Though I can't confirm that it'll work, I'd like to ask that when coding
your program you use standard navigation commands like tab and arrow keys
and ALT key to access the menus, as this will greatly help blind users in
getting around the program. I've been looking for some way to edit my Matrix
6R and Matrix1000 for years that was a Windows based option that uses
standard commands, as I can't use a mouse to get around like sighted users
do. This has an added benefit, as it will also speed up use for sighted
users who are keyboard savvy, especially if you incorporate what are called
"Accelerators" into your design, which are simply keystrokes that will jump
to a certain place. For instance, hitting the 1 key will jump to the buttons
for OSC1, 2 jumps to OSC2's parameters, F goes to the filter, A goes to the
amp, M goes to matrix modulation, etc. (E for envelope 1 and V for envelope
Just a thought. Another useful option would be to assign a MIDI parameter to
each control on the program, so a knob box can access the parameters and
allow users to edit on the fly by using real knobs.

Subject: [oberheim] Matrix 6/6R : How to select a Split by midi progam
I am developping a windows editor for the Matrix 6/6R/1000 familly and i
have a midi question.
Since i only have the Matrix 1000 at hand, i could not test one thing for
the Matrix 6/6R : how to select a split memory item through midi.
I came up with the idea to use the following XPander message wich is
supposed to be recognized by the 6/6R : F0 10 02 0D 02 F7 This message
should set the Matrix to 'split mode'.
Then i send a classic program change with number 0 to 49.
Can someone confirm this will work
Or it there another way to select a
Thank you for your help.
