Moog Matriarch Announced

Post by mknogge » Wed Jul 24, 2019 11:47 pm

I have preordered one. It seems pretty amazing and should mate well with my modular.

I've been on the fence about how to rebuild my studio after selling most of gear off last year in preparation for a big move. It was mostly stuff I had picked up cheap on ebay or elsewhere 15-20 years ago, a lot of digital interface hell and oddballs. I sold a Radioshack/Moog MG-1, an Oberheim Matrix 1000, an Akai AX73, Kawai K1rII, K3, K4r, K5m, Yamaha TX81Z. With the exception of the MG-1, they weren't much fun to create patches on. For a long while, I was working mostly with VSTi's in Cubase.

Anyway, I moved eight months ago. The Matriarch seems to be the synth that makes me want to hop off the fence. I think it will offer me a more joyful direct connection to experiment with the instrument, while also being immediately flexible enough with its paraphony to be a nice composition tool too. And it's an obvious starting point for Eurorack. I've preordered the Moog last week, though who even knows when it'll appear. In the meantime, I work on assembling a modest eurorack and studio infrastructure...

I've thought about getting one of these, still have a preorder, but I have a Moog One and rarely use it, it sounds nice, but I prefer smaller mono synths that punch above their weight. I'll probably still end up getting one though.

Played one of these a couple of days ago. Definitely felt like one of those synths you could get lost in for absurd amounts of time, and that's even before I started patching a few things.

Super glad I pre-ordered one and can't wait for it to show up.

I think it was both courageous and clever to sell off that gear. It is a glorious time to be a synth nerd, so many wonderful instruments available. I have the Grandmother and get deeply absorbed into it, unlike anything I've tried from the mid '80s to '10s. Very good odds you'll feel similarly with the Matriarch.

Good luck with the studio build, I hope this response motivates you through the 'boring'* setup phase to reach the creative experimental phase once it's done and instruments get hooked up.

*- I really enjoy studio building and setup

Short sighted opinions on price and colour choices killed my initial interest in this, but that Bella Donna Syntopia performance was killer. This synth sounds awesome - I was looking around the DSI stable but I might start saving for this instead.

Lucky buggers. No word from my shop yet. Wondering if they'll get any of these MoogFest versions at all.

Early pics showed OSC1 as 32’-4’...manual and demos show 16’-2’. Wonder why that changed?

i also have the Grandmother, and my Matriarch arrives tomorrow, at which point I'll need to decide whether to sell the Grandmother. How different do you find the Matriarch in practice? I love the idea of having both, but there is a space issue.....
