The Grandmother and Matriarch quickly became staples of the modern Moog era when they were released. Their designs are undeniably retro, but the color scheme didnâ€™t really fit in with any of the companyâ€™s legacy products. So today the two flagship semi-modular synths are getting old-school â€śdarkâ€ť redesigns that hearken back to the early days of Moogâ€™s original modular systems like the Model 10.The Moog Dark Series replaces the bright green, yellow of the original models with serious looking black panels. That might seem like a minor change (and it is, to be fair), but chances are the new aesthetic will have an easier time blending into your synth dungeon. Both synths are also getting a firmware update to celebrate the new looks. Thereâ€™s no gaming changing features being added, but thereâ€™s improved sync and an envelope multi-trig mode for the Grandmother and host of bug fixes.
