Inside Moog Voyager

by Peter Kirn

Even Bob Moog's circuit boards are gorgeous. Qwave (via a Harmony Central message thread) couldn't just admire his Minimoog Voyager
keyboard from the outside — he had to check out the guts. That has ignited some
controversy over the lack of discrete transistors in the analog
Voyager, but I think people are overreacting. The ultimate test is the
sound, and the Voyager has the analog sound down, like its
predecessors. More interesting is the similarity to the early designs.
And yes, you can see the famous 'ladder' circuitry in one of the shots.

Take a look inside.
