  • Using a MIDI interface, connect the Voyager to your computer

  • Enable the Voyager as a MIDI input device to Omnisphere in the host software you’re using (DAW, Standalone, etc.)

  • Activate the Voyager Hardware Profile in Omnisphere 2.5 or higher

  • Set up the Touch Surface to control Omnisphere’s Orb (optional)



HOST CONNECTION

Open your host (DAW, Standalone, etc.) and make sure the MIDI interface the Voyager is connected to (in the case of the images below, the E-MU Xmidi 1×1 Tab) is enabled as a MIDI input device.

Open Omnisphere and from the header select the HW menu button:

From the drop-down menu, select “Moog Voyager” to activate that hardware profile.



TOUCH SURFACE SETUP (optional)

The Touch Surface on the Voyager is an exceptional performance controller. When using the Voyager hardware profile in Omnisphere, you can use the touchpad to activate and control the Orb for instant sonic manipulations. Setting it up takes just a few simple steps and it can be especially effective for exciting performance techniques.
