Today, Moog has announced their latest synth, the Matriarch, to be shown starting today at Moogfest. The new synth is described as the pinnacle of patchable Moog synthesizers and was built to inspire imagination and creativity. The 4-note paraphonic synth takes the Grandmother to the next level, with dual stereo ladder filters, stereo delay, etc. Matriarch’s 4 analog VCOs can be split into 4 notes of paraphony that can be sequenced, shifted, and stored with the instrument’s intuitive 256 step sequencer, or stacked in unison to create a massive 4 oscillator mono synth.
Though Matriarch’s semi-modular design requires absolutely no patching, 90 modular patch points are easily accessible throughout the panel via the included 3.5mm patch cables. This powerful electronic instrument is a highly-versatile addition to any stage or studio that can effortlessly transform from a performance keyboard into a fully modular analog synthesizer at a moment’s notice.
The synth will be available for pre-order through Guitar Center, and on-site at the pop-up store in the modular market place. Visitors will be able to watch Moog employees building the synths on-site as well.
