2 INSTALLATION/REQUIREMENTS No special software installation is required. The Minimoog Voyager Editor Librarian is a standalone program designed to run on Macintosh computers under OSX only (an OS9 version is not available). The software requires a 1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution. The Minimoog Voyager Operating System must be V3.2 or higher (updates available at www.moogmusic.com) A MIDI interface is required for the software to work with the Minimoog Voyager. A wheeled, two-button mouse is recommended for additional control of the program. 2.1 Before you begin To get the most out of this program you should be familiar with the operation of the Minimoog Voyager. The Voyager Users Manual is an excellent resource to aid in the understanding of the inner workings of your Voyager. It is recommended reading for all Voyager owners. Although this software program can be an invaluable resource to aid in the understanding the Voyager, it is not a substitute for reading the Voyager Users Manual.
3 STARTING UP Double clicking on the Moog Voyager program icon launches the Minimoog Voyager Editor Librarian program. The program will ask for your name and registration number as shown.
To register the software, click the Register Online button (youll need an active Internet connection for this). Clicking the Register Online button will take you to the Moog Music Online Store, where you can order the program. After completing the online transaction, the Registration code will be sent to your email address. Once you have obtained a registration code, enter this information along with your name in the appropriate fields and click the Enter Code button. Registered users will see their name displayed on a slightly modified splash screen that includes This software is registered to (your name). Note: In case of lost registration, a hard drive crash or other calamity, registered users can obtain their registration information by writing to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you click on the Demo Mode button, the program will open and allow you to edit all of the Voyagers preset parameters and use most of Editor's functions, with the following limitations: Saving files (disabled) Loading files (disabled) with exception of SysEx (System Exclusive) files in OS UPDATE utility. Writing presets to the Voyager (disabled) Transmitting the User Bank (disabled) Sending up to 5 panel edits from the Library and Preset Genetics to the Voyager The editing session is time-limited.
There is no limit to the number of times the program can be run in Demo Mode.
4 GETTING CONNECTED - MIDI SETUP In order for the Editor/Librarian program to be fully functional with the Voyager hardware, the software must be registered (not in Demo Mode) and the Voyager must be connected to the MIDI In and MIDI Out connections of your computer's MIDI interface. After making the proper connections between the Voyager and the MIDI interface, launch the Editor/Librarian. In the programs MIDI menu, select MIDI Setup. Youll see the following window (your window may show different MIDI IN Port and MIDI OUT Port information):
You can also use the Macintosh keyboard to navigate the list, but you must select a preset in the list first. The reason is that there are actually two preset lists on the Editor window; one for the User Bank (as shown above) and one for the Librarian. Without your input the program has no idea which of the two lists you wish to control. You can use the following keyboard keys to navigate the list: Pressing the PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN keys scrolls the list in blocks of presets. The UP and DOWN keys will scroll one preset at a time, up or down respectively. Pressing the END key moves to the end of the list, while the HOME key returns to the beginning of the list.
You can change the way the presets in the User Bank are displayed. By default, presets are displayed from 1 to 128, but you can change the order by clicking in the No. column in the User Preset Bank list. This will reverse the sorting order, placing preset 128 at the top of the list:
A second click in the No. column toggles the sort order back to its original state. You can also sort by preset name or preset category. Clicking in the Preset column causes the User Preset Bank to be sorted alphabetically:
Clicking again in the Preset column reverses the sort order. Clicking in the Category column causes the User Preset Bank to be sorted alphabetically by category:
Clicking again in the Category column reverses the sort order.
Note: When sorting by Preset or Category, youll see a directional arrow in the column heading. This arrow indicates the sort order (an up arrow indicates an alphabetical sort, a down arrow indicates a reverse alphabetical sort). Selecting any preset, regardless of the sort order (number, name or category), will always send the displayed Preset to the Voyager.
Note: Preset Bank Lists in the Librarian or Preset Genetics windows can also be sorted forward or reverse by clicking in their column headers.
6.1.2 Working with Banks Buttons for Load, Save, Receive, and Transmit appear above the User Preset Bank display to provide for frequently used bank operations (well discuss other buttons later). The Load and Save buttons allow you to conveniently load or save banks from/to the computer. The Receive and Transmit buttons allow banks to be moved to/from the Voyager. These four button functions duplicate commands found in the menus.
6.1.3 Other User Bank Functions Now lets look at the other User Bank button functions that havent been covered.
The Edit button takes you to the Editor window, where you can edit the currently selected preset. A complete explanation of the Editor window is saved for later in this guide (see page 28). The Use loaded data checkbox is a feature that changes the way the program works with the Voyager. When the box is unchecked (disabled), selecting a preset from the User Bank switches the Voyager to the corresponding preset. The Voyager sends the preset to the User Bank. This guaranties synchronization between the Voyager and the program. When the checkbox is checked (enabled), the selected preset data from the User Bank is sent to Voyager's edit buffer for editing and audition. This feature helps you to browse through presets in the User Bank without the need for dumping the entire bank to the Voyager. The Auto Dump checkbox works for the Librarian. When checked (enabled), a selected preset from the Librarian preset list is automatically sent to the Voyager's edit buffer for editing/audition. When unchecked, no data is sent to the Voyager.
The Drag and Drop and Multi Select radio buttons control the way the cursor operates: Drag and Drop mode is conventional cursor operation, allowing you to freely drag and drop presets between the current User Bank and the Librarian. You can add the SHIFT and COMMAND () modifier keys to make multiple preset selections. These can be groups of presets, non-adjacent selections, or a combination of both. Multi Select mode locks the cursor into Select mode, allowing you to select groups of presets. This mode can be useful for large amounts of group moves because it restricts the operation of the cursor to just making selections, preventing accidental dragging of presets out of the User Bank or Librarian. In Multi Select mode, presets are moved between the User Bank and Librarian using the large Move arrows (see 6.1.5 Organizing Presets).
Finally, User Bank buttons A-G allow you to switch amongst the seven program banks. Keep in mind that the bank buttons interact with the Use loaded data checkbox, meaning that the Editor will either switch to the Voyager bank/location and acquire the preset data from the Voyager (when Use loaded data is unchecked), or send the selected preset data to the Voyagers current preset (when Use loaded data is checked).
6.1.4 The Bank Menu The Bank menu shown below includes the Load User Bank Data and Save User Bank Data As commands that duplicate the functions of the Load and Save buttons. It also includes commands to generate a New Bank (creates a bank of 128 default presets), load one of the Voyager factory banks (Moog Banks) and commands to Copy, Paste, Rename and Initialize selected presets in the User Bank. A Single Parameter Adjustment command is also available here, allowing you to adjust a single parameter without opening the Editor. These commands work on the currently selected User Bank.
Selecting Moog Banks opens a side menu, displaying the six factory banks: Anniversary Edition, Signature Edition, Twolf25 (Thomas Wolf bank), Zon25 (Zon Vern Piles bank), Electric Blue and RME. To load any one of these, simply select the desired factory bank. The selected bank will overwrite the presets in the current User Preset Bank (A-G).
Note: You may want to save your current preset bank prior to loading a new preset bank into the same bank location. Failure to do this will cause you to lose all of the Voyager presets in that bank.
Selecting Rename from the menu will display a message drawer as shown:
The Rename drawer allows you to change the preset name or the sound category. Clicking in the preset name field allows you to change (or completely replace) the preset name up to a maximum of 24 characters (12 per line). Additional characters beyond 12 per line will be ignored. The TAB key toggles the cursor between the upper and lower text lines.
Note: Besides selecting Rename from the Bank menu, you can also bring up the Rename drawer by double-clicking on a preset name in the User Bank (or the Editor).
Clicking on the category label in the Rename drawer produces a drop-down menu of assignable categories. Thirty-two categories are available here, including various leads, basses, and instruments. These categories match the default Librarian categories. To assign a category, simply select one from the list.
Clicking OK will store the changes and close the dialog box. Clicking Cancel will close the dialog box without any changes. The Single Parameter Adjustment command allows you to alter a single parameter for any preset, group of presets or entire bank. To use this command, first select the preset, group of presets or bank that you wish to affect, then select the Single Parameter Adjustment command. A drawer will appear below the main Window title bar:
Select the desired parameter from the Parameter pull-down menu and use the slider control to set the value. The Parameter menu contains more than one hundred different parameters to choose from, including all 24 characters in the preset name:
After choosing the desired parameter and value, click on Change to apply the change, OK to quit and close the drawer, or Cancel to cancel the function without changes. You can repeat this process multiple times by selecting a new parameter and value, then clicking the Change button. This is especially handy for making several global changes to groups of presets. Click OK when done. Note: You must select Change in order for the change to be applied. Simply clicking OK after selecting a parameter and value will not apply the change to the selected preset(s). When a change is made using the Single Parameter Adjustment feature, the change is only applied to the selected presets in the Editor User Bank they are not automatically written to the Voyager. For this reason, you should transfer your modified bank to the Voyager after making any parameter changes, or the changes may be lost. Note: Numerical values in the Single Parameter Adjustment drawer are displayed as 8-bit values (0-255) when the Editors Parameter Resolution is set to 8-bit resolution. Values are displayed as 16-bit values (0-65535) when the Editor Parameter Resolution is set to 16-bit resolution.
6.1.5 Organizing Presets Voyager presets can be sorted, reorganized and categorized by moving them from the User Bank to the Librarian. There are several ways of moving presets: By dragging a single preset to any Library category. Here weve selected a single preset (B-014 Outer Limits Clav) and are dragging it into the CLAV category:
By selecting a several presets (using the Command key) and dragging the group to any Librarian category. Here we selected three lead sounds and are dragging them into the BRIGHT LEAD category:
By selecting a group of presets and clicking on the Move arrow button. First we selected our Library category (Evolution), then selected a group of presets in the User Bank. Clicking on the Move arrow copies the selected presets into the Evolution Library category:
By copying a preset from the User Bank and pasting to the Library. You can use the Bank menu or the shortcut Copy and Paste commands. The preset will be pasted into the selected Library category:
By copying the entire User Bank (all 128 presets) using the Load From User Bank Data command in the Librarian menu:
When you copy a bank this way, you will be asked if you wish to sort the presets according to category before the bank is copied:
If you select OK, the presets will be placed in their corresponding categories in the Librarian. If you select NO, all presets will be placed into the currently selected (i.e. boldface) category. Selecting CANCEL will cancel the command.
Note: Because the User Bank and the Librarian are two different functions in the same window, each has its own separate copy & paste commands. For this reason, if you wish to move presets using copy/paste, you should choose COPY from the Bank menu, and then choose PASTE from the Librarian menu. You can simplify this process using the shortcut commands (refer to the Bank and Librarian menus, or see the shortcut command list at the end of this Guide). Note that when pasting a preset to the Librarian, the preset will be pasted into the currently selected category. That said, the easiest way to move presets between the User Bank and Librarian is either to drag and drop the selected presets or to use the Move arrows.
Tip: If you need to change the order of the presets in the User Bank (for an upcoming gig, for example), simply copy the entire bank into the Library (use the Librarians Load From User Bank Data command, but dont sort the bank into categories). You can then drag and drop selected presets back into the User Bank as desired.
6.2 VOYAGER PANEL The Voyager Panel is the second component in the Editor window. The Voyager Panel displays the settings of the Voyagers knobs and switches for the current preset. This is handy to give a visual reference as to how the selected preset is setup on the Voyager. While most of the knobs on the panel have a red dot to indicate their settings, pointer knobs and switches on the display indicate their actual positions. The yellow LCD displays the name of the selected preset:
New in version 2.0, the Voyager Panel is interactive, meaning it will not only respond to parameter changes made from the Voyager, it will send information to the Voyager when a control is changed. Except for the Fine Tune knob, all controls are active and movable. Rocker and rotary switches will change position when clicked, and knobs will respond using a rotary motion with the cursor. When the cursor is placed over a knob with a red dot, the corresponding parameter information is superimposed in the Touch Surface area. The parameters are displayed in both 8-bit and 16-bit versions:
Note: Any edits made using the Voyager Panel must be written to the Voyager in order to be saved.
6.3 LIBRARIAN The Librarian is the third component in the Editor window. The Librarian lets you store an unlimited number of Voyager presets. You can also have as many library files on your computer as you wish. The Librarian provides 32 sound categories to organize your Voyager sounds and have them available for immediate use. These categories correspond to the 32 sound categories in the Voyager (OS3.2), but any category can be renamed should you need to. A view of the Librarian function is shown below. Sound categories are displayed on the left along with two large Move buttons, a list of the Voyager presets is on the right, and buttons for library file functions are at the top.
The currently selected (active) sound category is indicated by boldface type and a triangle to the left of the name. In the figure above, Bright Lead is the active category, and it contains 8 presets. The presets in the Bright Lead category is displayed on the right. Note: When the number of presets exceeds what can be displayed in the list window, the program will add a scroll bar to access to all presets in the list. When a scroll bar is displayed, you can navigate the list using the scroll bar/scroll arrows, mouse wheel, or the HOME, END and ARROW keys on the Mac keyboard.
You can change to a different category simply by clicking on the desired category name. In the figure below we selected the Piano category, which only contains one preset:
6.3.1 Working with Libraries The Librarian has four buttons dedicated to Library file functions:
The Librarians Add Current Panel button adds the current preset from the User Bank to the active sound category. Note that new entries are always added to the end of the list, so if you have a lot of presets in a particular category, you may have to scroll down to see the new entry. The New button allows you to create a new Library. After clicking New, youll see a message dialog asking if you wish to save the existing library:
Clicking the OK button will present you with a save dialog box that will allow you to name and save the current library to the location you specify. After saving, you will have an empty (new) Library. Clicking the NO button will clear the contents of the existing library (all 32 categories), leaving an empty library. Clicking the Cancel button will cancel the operation and return you back to the library unchanged. The Load button allows you to load a library file into the program. Loading a library file is just like loading a bank file, but with a difference library file names have the extension.mvl. Note: All library files are loaded or saved as.mvl (Minimoog Voyager Library) files. As with bank files, Library files may be stored anywhere on your hard drive or removable media. When loading a library file, all files will be displayed, but only those with an.mvl extension will load. All other files will be ignored.
Tip: You can load a new library into an existing library to combine the presets of each. You can also combine presets from different banks using the Load from User Bank Data command. The Save button allows you to save the library file, displaying a dialog box that will allow you to name and save the current library to the location you specify.
6.3.2 Organizing Presets Presets are loaded into the Library using any of the methods described in Section 6.1.5, Organizing Presets. Note: Its a good idea to receive all data from the Voyager first before selecting Load From User Bank Data to insure that it corresponds to all the bank data in your Voyager. Presets can be moved from one Librarian category to another by dragging them with your mouse. Here we are dragging the preset HERBYS D6 from the active category to the Piano category:
The red category arrow is another way to move presets between categories. It works similarly to dragging, but with less mouse movement. Its also faster than dragging, and more precise. To use it, simply position the category arrow next to your desired category and click on the arrow. This action will move the selected presets from the active category to your chosen category. You move the red category arrow by clicking anywhere in the vertical space between the sound categories on the left and the preset list on the right. In this example, clicking on the arrow will move Jans Hammer from the active category to Bright Lead category:
As in the User Bank, you can make group and non-adjacent selections in any Library category using the SHIFT and COMMAND () keys. Using these modifier keys, multiple presets can be selected and moved from one category to another, or from the Library to the User Bank.
6.3.3 Copying Presets to the User Bank To copy presets from the Library to the User Bank, you can either drag the presets using the mouse, or use the left-facing Move arrow. In the example below, clicking on the Move arrow will copy the four selected Bass presets to the current User Bank:
When moving presets from the Library to the User Bank, the presets in the User Bank will be replaced by the ones from the Library and will be transmitted to the Voyager bank. A dialog box will ask you to confirm this operation:
Selecting OK will copy the presets into the User Bank and transmit them to the Voyager. Selecting NO will copy the presets into the User Bank without transmitting them to Voyager. Selecting Cancel will cancel the operation. Moving multiple presets into the User Bank will replace the selected preset in the User Bank and the equal number of consecutive presets. Here is an example illustrating what this means: 1. 2. 3. 4. Select Preset No 003 in the User Bank (any bank). Select 5 non-adjacent presets from the Librarian (any category). Drag the 5 selected Presets from the Librarian and drop them into the User Bank. A warning dialog will be displayed like the one above. Selecting OK will copy the five presets into the User Bank replacing Presets 003 - 007 with the five selected Librarian presets and transmit them to the to the Voyager at the same locations. If you select NO then the presets will not be transmitted to Voyager but they will still replace Presets 003 to 007 in the User Bank. Selecting Cancel will cancel the operation.
Note: Moving a preset from the User Bank to the Librarian will not automatically assign the corresponding sound category to the preset in the User Bank (the presets sound category in the User Bank will remain unchanged). However, if a preset moved from the Librarian to the User Bank it will include the corresponding sound category.
7.1 Parameter Resolution in the Editor The Editor window can display the Voyagers parameters in either 8-bit or 16-bit resolution. You select the bit value from the Editors Options menu:
When 8 BIT is selected, the Editor will display all parameters values in 8-bit resolution (value range 0 255). When 16 BIT is selected, the Editor will display all parameter values in 16-bit resolution (value range 0 65535). 7.2 Editing Preset Parameters Preset parameters are adjusted in the Editor window in several ways: Switches Clicking on a switch toggles it ON or OFF. Sliders Move a slider by clicking and dragging it in the desired direction. You can get finer control by placing the mouse cursor in the slider channel and clicking. This will increase or decrease the parameter value by 1 for each click. When 16-bit data values are displayed, it will take many clicks to register a change. When 8-bit data values are displayed, each click will change the value by 1. Slider data values can also be adjusted by clicking on the value and manually entering a new value:
Note: For 8-bit resolution, valid data values are 0-255. For 16-bit resolution, valid data values are 0-65535. If you type in a value outside of these ranges, it will be ignored. Pull-down menus Click to pull down a menu in the Editor window. Menu selections are made by doubleclicking on a menu item. This action will select that item and close the menu. Parameter groups You can copy a complete parameter group from one preset to another. Click on a parameter group label (LFO, Mod Busses, Oscillators, Mixer, Filters, Envelopes, Pot Map or Touch Surface) to get a pop-up menu. Select COPY to copy the parameters, and PASTE to paste the parameters. The example shown below is the result of clicking the Envelope parameter group bar:
Presets can be auditioned in the Editor window by clicking on the piano keyboard at the bottom of the window. To the right of the right of the piano keyboard are the Pitch and Mod wheels. Youll find that the Editors on-screen Pitch Bend and Mod wheels work just like the real thing; the Pitch Bend wheel springs back to its center position when released, but the Mod wheel stays put when you adjust it. Above the Editor keyboard, and to the left of the Preset Name field is an Auto Dump LED button:
Auto Dump is a feature that resynchronizes the Editor with the Voyager if the MIDI connection between the Voyager and the Editor is interrupted, either accidentally or intentionally. When enabled, the Editor periodically requests the edited preset from the Voyager (you will see the Voyagers MIDI LED will flash periodically when Auto Dump is selected). A complete preset update is sent with each request. You can safely keep Auto Dump disabled and enable it if you ever lose the connection between the Voyager and the Editor during an editing session.
then use the pulldown menu to select a preset from that bank:
With a preset selected, the Morpher slider will allow you to morph between the selected preset and the current preset in the Editor, and audition the sound at any point. The current Editor preset is positioned at 0% (slider at far left) and the selected preset at 100% (slider at far right). The smoothness of the transition from 0% to 100% is highly dependant on the choice of presets. Compatible sounds tend to transition smoother than contrasting sounds, but possibilities for new sound combinations exist at every point. Experimentation is encouraged.
Note: As you morph between the two presets with the Morpher slider, you will notice that the preset name in the Editor (and the Voyagers LCD) changes. This is normal, as the program is morphing the names of the presets along with the parameters. The current preset name is displayed at slider position 0%(far left), and the selected preset name is displayed at slider position 100% (far right). Values in between will scramble the name.
The Cancel button closes the nanoM window. Note: You must close the nanoM window to order to return to Editor program.
9 PROGRAM WINDOWS - THE PRESET GENETICS WINDOW The Preset Genetics window is selected from the Options menu of the main page, or from the Editor window under the Generator menu. Preset Genetics allows you to quickly build new sounds from two existing ones in a similar fashion to breeding. Parameters of each of the two sources (parents) are combined using four different functions to generate a new bank of presets (kids). A view of the Preset Genetics window is shown below. The two source banks (parent banks, also called mommy and daddy) are located in the upper left, along with buttons for the four different genetics functions. The generated bank (kids) and the top offspring bank are located in the lower left. On the right is a scrollable filters window that allows user-selected parameters to be excluded from the genetics function. Directly below the filters window is a single parameter adjustment function that permits you to change one of the preset parameters for an entire Voyager bank. Both parent banks use the presets from the User Bank, and these banks will automatically load when the Preset Genetics window is opened. Any pair of the 128 available presets can be used for the genetics functions (one each from mother and father). The result of applying the user-selected genetics functions creates the child bank, and any keepers auditioned from the child bank can then be moved into the top offspring bank.
9.1 Single Parameter Adjustment This function allows you to change one of the preset parameters for an entire Voyager bank. It works similar to the Single Parameter Adjustment in the User Bank. Simply select the desired parameter from the pull-down menu:
and use the slider control to set the desired value:
When you click OK, a new Kids bank is generated from the Mommy bank. Every preset in the Kids bank now contains the newly modified parameter. To save the change, select Replace Voyager Bank with the Kids Bank from the FILE menu. Clicking OK will send the Kids bank to the Voyager. Clicking No will not update the Voyager bank, but will update the Mommy bank with the changes, allowing you to make additional changes if desired.
Note: Numerical values for Single Parameter Adjustment are displayed as 8-bit values (0-255) when the Editor Parameter Resolution is set to 8-bit resolution. Numerical values are displayed as 16-bit values (0-65535) when the Editor Parameter Resolution is set to 16-bit resolution.
9.2 Moving Genetics Presets Presets created in the Genetics window can be moved in several ways: Selected presets can be dragged from either the Top Offspring or Kids bank directly into any Librarian category. Selected presets can be dragged from either the Top Offspring or Kids bank directly into the User Bank. When dragging a preset to the User Bank, a message dialog will be displayed asking if you also want to write the preset to the Voyager's bank:
Clicking OK will send the Top Offspring or Kids preset to the Voyager. Selecting No will not update the Voyager bank, but will update the Users Bank with the change. Selecting Cancel will cancel the operation.
Note: The Preset Genetics module does not support the same multiple selection options as the Librarian and User Banks (i.e. the SHIFT and COMMAND keys have no function).
9.3 The Preset Genetics Menus The File menu contains commands to manipulate the banks and files in the Preset Genetics window:
Save Top Offspring As Library File permits saving the complete Top Offspring bank as a separate library file, regardless of the number of presets in the bank. Paste Top Offspring To Library will copy the contents of the Top Offspring bank to the Librarian, pasting the presets into the end of the Library (unassigned) category. The Clear Top Offspring command will delete all entries in the Top Offspring bank, while leaving the parent and child banks undisturbed. Refresh Parent Banks will copy the current contents of each selected bank into each parent bank. For example, if Mommy is the A bank, and Daddy is the B bank, selecting Refresh Parent Banks will place the current contents of the A bank into the Mommy, and the current contents of the B bank into the Daddy. The Replace Voyager Bank with the Kids Bank command will replace the contents of the User Bank with the modified presets in the Kids Bank. When using this function you will be presented with an option to send this bank to the Voyager. This function will also replace the Mommy bank, allowing you to continue modifying other preset parameters. The Close command will close the Preset Genetics window and return you to the main window. Alternatively, you can also click the red button in the upper left corner. The Mommy and Daddy menus allow you to independently select any of the seven banks for the genetics function as shown:
Two keys are programmed to adjust octaves (increment/decrement): o Octave down (-1) p Octave up (+1) Octave switching ranges from 2 to +8 (ten octaves). When the octave switching keys are pressed, a pop-up window briefly appears showing the change:
Tip: You can sustain a note by pressing down a note key and while it is depressed, press an octave key. A MIDI Note ON command will be sent without a corresponding MIDI Note OFF, causing a sustained, or stuck note. To un-stick the note, press the Space Bar. The Space Bar will send an All Notes Off command that shuts off all MIDI notes.
Two keys are programmed to adjust note velocity (increment/decrement): u Note velocity decrease (-5) i Note velocity increases (+5) Note velocities can be set from 0 to 125 in increments of 5. A note velocity of 0 is the equivalent of no note played. When the velocity switching keys are pressed, a pop-up window briefly appears showing the change:
Note: Changing the velocity values using the computer keyboard is the same as changing the Piano Note Velocity in MIDI Setup Window.
Note: Some Voyager presets are not programmed to respond to Velocity. If such a preset is selected, changing the velocity value here will have no effect. As notes are playing on the computer keyboard, a status display located in the lower Preset Genetics window (as shown below on the left), and over the keyboard display in the Editor (as shown on the right) reveals the MIDI channel, note and velocity values being transmitted:
11 SHORTCUTS & KEY COMMANDS Most of the menus in the Minimoog Voyager Editor Librarian have key command shortcuts for certain items on the menus. A key command shortcut is a combination of one or more modifier keys and an alphanumeric key. Modifier keys used in this program are the OPTION key () and COMMAND key (). Note: The COMMAND key is also known as the Cloverleaf key, or Apple key. Here is the list of shortcut commands found in the menus:
MAIN WINDOW Moog Voyager menu: H Hide Moog Voyager H Hide Others Q Quit Bank menu: L Load User Bank Data S Save User Bank Data C Copy V Paste N Rename I Initialize Librarian menu: L Load Voyager File S Save Voyage File As C Copy V Paste X Cut D Delete A Select All N Rename Panel MIDI menu: M Midi Setup R Receive User Bank T Transmit User Bank U Receive Preset Sound Options menu: G Preset Genetics

APPENDIX A OSX AUDIO MIDI SETUP PROCEDURE Steps 1 through 4 should only be necessary if you are setting up a MIDI interface for the first time, or if you are connecting to a new MIDI interface. Some MIDI interfaces may require additional connection setup. Refer to the manufacturers instructions for details. The OSX Audio MIDI setup can also be used to connect external keyboard controller to route and play notes on your Voyager/RME. Step by step OSX MIDI setup: 1. If you are installing a MIDI interface for the first time, or if you are connecting to a new interface, follow the manufacturers recommended installation procedure for guidelines on the installation process. This will generally mean either installing an internal MIDI interface board into the Macintosh chassis, or simply connecting an external USB or Firewire MIDI interface, then installing the driver software. 2. Upon completing step 1, reboot the computer (or power ON) and open Audio MIDI Setup (found in Applications/Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup). You can also use the Finder to search for Audio MIDI Setup. 3. In the Audio MIDI Setup window, select the MIDI Devices tab below the title bar. You should now see an icon for your new MIDI interface. In this example, we are adding an M-Audio MIDI Sport 1x1 USB interface. (Note: Depending on your Mac OS version, the Audio MIDI Setup window may look slightly different from the one shown below)
4. Click on the Show Info icon to reveal the Properties window for the new interface. In the Properties window, click on the More Information arrow to expand the window. Enter the desired Name, Port and MIDI information in the proper fields (this will depend on your setup) and click the APPLY button.
User Notes for Minimoog Voyager Software Update 3.0
I. CHANGES TO OPERATING SYSTEM The Minimoog Voyager Operating System version 3.0 (V3.0) contains important and powerful new functions for the instrument. This enhancement requires an upgrade to both your Voyager hardware and to the V3.0 software. Here is an overview of the modification and enhancements: V3.0 extends the current single bank of 128 presets to 7 banks of 128 presets for a total of 896 user accessible presets. 768 of the 896 presets are loaded with Voyager presets from the Rack Mount Edition, Electric Blue, Anniversary Edition, Performer Edition, Signature Edition, and a bank made by German synthesist Thomas Wolf. The remainder of the preset locations are loaded with default presets blank canvasses for your sonic creations. V3.0 comes with an enhanced feature that allows the player to transpose the entire keyboard by up to 2 octaves up or down.
MIDI Enhancements: Allows you to send either 7 or 14 bit resolution CC messages from the Mod Wheel. Optionally reduces the amount of MIDI data being sent from the Touch Surface.
(These last two enhancements allow the Voyager to work better with older MIDI equipment). There have been a few changes in both the Panel Mode and Master Mode. Please take note of the changes on the following pages.
II. PANEL MODE: Menu numbering scheme: 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 T.S. Reduction Ext. Audio Pot Real Panel Param (used to be in EDIT mode under REAL PANEL CONTR) LCD Contrast (used to be in Master Mode)
2.1 T.S. REDUCTION T.S. Reduction thins the number of MIDI CCs sent by the Touch Surface inputs when more than one is used at a time. The amount of MIDI data produced by these inputs can be immense, and can crash lesser MIDI devices. 2.2 EXT. AUDIO POT This allows the External Audio Pot to scroll through the presets. It is a faster way to change presets instead of using +/- buttons. When this is on, turning the External Audio control changes the preset number in the display. Press ENTER to load a new preset. 2.3 REAL PANEL PARAM Real Panel PARAM is a function that enables the operation of the Voyager from the front panel. To use this function, enter PANEL MODE by pressing the PANEL button. Press the +1 key to highlight REALPANEL PARAM and press ENTER. The screen prompts: Load the actual Panel Parameters Yes/No? Use the CURSOR button to select Yes and press ENTER. The sound produced when the keyboard is played is now determined by the settings of the front panel controls. 2.4 LCD CONTRAST When this is selected, use the +/-1 buttons to change the LCD contrast. Different angles of the front panel may require different contrast settings for comfortable viewing of the display. CHANGING BANKS In PANEL mode, note the current Bank Number in the upper right corner of the screen (B1 is Bank 1). Hold down the CURSOR Key and push the +/-1 buttons to change banks. Note the text change to the Bank Number (B1, B2, B3and so on). Once inside the desired bank use +/-1 buttons to change presets. If the PANEL mode function Ext. Audio Pot is on, use the External Audio Level control to scroll through the presets. With this function, press ENTER to load a new preset. The Voyager can receive Program Change messages only for the current Bank. Presets can only be sent or received from the current Bank.
KEYBOARD OCTAVE TRANSPOSITION Press the EDIT key twice to access the transpose menu. Display will read -2 -1 Null +1 +2 Note: NULL is the Voyagers Default setting. Push the +/-1 buttons to shift octave to the desired location. For example, if you would like to set your keyboard up 2 octaves, press the +1 twice.
Note: The Envelope Gate must be set to Keyboard for this feature to be utilized. When the power is turned off to the Voyager the octa ve transpose feature is reset to the default setting. III. MASTER MODE Menu page numbering scheme: 1.1MIDI Run. Status 2.1 MIDI Mod Wheel 1.1 MIDI RUN. STATUS MIDI Running Status is used to reduce the MIDI data sent when a number of MIDI messages with the same Status Byte are sent. Running status eliminates the Status Byte. Some MIDI devices can handle Running Status, and some cant, so you have an option of turning this on or off. To use, select Midi Running Status and press ENTER. The Screen will prompt Switch on MIDI Running Status? Yes/No. To turn it on, use the Cursor button to select Yes and press ENTER. To turn it off use the Cursor button to select No and press ENTER. 2.1 MIDI MOD WHEEL This feature allows you to select transmission of 7 or 14 bit MIDI CC messages from the Mod Wheel. To access this function, select MIDI Mod Wheel from the Master Mode menu with +/-1 buttons and press ENTER. Use +/-1 to change desired setting to either 7 bit or 14 bit resolution. Only CC1 is sent choosing 7 bit. With 14 bit, both CC1 (Most Significant Byte (MSB)) and C33 (Least Significant Byte (LSB) are sent. www.moogmusic.com Prepared 7/14/05 2005 Moog Music Inc.
