    Hi guys.

    I have finished all the graphics I need to skin this control. Sorry it took me so long. Anyway Atom I am wondering when I do a replace with changing a uiSlider to a uiImageSlider does that save all the info already associated with the component? Just want to make sure I won’t break anything if I change this.

    Thanks, Atom, not sure what I did wrong if anything. Hey if you want to add this panel to the downloads section I would be cool with that. Glad you guys like the panel.

    Hi truthfully I am not sure how to do this. I believe it has something to do with the VST Index but I am not positive. You will have to so some searching on this forum under how to control Ctrl with external cc#. I am pretty sure you have to set up each control on the panel to match the hardware’s cc#s. Sorry I can’t be of more help.

    Also I am not sure if when you say (extract the ascii name) you are trying to pull out the patch names, but while doing some research on http://wolzow.mindworks.ee/analog/m1k-firmware.htm I noticed that it says —

    “SysEx dump does not include proper patch names (due to space issues). Even patches sent to M-1000 from M-6 are returned with ‘garbled’ patch names”

    So I guess the patch names won’t work. If you can get the other patch Sysex to translate so that we can at least get the patch number I am willing to try to implement a text list based naming display with save function for the first 200 patches. That way we should still enable the user to save and pull patch names down.

    Here is some more control images I have created.

    Hi atom,

    I actually have some free time to start to skin this panel. If you want me to wait until it is finished that is fine as well. But if not could you post your latest build as I wouldn’t want to start work on an old one.

    By the way no rush, I am sure you are really busy.

    How would you want the sample data? I could probably get you a full data dump, if that would be useful. I wonder if the Matrix will dump the 800 default patches though since those can’t be changed.

    There may also be a command to request programs and banks via midi, if you add that function I could send you the data that is passed via midi monitor if that would be helpful.

    So attached is a list of all the patch names of the Matrix. The file is pipe delimited, with three columns. Patch Number, Sound Category, Patch Name. Not sure how hard it would be to allow the user to filter by Category, but it may be useful since there are 1000 patches. I don’t think it would be that hard since the categories are broken out by 100 each except for the first 2 which are broken down by 200 each. The hardest part would be sorting the user defined ones, if you gave the user the ability to assign their Patch to a Sound Category. I think Lua has some sort of filter function though right? To keep it easy though we could just keep them in the User role.

    By the way I changed 889 which was titled “rapist” to “sicko” because really?? Scrolling through sounds just to have that pop up is quite a good way to spoil the mood, to say the least. Not sure how that one got through QA.

    Guys I got my rack up yesterday I will try to test this with the new firmware over the weekend to see if that fixes the issues with the hanging of the unit. Unfortunately there is no way to fix the incorrect parameters without the firmware upgrade.

    Here is a link that discusses the fix that someone programmed a while back, there is even discussion of a possible firmware mod to add features. Sadly it doesn’t look like it went anywhere from there though.

    http://www.gearslutz.com/board/electronic-music-instruments-electronic-music-production/824760-oberheim-matrix-1000-firmware-hacks.html

    Here is where I got my upgraded chip. It is very easy to install just slides in after you slide out the old one. The guy was easy to deal with and the chips only cost $6 each plus shipping.

    Hey clancy, I tried to load your panel however I am getting an error.

    “ImportResource resource:oberheimfailed, a resource with this name already exists.”

    Not sure if this is me or if this is just an issue with the panel. I will try to update Ctrlr.

    I finished the slider graphics yesterday, Atom I will get you that list over the weekend. Am I correct in assuming there is not many features left to program at this point?

    Here is a preview of some of the graphical work I have done (LCD/Knobbys in Oberheim motif).
    I am still not happy with the sliders, but they should be done soon. I will start skinning this shortly. I will also look for the sound list I was able to create from the Matrix documentation, so we can use that for the sound selection.

    Edit: I keep thinking of things to add.

    Hey, I have two Matrix so I will test this. Sorry I haven’t been very active in this thread as of late, I have been rearranging my rack so everything has been down for a weeks as I was basically servicing all my synth (just cleaning and having removable batteries installed). Anyhow I have been putting everything back in order and should be up and running by the middle of this week. At that point I can start doing the graphical version of this number.

    Atom this is a wonderful start. I should be able to complete the graphical part of this project fairly quickly with this! Thanks..

    Yeah, I don’t think there is a midi learn function I think you have to manually change the settings. I would do a search on the board.

    Well I have a lot of the graphics done as far as backgrounds/buttons and sliders. I will try working on it tonight.

    hey – that panel is amazing but i’m quit new to ctrl and don’t know how or if it’s possible to control the sliders via a midi controller too or just by mouse ?

    I believe this has to do with the VST index but I am not sure how to set it up. Haven’t messed with this yet. I am used to just assigning controls via midi setup where you select the control and then turn the knob or whatever.

    I think you will need to to some research on the forum, as this is a more general question pertaining to Ctrlr and not specific to the panel.

    Cool, found a page with the specs, and lots of them.

    http://www.youngmonkey.ca/nose/audio_tech/synth/Oberheim-Matrix1000.html

    here is another one that is updated not sure why.

    http://wolzow.mindworks.ee/analog/m1k-midi-spec.htm

    I have the 2 of them so testing would not be a problem. Also there are a few old Programs we could look at to see how they arrange things.

    Also both of mine have the corrected firmware which I was lucky enough to find someone to burn to eprom chips. If anyone is interested I could point them in the right direction if they want to look into it. This fixes the incorrect Sustain and Amplitude parameters and Evn2 – VCA2. More on the these issues can be found here.

    Thanks, High praise indeed, let me know if you find any errors. Funny my MSK-50 is getting a tune up so I haven’t had a chance to use it much of late. I am almost done with the K3 editor, which has even more bells and whistles for those who have one.

    Hey LastNinja anyway you could post that. I would like to look at it and see what I did wrong. There are a lot of setting in the panel that I don’t exactly know what they all do. Truth is I think I understand the actual programing stuff better then I do the settings and such.

    I still get confused with midi in general as far as midi-feedback and such. Also the don’t make midi interfaces the way they used to. I have a Midi express 128 but it annoys the hell out of me I can’t turn it off! Anyway I digress I am glad you can use it.

    Once everyone says they have been using it without problems I will try to figure out how to upload it to the database if you can still do that.

    hi,
    very nice programmer.
    is it possible that the roland mks50 send the configuration of patch or tone to the programmer ? thanxx

    Yeah that is what this does.

    First of all make sure you are connected by making sure you can use the panel to make changes to the sounds. Also make sure you have the correct channels set for receiving Midi.

    To get the MKS-50 to send the parameters for tone and patch you need to turn on transmitting for both on (manual pg. 51) as well as turning on Midi Program Change (pg. 11). Annoyingly you will need to do this every time you turn on the synth. After those parameters are set to on I suggest double clicking the tone button {{{ON THE MKS-50}}} to send the parameters. I say Tone button because the Patch button doesn’t send the tone parameters, however the tone sends both tone/patch.

    Also “Make sure that the Midi Lock button is lit. If not push the “Midi Lock” button and try again.

    OK I made some changes. Please give it a shot. If it still doesn’t work please let me know what Operating System you are using Windows/Mac. This may help me track down the issue. Hopefully it will work though.

    Check your setting at Panel/Panel Settings on the menu at the top.

    I will check if I mistakenly hard coded the channels when I first started programming directly on the panel itself. I’ll let you know.

    *** PLEASE USE THE THIRD ZIP FILE FURTHER DOWN IN THIS THREAD ****

    OK so that was it. I didn’t realize that there was an export feature in the newer versions of Ctrlr. Needed to add the resources with it.

    Anyway here it is again attached so you can discard the first one. It’s good that you are on PC as I have been wondering how well it will translate. I have a tri-booting PC (Mac/Win7/Ubuntu) which I built for all my endeavors, however I don’t use Win7 for Music, mostly web programming and gaming. The Mac OS is for Music and now Ctrlr programming. Anyway your testing will be a great help if you don’t mind letting me know how it goes pro or con I would appreciate it.
