If you're interested in traditional MiniMoogy sounds, you might not need the Voyager's additional LFOs. Then again, I have other synths for multiple oscillators and wacky LFOing. And you are restricted a bit by the LP's keyboard size and the keys aren't that great either--at least not on my Tribute.
As for the MoogerFoogers, some of them cover the same territory as the Voyager, others don't. That FreqBox does give you an extra oscillator for hard syncing if you want to go that route.
I used to have a Voyager RME, and seriously exploited feedback with the second filter, due to how the left versus the right output had them separated. So if I remember correctly, the right output went to the mixer and the left output went back to the audio input. Changing the cutoff value of the feedback line with the spacing knob, combined with changing the pre-mix tone with something attached to the Mix Insert jack, made for some rather outlandish tones. Not overdriven like the Minimoog, but rather, the increased feedback changed the phase of harmonics(notch for some, boost for others) and squealed when the amplitude hit a certain threshold.
All the basses from 18 seconds on in this montage clip use this feedback approach:
That final one not only used an aural exciter in the Mix Insert path, but crossmod of the oscillators by Osc3, including modulating itself.
Another thing exclusive to the Voyager was combining the waveshape modulation with FM via Oscillator 3. Some fun to be had in performance with not quite triangular vibrato, for instance. It got to where I wished I had sprung for the keyboard version just for the touchpad, for controlling this technique.
