It’s been just a few months since Moog introduced the four-voice analog Matriarch at Moogfest. But it is lastly really shipping to clients. The $1,999 synth is the flagship entry within the firm’s semi-modular lineup, that additionally consists of the similarly-styled Grandmother, in addition to the Mother-32 and DFAM (Drummer from Another Mother). What units the Matriarch other than the remainder of the lineup although, is it is four-note paraphony. Which simply signifies that, whilst you can break up the 4 oscillators as much as play separate notes, all of them share a single filter and envelope. Being “semi-modular” means the Matriarch makes some scrumptious synth sounds proper out of the field. But, the actual enjoyable occurs while you begin rerouting issues with cables and the 90 completely different patch factors on the entrance.
