The Moog stand was situated just around the corner from The Analog Superbooth, where they shared the floor with Dave Smith and Roger .Linn. Sadly Bob wasn't there to complete the triumvirate of synth legends, but must surely be taking a well-earned break after 50 years in the synth business.
Taking center stand was the latest Moog Voyager Anniversary Edition sporting the latest OS V 2.0.
The operating system adds a number of features, including transmitting High Resolution MIDI Continuous Control messages from the Voyager's front panel, a powerful, new internal modulation matrix called "Pot Mapping", and create a polyphonic Minimoog using multiple Voyagers.
A brief summary of the new features follows:
Transmit MIDI Pitch Bend, Aftertouch, and CC messages from Left Hand Controller, Keyboard, Touch Surface and Front Panel Controls. New Master Mode Features:
Voyager Device ID and MIDI Key Order: Allows the chaining together of up to 16 Voyagers for a monster polyphonic synth.
Velocity Curve: Adjust the velocity curves to your playing .
New Edit Mode Features:

The new features are a continuation of Moog's commitment to listening to customers' input to provide the most responsive instrument possible, as many of the new features were requested by Voyager users.
