Matrix-12 (Xpander) Tutorial 1: Intro, Programmer, Primary Pages

This is the first tutorial in a series dedicated to editing sounds on the Oberheim Matrix-12 and Xpander synthesizers.  In this video I will cover the basics of creating and saving a SINGLE-mode patch.  If you already know how to get around in the programming interface you might want to skip this video.  Having a basic knowledge of editing synthesizers, oscillators, filters, LFOs, and envelopes will help get the most out of programing this beast.
