Moog Minimoog Voyager XL Analog Synthesizer

The Moog Minimoog Voyager XL Analog Synthesizer, a monster analog monosynth built on a 40 year legacy of sonic exploration.

Moog Minimoog Voyager XL Analog Synthesizer Details

The Moog Minimoog Voyager XL Analog Synthesizer, designed in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Minimoog, is a sonic powerhouse that pays homage to important milestones in the Moog synthesizer legacy. It starts with the heart of a Minimoog Model D. Fat oscillators and warm Moog filters give it that unmistakable Moog sound and the rugged construction and intuitive user interface design immediately tells you that you're playing a high-quality musical instrument.

From the current Voyager lineage, the XL inherits a 100% analog signal path with stable oscillators, patch storage, touch surface, pot mapping and extensive MIDI control functionality. To all this, add a ribbon controller and 61 note keyboard and you have a monster analog monosynth built on a 40 year legacy of sonic exploration.

Incorporating virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Minimoog Model D and Voyager, The Minimoog Voyager XL features extensive front-panel patchability that harkens back to the original ground-breaking Moog modular synthesizers. A host of features previously found only on massive modular synthesizers combined with state-of-the-art analog technology make it a sound design and control dream machine.

Moog Minimoog Voyager XL Analog Synthesizer Specifications

100% Analog Sound Engine

The MINIMOOG VOYAGER XL Synthesizer is a monophonic analog performance and production synthesizer. Based on the Minimoog Voyager sound engine, it incorporates virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Minimoog Model D and Voyager, with the addition of a number of exciting features from Moog's modular synthesizer legacy.

Keyboard

61-Note Velocity Sensitive Keyboard with after-pressure. Identical to the Voyager 44-note keyboard.

Ribbon Controller

A 500mm Ribbon Controller is located on the middle wooden rail of the Voyager XL. It's center-point is lined up with 'middle-C' of the 61-note Keyboard. Outputs are sampled and available as CV-OUT (-5V to +5V) and GATE-OUT (0V to +5V).

Twenty Control Voltage Outputs

  • Keyboard Pitch (w/ internal trim to calibrate to 1 V/Octave)
  • Keyboard Velocity
  • Keyboard Afterpressure
  • Touch Surface X
  • Touch Surface Y
  • Touch Surface A (area)
  • Pitch Bend Wheel
  • Mod Wheel
  • MOD 1 signal (signal at MOD 1 input)
  • MOD 2 signal (signal at MOD 2 input)
  • LFO triangle wave
  • LFO square wave
  • Mod Wheel Mod Buss output
  • Pedal/On Mod Buss output
  • Filter Envelope
  • Volume envelope
  • Sample and Hold Step
  • Sample and Hold Smooth
  • Noise
  • Ribbon Controller CV Output (-5V to +5V)

Three Gate Outputs

  • Keyboard Gate
  • Touch Surface Gate
  • Ribbon Controller Gate Output

Three 4-way Mults

Top jack is ring-powered

  • Envelope Rate CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • OSC Pitch CV (adj. to 1V/Octave) (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • OSC Wave CV (all three osc. affected) ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • FILTER Cutoff CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • VCA Volume CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • VCA Pan CV (-2.5V to +2.5V) Ring-Powered
  • LFO Rate CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • MOD Mod1 CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • MOD Mod2 CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • S&H CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • ENV Release ON/OFF (0V OFF, +5V ON)
  • ENV Gate Input (0V OFF, +5V ON)
  • LFO Sync ON/OFF (0V OFF, +5V ON)
  • S&H Gate Input (0V OFF, +5V ON) No footswitch input

Two Active Attenuators

Active Attenuators are identical to the VX-352 attenuators with the following difference:

CHANNEL 1 is normalled to LFO 2 output. So, if nothing is connected to the Channel 1 input jack, the output of Channel 1 will be the attenuated version of the LFO 2 output.

CHANNEL 2 is normalled to RIBBON output. So, if nothing is connected to the Channel 2 input jack, the output of Channel 2 will be the attenuated version of the RIBBON controller.

EXPRESSION PEDALS can be connected to the Attenuator inputs (i.e. they are ring-powered inputs).

AMOUNT controls gain of -1 (CCW) to 1 (CW). Thus, the attenuators can create an inverted version of the waveform.

OFFSET control allows you to add a DC voltage of -5V to +5V to the input signal. The Attenuator output will be clipped to approximately +/-10V.

Four-Input Mixer

  • Inputs 1 and 2 can be attenuated via front-panel knobs
  • Inputs 1 and 3 can be controlled by Expression Pedals (i.e. ring-powered)
  • Two output CV's (+) and (-)
  • DC offset can be added to signal via OFFSET knob
  • Overall output of MIXER can be adjusted via the MASTER knob

Lag Processor

RISE and FALL time constants are adjustable from 1 millisecond to 1 second (middle is 100 millisecond).

LFO 2

A MIDI-syncable second LFO source has been added to the Voyager XL. The default frequency range is 0.02Hz (50 seconds) to 20Hz (0.05 seconds). This range was made to augment the current Voyager LFO which does not go slow-enough for some very slow modulations.

INPUTS: LFO 2 can be

  • Free-running (adjusted by the RATE knob on the front panel)
  • MIDI SYNC from external MIDI clock
  • Directly CLOCKED from a GATE CV via the front panel CLOCK jack
  • Controlled via external CV or Expression Pedal via the front panel RATE CV jack

OUTPUTS: LFO 2 has two complementary LFO outputs labeled (+) and (-). In default mode, these are the same waveform 180 degrees out of phase.

WAVEFORMS

Available front-panel waveforms:

  • TRIANGLE
  • SQUARE
  • RAMP
  • SAW
  • S&H
  • S&H SMOOTH

What We Think

The Moog Voyager XL is the big bad mamma jamma of Moogs. Why? What separates it from the standard frame Voyager (Performance or Electric Blue)? Several things:

- 61-Key Keyboard instead of the standard 49 keyboard

- Ribbon Controller

- The Patchbay is more than the equivalent of having a CP-251 and a VX-351 built right in to the face

- LFO2 has MIDI implementation to allow you to extend your ability to work with the LFO2 module and to interconnect and synchronize it to external sources such as DAW??s, other MIDI devices, or controllers

- EXT. CLOCK jack on the LFO2 module allows the LFO2 module to be directly triggered from an external clock (or GATE) source. With it, you can single trigger LFO events as well as synchronize the LFO2 to other applicable timing sources.

When considered all together, these features make the Moog Voyager XL the ultimate studio and live performance tool for the sonic pioneer. It's the perfect launching pad for adding more modules (Moogerfoogers) and even more control sources in the form of Moog EP-2 Expression Pedals or even the Moog Etherwave Theramin Plus!

What are the limits of a Moog Voyager XL? YOUR imagination!
