Re: 3 modules to expand my Matriarch

Speaking of Matriarch being deep... I just discovered by accident that it can do a thing I can only describe as multi-timbral polyphonic arpeggios. :guinness: And I've had it for months now. No Euro modules used and completely undocumented (or I missed it). That thing is a monster. Oh yah how u pat...

Re: Dave Smith hints at Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4/Prophet 10

Becoming bitimbral is, as I see it, technically impossible. But the recent updates are incredible. Dual voice poly mode is the blaster. Becoming confused here...

Re: 3 modules to expand my Matriarch

Hey, After several months with the Matriarch, and coming from a small modular (Intellijel Performance Case), let me report a few insights. Firstly, for me the Matriarch is a dangerous instrument. Quite contrary to some previous posters, it has shattered my conviction that modular is the pinnacle of ...

Slightly afraid to say that here, and it's more than one module, but: Moog Matriarch. I've been missing chords so much. And, to my surprise, having and playing a really good keyboard changes a lot for me. That's totally unexpected as I don't have any history at all on the piano. I'm so much more ins...

I also finally pulled the trigger on the Matriarch, and I'm so in love – chords, finally chords! Funny to see both Nick and Cukoo suddenly reviewing it.

Re: "paradigm shift" modules from your experience

Only downside is that it sparked desire long for a proper polysynth. Heh. A lot of the chatter on the Sinfonion thread is how to get the Befaco VCMC or MIDI THING properly converting pitches from the quantizer to MIDI for that exact purpose. This segue’s into the general observation that various mo...

Re: "paradigm shift" modules from your experience

Harmonaig. I'm a sucker for melody and Harmonaig, accompanied by appropriate modules, can so much more than just generate nice backing chords. It's a ton of fun even on a small system like mine, especially for generative but still musical stuff. Arpeggios, (semi-) generative melodies, generative acc...

Re: Moog Matriarch and Eurorack

You could perhaps mult the Matriarch’s CV out into a reverse attenuator and mix that with the new CV into the oscillator to cancel out the keyboard? I do it with my system with Cold Mac (to disconnect Mother 32’s osc from kb control), but Maths and others should also work. Wow, that is a seriously ...

Re: WMD Arpitecht

Recently joined the Arpitecht crowd – what a module! It seems kind of badly marketed as an arpeggiator. A 100 € Keystep is better at simple arpeggios. For me the Arpitecht feels more like an algorithmic composition tool that comes to live when you modulate through scales and chords. I've had a ton o...

Have you actually tried this with the 1983? The 1983 reads so cool on paper, but people seem to have problems. I have a 1983 on the way, so I plan to check this out. In the meantime also check the SDS Digital Sequarallel, cause I think it's closer to what you're looking for. The Melisma is intended...
