Author: TenSquare  
Description: Hello and thank you for your interest in the Matrix-1000 Editor, a Max for Live device specially designed to program your Oberheim Matrix-1000 synthesizer.

The Matrix-1000 Editor is a very powerful, ergonomic and intuitive MIDI editor. Real software remote control tailor-made for the legendary Matrix-1000, it is used directly in the music production software Ableton Live (ableton.com).

Thanks to this Max for Live MIDI editor, you will rediscover all the sound creation potential of your Matrix-1000, and it is really huge! Indeed, although this rack synthesizer is not directly editable on the front, it contains practically the same engine of synthesis as the equally legendary Oberheim Matrix-6 and Matrix-6R !

With the Matrix-1000 Editor, you can finally access all of your Matrix-1000's settings with just a few mouse clicks. You'll be able to do so much more with advanced new features designed to make sound design easier.

Have fun ! :)

What can I say apart from wow! Beautifully laid out and implemented! I've used quite a few Matrix-1000 editors and this one is so well presented and intuitive to use, looks like I finally have a go-to editor at last. Thanks.

Thank you for your message and your very positive feedback, it's a pleasure ! :) Have you tried it yet ? Is everything working well ? Are you on Mac or PC ?

hi. it looks marvelous to be honest and i am eager to make it work on my windows, but unfortunately i have been having issues.
seems like it finds an error loading the names of the parameters, which appear to be named all (live.comment) and no midi signal is coming out of the channel at all. not if i alter the parameters nor if i try to send a midi signal.

on the Max Console i receive these errors:

live.comment: live.comment: no such object
live.comment: live.comment: no such object
live.comment: live.comment: no such object
js: m1k.core.js: Javascript ReferenceError: ParameterInfoProvider is not defined, line 90
js: error calling function init [m1k.core.js]

the live.comment is repeated per parameter name that was missing

am i doing something wrong?

thanks in advance for your work and for sharing!

Hi Lorenzo,
What are the versions of your Ableton Live and Max softwares ? As explained in my user manual, you need will Live 10.1.30 and Max 8.1.8 to make the device work correctly.
Someone on Facebook has encountered exactly the same issue because he was using a previous Live version, I think it works for him now.
Cheers,
Guillaume

Just got a Matrix 1000. AMAZING device you did Guillaume. Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi Elliot,
I'm really happy that you like my MIDI editor for the Matrix 1000. :)
I hope you'll use it to create lots of new sounds and fully explore the potential of your synth, it's one hell of a machine!
Were you able to successfully operate the device in Ableton Live? Was my documentation useful to you ? What versions of Live and Max are you using?
Have fun ! ;)
All the best from France.
Guillaume

Hi Guillaume,

I am sorry for the late reply, I just saw your message :)

Yes it's a hell of a synth, so many parameters I am actually overwhelmed, will need some time to tame it :)

I am using Live 11 and Max 8 (last versions released for both) on Mac OSX Monterey (Apple Silicon but running Live with Rosetta). Everything is working properly (at least I couldn't find any issue).

My Matrix 1000 has the original firmware 1.11 so the feedback is relatively slow, this makes it half fun to sweep parameters.
I am waiting for the TaunTek firmware which should fix those sysex lags.

I didn't use the documentation since I am used to midi and audio routing but I quickly red it now and it seemed very clear, really kind of you to share all this hard work, and for free!

All the best from Germany! (I am French too hehe)
Elliot

Hi Elliot,
The world is small ! :)
I'm really happy to know that my device works well under macOS Monterey and the latest versions of Max and Ableton Live. A good point !
I myself had started the development of the Matrix-1000 Editor via the original Oberheim EPROM v1.11. It's true that the processing of SysEx messages is a little slow... I then equipped the synth with the TaunTek EPROM, it was night and day! You should feel quite a difference when you receive yours, it's much smoother, especially on the filter movements! Thank you for your positive comment on my documentation, I took pains ;)
Have fun !
Musically,
Guillaume

i am still downloading it but i loved you from the first moment i saw the user manual for the editor

thank you!

i'll let you know my feedback, i am on win 10 ableton 10

Hi Lorenzo,
Thank you for your comment. I have made a special effort to write my user documentation, I hope it will help you to make my device work with your Matrix-1000 under Live 10 & Windows 10. Let me know when you're done :)
Have fun !
Guillaume

Hello Guillaume,
Merci pour cet ?diteur du matrix 1000 !
Malheureusement impossible d'avoir l'affichage correct, j'ai pourtant utilis? les polices du dossier d'installation et sont bien install?es dans le livre de police (mac osX)
As tu d?j? eu des retours de probl?mes similaire ?

Merci,
Victor

Hello Guillaume, J'ai r?ussi ? le faire fonctionner. Je n'avais juste pas la bonne version de max, il a juste fallu la mettre ? jour !
Merci, h?te de pouvoir essayer ton app !

Hello Victor,
Je suis ravi que tu aies finalement r?ussi ? faire fonctionner mon device dans ton setup. Juste pour savoir, tu utilisais quelle version de Max pr?c?demment ?
Amuse-toi bien, et n'h?sites pas ? donner ton retour d'exp?rience utilisateur ici ! ;)
Guillaume

Hello Victor,
I'm glad you finally got my device working in your setup. Just to know, which version of Max did you use previously ?
Have fun, and don't hesitate to give your user experience feedback here! ;)
Guillaume

Hello dear users!
Would you be motivated to make a short video to show us how you program your Oberheim Matrix-1000 with my Max for Live editor, post it on YouTube and give us the link here?
Thank you all so much for your positive feedback and encouragement!
Good kisses from France.
Guillaume

Hello Guillaume, j'?tais en d?placement pendant 3 semaines. Je viens de voir ton msg, je vais essayer de trouver l'ancienne installation de max pour r?pondre ? ta question car je n'ai malheureusement aucune id?e.

En 1?res impressions, jai ?t? bluff? par la r?activit? des filtres, dco, ADSR.
Pour les modulations cela m'a sembl? un peu moins bien.

J'ai voulu m'y remettre aujourdhui, mais malheureusement pour une raison que je n'explique pas cela ne fonctionne plus.
Le device de max envoie bien de l'info midi (mon matrix 1000 r?agit, les valeurs changent sur l'?cran d'affichage) en revanche je n'ai aucune sortie audio du matrix. Celle ci revient bien quand j'enl?ve le matrix-1000 editor de ma piste. Je comprend pas pourquoi j'ai subitement ce probl?me.

Concernant la vid?o sur youtube je pense que c'est tjrs un plus !

cheers !

I'm not sure how active this project is, but, I have been trying to get it to work in Ableton 11. I have my project set up 100% exactly as depicted in the instruction manual, and I am able to audition my matrix via a usb midi keyboard, I can change the patch via the patch edit (select patch) but that's it. i can't alter the paramters (i have protect memory set to off), and I can't change ANY of the master parameters.

When I load the master editor, my midi interface should receive information, but it receives nothing. I know that the matrix can send info because when i set echo to ON and send midi notes, it sends the echo back.

It's neat to be able to set my patch in ableton, but that's all I can do, change from patch 000 to patch 493 or whatever, but nothing else.

Has anyone had this problem before?


Hi Slorrin,
Looks like SysEx messages are not getting through and only program changes are taken into account.
What version of Live and Max are you using?
What MIDI interface do you use?
Guillaume
