This is a panel for the Matrix-6. I cannot fully test it as I have no Matrix-6 (just a Matrix-1000).I am grateful that “Symphonicsamples” is helping me fixing bugs but just one betatester is a bit sparse, so use at your own risk.

Before you try it be aware that I made the panel for firmware v2.14 from Bob Grieb (http://www.tauntek.com/Matrix6Firmware.htm). If you got v2.14 set the “Sysex”-setting to value “2” when using this panel. When using firmwares prior to v2.14 this panel probably won’t work flawlessly.

2016/12/22: v0.74 Beta. Bugs fixed.

    Super impressive work, this panel brings a whole new life to the Matrix 6 !!! Superb.integration, easily the best editor/librarian for the M6 I’ve seen.

    I got it working, but mod matrix still doesn’t work…
    when I change patch, panel update everything on screen, od matrix too, but changing mod matrix values did not produce midi out from plugin to the synth

    Great work on this panel. This looks like exactly what I’ve been looking for to edit my M6.

    Questions for you. First, can you explain more about the need to press the “Enable QuickEdit” button at least once? In my testing with your panel, it seems that I’d press that, and the changes would take place immediately for awhile. Then they would stop working and I’d have to press it again.

    Second question: Can you provide an explanation of the buttons that are shown when you press the “red pill” and how they are used?

      Hi Bruce, you probably aren’t using firmware v2.14 from Bob Grieb. I believe that v2.14 stores the quickedit-setting. On lower fw versions quickedit will be reset in some cases. In order to be able to edit the M6 remotely quickedit has to be enabled. Some editors will always send the quickedit-enable message together with the parameterchange-messages. Mine does not because for v.2.14 this is not needed. The redpill is a randomizer, there is not a lot to say – just try it out it should be selfexplanatory: Select which sections you want randomized (Osc1, Osc2, LFOs etc.) select if Sliders and/or Selectors should be randomized. Push Major or Minor RND, to hear the randomized patch push SEND IT.

    Today I installed firmware v2.14 on my new Matrix 6R. It had v2.13.

    I have not used CTRLR before, but after seeing your Matrix 6 panel I wanted to try it out. There doesn’t seem to be much documentation on how to use CTRLR in your DAW, but eventually got it working. Strangely, I could not get the stand-alone CTRLR 64 bit version working, it would not run on my Windows 8 64 bit machine.

    So far, everything is working great with the panel! Have only played for about an hour, but now this Matrix 6R that I bought, that seemed so difficult to use is very usable. I was shocked the first time hearing a smooth filter sweep. I had used another editor previously that caused the M6 to choke on the sysex parameters.

    The panel layout is really well done… I love how instead of using drop-downs for some parameters (for example, LFO shape), it lists all options and highlights the active one, really informative and useful. Did I already mention how great the panel layout is? 🙂

    Huge thanks Possemo… over the next few days i will try to help test the panel, so far it is really wonderful!
