Moog Music Minimoog Voyager - Rack Mount Edition (Used) – No Longer Available

The award winning Minimoog Voyager analog synthesizer in a 5U rack mount package

Product Description

The Minimoog Voyager Rack Mount Edition Synthesizer is a monophonic (one note at a time) analog performance synthesizer housed in a 5U Rack Mount Enclosure. The 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 a dual mode filter module, containing a dual Moog lowpass mode and a highpass/lowpass mode and one stereo VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier). Modulation sources are two ADSR (Attack Decay Sustain Release) envelope generators and one multiwaveform LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator). The digital functions of the Voyager allow for storage of presets, transmitting and reception of MIDI, and software upgrades via MIDI. The User Interface is a LCD display with variable contrast, +1/-1 and cursor buttons for navigation, an Enter button for executing functions, and 3 Mode functions for determining the operation mode of the Voyager. Master Mode allows access to Global Settings and Utilities; Edit Mode allows access to Items stored as a Preset, and performs the Save function; Panel Mode allows access to the presets and is the mode used for performance, as well as performance related features.

Oscillators Module
Three wide-range, high stability VCO's (Voltage Controlled Oscillators) with continuously variable waveforms.
  • Two FREQUENCY controls vary the frequencies of Oscillators #2 and #3 over a +/-7 semitone range with respect to Oscillator #1.
  • Three OCTAVE selectors set the frequency ranges of the oscillators in six octave steps.
  • Three WAVE controls provide continuous control over the waveforms of the oscillators, from triangular, to sawtooth, to square, to narrow rectangular.
  • 1-2 SYNC switch synchronizes the Oscillator #2 waveform to the frequency of Oscillator #1, for dramatic timbral effects.
  • 3-1 FM switch provides linear frequency modulation of Oscillator #1 by Oscillator #3.
  • 3 KEYBOARD CONTROL switch disconnects Oscillator #3 from control by the keyboard CV, enabling it to function as a drone or a modulation source independent of the keyboard.
  • 3 FREQ switch lowers the frequency of Oscillator #3 into the sub-audio range, enabling it to function as a low frequency audio or modulating oscillator.
Mixer Module
Five-input mixer for combining the audio sources prior to filtering.
  • Five Input Level controls adjust the relative levels of the oscillator, noise, and external audio input signals.
  • Five Input switches enable the player to quickly switch individual audio signals in and out.
  • External Level LED enables the player to set the correct external audio signal level.
Filters Module
Dual mode filter module includes two Moog lowpass-resonant filters in parallel to stereo output or a highpass and lowpass-resonant filters in series, for highpass, bandpass, or lowpass filtering.
  • CUTOFF control sweeps the frequencies of both filters throughout the audio range.
  • SPACING control sets the spacing between the frequencies of the two lowpass filters or controls the frequency of the highpass filter, over a +/-3 octave range.
  • RESONANCE control adjusts the resonance of both filters, from none to filter oscillation.
  • KEYBOARD CONTROL AMOUNT control sets how much the filters open and close as the player presses different keys on the keyboard controlling the Voyager Rack Mount.
  • DUAL LOWPASS/ HIGHPASS-LOWPASS switch selects between two lowpass filters in parallel or a lowpass and highpass filter in series.
Envelopes Module
The Envelopes Module generates two wide-range ADSR (Attack Decay Sustain Release) envelopes. The Filter Envelope sweeps the filter and is available for modulation shaping. The Volume Envelope shapes the overall volume.
  • Two ATTACK controls determine the attack times of the envelopes.
  • Two DECAY controls determine the decay time constants of the envelopes.
  • Two SUSTAIN controls determine the sustain levels of the envelopes.
  • Two RELEASE controls determine the release time constants of the envelopes.
  • AMOUNT TO FILTER control determines how much the filter envelope will open and close the filter, from full negative (inverted envelope) to full positive (non-inverted envelope).
  • ENVELOPE GATE switch selects whether the envelopes will be triggered by the keyboard or by programmable envelope gate sources, including Keyboard Gate, S+H Gate (LFO), and MIDI Clock, allowing independent triggering of the two envelopes.
LFO Module
Low Frequency Oscillator generates triangular, square, Sample & Hold, and smoothed Sample & Hold waveforms for use as modulating signals.
  • RATE control sets the LFO rate over the range 0.2 Hz (one cycle every five seconds) to 50 Hz (50 times a second).
  • SYNC selector selects LFO synchronization source to be from the keyboard gate, MIDI Clock, external gate, or off (no synchronization).
  • RATE LED provides visual indication of the LFO rate.
Modulation Busses Module
Selects the sources, destinations, and shaping signals for the MOD WHEEL bus and the PEDAL/ON bus.
  • Two SOURCE selectors select the modulation source from the LFO waveforms, Oscillator# 3, the MOD2 Voltage, or a software selectable source whose default is noise.
  • Two DESTINATION selectors select the modulation destination from the pitch of all the audio oscillators, just Oscillator #2, just Oscillator #3, the filter frequencies, the oscillator waveforms, or a software selectable destination whose default is LFO Rate.
  • Two SHAPING selectors select the filter envelope, key pressure signal, key velocity or a software selectable source whose default is on to shape the modulation signal on that bus.
  • Two AMOUNT controls set the overall modulation amount for each bus.
Output Module
  • MASTER VOLUME control sets the overall level of the instrument's audio outputs.
  • HEADPHONE VOLUME control sets the overall level of the headphone output.
  • HEADPHONES JACK: 1/4" tip-ring-sleeve phone jack for regular stereo headphones.
Glide and Fine Tune Module
  • GLIDE varies the speed at which the keyboard voltage changes, from instantaneous to several seconds.
  • FINE TUNE adjusts the overall tuning of the instrument.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
