Minimoog Voyager XL Specs

100% Analog Sound Engine

The MINIMOOG VOYAGER XL Synthesizer is a monophonic analog performance and production synthesizer. Based on the Minimoog Voyager sound engine, it incorporates virtually all of the sound resources and functions of the original Minimoog Model D and Voyager, with the addition of a number of exciting features from Moog's modular synthesizer legacy.

Keyboard

61-Note Velocity Sensitive Keyboard with after-pressure. Identical to the Voyager 44-note keyboard.

Ribbon Controller

A 500mm Ribbon Controller is located on the middle wooden rail of the Voyager XL. It's center-point is lined up with 'middle-C' of the 61-note Keyboard. Outputs are sampled and available as CV-OUT (-5V to +5V) and GATE-OUT (0V to +5V).

Control Voltage output

  • Keyboard Pitch (w/ internal trim to calibrate to 1 V/Octave)
  • Keyboard Velocity
  • Keyboard Afterpressure
  • Touch Surface X
  • Touch Surface Y
  • Touch Surface A (area)
  • Pitch Bend Wheel
  • Mod Wheel
  • MOD 1 signal (signal at MOD 1 input)
  • MOD 2 signal (signal at MOD 2 input)
  • LFO triangle wave
  • LFO square wave
  • Mod Wheel Mod Buss output
  • Pedal/On Mod Buss output
  • Filter Envelope
  • Volume envelope
  • Sample and Hold Step
  • Sample and Hold Smooth
  • Noise
  • Ribbon Controller CV Output (-5V to +5V)

Gate outputs

  • Keyboard Gate
  • Touch Surface Gate
  • Ribbon Controller Gate Output

4-way Mults (top jack is ring-powered)

Control Voltage Inputs

  • Envelope Rate CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • OSC Pitch CV (adj. to 1V/Octave) (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • OSC Wave CV (all three osc. affected) ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • FILTER Cutoff CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • VCA Volume CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • VCA Pan CV (-2.5V to +2.5V) Ring-Powered
  • LFO Rate CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • MOD Mod1 CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • MOD Mod2 CV ( 0V to +5V) Ring-Powered
  • S&H CV (-5V to +5V) Ring-Powered


Gate Inputs

  • ENV Release ON/OFF (0V OFF, +5V ON)
  • ENV Gate Input (0V OFF, +5V ON)
  • LFO Sync ON/OFF (0V OFF, +5V ON)
  • S&H Gate Input (0V OFF, +5V ON) No footswitch input


Active Attenuators

Active Attenuators are identical to the VX-352 attenuators with the following difference:

CHANNEL 1 is normalled to LFO 2 output. So, if nothing is connected to the Channel 1 input jack, the output of Channel 1 will be the attenuated version of the LFO 2 output.

CHANNEL 2 is normalled to RIBBON output. So, if nothing is connected to the Channel 2 input jack, the output of Channel 2 will be the attenuated version of the RIBBON controller.

EXPRESSION PEDALS can be connected to the Attenuator inputs (i.e. they are ring-powered inputs).

AMOUNT controls gain of -1 (CCW) to 1 (CW). Thus, the attenuators can create an inverted version of the waveform.

OFFSET control allows you to add a DC voltage of -5V to +5V to the input signal. The Attenuator output will be clipped to approximately +/-10V.


Four-Input Mixer

  • Inputs 1 and 2 can be attenuated via front-panel knobs
  • Inputs 1 and 3 can be controlled by Expression Pedals (i.e. ring-powered)
  • Two output CV's (+) and (-)
  • DC offset can be added to signal via OFFSET knob
  • Overall output of MIXER can be adjusted via the MASTER knob


Lag Processor

RISE and FALL time constants are adjustable from 1 millisecond to 1 second (middle is 100 millisecond).


LFO 2

A MIDI-syncable second LFO source has been added to the Voyager XL. The default frequency range is 0.02Hz (50 seconds) to 20Hz (0.05 seconds). This range was made to augment the current Voyager LFO which does not go slow-enough for some very slow modulations.

INPUTS: LFO 2 can be

  • Free-running (adjusted by the RATE knob on the front panel)
  • MIDI SYNC from external MIDI clock
  • Directly CLOCKED from a GATE CV via the front panel CLOCK jack
  • Controlled via external CV or Expression Pedal via the front panel RATE CV jack

OUTPUTS: LFO 2 has two complementary LFO outputs labeled (+) and (-). In default mode, these are the same waveform 180 degrees out of phase.

WAVEFORMS

Available front-panel waveforms:

  • TRIANGLE
  • SQUARE
  • RAMP
  • SAW
  • S&H
  • S&H SMOOTH

Power

Power input accepts a standard power cable. The Minimoog Voyager XL works from 100-250 VAC, 50-60 Hz.

12V Lamp
The TNC Lamp Socket provides 12VDC for a gooseneck lamp.
