Minimoog Voyager XL

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.


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).

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

(2) 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).


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.


Available front-panel waveforms:

  • RAMP
  • SAW
  • S&H


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