheen that I associated with synced oscillators. I mean I can hear a difference in that there is no wave cancellation from two separate oscillators audible, but unless I turn 3 KB Cont off, it doesn't sound anything like the Sync sounds I get from the LP.
So what do you think? Do I have a problem with my Voyager, or is this the way it should be functioning and I should get on with enjoying the sweet sounds I can get from it?
Thanks in advance for your time!
