Moog Matriarch Dark Semi-Modular 4-Note Paraphonic Analog Synthesizer
Matriarch Dark is a new color variant for Moog Matriarch. Matriarch Dark presents the same great features, sounds and specs as the original colorful Matriarch, now offered in an all-black color scheme that invokes the timeless look of Moog's classic modular control panels.
Moog 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 classic Moog circuits reward open exploration with endless sonic possibilities and unparalleled analog sound.
- Monophonic, duophonic and 4-note paraphonic voice modes
- Stereo analog delay with up to 700ms of MIDI syncable stereo or ping-pong style repeats
- 256-step sequencer with up to 4 notes per step and 12 stored patterns
- Sequencer can be decoupled from Matriarch to independently sequence external gear
- Arpeggiator with selectable modes: order played, forward/backward, random
- Semi-modular analog synthesizer with no patching required
- 90 modular patch points for endless exploration
- Expressive 49-note Fatar keyboard with patchable velocity and aftertouch
- 4 analog oscillators with selectable waveshape and hard sync per oscillator
- Full-range analog LFO with 6 selectable waveshapes
- Dual analog filters with parallel (high pass / low pass), stereo (low pass / low pass) and series (high pass / low pass) modes
- Dual analog ADSR envelopes
- Dual analog VCAs
- 3 bipolar voltage controlled attenuators with ring mod capability
- 2×4 parallel wired unbuffered mults
- Additional simple analog LFO for adding modulation to delay, filters and VCAs
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, 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. Incorporating the power of vintage design stereo ladder filters, dual envelope generators, stereo analog delays and stereo VCAs, 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 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.
