Guest contributor Jim from Earmonkey Music was on hand to spend some quality time with a few instruments at the show, which helps give a sense of what these synths are like to play, how they sound without any of the facts and figures.
In these tow videos, Jim looks at the Moog Matriarch - a Grandmother styled four voice paraphonic, stereo instrument which Moog announced at MoogFest.
The Matriarch should be available this summer priced at around $1999
Of course, any chance to get your hands on the Moog flagship - the One is not to be passed and Jim had some time to flip through some of the presets for this enormo-synth.
