Moog MATRIARCH Analogue Synthesizer

Moog MATRIARCH Analogue Synthesizer is the mother of imagination & pinnacle of Moog’s semi-modular family of synthesizers. Matriarch’s patchable architecture and classic Moog circuits reward open exploration with endless sonic possibilities and unparalleled analog sound.

Easily create rich harmonic shapes with up to 4 notes of paraphony that can be sequenced, shifted, and stored with Matriarch’s intuitive 256 step sequencer, or stack the analog VCOs to play on a massive 4 oscillator mono synth.

With a deep assortment of synthesis modules based on Bob Moog’s original circuit designs. The Matriarch strengths lie in the 100% analog signal path, spanning a super dynamic sonic vocabulary. You can go from overdriven monophonic bass to gently evolving paraphonic plucks that cycle through waveshapes into a wash of infinite delay trails, in a flash.

Couple this power of vintage-design with the stereo ladder filters, dual Envelope Generators, stereo Analog Delays, and stereo VCAs, and Matriarch delivers a multi-dimensional sound that empowers the sonic exploration of space and time.

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.

In addition to its standalone function, Matriarch is also an ideal processor of external sound sources and a powerful keyboard front-end for expanding a DFAM, Mother-32, Grandmother, or Eurorack modular system.

The Moog MATRIARCH Analogue Synthesizer is the pinnacle of creative innovation and flexibility, as you would expect from any worthy matriarch!
