Moog Voyager XL
The rumor mill has been abuzz with news of a new monster monosynth – the Moog MiniMoog Voyager XL. The Voyager XL promises to be a semi-modular monosynth (think Korg MS-20 on steroids), and has the synth community salivating.
(UPDATE: The Moog Minimoog Voyager XL has just been released!)
Here’s what it looks like (click for a larger version)
It’s a 60-key, full analogue synthesizer that looks like a mashup of a standard Moog Minimoog Voyager, the VX-351 Control Voltage Expander, and the CP-251 Control Processor. To top it all off, there’s also a great looking ribbon controller.
Here’s a closeup of the patch panel:
The Voyager XL hasn’t been announced by Moog, but Big City Music has it up on their website for a very short period today and then took it down. It’s expected to hit the stores around November or December with a rumored retail price of just under $5000. Ouch.
We’ll let you know as details are released and when it’s officially announced (here’s hoping it’s a polysynth!) – subscribe to our feed to be notified.
