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.
