The massively powerful Oberheim Matrix-12 has been resurrected at last. Using their TAE™ modeling technology, they are able to recapture this beast of a synthesizer and bring it to you.
The Matrix 12 was the first programmable analog synthesizer that took the best features of a preset voice path and modular flexibility. This bold combination made it a force of nature and something that had not been seen before. It also had a 15 mode filter system that enabled it to have sounds that had never been heard before.
Every point in the signal path is important when modeling the sound of such a revered instrument. So to establish the proper foundation, they perfectly recreated the tonal characteristics of the original 2 oscillators and their waveforms in Matrix-12 V. And it was equally critical to capture every nuance of its 15 filter modes, so they kept at it until they had been modeled perfectly! Another factor in defining the complex sound of the Matrix-12 was the amazing number of modulation sources and destinations it provided. This was a level of sophistication previously only available in a fully modular system. So to complete the emulation we modeled these capabilities also, even surpassing them. With a nearly endless number of possible modulation routings in Matrix-12 V you can create sounds with highly organic qualities not found in other synthesizers.
A true chamelion of a synthesizer. With its 15 filter modes you can create everything you need from the thin and airy to the brash and bold.
While the Matrix-12 was amazing in itself, they pushed it further by adding a new effects chain for further processing of the sound. They also expanded the maximum number of modulation routings from 20 to 40, giving you even more creative freedom. Add to this the ability to control all the parameters via MIDI, and now you can do automations in a DAW or manually that could never be done before.
