How to create a Matrixcontrol?

September 17, 2013 | 8:11 am

I am having some difficulty in understanding the matrixctrl object. I want to make a matrixcontrol like in the Berna synth http://www.giorgiosancristoforo.net/softwares/ but i do not understand how to do it. Can anyone give me some pointers?

I think he’s referring to the pane on the extreme left, a signal mixer-router matrix.

if i understand correctly, you want to route signals using matrixctrl?
just tie matrixctrl to the matrix~ object(see helpfiles for both).
(this is not generally considered the most efficient, so i’ve seen in professional situations, people create things explicitly using line~, but try the easy way first…)

if you already knew that(i may have misunderstood what exactly you’re confused about), ignore me :)

Do you mean routing things using line~ ?

…or is it the graphical aspect, like completely right in the image?

You need to create a custom Background- and Cell image file…

I am interested in how it would work. I mean the thing at the right side of the screen. It seems an interesting way to route data.

You are talking about controlling [router] with [matrixctrl].
