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).
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).
