Matrix-6

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.

 

 

This panel has to be requested. Write an email to roet32@gmail.com. Give a short explanation why you want this panel.

Matrix1000

Editor / Librarian for the Oberheim Matrix-1000

It should work on any Matrix-1000 but I strongly recommend you to upgrade to firmware v1.20 from Bob Grieb or v1.16 from GliGli. I am using v1.20 which is an awesome upgrade for the Matrix1000.

You don’t have to ask for this panel anymore – I just ask you to read read this text carefully before you go to the download site.

The Matrix-1000 panel has not been reported to be problematic, but nevertheless keep in mind that this panel is still in beta state. Beta means that the software is not fully tested and there may be bugs which have not been discovered yet. Therefore, everybody who is using this panel is a beta-tester not an end-user. Don’t get me wrong. Bug-reports and suggestions of any kind are very welcome, but I won’t accept blaming me of having problems with your synth (e.g. losing data) as a result of using this panel. This is a risk you are taking on your own when you are using it.

I recommend saving your patches before using this panel. This can be done with a sysex tool. There are reliable freeware tools to do this. If you need help saving your patches let me know.

This Matrix-1000 panel has been developed for firmware v1.20 from Bob Grieb.
http://www.tauntek.com/Matrix1000Firmware.htm

People reported that it works ok with v1.16 from GliGli too. Other firmware versions haven’t been tested. v1.11 was the last official firmware from Oberheim. It contains some bugs but apart from that it should work as well. Be aware that with firmware v1.03 you may run into problems. Either do the needed hardware modification and upgrade to a higher firmware or maybe forget about using editors/librarians (look at Bob Grieb’s page, scroll down to the bottom).

The Matrix-1000 is almost identical to the Matrix-6. You can load Matrix-6 patches and banks into the Matrix-1000 and vice versa. BUT the Matrix-1000 cannot save patch names. Therefore, when you load a patch or a bank from the Matrix-1000 into the panel it won’t show a name. When you save banks or single patches to disk the names will be preserved.

Some time ago I made a tutorial for my old SuperJX-panel. All my panels are more or less designed the same way so it may be useful to you:
http://ctrlr.org/?ddownload=68352

Here is another tutorial about integrating the Ctrlr plugin into a DAW: http://roet32.wixsite.com/ctrlr/tutorials

One user had problems sending banks to the synth. This was due to the 10ms delay between patch sysex messages being too short for his setup. He successfully tested a version with a 100ms delay. On the actual version the delay is now customizable. Look at the Master/Prefs tab.

You can download it here: http://roet32.wixsite.com/ctrlr/oberheim-matrix-1000

If you have some Ctrlr / Matrix related questions, suggestions or concerns: roet32(at)gmail.com.
One last hint: Morpheus’ hands with the red and the blue pill are buttons, kinda easter eggs…

If you think your Matrix1000 is reacting erratic try the following:

1. Sytem Reset: hold the “Enter” button while switching on. It will show the firmware version. Wait until device starts up. Patch 00 of Bank 0 will be initialized to an init patch.

2. Calibration Procedure: Select “Ext Funct”, push button 7, push Enter, push Enter again. Display will show “CAL”. Wait until device reverts to Patch mode.

3. If you are using firmware v1.16 or v1.20 maybe GliGli-Detune is set by accident. Set it by using CC 94, or use my Ctrlr panel. GliGli-Detune is not saved with the patch parameters.

4. If you are using an old Oberheim firmware (e.g. v1.11) you will face a load of bugs. Upgrade to a bugfixed/enhanced firmware. If you live in europe you can get a ROM chip programmed with v1.20 from Untergeek. Within the USA you can get it directly from Bob Grieb: Tauntek Website.

5. Master Parameters may not be set correctly. Use my panel to set it to your preferences.

6. If this did not help you may have a hardware prob. Common issue: memory backup battery’s life has ended. Replace it with a new one. For this you will have to desolder the old battery.

7. If this still does not help you may have a faulty CEM3396. The “small body” CEM3396’s used in the Matrix1000 are getting rare. The “wide body’s” used in the Matrix6 are still available for about 6$. There are ways fitting a “wide body” into a Matrix1000 (i mean without using a sledgehammer).

 

The Patch parameters are not explained in the Matrix1000 manual but they are identical to the Matrix6. The Master parameters are different though, and the Matrix1000 has no Split-mode. I OCR’ed the Matrix1000 and Matrix6r pdf-manuals to enable full text search:

Ensoniq ESQ1 One-Way Editor

Ensoniq ESQ1 One-Way Editor
Beta Version 1.1
[c] JaseFOS 2015

 

This release is intended as a ‘One-Way’ editor for the Ensoniq ESQ1.

Although this Panel can’t grab patches from the synth memories, what it does let you do is very useful – you may create custom sounds for the synth and enjoy full recall from DAW project files to store the patch, rather, than maintaining separate memories on the synth (which only has 40 locations available for storing your own sounds) which are awkward to manage and back up. All parameters may be automated from your DAW.

This is an early work in progress so please read the limitations below and keep those in mind during use.

Enjoy!

 

p.s. explore the Snapshots for a new sound library I’m developing with successive updates!

 

CONFIGURING YOUR ESQ1

On the front panel of the ESQ1:
1) Press [MIDI] to access the MIDI settings;
2) Set the PRESS parameter to CHAN (not essential but recommended when playing the built in Snapshots);
3) Set MODE = POLY;
4) Important setting – ENABLE = KEYS+CT+PC+SS+SX (this enables external NRPN control);
5) Nominate an unused MIDI Channel on your MIDI port and set the CHAN setting to match.

* IMPORTANT TIP *

The setting at step 4 is not preserved after ESQ1 is switched off so you’ll need to make this setting each time you turn it on your ESQ1.

 

READ THIS STUFF – IMPORTANT NOTES ; )

a) Don’t turn the knobs too fast – ESQ1 will crash and reboot!

USE YOUR MOUSE WHEEL to tweak the parameters since most mice wheels are stepped so it’s easy to control the ‘flow rate’ of change to the control so to speak. I need to come up with a scheme to remove redundant NRPN MIDI CC messages which select the parameter to be tweaked on the synth. I have some thoughts about how to do this with Lua script which will be implemented soon.

If you accidentally crash the ESQ1, patch settings are preserved in the CTRLR Panel (although you will need to re-do the setting made described in Step 4 earlier). Just send a Snapshot of the CTRLR Panel settings back to the synth and you’re back where you left off. This behaviour is top of my list to solve!

b) Commence sessions by sending Snapshots

Before you commence, send a Snapshot to the ESQ1 using CTRLR’s menu bar so that all settings in the synth match the Panel. Don’t forget to make Snapshots of your own as well of course!

c) Snapshots take a while to send.

It takes about 29 seconds actually. I had to decrease the rate at which Snapshots are sent to avoid overloading the poor little CPU in the ESQ1. Once I’m Lua script skilled, I’ll implement a quick SysEx dump function instead.

d) Many features to come including:

* Patch name LCD that writes to the synth display;
* SysEx patch dumping to the synth;
* SysEx patch dumping from the synth;
* Patch Randomiser;
* Graphic representation of Envelope slopes superimposed on each other (great for staging Envelope times);
* Graphic LFO representation similar to the Envelopes.

ensoniq SQ80 editor

Voice bank       editor

Hi

 

• CTRL Panel for ensoniq SQ80, (maybe compatible with ESQ1 and ESQm, but not tested).

• Voice editing, all parameters except Split/Layer.

• Bank page with dedicated buttons for internal voices only (no cartridge support).

configure midi IN/OUT in ctrl menu to receive voice name and settings.

• Save and rename edited voices must be done from the synth itself.

 

2 steps MUST be done in the ensoniq to receive midi parameter changes

every time you turn power on.

 

• Enable Sysex Exclusive  (MIDI page, ENABLE = KEYS + CT + PC + SS + SX).

This setting is not held in memory when power off.

• Press one of the voice editing buttons (OSC, DCA, ENV, FILTER…..)

 

Built with Ctrl version 5.3.85

enjoy!

 

Regards

Anders
