Modern Design, Modular Flexibility and the Heart of a Minimoog

“To celebrate the 40th anniversary of a ground-breaking product like the Minimoog Model D, we knew we had to design something special. The Minimoog Voyager XL draws from the Model D and the entire history of our company to create an outstanding new instrument tailored for production, performance and sound design."

Mike Adams, President of Moog Music




The Minimoog at 40

Interested in the Minimoog Voyager XL and want to see the big picture? Check out the cover of the October 2010 issue of KEYBOARD Magazine.

The issue is devoted to the 40 year history of the Minimoog and the cover is a special double-wide, foldout. That was the only way they were able to fit the XL on it!

On November 21st, Mike Einziger, guitarist/co-founder of rock super-group Incubus will premiere a new work featuring twelve Moog Guitars!

This performance is part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s opening of their West Coast, Left Coast festival and marks the largest performing ensemble of Moog Guitars yet assembled. Don't miss this historic event.

"The new Moog Guitar opens up an astonishing array of possibilites for creating texture. Between the sustain (built into the pickups) and the depth of the filter section, this guitar can emulate many of the sounds created by analog synthesizers...but uniquely characterized by the unmistakable sound of a vibrating string. I'm totally in love with it." - Mike Einziger

When/Where:

Saturday, November 21, 2009
WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL
111 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles CA
