The extension is an optional PCB that copies Midi and Power Supply connectors of the Matrix Ctrlr mainboard on a DIL-20 header connector.

 

 

matrix_ctrlr_extension_dThe idea is to use the Matrix Ctrlr extension in your rack to connect all the midi and power supply cables to your synths and use a 20 wires ribbon flat cable or a DB25 cable to connect to the Matrix Ctrlr device via the extension port on the main board. This way, the Matrix Ctrlr lays on your desktop without a lot of cables, but just one !

Matrix Ctrlr firmware v1.42

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.

 

 

Many people are asking for Matrix Ctrlr kits. We are working on it, but you may know that the prices of the components have been multiplied by 2 or 3 lately, especially semiconductors – and there is a chips shortage on top of that ! Taxes and freight are also higher, so we do our best to keep costs down (we have to be very creative). You may expect a little rise in our prices …
