It’s been quite an amazing time for Moog recently. The Moog Modular Recreation, MF-Chorus & MF-Flange have been nominated for NAMM
The wait is over, a winner has been chosen! When Austin resident Thomas Echols was choosen at random to win the 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager Moog knew they had the opportunity to do something very special. In order to surprise Tom with the gift of a lifetime, they invited him to play a brief set in front of Switched On as part of their presence at SXSW this year. Grateful for the invite and happy to play, Tom had no idea just how amazing a day this would turn out to be for him.
Last week we showed you the pictures of the amazing 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager. This very special edition stirred up some discussion all around us. Today the people at Moog released the video below. And that’s not all they also had a very special message! Just read it below….
Till the end of this year you’ll have the opportunity to order Minimoog Voyager from the Select Series. Because today Moog Music announced its plans to discontinue production of the Minimoog Voyager Select Series, the top selling backlit analog synthesizer of all time. Over the last six years the Select Series has been used in studios and on stages around the globe. Whether it’s Madonna, Dr. Dre, Alicia Keys, CeeLo Green, Lady Gaga or Sugarland, the custom combinations of color and finish reflects the unique aesthetic and personality of its owner.
Little Dragon came in for a session during Moogfest 2011. Sadly, their bass player fell ill during the festival and they were unable to perform their full set that evening. Luckily, their soundman filled in on bass parts with the Little Phatty for the Moog Sound Lab session and Moog got a gem of a performance.
Nova*Musik have teamed up with Moog Music once again to bring you another piece of synthesizer history. They are proud and excited to announce the MOOG VOYAGER PERFORMER LUNAR IMPACT!
Moog Music has released an update of the Voyager Operating System. Version 3.5 for the Minimoog Voyager Analog synthesizer adds a number of new features, including quick save, category browse, and legato glide.
The new Voyager 3.4 Operating System features extensive local control options, new touch surface features, and enhanced pot resolution.
Moog has released version 3.0 of the Voyager Editor Librarian, which has a exciting new user interface.
Moog announces a significant enhancement to the Voyager synthesizer line – Version 3.0 (V3.0). This enhancement requires an upgrade to both your Voyager hardware as well as the new V3.0 software.
The Minimoog Voyager Editor-Librarian is a program that is designed to be the ultimate tool for organizing and creating presets for the minimoog Voyager. Through a MIDI connection, this program can pull single presets or the entire bank of presets from the Voyager – as well as replace individual presets or the entire bank. Once the presets are in the computer – all parameters are displayed on the graphical user interface, including EDIT mode functions like Pot Mapping, Touch Surface Destinations and Filter Poles. The settings of the front panel controls are displayed too with high resolution editing available, so this program can also be used to learn how the factory presets work as well as edit sounds with precision. Presets can be added to a library in user-named categories for creating custom preset banks – great to help the preparation of the gigging musician! In addition – the “Genetics” function can be used to obtain new presets by morphing or mutating two presets together into a whole new bank.
A Voyager OS update function is added too, to simplify the updating of the Voyager’s firmware. A Voyager must be updated to OS 2.5 to function with this software.

Requires OSX (does not support Mac OS 9). Pricing is set at $79.00
