Matrix Ctrl PATCH Menu

The PATCH Menu is the default display and allows you to manage all your patches.

Navigate the 3 different pages using PAGE :

  • Main page
  • Bank page
  • Single patch page
  • Copy/Paste page

 

Main Page (page 1)

Direct patch management :

  • Load a patch using +/- keys or turn and press the encoder (since firmware 0.99W).
  • Pressing SHIFT and turn the encoder increment hundreds only (Banks), does not load the patch.
  • Pressing SHIFT and +/- increment dozen only, loads the patch.
  • A, B, C or D specify if it is unit A, B, C or D which is edited (redundancy with the Device section).

Functions :

  • GET : ask your Matrix synth the current EditBuffer (need a midi connection).
  • INIT : send the default init patch to the Matrix synth.
  • ORG : send the original patch presented by the Ctrlr.
  • EDT : send the edited patch presented by the Ctrlr.
  • SAV : save the edited patch in the Ctrlr memory. Use the encoder in conjunction with SHIFT to select the location (000 to 999). Then press KEY5 to save.

 

Bank Page (page 2)

Used to get the banks contained in the Matrix synth :

  • KEY1/KEY2 increment/decrement the source mBank (matrix bank) in the Matrix synth.
  • KEY4/KEY5 increment/decrement the destination uBank (user bank) in the Ctrlr.
  • KEY3 send the order (midi message).

Saving of multiple received patches is done automatically.

Single Patch Page (page 3)


Used to get a single patch contained in the Matrix synth in order to save it in the Ctrlr :

  • KEY1/KEY2 increment/decrement the source mPatch (matrix patch 000 to 999).
  • KEY4/KEY5 select the destination uPatch (user patch) in the Ctrlr. There are 1000 slots.
  • KEY3 send the order (midi message) and save the patch.

Copy/Paste


  • Press KEY1 and KEY3 or KEY4 or KEY5 to copy corresponding item between 2 patches.
  • Press KEY2 and KEY3 or KEY4 or KEY5 to paste corresponding item between 2 patches.

You can copy/paste the EditBuffer (tone), the Arp Parameters or the associated Sequence.

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 …
