The MiniMoog Voyager is now available in a new 19" Rack Mount Edition! The Rack Mount Edition (RME) is five units high and, with optional wood sides, doubles as a tabletop synth. Its backlit front panel includes all of the front panel controls of the Voyager (with the exception of the touch surface). All presets from the Voyager are useable in the Rack Mount Edition
The Minimoog Voyager Rack Mount Edition is perhaps the ultimate monophonic analog performance synth. It incorporates virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Model D Minimoog, which was produced by Moog Music, Inc. from 1970 to 1982. The Voyager Rack has many new additional features, including MIDI IN and MIDI OUT implementation, extensive patching facilities, and a large number of new panel features.
The Voyager Rack Mount Edition's signal path starts with a bank of three wide-range, high-stability voltage controlled oscillators, one noise source, and one audio preamplifier for externally-applied audio signals. The sound modifiers are two 'Moog-style' low-pass filters and one VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier). Modulation sources are two ADSR (Attack Decay Sustain Release) envelope generators and one multi-waveform LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator).
The Voyager Rack Mount Edition's rear panel delivers all of the same input/output resources that are available on the Voyager via its MIDI IN, THRU, and OUT connectors, four audio input and output jacks, and two accessory port connectors. The output accessory port connects the RME's 21 control and gate outputs to the forthcoming VX-351 Voyager CV Output Expander, while the input accessory port connects the 18 control and gate inputs to the VX-352 Voyager CV Input Expander.
V3.0 extends the current single Bank of 128 Presets to 7 Banks of 128 Presets for a total of 896 user accessible presets. Of the 896 user accessible presets, 704 come pre-loaded with patches from Nigel Hopkins, Brian Kehew, Will Alexander, Bernie Worrell, Drew Newmann, Amos Gaynes, Steve Dunnington, Aron Magner, Chad Hugo, Darrell Diaz, Frank Lucas, Fred Wreck, Gabrial McNair, Geoffrey Keezer, Herbie Hancock, Khari Simmons, James Lumb, Jamie Muhoberac, Joseph Rivers, Neil Palmer, Printz Board, Randy Cantor, Rick Wakeman, Mark Kline, Zon Vern Pyles, Thomas Wolf.
Three wide-range, high stability VCOs with continuously-variable waveforms.
Two "Moog-style" low-pass-resonant filters with choice of two-pole or four-pole response
Five-input mixer for combining the audio sources prior to filtering
Two wide-range ADSR (Attack Decay Sustain Release) envelopes
Filter Envelope sweeps the filter and is available for modulation shaping
Volume Envelope shapes the overall volume
Low Frequency Oscillator generates triangular, square, Sample & Hold, and smoothed Sample & Hold waveforms for use as modulating signals
Modulation Busses Module selects sources, destinations, and shaping signals for the MOD WHEEL bus and the EXT PEDAL bus
GLIDE varies the speed at which the keyboard voltage changes, from instantaneous to several seconds
