Which Matrix 1000 controller? Control Surfaces

Which Matrix 1000 controller?

Hi folks

I recently wobbled and considered selling my trusty old Matrix 1000 to help fund a younger and more attractive model. However, after an evening tinkling on the old girl I folded and decided I couldn't part with her. So now I'm interested in picking up a hardware controller to breath a bit of life back into our relationship (sorry, this is all starting to sound a bit weird...)

As far as I can see there are a few more options on the market since I last looked. The Kiwi Technics box looks great but seems pretty expensive. I've also found this:

Stereoping Synthesizer Hardware Programmer for Oberheim Matrix 1000 / 6 / 6R - Stereping

Any users? I'm not put off by a bit of soldering so building it wouldn't be too much of a chore - but it is only for use with the obi 1000. I also seem to remember reading about another custom controller originating from somewhere South America but I can't seem to find that online anymore.

I've tried Lemur and found it a bit of pain to set up besides I'm more of a knob twiddler than a screen stroker (getting weird again...)

Any user experiences welcome!

I didn't even know these things existed. I've been using Obie Editor to edit the patches. What's the advantage of this?

There's a thread on here somewhere on using the Novation Remote 25 SL/zero on the Obie Matrix/6r. I tried to figure it out briefly and didn't succeed. If you search my past posts you'll find it.
