Bad Gear - Oberheim Matrix-1000

video upload by AudioPilz

"Welcome to Bad Gear, the show about the world's most hated audio tools. Today we are going to talk about Oberheim Matrix 1000. Is this 80s analog synth in the compact 19" rack format and little sibling of the Oberheim Matrix-6 on par with timeless classics like the Oberheim OB-X. Are you willing to enter the matrix of arcane sysex midi commands?
