We just got a compact message from the Moogsters, letting us know about the new Minimoog Electric Blue cabinet mounted synthesizer. As yet, we have no pictures but we do know that the Electric Blue incorporates virtually all of the functions of the original Minimoog Synthesizer (produced from 1971 to 1984) with a "sound and beauty all its own". The Electric Blue is housed in an ash cabinet with a fractal blue finish and the awe-inspiring electric blue backlit front panel.
Equipped with custom pre-sets this new Voyager has all of the warm fat analog sounds that have become synonymous with Moog. With three ultra-stable analog oscillators, dual Moog Filters, and the punchiest analog envelope generators around, the Electric Blue is sure to draw attention from players, audio engineers, and analog synthesis aficionados alike.
The MiniMoog Voyager Electric Blue sells for $3295 and is immediately available. www.moogmusic.com Sales at (828)251-0090
