Moog music announces Matriarch 4-note paraphonic analog synthesizer

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. Capable of creating rich evolving chord patterns immediately with “no patching required”, Matriarch invites access to an abundance of inspiring textures, new sounds, and an endless supply of happy accidents through its 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.

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. Matriarch’s 4 analog VCOs can be split into 4 notes of paraphony that can be sequenced, shifted, and stored with the instrument’s intuitive 256 step sequencer, or stacked in unison to create 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-designed stereo ladder filters, dual Envelope Generators, stereo Analog Delays, and stereo VCAs, Matriarch delivers a multi-dimensional sound that empowers the sonic exploration of both 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 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.

Moog Music will be offering a Sneak Peek of Matriarch to the public this Weekend at Moogfest 2019

Ahead of Matriarch landing in studios and on stages this summer, Moog Music is offering a hands-on preview of the new instrument during Moogfest 2019, the annual music, art, and technology festival held in honor of electronic pioneer Bob Moog. The American synthesizer manufacturer brings their synth-building experience to Durham with the Moog Pop-Up Factory, where Moog invites the public to play and explore pre-release Matriarch synthesizers.

Visitors also have the opportunity to discover what it takes to bring a new piece of technology into the world by engaging Moog Production Engineers as they live-build Matriarch onsite. The Moog Pop-Up Factory is free and open to the public April 25 - 28 at 300 Blackwell Street (Bay 7) Durham, NC 27701.

Preorder Matriarch Today

An exclusive Moogfest Edition of Matriarch is available for pre-order through Guitar Center, either onsite at the Moog Pop-Up Factory or from from now through April 28. These Moogfest Edition Matriarch Synthesizers will be the first 250 instruments to ship from the employee-owned Moog Factory this summer.
