One after 969

One after 969


The Matrix 1000 is a bit of a weird beast; having 200 User and 800 ROM presets the majority of those are probably not much use to anyone. However there are some true Gems to be found in there.
Preset number 969 is one of those, a lovely mellow synth piano sound.

I’ve sampled this before to have it available in stereo, however got regularly annoyed that I didn’t do any Round Robins, so decided to have another go at it; this time with 4 Round Robins (I know it’s an even number, live with it Christian) and I decided to also record the delays I would normally use during hardware jams.

I hope this sound will be as inspirational to everyone here as it has been to me over the past four years.

As usual signal path is through a Studer transfromer into the 902 console converted through a Babyface.

This is a stunning instrument. So full, so well made, and incredibly inspiring. This makes it easy to make tracks sound great.

This is one incredibly sweet sounding synth piano. Incredible character and very, very usable. Getting sentimentally attached to this now – by far the best sounding sampled synths here, and probably one of the most under-rated patches of all time!
Thanks you, Robert, for bringing out this hidden gem and gifting this away for free!


Superb sound.

This is easily the best sounding synth instrument on Pianobook. I’ve never left a comment before. This time I had to. It’s just that good. Thank You.
