Moog Matriarch

Aaaah the Matriarch…Wish i Had the space for it …

I’m a bit jealous you got to be there. I thought I read somewhere that while she had the Pyramids onstage, it was not active? I didn’t hear any flanging, not that it matters much.

I got her all-Matriarch album - it’s great


I’ll definitely have to check that album out! And yeah at the end she mentions the pyramids, that’s all i’m going by really. maybe it was just a very subtle effect, but i agree that it doesn’t matter much. she could’ve gone dry and it still would have been amazing.

Its a shame it hasn’t the same tone as the Moog Mother 32. Every Moog has its own flavour though. This is a good lead synth with a rawer sound.

What an inspiring album.

Gee - all of his vids are GAS producers! I’ve been interested (in a pipe dream, doubt it’ll happen way) in the Matriach since it was announced. When I saw that loopop did a video, I was both excited and distressed at the same time!
