Matriarch (Ambient) Friend

Hey guys,

I have a Matriarch which I'm in love with! My intention has always been to develop it further through eurorack and I think I'm ready

As I know is needed, I have an idea what I want to do with it, and as more of an ambient styled creator I simply want a small rig primarily focused on extra modulation capabilties more so than voices which I'm happy (at least for now) are covered by the Matriarch, and FX which I have covered with external pedals (H9 x2)...

In terms of the case type/size, that isn't something I am looking to change, so only swaps if there's something you'd change?

Take a look, and with my goals in mind, praise/criticise/suggest changes etc all as nicely as possible... Please?

If you have any ideas how this rig may interact well with he Matriarch as well and you care to share your two cents, feel free, I'd love to get your input!

Looks nice, definitely should cover lot's of modulation territory, if it were me, I would look at some
logic modules or some switching. Though, there is probably some logic stuff in the disting, I don't
have on so I cant say.

Generally, I tend to recommend maze from Livestock Electronics as it covers a lot of bases and is
super cool for being capable of animated signal routing throughout your system. It's also a mixer, vca,
inverter, sequencer, mute and probably a lot more.

The Livestock Maze is something I hadn't really looked at before but seems really versatile!

My aim is really utilities/modulation with a little voice processing/effects for added fun! I'm happy with the matriarchs lush voices so not trying to replace them with other VCO's etc...

This is where I'm at currently:

Any other thoughts would be really appreciated

Have you seen the vortex generator? It's a nice smaller and quite a bit cheaper alternative to MATHS.

My first thought is some reverb/delay would really push you into ambient territory. Maybe keep the original Eurorack configuration since it is pretty solid, and tack on a good reverb pedal like a Strymon?
