Introduction

The user interface of MADRIX is arranged in a specific way.

MADRIX GUI Overview

While there seem to be a lot of different areas, the GUI can be divided into 3 main sections:

Left [Effect Pipeline Left]
Middle Section [Main Output]
Right [Effect Pipeline Right]

 

This screenshot clarifies the layout of the 2 pipelines [Effect Pipeline Left is shown in yellow / Effect Pipeline Right is shown in green] and the middle section:

 

That means you can work independently on the left side or on the right side of MADRIX. You could compare this workflow with the A/B setup of a DJ.

 

 

Hierarchy

Furthermore, you can find a distinct visual and logical hierarchy for each effect pipeline:

Workflow Example

Thanks to the features of MADRIX, you can flexibly work in many ways.
A possible live work-flow could look like this, for example:

Select an effect on the left side and put it out onto the LEDs.
Prepare the next effect on the right side.
Switch to the right side [using the Crossfader].
Prepare the next effect on the left side.
Etc.
