well, i'll guess that you haven't tried the grandmother yourself. it's really an amazing instrument. I suppose that there agenda is to make really good instruments. Obviously flawed.

but wouldn't the grand mother be the Matriarch as well? I am a bit confused with this.

I'm a bit confused as to your point, unless it's a joke. All I'm saying is that these are quite similar synths, with the matriarch seemingly being an upgrade to the grandmother. I have no experience with the Matriarch (obviously) but I own a Grandmother, and i find it to be one of best sounding and fun synths I've ever used.

Somewhere between a joke and bemusement for their naming.

I do believe Dave Smith ought to come back at them with a Patriarch and a Grandfather. Too much feminism.

And they should demo them using gender-less sequencers with no human operator visible. hihi

All synths should be named after planets. It should be a rule.

well, this is quite limited due to the quantity of planets with a decent name vs synths

btw, roland almost checked this with jupiter, saturn 09 and (pro)mars but then you got the juno lines and then you realize that they´re all named after roman gods

anyway, you can find some "earth" stuff too but basically they´re all world music oriented synths and I remember some very obscure synth called "uranus"

I'm not familiar with Moog's supply & demand of recent synth releases.

What do you all think the chances are of the Matriarch selling out and becoming hard to find for a while?

I want to purchase this synth but I'm not sure i'll be able to preorder. I'm thinking I'd be able to buy one sometime in September but I'm nervous I might not be able to find one.

Thanks.

Matrairch has both firmware and microprocessors, don't let the cactuses and neon colors fool you..


I'm sure it does. However I am dead sick of synths that are all firmware and only a couple knobs. Especially when they are analog synths.
I have owned a couple of the Moogs like the Taurus III and Lil Phattie. And those drive me bonkers with every single knob having two functions. And often those two functions you most want to use at once are on different layers.
Moog is not the only company that does this. And to their credit, I like the tactile experience of those buttons and how they have bicolor LEDs to indicate the state. But using OB6, MG1 and SH09 where a knob or slider is what it says it is, that's much more rewarding. And easier to deal with after the 3rd or 4th joint.

I think you can place an order with Noise Bug without paying until it arrives, and it's looking like at least October till they ship

October? Ouch. Hopefully it doesn't get pushed back even further.

Do you know the difference between the moogfest and regular version? To me it seems like the moogfest version is numbered and the regular version isn't. Yet musiciansfriend is showing you can select the black version. I've never seen a black version.

Thanks.

Thanks to that cringefest commercial I lost all religious/fetichist tendencies and interest I ever had towards that brand - to be fair it should have happened with the Sirin commercial already.

Thanks for letting us know.

(Goes back to twiddling knobs on The Grandmother, the best analogue synth I have ever owned, in 27 years of owning analogue synths...)
Panason
But he/she didn't say the GM is bad! having said that, the GM does seem to have a shoddy build quality (shite PSU jack/socket, buttons feel like a Tandy) and has the usual Moog excessive price tag. It seems to be made as cheaply as possible- doesn't even qualify as furniture! twisted I tried it in a shop and failed to see what makes it worth a grand. It's a(nother) basic analog monosynth with a few token patch points.

It's tragic that anyone would buy a Matriarch over the Summit or the Super-6 but of course these synths do not have the genuine analog tone or the Moog (pronounced Mogue of course) brand name.
love

I couldn't disagree with you more strongly after owing The Grandmother for a few months, but it'd just be pissing in the wind... Miley Cyrus

I'm probably gonna pick up a Matriarch to pair with it too, but will wait until at least six months after it's released, as I always prefer to get a later batch if I can.

The GC rep seems to think that the Matriarchs slated to ship in July will still ship next week and that the October date is for anyone who ordered after a certain point up to now. Let’s hope they’re right.

That was the impression I got from my last conversation with them as well.

I received an email reply from Moog on 4/2 saying "As for Matriarch the release date is on schedule for late summer.."
booger
Anyone get any updates to the Matriarch delivery date? I was still under the impression that they were backordered until October.
radialMelt
I have one on pre-order from my local shop (who do quite a lot of business with Moog from what I understand). Last I asked (this past Friday) they had "no date" for when they expect to receive the Matriarch units. I am in Canada FYI.

A Moog rep told me last week in an email that they are still planning to ship the first run “late summer.”

I got on the Sweetwater list at 9am the day it was announced. My rep says end of September. Originally July.
