Moog has announced the availability of the Aluminum Minimoog Voyager, a limited edition of the analog synthesizer.
The Aluminium Minimoog Voyager is a limited edition, 100 piece production of the legendary Minimoog Voyager – the analog synthesizer that was the culmination of a lifetime of work for synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog.
It is housed in an elegantly machined, all aluminium cabinet that has been weight relieved for portability. The cabinet features a clear anodized finish with industrial fixtures securing an electric blue backlit panel with electric blue LEDs, all black switches and nuts, and electric blue pitch & mod wheels.
The Aluminum Minimoog Voyager is now available at select dealers and distributors, priced at $3,995 USD.

Minimojo is an emulation of an old synthesizer built in Reaktor, available for all registered product owners in the NI Reaktor User Library.
The Juice 3 is not in any way a copy of MONARK. The builder did not have access to or ever used MONARK during the making of Juice 3. Instead, the old ensemble Minimood made by NI in 1999, which has then been modified by several users, has been used as the starting point. I think that the basic structure will be recognizable from that early ensemble.
As the Model D is the most emulated synthesizer the world probably don’t need yet another one. Juice 3 should be seen as a proof of concept; how to emulate the should of vintage synthesizers using the Reaktor environment.
The technology developed for this is called Analog Legacy. Analog Legacy is the theory of modulating all functions in a synthesizer at all frequencies. The key is to find the right balance of the modulation depth for each frequency. Juice 3 is the first attempt to use this theory in practice.
Marc Girard takes on the challenge to compare a classic synth with its emulated counterpart, background video description below:
Here’s a quick video we made testing out the differences between a real Minimoog and a virtual one from Arturia, iMini. I was quite surprised!
Moog Music will be introducing a limited edition aluminum Minimoog Voyager.
The only thing that they’ve released at this point is this teaser image of the components that make up the new synth.
Details on availability and pricing are to come at the NAMM Show later this week.
Inevitable Crafts shared this design for a Minimoog-style iPad MIDI controller.
It’s in the proof-of-concept stage, and the plan is to base it on inexpensive, readily available components, including an Akai LPK8, a Behringer 202 sounccard and various plugs and connectors and birch wood from Home Depot.
complete IO for the ipad
__symmetric audio IN/OUT
__MS20 filter, patchable IN or OUT
as this is a proof of concept, i will take the cheapest parts available
__birch instead of mahagoni at homedepot for around
__akai lpk8 instead of anything decent, so no wheels, but the only alternative would be the line6 and thats too big
__behringer 202 soundcard, unsymmetric and generally crappy and RCA …. but small and cheap
__cheap usb hub
__female MIDI plugs and around 12 mono plugs (thats expensive ^^)
__korg monotron for the filter
the controls left and right the ipad are mounted on dedicated panels to make it easier to expand and change layout.
Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the Moog Minimoog being raffled by the Bob Moog Foundation. This synthesizer was modified by Rich Walborn, and signed by Gary Numan. It was purchased by the BMF as a fundraiser.
