Moog Matriarch analog synth and Korg Nu Tekt NTS-1 digital synthesizer, soundscaping and jamming fun


Published on Feb 6, 2020 Expanding Sound

"Last week i had some fun playing with the NTS-1 and some of my Korg Volcas. This week I figured it'd be fun to use the effects on a bigger synth, like the Moog Matriarch.

I connected the Matriarch to the NTS-1 by using the midi connection first. The Matriarch is the Midi Controller for the NTS-1s digital oscillator. I used my little bits 1/8th inch to midi adapter and it seemed to work fine. Although there was an occasional Midi Drift. I also connected the Matriarch to the NTS-1 through the audio input, so all sound is coming from the NTS-1's headphone jack/audio output. This way the NTS-1 can process the Matriarch with its effect section. The reverbs made the Matriarch sound even bigger, and one of the surprising stand out effects was the flanger! I usually hate flanger on my guitar but really enjoyed how it sounded here on the NTS-1 with the Matriarch. The oscillators blend very nicely together, sometimes surprisingly so. It was easy to make some really nice soundscapes and ambient chords using both keyboards at once.

I'm not really playing a song here, just exploring some sounds..... I tried to cut and move on when I felt like I was dragging at some points. It's mostly a little noodling and playing with the Matriarchs sequencer and the NTS-1's arpeggiator here and there. Hope you enjoy it!"
