Donated to the Bob Moog Foundation by Moog Music, Inc., the Moogfest Voyager is the Electric Blue Edition featuring a gorgeous electric blue backlit panel and fractal blue (black with tiny blue specks) solid ash cabinet. The retail price of this award-winning instrument is over $3,500.
The following Moogfest 2012 artists and panelists signed the Voyager, making it a one-of-a-kind collectors item:
Squarepusher, Nas, Ana Sia, Shpongle, Paul and Phil Hartnoll of Orbital, the Magnetic Fields, Santigold, Thomas Dolby, GZA, Richard Devine, Carl Craig, Miike Snow, Les Claypool of Primus, Bear in Heaven, Explosions in the Sky, Morton Subotnick, Richie Hawtin, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Alessandro Cortini, Chad Hugo, Herb Deutsch, and the team that created the Robert Moog Google Doodle, released on May 23, 2012, Moog's 78th birthday.
Ryan Germick, Lead Designer from the Google Doodle team, crafted a miniature replica of the now infamous “Goog” browser synthesizer on the back of the Voyager.
The Minimoog Voyager, designed by Bob Moog himself and released in 2002, is an updated version of the original Minimoog with 21st century advantages to carry the archetype into the future. The Voyager is the definitive American synthesizer, a lovingly hand-crafted, monophonic, monotimbral high performance instrument with enormous sonic range and possibilities. From its famous ladder filters to its innovative Touch Surface Controller, the Minimoog Voyager is the ultimate in analog. –
