Excerpt: I purchased this synthesizer about 3 months ago and I was really let down by what I had received. Moog has GREAT products and this is by far the WORST one that I've encountered. I've toured with Big Chocolate, Kavinsky, Tesla Boy, Daft Punk, etc. and they all agree that this thing is a complete waste of time, material, space, electricity, and money. Please take my advice, don't buy this hunk of trash.
Summary: The Voyager XL is a large and heavy lump of synthesizer that reminds me of gigging in the 1970s, in more ways than one! But it looks gorgeous and it sounds great. Unfortunately, I suspect that almost as many will end up in display cases as will find their way onto the stages of the world. You can't justify buying one on a price/performance basis, but as an object of desire it's possibly in a class of its own.
Pros: It's as sexy as a sexy thing on a sexy day, and it will incite deep lust in many players...
Cons: ... but given the price, it may be unrequited lust, I'm afraid.
Excerpt: The original Minimoog is arguably the best-sounding analogue synth ever made. It’s not far off a decade ago since Moog Music re-released the Minimoog in the shape of the Voyager, a faithful representation of the old beast that has become so sought-after by collectors and musicians that these days one in good nick can go for up to £5,000.
