A 'use once in a while synth.' Well made and very very expensive. It won't improve your music as much as your sense of well being. Nice to have about and to show off to your mates. Mine's got wood...mine's got Bob written on it...oh dear!

Signature #191 in Maple. If you can't justify the price don't buy it. However, if you take into consideration the quality of the wood, parts and craftsmanship it is well worth the price tag. This is not your run of the mill analog synthesizer. it is a work of art and it shows. Open it up and look at the circuit boards. Immaculate!

I have a $3500 Petros acoustic guitar and it's the best acoustic guitar I've ever played. Again, it's a high quality, hand built work of art. When you buy a Voyager you're not just buying a synthesizer, you're buying beautiful work of art.

It sounds great and totally replaces my old minimoogs in my book. I think that the people at Moog did an excellent job bringing the Minimoog into the 21st century. It IS something I use everyday.

Many people will say negative things about this synth because it is so expensive and only plays one note at a time. I know many people that have saxophones that cost 2 times what a voyager costs.

Today's synthesists are spoiled by cheap virtual analog synths and ROMplers that feature tons of voices, multitimbrality, on board effects, etc. If that is what you are interested in then the Minimoog Voyager is NOT the synth for you. If you are a keyboard player that needs a great mono synth for performance then it is the synth for you. This synth deserves 5 out of 5 across the board. Anyone giving it less just doesn't get it what it is about.

I hate it when people rate something that they've only touched in a store.

This is only a synth for those who want the "classic" Moog sound (plus a LOT of modern ideas and features). It will not do pianos, or samples, or anything out of the realm of analog synthesis. It is, however, as good sounding as most modular synths (BETTER than some) and easily as good as ANY Minimoog in the world. If you apprciate Minimoogs (or their junior cousins), this is the Ultimate. Even with no software, it beats them all, but when the software completes, it will get FAR better. Nice to have free upgrades on analog synths!

SOmething about this machine is VERY satisfying; the sound is amazing: clean, beautiful hi-fi - or nasty, dirty, organic. Without tricks of cheats. The keyboard is among the best I have ever felt, and the knobs and construction are BETTER than any synth out there. This is built like a tank! There is also an Expansion Box that will give patch-jacks for CV in/out - making this the baby modular system (with MIDI) you have always wanted. GREAT for live...

cherry #230...contrasting with others, i did actually have cherry 209, and found that the pitchbend wheel was being chewed up by an errant piece of metal in the case (you could see the lucite particles...) granted, this was a demo at guitar center, so won't hold it too much against bob...i did notice that the littlelite doesn't firmly mount on ANY that i've seen...

it's a dream come true (i've wanted a mini for about 11 years now) and to have all that sonic power midi controllable (even if it's just notes...that's what the knobs are for!!!!!) i only wish i didn't have a day job (plus some moonlighting to build up my savings reserve after the purchase!) so i could sit and bask in it's awesome power all day long!

the oscillators rule, the filters can't be beat...i can't wait to get my 2 foot pedals to freak out that lfo rate!

it's amazing. i love it.

A nice, reliable version of the mini. Mine sounds great and looks the business. However, I don't think things have moved on much or enough. It really was very expensive. Only for moog die-hards. I suspect that it will go the same way as the se-1. Lacks the collectability of the original mini. Not something you will use everyday, but well worth having around.
