Matrix Ctrlr EDIT Menu

The EDIT menu is the companion of the live panel and is used to edit less relevant parameters of a tone and its name. Usually you set a fixed value into the EDIT mode while you tweak parameters value on the live panel.

Pressing EDIT shows the different sections available :

  • KEY1 : DCO & LFO settings
  • KEY2 : FILTER & VCA settings
  • KEY3 : ENV1, ENV2, ENV3 settings

Use PAGE to cycle the different pages of a section and EDIT to return. Press a KEY to enter a section.

DCO & LFO section :

Page 1 : DCO 1/2 affected by pitch Bend, Vibrato or portamento

  • KEY1 select DCO1 or DCO2,
  • KEY2KEY4 activate

Page 2 : LFO 1/2 affected by vibrato, bend, portamento

  • KEY1 select LFO1 or LFO2,
  • KEY2KEY4 activate

Page3 : LFO 1/2 modulation

  • KEY1 select LFO1 or LFO2,
  • KEY2 LFO AMPLITUDE modulation by RAMP1,
  • KEY4 LFO SPEED modulation by Channel Aftertouch (PRESSURE)

Page 4 : LFO parameters

  • KEY1 : set LFO1 or LFO2
  • KEY2 : LFO mode single, multiple, external or nothing
  • KEY3 : source
  • KEY4 : Lag
  • KEY5 : retrigger

use the encoder to edit the value

FILTER & VCA section :

Page 1 : filter modulated by pitch Bend, Vibrato, portamento or keyboard velocity

Page 2 : VCA parameters

  • KEY2 : AMOUNT (VCA Level)
  • KEY3 : VCA modulated by velocity
  • KEY4 : VCA modulated by ENV2

use the encoder to set the value

ENVELOPS section

Page 1 :  ENV3 main parameters

  • KEY2 : ENV3 Attack
  • KEY3 : ENV3 Decay
  • KEY4 : : ENV3 Sustain
  • KEY5 : ENV3 Release

use the encoder to set the values

Page 2 : other ENV parameters

  • KEY1 : select ENV1, 2 or 3
  • KEY2 : selected ENV Dealy
  • KEY3 : selected ENV Amplitude
  • KEY4 : selected ENV Release mode (nothing, free run, DADR, both)

use encoder to set value

Page 3 : other ENV parameters

  • KEY1 : select ENV
  • KEY3 : ENV triggermode
  • KEY5 : LFO

use encoder to set value


Page 1 : portamento

  • KEY1 : portamento mode
  • KEY4 : Velocity
  • KEY5 : portamento rate

Page 2 : keyboard behavior

  • KEY1 : keyboard note mode assignation
  • KEY4 : unison

press KEY to set value


Page 1 : the Matrix !!

simply select the parameter using KEYS and edit the value within the encoder

  • KEY1 : slot (there are 10 available)
  • KEY2 : the SOURCE
  • KEY5 : the AMOUNT

Page 2 :  RAMPS parameters

  • KEY1 : select RAMP to edit
  • KEY2 : set RAMP speed
  • KEY3 : ramp trigger mode
  • KEY5 : ramp input trigger

use encoder to set value

Page 3 : 5 segments tracking ramps parameters

use the KEYS to select the segment, then edit with the encoder

EDITING NAME of a tone

A tone can have a 8 characters name. Use the encoder to set the characters. You can press the encoder to edit the following character or the arrows on the display.

NOTA : Notice the name isn’t saved into memory : you have to return to PATCH main page and press SAV.


useless since the Matrix Ctrlr can contain 1000 tones in its memory


Press key under to set a randomized value (experimental feature).

There are two pages of parameters to randomize.

arduino Mega pin tester application

A short application to test your arduino mega and detect if there are very thin short or cold solder joints between the pins/connectors. Useful if your buttons are not detected for example (we had a defective board with a short between pin 10 and 11, disabling SRIO function scanning the buttons).

Simply upload the sketch and then with a single wire you can monitor through Serial at 115200 bauds that the pin is good : pin 13 is the output pin alternating a state 1/0 while Serial indicates if the tested pin is working. All pins are tested so you can pass from one pin to another with the monitor window opened without rebooting, simply by moving the wire.

pin10 is tested on the picture below :


Increase the delay(5) to delay(150) to see the source output pin blinking. Sketch to download :
