Introducing the Moog Matriarch, your new favourite semi-modular analogue synth. The Matriarch takes the basic principles and setup of the popular Grandmother synth, however, it has four oscillators over the Grandmother’s two and can be used in mono, duo and even four-note paraphonic modes.
With four oscillators and the ability to run in paraphonic mode, the new Moog Matriarch earns its place as the head of the family.
Most of the Matriarch’s components are based on classic Moogs from the company’s rich 55-year history, with oscillators based on the fabled MiniMoog and mixer based on the CP3 module.
As you’d expect, the Matriarch comes with a host of exciting features, including a 256-note sequencer, customisable arpeggiator, stereo ladder filters, stereo analog delay and an analog LFO with six selectable waveshapes.
The result is a beautifully organic analogue sound straight out of the box, however, if you’re feeling adventurous there’s always the option of messing around with the 90 modular patch points.
Moog states that the semi-modular design enables you to “tap into an abundance of inspiring textures, new sounds, and an endless supply of happy accidents.”
