Moog Music announced a new software editor for the Minimoog Voyager,
to be available this summer. The cross platform (Mac/PC) Editor allows instant
access to the Voyager's presets, banks, patches, and edit mode parameters
through the computer's MIDI interface.

Voyager owners will be able to quickly assemble preset banks, categorize and
archive presets, create random patches, and access edit mode parameters to
plumb the depths of the Voyager's synthesis capabilities. The interface allows
the user to load a preset and examine its settings to understand how presets
are achieved, as all the front panel controls and the parameters in edit mode
can be viewed and edited on the main display screen.

The editor gives fast access to edit mode parameters, including Pitch Bend
amount, PGM Mod Buss Source, Destination, Shaping, Keyboard Modes, Trigger
Modes, Filter Poles, Envelope Gate Sources, Touch Surface Destinations, Pot
Mapping, Clock Divider, and Preset Name. Making a change to any of the controls
on the editor's display automatically sends the change to the Voyager. The
resolution of the continuous controls can be set to 16-bit resolution for very
precise editing.

Priced at $79, the editor will be available for download from Moog Music's
web site soon.
