Moog Matriarch

Moog Matriarch Dark

For those who’ve been toying with the idea, the Matriarch is a great way to get into modular synthesis. Its 4-oscillator 4-note paraphonic architecture provides plenty of creative sound-shaping capability.

Meanwhile, the Arp/Sequencer section allows you to build patterns for a more electronic feel and the stereo delay is a welcome addition. The Matriarch’s true power, however, lies in its ability to interface with other modular gear.
