A Patch Editor for the Oberheim Matrix-1000 Synthesizer
The M1000 Manager is an easy-to-use, intuitive, modern looking software patch editor for the Oberheim Matrix-1000 synthesizer.
With the M1000 Manager you can edit in real-time all parameters (including the Modulation Matrix) of the patch currently in the Matrix-1000 edit buffer, save patches as standard sysex files to your PC, load patches from files, dump or read complete patches to/from your Matrix-1000 edit buffer via MIDI, and store patches permanently to any of the 200 user patch memory locations inside the Matrix-1000.
It is optimized for large monitors (Full HD 1920x1080 recommended) on which it provides a complete overview and immediate access to all patch parameters at once. The M1000 Manager will also work on smaller lower resolution monitors. Minimum recommended screen width is 1280 pixel.
In addition to that the M1000 Manager provides real-time control of the 'Unison Detune' parameter that was added with the 1.16 aftermarket firmware by GliGli, which nicely expands the Oberheim Matrix-1000 sonic capabilities.
The M1000 Manager has been optimized to reduce MIDI data traffic to the Oberheim Matrix-1000 in order to avoid overloading the notoriously slow processing unit inside the Matrix-1000. Especially when used with the 1.16 aftermarket firmware by GliGli this completely avoids parameter change delays and freezes of the Matrix-1000 while editing.
