You are about to build the Matrix Ctrlr. This is a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Kit with through holes components and industrial quality stuff.

Building is a two tasks job : soldering and mechanical assembly. You should easily success in if you carefully follow instructions.

It consists in a sandwich made of the front panel and the PCB. Both are linked together with 11mm spacers and mechanical part sitting on the PCB that need to go through the front panel. This is where comes the subtlety of the assembly in the final steps.

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 …
