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 1.38 update

There is a long time we have published some news !

We (or should say “I” as alpesmachines is a single guy project) have been focused on daily life things and a regular job but some prototyping projects should be exposed in the next weeks …

We have also invest some time to enhance the Matrix Ctrlr and you can find the latest revisions 1.38 on Github here :

  • One major improvement is a faster display librarian : all the micro delays induced by printing on the display have disappeared. You can trigger very short notes and move all the parameters together now : beware to the musical results !
  • ARP Menu : now you can set the split point in between the arpegiated section and the sequenced one with a midi learn : simply press KEY2 under SPLT and send a midi note to define the split point. A customer request !
  • We have also improved the ADC stability by using a moving average method to filter power supply noise and thus having a more stable reading of the potentiometers. It can be access under the CFG/MISC/JTR parameter. A lower value uses lots of filtering (drawback the calculus is longer so the printed value is a little delayed) while a higher value is more responsive and sensitive to noise. The value can be set by pressing KEY4 and saved with PAGE. Now you can use a very bad quality power supply if you like.

We still have a few kits in stock and you need to order a Matrix Ctrlr ECO kit + assembly service to have a ready to use unit.

We recommend to have firmware 1.20 or 2.15 inside your Matrix 1000 or Matrix 6 : we provide Oberheim EPROM if necessary.

 

 

There are also Stereo One-O-Six Chorus kits in stock, a nice companion to add wide stereo effect to a mono synthesizer !

We wish you all the best and enjoy the unlockdown freedom !
