Four instruments from Moog's semi-modular family of analog synthesizers (Matriarch, Grandmother, Mother-32, and DFAM) connect together in a new exploratory composition.
In this patch, Grandmother serves as a master clock, distributing sync signals to the Matriarch, Mother-32, and DFAM. The patch begins with the Grandmother playing a simple bassline, processed through a DIY J.H. Haible phaser, and one of the Matriarch’s analog delays. The DFAM provides a kick drum pattern to anchor the elements of the song together, while the Mother-32 plays a deep ostinato bass melody. The Matriarch generates the upper register arpeggio in round robin mode, allowing the mixer section to be used creatively to introduce and remove notes in the arpeggiated melody. Finally, the Matriarch is also being utilized to sum the Grandmother’s audio in the VCA section, while the Matriarch’s analog delays are being used separately to provide unique delay effects to the Grandmother and Matriarch separately.
