One of the most successful synthesizers of all time was the Minimoog Voyager, the last ever keyboard designed from start to finish by Dr. Bob Moog, the inventor of what we’d consider to be the practical electronic keyboard.
The Voyager can be heard on countless records. Daft Punk, Bjork, Stevie Wonder, Radiohead, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Dr. Dre and Herbie Hancock were just some of the artists who used it.
More than 14,000 units were produced over 13 years, but now it’s being phased out. To commemorate the occasion, the people at Moog sat down with Trent Reznor to talk about the Voyager, which was one of his favourite machines. This is great synth porn.
Maybe this will ease the pain: Mother-32, a brand new semi-modular analogue synth. Oooo.
