As part of the 2021 NAMM Show, Moog Music was awarded the TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement for the Matriarch Synthesizer.
“We are humbled to accept this award for Matriarch — an instrument designed and built by our employee-owners here in Asheville, NC and shipped to musicians all over the world,” says Mike Adams, President of Moog Music.
Matriarch is a patchable 4-note paraphonic analog synthesizer, based on classic Moog module designs, with a built-in sequencer, arpeggiator, stereo ladder filters, and stereo analog delay. The synth’s internal connections can be customized using 90 modular patch points.
Here are examples of the Matriarch in action by Paris Strother, Sarah Schachner, Lisa Bella Donna, and Max Ravitz:
