A new Matrix Ctrlr firmware is available on GitHub as a free update :
- better workflow to save the patches (turning the encoder show temporarily the name and the position). Thanks to Thomas P. Heckmann for the help !
- minor enhancements on boot to reach quickly Test Mode.
- Chord Memory based on Roland alpha Juno feature
On page5 of ARP menu, 3 different chords (e.g : Major, minor and 7dim) can be memorised at the same time and you select the one you need :
They are empty by default. To create a chord in cm1 slot, press KEY3 to select. Press KEY1 to record the chord. Play a chord on your keyboard (6 notes max), release. The chord is in memory cm1 (wiped on power off). You can immediately find back this chord by pressing C4 (midi note 60) on your keyboard and transpose it all along the other keys ; this is very inspired by alpha Juno.
