I like all synths and still find use for my super cheapo Arp Axxe at times. I like that as much as I like my Voyager but for different reasons.
Why knock a synth you haven't played just because it is expensive? The only reason I can think of is jealousy. Get a life people and stop posting here unless you have something valid to say.
That being said I have to say that each time I turn on the Voyager I like it more and more. It really is a flexible, wonderful sounding analog synth. The patches I come up with go way beyond what an old Mini could do. The new OS allows you to switch the filter from 1 to 4 poles. That really increases the sounds this synth is capable of. The hard wired mod routings are pretty flexible as it is but I can't wait to get the VX/CP combo for more modulation madness.
If you have the cash and need a semi modular analog mono go for it. You won't be sorry. If you are sorry you can still sell it and buy a nice modular from synthesizers.com or synthtech.com.

I've had my voyager for a few weeks now (sig #402 walnut) and I am amazed by it everyday. As an old school player who grew up on Wakeman and Emerson this keyboard is like an old friend! If your not used to programming, the Voyager may seem a bit overwhelming, but just sit and experiment. Moog has always had a unique sound and the Voyager continues the heritage. Organic, rich, this thing feels "alive"! I have an MS2000 and Roland JP-8080. They are fine emulators, but side by side the Voyager just has the Moog charm that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Is it overpriced? Yes, I think so, but the build and sound quality are top notch and I don't feel cheated in the least. I would like to see an octave +, - switch, and I'm told all knobs will be MIDI recognized in a future OS. Let's hope that becomes a reality. Bottom line is if it opens your creative doorway than it's worth it. Some people buy expensive cars, clothes etc. It's all what you value in life. I'd rather own a Moog and drive a Yugo. Peace...

Hiya guys fellow mmv users out there! I think the purpose of a forum like this should be to revieuw a product 'n' not to moan or to offend each other... moreover I think that people who tried this synth out in a shop for half an hour should not post a revieuw. I've got this mmv for about 4 moths now and still I have only heard so little of what it's capable of! This is a professional instrument, and like all instruments some like it some don't, but let's not discuss this here. this is not my first synth I've owned arp's(odessy, prosoloist)rolands(jp4, sh101, sh02, jx3p) and korgs(ms10, ms20) vintage ones and VA's(novation, korgms2000) 'n' to my oppinion the mmv is the best. It's quiet expensive though and not a synth for beginners... since it's semi modular it requires knoledge of voltage control. But once you get to know this synth you start to realize it goes way beyond the old mini! Once you start hooking it up to the moogerfoogers the possibilities become... waaaaaaaawwwww!!!!!
this is trully a firstclass instrument, efects processor, midi controller, smile on my face maker, piece of furniture, beatbox, filterbank...
Hey, nothing is good unless you play with it!
Peace! p'tit jean

I bought the Moog Voyager Signature model, and am ecstatic and totally satisfied. I have owned two Mini-Moogs in the far-distant past, and even been a Moog retail salesman, thanks to Bob Turner, who "turned" me on to them in the first place (and I even customized one of the Moogs, to add a floor mod pedal, made by my own hand out of a Farfisa pedal, which was a very effective mod, I must say). Bob Moog and his team should be immensely proud. They have updated the Mini in a practically perfect fashion, bringing to it almost everything I would have thought to bring to it in my wildest dreams. After all, they didn't update the Memory Moog; they updated the Mini. So, what we have is a perfectly updated Mini-Moog. It's beautiful, elegant, and magnificently done - I'd have sold a lot of my current equipment just to have helped to bootstrap Moog Music into accomplishing it. Some things just have to come into being - just have to be. This is one of them. They should be celebrated, congratulated, and supported as much as should be the Tech Museum in San Jose, or the Metropolitan Opera, or the like - however, the fact that they've made it as a thriving *business* is more to their credit! They're *not* a museum, not an oddity (no pun intended), and not archaic, out of touch, or anything of the kind. Read the current issue of Keyboard in depth if you want to get a sense of just how in tune they are. And listen to the instrument if you want to hear how beautiful a synth can really sound. Yes, MIDI it to another instrument to enhance it (and to enhance the *other* instrument) - just as one processes any instrument through effects to enhance it. These are the essential ways in which we make music, and make music better (listen to how Jan Hammer made the Mini scream by flanging and echoing it - still my favorite way to listen to a Moog). These are all tools, and ways and means. Great tools, and ways and means. Long live the Mini-Moog, and long live the Voyager, as a worthy *addition* to the heritage!
