How to POLYCHAIN The Oberheim Matrix 1000 + Install the MASSIVE Tauntek 1.2 firmware upgrade!!!

Note the Matrix-1000 has 1000 presets, but only the first 200 are user programmable.

"The Oberheim Matrix 1000 has been around since 1988, but did you know that it can be polychained with up to 5 other units?!? This is not a simple MIDI In/Thru setup... One unit must set as the master and then distributes the incoming note data evenly between itself and each of the slaves. Matrix 6 and 6Rs can join the party too, but only as slave units.

We also demonstrate how to upgrade these units with the @Tauntek 1.20 OS upgrade. Add in a @Kiwitechnics patch editor and you've got a monster vintage analog synthesizer. Enjoy our quick demonstration of 3 x Matrix 1000s: 18 voices & 36 DCOs of creamy Oberheim goodness..."
