This panel can now be downloaded without sending me an email. I’m tired of answering all these letters.
Please read this text, otherwise you DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:
Some general information:
Please be aware that this panel is still in beta testing. Beta means that the software has not been fully tested and there may be bugs that have not yet been discovered. Thus, everyone who uses this panel is a beta tester and not an end user. Do not misunderstand me. Any error messages and suggestions are appreciated, but I will not accept accusations that I am having problems with your synthesizer (such as data loss) as a result of using this panel. This is the risk that you take when you use it.
Matrix 6 Information:
The Matrix-6 panel was designed by Bob Grieb for firmware v2.14 and up: http://www.tauntek.com/Matrix6Firmware.htm. It will not work correctly when using firmware versions prior to v2.14. It is noteworthy that fixed modulations do not work as expected. To enable Fixed Modulation to work with the Bob Grib firmware, set the “Sysex” parameter on Matrix-6 to “2” when using this panel. I don’t have Matrix-6, but I have a lot of firmware reports and I can tell you that Bob’s firmware (newest version 2.15) is really worth the hassle to open the Matrix case and replace that eprom with a socket.
Important: it is not possible to send sysex dumps to the M6 edit buffer. This complicates things a bit: the panel will always OVERWRITE the actual patch location on the synthesizer when loading a patch from the librarian and in many other cases, such as using a randomizer or editing a mod matrix. This is why you need to keep your patches if you don’t want to lose some of them. Before trying the panel, it’s best to do it with the sysex tool. There are reliable free tools for this. If you need help saving your patches, let me know. My beta tester was using patch 99 as my edit buffer. The panel does not change it when loading patches from the library, so it will always stay on patch 99.
Another important thing: the panel cannot find out the patch number. installed on Matrix-6. So, to get the same patch on the panel as on the synthesizer, you first need to use the Patch Select button on the panel to select the patch. Otherwise, the panel will overwrite the wrong patch, and you will not hear changes made, for example, the randomizer or modulation matrix.
Some time ago I made a tutorial for my SuperJX panel. All of my panels are more or less designed in the same way, so they might be useful to you.
The following paragraphs apply to some extent to all of my editors. It’s just that the buttons are not in the same places as in the screenshots:

Saving and loading Patches (partially)
A remark for Mac users: It seems that the AU-plugin does not work very well with Logic whereas with Ableton Live 9 it seems to work quite well . It really depends on your DAW how well the plugin performs.

One last hint: Morpheus’ hands with the red and the blue pill are buttons, kinda easter eggs…
