Patch Touch: for Oberheim Matrix is a patch editor for the Oberheim Matrix-1000, Matrix-6, and Matrix-6r synthesizers. If you have one of these synths then this is the editor for you! Patch Touch gives you touch-based control over all of the voice parameters on your Matrix. Just make a change on the screen, and the change is instantly sent to your synthesizer.
Patch Touch has been designed to give you access to as much as possible all on a single screen, making it easier to change and understand the structure of your patch.
Here are some more features:
* Copy/Paste envelopes
* Create random patches
* Copy the current patch from your synth to your iOS device, for further editing
* Save your patch from Patch Touch to the memory on your synth!
* Play the synth using the app's built-in mini-keyboard (with aftertouch support)
Use this app either with a MIDI adapter for your iOS device, or via a wireless MIDI connection to your Mac or PC, with your Matrix synthesizer connected to your Mac or PC via MIDI.
* An Oberheim Matrix-1000/6/6r synthesizer
* A MIDI adapter for your iOS device, OR a Mac or PC connected to your Matrix via MIDI and a wi-fi connection between your Mac or PC and your iOS device.
NOTE: This app does NOT make any sound! It's just an editor for your Matrix. If you don't have a Matrix synthesizer, this app won't do anything useful for you.

Bug fixes for Matrix 6 and 6r. Negative parameter values are now handled correctly, and program change messages are sent to the synth to keep it in sync with Patch Touch.
Ratings and Reviews
Worth it and mandatory.
I've been using Patch Touch for close to a year now. I love the interface and editing capabiliities. This is a mandatory companion for a Matrix 6/6r/1000. Completely avoid frustration in membrane-programming. Patch Touch transfers the entire patch after editing, effectively giving editor access to EVERY parameter, including the non sysex mod matrix!
PLEASE: Add an option not to transfer the entire patch when editing any sysex parameters... Matrix-6 OS 2.14 has made editing via sysex very fast without lag. Any sysex change gets transfered and then gets overwritten by the entire patch transfer, creating a drop-out.
SMALL WISH: Arpeggiator ability in the mini keyboard
Buggy for the money
Great interface, but it's a little buggy for the money. I stopped using it after a few hours. Sure you can edit on the iPad, but the app has some issues. Back up your patches before using.
Simple, intuitive and most importantly no bugs. Thank you!
