- A Minimoog Voyager, a monophonic analog synthesizer, owned by record producer and artist J Dilla. The synthesizer features a small keyboard set into a wooden frame beneath a control panel. The control board consists of black knobs, red and blue switches, and two different sized screens. The control board has hinge and stand that allows it to be propped up to better face the user. A brass plaque appears above piano keys on right side, and reads, [minimoog®/voyager™]. On the back of the control panel is a label in the bottom left corner that reads, [MOOG MUSIC, Inc./ASHEVILLE, NC/minimoog® Voyager/SERIAL NO. 263].
