The Moog Matriarch Semi-Modular Paraphonic Analog Synthesizer is a sonic playpen that goes back to Moog's modular roots of discovery, invention and modulation. With a built-in arpeggiator, sequencer and stereo analog delay, this Semi-Modular Synth offering allows you to start playing immediately with no patching required.
The Moog Matriarch has a completely analog sound engine and modulation engine resulting in a unit that delivers incredible power and immeasurable beauty. Based on Bob Moog's original circuit design, the 100% analog signal path covers everything from overdriven monophonic bass to gently evolving paraphonic plucks that cycle into a wash of infinite delay trails.
90 Modular Patch Points
With 90 modular patch points that are accessible via the included 3.5mm patch cables, you can explore openly with endless possibilities all with true analog sound. Although the design is such that you don't have to do any patching to get up and running, the ability to do this allows the Moog Matriarch to transform from a performance keyboard into a fully modular analog synthesizer at a moment's notice, resulting in an incredibly versatile unit that is as much at home in the studio as it is in on stage. Tap into an endless supply of sounds via the patch points and you'll soon find a wealth of creative ideas and expression at your fingertips.
The Moog Matriarch features a 256 step sequencer that allows up to 4 notes of paraphony to be sequenced, shifted or stored intuitively. Stack the analog VCOs to play on a massive 4 oscillator mono synth or utilise the power of vintage-designed stereo ladder filters, dual Envelope Generators and stereo Analog Delays to explore a sonic landscape of space and time.
In addition to its standalone function, the Moog Matriarch is also able to process external sources with a 1/4-inch external audio input for guitars, drum machines and more. It also works as a powerful keyboard front-end for expanding a DFAM, Mother-32, Grandmother or Eurorack modular system.
With this many features, it won't take you long to get lost in the Moog Matriarch Semi-Modular Paraphonic Analog Synthesizer. An infinite sonic playground with a wealth of configurable options, the Matriarch is endlessly customisable and powerful addition to any player's studio set-up or stage show.
