Favorite Gear - Minimoog Voyager

This is by far my most beloved instrument, if there ever would be a fire in the studio I for sure wouldn't leave without my Minimoog.
Can't think of a single Nomi track in which I didn't use this monophonic beast too: deep bass lines, screaming leads, hypnotising drones and many more mind blowing analog sounds.

The Minimoog Voyager is a modernised reincarnation of the Minimoog Model D from the 70's, used by artists such as Sun Ra, Herbie Hancock, Wendy Carlos, Jean-Michel Jarre and Daft Punk.

It features three oscillators, noise generator, external input, x/y touchpad and the famous Moog filter (-24db/octave 4-pole transistor ladder lowpass filter).
My Minimoog has 2 expansions modules which turn the Voyager into a semi-modular system.

More than often I process the unfiltered sound of the high-end Moog oscillators via the insert jack thru external filters to create different synth sounds.
My favourite FX to use with the Voyager would be the Roland Space echo, who doesn't love that 70's sound?
