The rumored polyphonic and low-cost Moog synths were no-shows at NAMM but that didn’t mean there wasn’t anything to get excited about in the Moog booth. Owners of the Voyager Rack Mount edition are about to get their wish for more expansion capability in the form of the VX-352 CV input expander. The VX-352 turns the synth into a full-fledged mini-modular system by allowing it to easily accommodate external CV gear.
The VX-352 adds all the CV inputs already found on the back of the Voyager keyboard to the RME. It also includes a pair of active CV attenuators for boosting or cutting the CV level, bias controls, and a set of CV inputs which correspond to the X,Y,A, and Gate parameters of the Voyager’s touch surface. All of these parameters have programmable destinations providing you with a programmable CV mod matrix with three continuous CV and one CV-gate input. Ed: This could be a lot of fun combined with the Martenot-inspired keyboard controller and other analog gear we saw earlier this week. -PK
While announced previously, NAMM was the first time anyone outside of Moog has seen one in person and we’ve got one of the first pictures.
For other new Moog products, Moog says you’ll have to wait until the next Musikmesse, to be held in Frankfurt, Germany in March.
Everyone get that? We’ll be watching closely for Moog news from Germany. Photo by Lee Sherman.
