SHARING: say hello to Mr Matrix!

November 2, 2012 | 12:43 am

I was teaching the other day and one of my students had this patch with lots of effects in it. They were all routed to a central matrix~ object. It was really powerful but let down by the fact that controlling the matrix~ can be quite confusing esp when performing live. Personally I don’t like having to think in rows and columns when I just want to put the delay after the gate instead of before it.

Today I made a first step towards solving this problem and Mr Matrix was born, have a look at the attached patch and hopefully it will be pretty self explanatory. Basically you define your FX blocks, they appear in a GUI and you can drag them around to re-order or remove them from the signal chain. I’ve inculded some very basic FX for you to demo but the intention is you’ll fill up Mr Matrix with your own creations.

Have fun and let me know how you get on….

Really well implemented! Could you post Mr. Matrix in the Projects area of the site so there is a clearer path to finding the great work you’ve already done?

Good idea Brian.

Just made an update to Mr Matrix where you can control the FX parameters by sliding the FX boxes around – FUN!



Have fun,
