I like the the Mahogany / Fire as well: did you order it on purpose or just because you found it available in stock in some shop? Also is the red backlight any eye-tiring?

 

It was the only one available at the time I wanted to get one... I'm glad I didn't have to make that decision... It's like having to chose between 4 or 5 really nice dishes at a restaurant. You know you'll get full and enjoy the meal no matter what ;-)

Here are a few of mine throughout the years.

Great photos, thanks a lot. I've also seen a YouTube video about Novamusik's custom versions with matching switches and jack sockets colors. But these seem to be available only through them. Interestingly they have a custom version where the wheels were blinking in sync with the LFO: is that a standard feature?

Ripper, the blinking wheels is a mod that any select or blue can have.....it is a mod that the factory must do though....they put an on/off switch inside the unit to defeat it if it becomes a distraction (it would drive me nuts). Also, I don't care for all the matching nuts on the back panel, the inputs are not all the same so color coding (at least 2) is helpful.

While we are at it let me also ask: that Retune/Recalibrate option being offered through the Moog website as a Factory Mod, well - assuming you buy a new Voyager right now, by when do you think you'll need that?

Also, is it possible to load a new OS version through Sysex dump or (again) you need to go through a Factory Mod?

My first Voyager was an Electric Blue (which I sold) and I thought it looked amazing. My second Voyager is also an Electric Blue, but had I factory ordered, I would have gotten a Mahogany/Solar or maybe Walnut/Jade.

Only thing I'd need to get used in the Fire models is that pinkish color of the front panel when the unit is switched off or dimmed.

 

If you think the backlighting is unnecessary for your needs you can save some money by going with the Performer Edition. I almost wish they never offered the color options because I went nuts making a decision as well. But, whatever the backlighting you do get, I'll tell you this....the mahogany cabinet is one beautiful piece of work!
