Introducing the Minimoog Voyager. The recording studio still needed a finishing touch. After 2 months waiting patiently, the Minimoog Voyager finally arrived yesterday! All Moog instruments are lovingly handcrafted by real people. The Minimoog Voyager Performer Edition is an all-analog performance synthesizer that incorporates the features and incredible sonic range of the original Minimoog, while adding a vast number of new functional improvements to its design. Many people feel that the Minimoog is probably the best analog synth ever built. Minimoog Voyager users include: Herbie Hancock, Rick Wakeman, Chick Corea, Bernie Worrell, Brian Eno, Stevie Wonder and Mr. Bowie.
The minor issues regarding the communication between the MIDI interface and the synthesizers are almost solved. I met a specialist in a music store who probably knows how to fix a remaining problem. Meanwhile, Mr. Bowie seems to be quite enthusiastic about the new Moog synth. And the big boxes. I liked the Bob Moog quote on the box.
“To be human, to be fully human, is to need music and to derive nourishment from the music you hear. What you do with our instruments helps us to be more human too, and I want to thank you all for that.”
