Oberheim Matrix-1000 is the last real
analogue synth of Oberheim from the late 80's. The Matrix-1000
is a single-space compact rackmount module. It has the
same synth architecture as the Matrix 6.
Each of its 6 voices has 2 DCO's (digitally
controlled analogue oscillator), a low pass filter, 2
VCA's, 3 envelope gens, 2 LFO's, and 2 ramp gens.
The Matrix-1000 provides an excellent
source of pads, textures and ambient sounds. It has been
used by Apollo 440, Juno Reactor, Moby, Cirrus, Fatboy
Slim, Laurent Garnier, ATB, Depeche Mode, Future Sound
of London, Pet Shop Boys, and Faithless.
