Putting Matrix 6G to Work: A Cover of "Vitamin C" by Edgar Froese

You might recall the Matrix-6G Plug-In Editor for Reaper back in 2015. It's now available as a VST3.

"Matrix-6G VST3 is now available! It’s an editor and librarian plugin designed to work with Oberheim’s Matrix-6R rack-mount synth module from the mid-1980s.

The highlights:

Edit patches, matrix mod settings, splits, and master settings on the hardware from within your DAW.
Patch parameters are exposed to the plugin host and can be automated and/or controlled via external devices.
Several hundred patch presets are included, plus there are two storage banks where custom patches can be saved.
Helpful tooltip windows appear when you hover the mouse over parameter controls for a few moments. You can change the amount of time before the tips appear or turn them off entirely.
Compatibility: Reaper (version 6 and up) and Cubase (version 10 and up). Windows only. The plugin may work to some extent with the Matrix-1000 module or the Matrix-6 keyboard model, but I have no way to test this. The plugin is most likely not compatible with any third-party modification of the Matrix-6R’s firmware.

Matrix-6G VST3 version 1.0.0 is now available for free download.

It is also completely open-source, and there’s information about getting the source code on my website as well.

I’ve put up a video demonstrating how to set up tracks for using Matrix-6G in Reaper and Cubase: [1st video above]

As a use-test of the plugin, I did a cover of “Vitamin C” by Edgar Froese using only sounds from the Matrix-6R treated with assorted effects boxes and plugins. Here’s a video that goes through the tracks in the Reaper project for the song and displays the Matrix-6G settings for each of the voices used: [2nd video above]"
