Excerpt: Without question, this keyboard will not let you get bored. There is a lifetime of creation that you can muster from this instrument. It is a bit heavy, and will require a strong keyboard stand. I would also invest into a flight case, as your investment here must be protected. This keyboard is loaded to the MAX, and this is one rig that will last you into eternity. The programming features appear to be endless.
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.
