Oberheim Matrix 6 | Quick Overview and Sound Examples

Published on Aug 10, 2019 MickMazzMusic

"Quick overview and sound examples of the Oberheim Matrix 6 synthesizer made in the 1980s.

All sounds in the background music (expect for drums) are from the Matrix 6."

The Matrix-6 has something very few synths out there offer control wise - release velocity across the keyboard. You can modulate parameters by how quickly you release keys. It's almost the reverse of poly aftertouch if you think about it. Or a way around it - patents and costs preventing poly aftertouch at the time. BTW, for those that do not know, the Matrix-6 was my first synth and hence my alias, matrix and MATRIXSYNTH. launched back in 1997, before The Matrix movie. :) The green on black comes from the old site and a nod to old computer screens.
