MATRIX is a Kontakt sound library* based on the best sounds of the famous Oberheim Matrix-1000 synthesizer.

Featuring a wide range of warm analogue sounds, this collection lets you add dynamic basses, vivid leads and fat pads to your musical productions.

• 246 Kontakt patches (in 6 categories)
• over 1.1 GB of 44kHz/24 bit samples (1812 perfectly looped wav files)
• 12 midi controllable knobs for realtime tweaking and for midi automation of the most important synth parameters
• extensive editing techniques: multiple velocity layers, round-robin, alternate sample starts to achieve fat, lively and realistic analogue sounds
• exclusive IR sample collection for the convolution reverb of Kontakt

MATRIX is available in Reason refill format as well.

Midi implementation

The following simplified MIDI implementation chart is designed as a quick reference guide that allows you to identify at a glance which MIDI control change (CC) messages are implemented by Revolver in Kontakt.

Midi event    Effect
CC 07         channel volume
CC 10         channel pan
CC 14         attack time of the filter envelope
CC 15         decay time of the filter envelope
CC 16         release time of the filter envelope
CC 18         filter envelope amount
CC 71         resonance of the internal LP filter
CC 72         release time of the amplitude envelope
CC 73         attack time of the amplitude envelope
CC 74         cutoff frequency of the internal LP filter
CC 75         decay time of the amplitude envelope
CC 76         sustain level of the amplitude envelope
CC 91         adjusts the amount of the insert FX (delay)
CC 94         adjusts the send level of the send FX

In addition, in most cases: modwheel (CC 01) controls the filter modulations, aftertouch adds vibrato effect.
