Well it considers patch...
For standard sustain you must go edit modulation matrix and connect pedal 2 as source with envelope 1 release as destination.... put some value on it!!!!
It works on mine M-6!!

Subject: [oberheim] Using Sustain Pedal for Matrix 6R
Date: Sunday, June 5, 2011, 8:25 PM
I just purchased a Matrix 6R and have been enjoying the sounds and exploring the somewhat cumbersome programming, and will dive into the available software programmers next.
One thing that has me stumped is how to get the sustain pedal functionality working for the Matrix. I know Lever 2 is the correct input for this, and the manual even states that this would mostly commonly be used for this purpose, besides triggering and other capabilities. However, it hasn't been working for any of the patches that were already loaded on this synth and digging through the manual I can't find a way to do this. I am using a standard Yamaha sustain pedal, and have also attempted to plug the sustain pedal into my MIDI controller (Motif ES8), but this also doesn't manage to allow the matrix to sustain.
I can see Lever parameters in DCO and VCA/VCF but these pertain to enabling vibrato/bend modulation.
I can also route the Lever2 in the Matrix, but there is no way to route it to the Sustain on the Env2, which controls the VCA (I believe - this thing is deep!).
Any help would be appreciated! I did a search and found a discussion on Expression pedals but not sustain.
