Note:
The following patches were primarily created for the Oberheim Matrix 6/6R/1000.
Although many parameters are identical between the Oberheims and the Marions, there are still
some that can't be mapped! So these patches are not 100% compatible but nearly!

How autotuning is done right:
Ever wondered about the useless filter frequency modulation? You maybe have to tune your ASM right!
How is it done? Well, the ASM filters can be tuned automaticly by selecting "AutoTune: Filter" in
the "SYSTEM" menu. After that procedure you likely assume that the filters are all in tune, but
they aren't. You have to repeat the calibration until the tones produced by the selfoscillating
filters have nearly the same pitch!!

ASM Parameter Value Data:
The Synth crashes when it receives an "ASM Parameter Value Data" Sysex message and you have to
reset it to factory settings. To avoid that behaviour you can send NRPN messages instead!
