Oberheim Matrix-6 Patches (6R/1000)

Here are about 40 or so original Matrix-6 patches in SYSEX format as a single bank.  They should work on the Matrix-6R and Matrix-1000 also.  My main goal was to explore the wide range of sonic character which is akin to its big brother counterparts, the Matrix-12/Xpander.  A handful of these patches were transcribed from those made on a Matrix-12.  The video demo are some of my favorites, and were recorded direct with absolutely no other processing or effects.

Use Midi-ox program or some other midi utility program to load the bank.  Don't forget to save your own bank before doing this.

Oberheim Matrix-6 Sound Check

I am currently building a set of patches for the Oberheim Matrix-6/6R/1000. Here is a sound test of the first set of patches. A few sounds will be those translated from the Matrix-12 which has very much of the same character. It shouldn't be surprising since they seem to share the same software DNA and extreme mod routing that makes these sounds possible. I'm using an instrument editor I found on the internet in Cubase SX3. Here's the exact one I'm using and is working quite well. I still need to do the Mod Matrix routing from the synth but the editor makes the patching much easier.
