New Moog Matriarch Revealed

Published on Apr 24, 2019 Moog Music Inc

"Matriarch: Place / Time / Memory illuminates the interconnectedness between one’s sense of place, our perceptions of sound organized in time, and the impressions they leave behind.

Exploring the Moog Matriarch synthesizer from their personal home studios, multi-instrumentalist Lisa Bella Donna, Ghostly Intl. electronic producer Max Ravitz (Patricia), Anthem / Call of Duty / Assassins Creed composer Sarah Schachner and Paris Strother of Grammy-nominated R&B duo We Are KING, express 4 unique sonic perspectives on the new instrument within the context of their own creative environments."

Update:I'm not seeing the White Noise Generator, Spring Reverb, or Linear FM that are featured on the Grandmother. Interesting if this is indeed the case, and good news for those that invested in a Grandmother. Some quick diffs compared to the Grandmother:

49 velocity sensitive keys with aftertouch vs 32 velocity minus aftertouch
4 oscillators vs 2
2 filters vs 1
Dual VCA
Second simple LFO
Analog Delay
3 bipolar attenuators with ring mod vs 1
2x4 mults vs. 1x4
Mono, duo, & 4 note paraphonic vs Mono
256 step sequencer adds 4 note per step & 12 stored patterns vs 3
90 patch points (for the added modules) vs 41

And again, the Matriarch appears to be missing the White Noise Generator, Spring Reverb, and Linear FM on the Grandmother.

"The Pinnacle of Moog's Semi-Modular Family of Analog Synthesizers.

Moog Matriarch is a patchable 4-note paraphonic analog synthesizer with a built-in Sequencer, Arpeggiator, stereo Ladder Filters, and stereo Analog Delay. Create rich evolving chord patterns immediately with 'no patching required', then tap into an abundance of inspiring textures, new sounds, and an endless supply of happy accidents through Matriarch’s 90 modular patch points. Based on the vintage circuitry of classic Moog synthesizer modules, Matriarch is a catalyst for creative ideas and a medium for multidimensional expression.

Sequence and perform in mono, duo, and 4-note paraphonic modes.

Classic and ping-pong style repeats with lush infinite delay trails.

Create, mangle and explore the endless expanse of sound with 90 modular patch points.

Matriarch is an analog synthesizer with an emphasis on imagination. The pinnacle of Moog’s semi-modular family of synthesizers, Matriarch’s patchable architecture and vintage 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, saved, and shifted 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, Matriarch’s 100% analog signal path spans a dynamic sonic vocabulary – from overdriven monophonic bass to gently evolving paraphonic plucks that cycle through waveshapes into a wash of infinite delay trails. Coupling the power of vintage stereo ladder filters, dual Envelope Generators, stereo Analog Delays, and stereo VCAs, Matriarch delivers a multidimensional 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 to 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.

**Matriarch Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer begins shipping in Summer of 2019."

"It's that lovely time of year again

Multi-tracked, about 7 tracks.

I used NI RC24 Reverb and Replika Delay.
Then a bit of stereo widening, some high pass filtering and a touch of top end EQ."
