Matrix Ctrlr Livepanel

The live panel consists in the Knobs and selection switches.

When you turn a knob, the parameter description is written on screen with its original value in the patch in the top left corner. The bottom left corner indicates the current value encoded by the potentiometer. A gauge gives an estimate of your potentiometer position : you hear it, you feel it with your fingers, you read it and you visualize it, Human User Interface at its maximum !

It is a real time feature, whatever menu you are in. The Matrix Ctrlr has 32 knobs organized in 2 layers, which give you a direct access to 64 controls (like a digital mixer). To access the second layer you need to activate ALT.

Only relevant controls have been retained and printed on the overlay, but you can edit pots.ino in the code and add more parameters ! You can also edit the delay you return to menu after potentiometer’s inactivity in the code (default : 2000 millisec).

Notice :

G.Detune stands for Unison Detune introduced in Matrix 1000 GliGli firmware. It sends a control change midi message #94, from 0 to 63 (127 is definitely too much) affecting both DCO1 & DCO2. Matrix 6/6R doesn’t responds to this. That gives a very varnished vintage touch to any patch as if the oscillators were detuned by the years, very 70s. This feature has been kept in firmware 1.20 by Tauntek.

Detune stands for Detune of DCO2 (standard feature).

PWM/LFO2 means Pulse Width Modulation by (/) LFO2. The slash / can be understood as “modulated by”.

Matrix 6/6R 2.14 firmware : set up 04 SYSEX EN +2 in MASTER to enable the correct range of responses to SysEx messages. Detune doesn’t accept negative values (corrected in 2.15).

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 …
