"Introducing Dark Series for Matriarch & Grandmother

Dark Series for Matriarch and Grandmother strikes the perfect balance between classic and modern, featuring an all-black aesthetic that invokes the timeless look of early Moog modular systems—with all the functionality and versatility these two state-of-the-art sound design machines are known for.

Today, we are excited to announce a new addition to our semi-modular family: Dark Series for Grandmother and Matriarch. The new visual twist for these two synthesizers is a nod to the modular control panel designs that inspired their very creation.
Grandmother and Matriarch's circuits, spirit, and analog effects are inspired by the classic Moog modular synthesizers designed by Bob Moog during the '60s and '70s. These instruments quickly became a staple in studio setups and live performance settings, a go-to first synthesizer for beginners, and a multifaceted creative tool used by musicians of all skill levels to explore the power of analog sound.
A complement to the distinct multi-colored artwork of the original Matriarch and Grandmother synthesizers, Dark Series presents a style option that celebrates the intersection of tradition and innovation.

New Patches & Firmware Updates

Significant firmware updates for Matriarch and Grandmother are now available for all owners. These updates feature a new sync engine that keeps the internal arp/sequencer, analog clock, and MIDI all tightly locked in phase; a new easy method to reset global settings to defaults; a new Envelope Multi-Trig mode for Grandmother; and many other enhancements, features, and bug fixes for both instruments based on customer feedback.

Alongside these firmware enhancements, new exploratory patches are now available to download for Matriarch and Grandmother registered owners. These 30 inspiring patches (16 for Grandmother and 14 for Matriarch) are designed to guide your eternal experimentation and open your mind to each instrument’s unparalleled analog sound."
