Matriarch is Moog’s flagship semi-modular synth – with stereo filters, stereo delays and stereo VCAs, four oscillators and a few paraphonic modes, and 90 patch points, there’s a lot of territory to explore and cover.

Here’s my full review, detailed tutorial and quite a few patch tips (see full list below as well as in the video’s description):
