Oberheim Matrix 1000

Reverb Estimated Price Range

  • $490$730

The Oberheim Matrix 1000 is the same architecture of the Oberheim Matrix 6 in a single space rack unit featuring 1000 Matrix Synth patches. Like the Matrix 6 and 6R, it features 6 voices of polyphony, 2 DCO's per voice, a low pass filter, 2 VCA's, 3 ADSRS and 2 LFOS. While it does have the same powerful sound engine as the Matrix 6, it can only be edited via an external MIDI editor and is largely seen as a preset driven Matrix 6 in a small space.

Years Produced: 1987-1994
