Introduction

Master and Audio Input Level are two central controls of the MADRIX user interface.

The Master controls the overall brightness of the Main Output [i.e. of the LED fixtures].
You will see the result in the Preview Output.
The Audio Input Level controls the maximum sound level to be used for the MADRIX real-time audio analysis.

Optimal Input Level

To get optimal results from the audio analysis, it is recommended to set up the audio input level correctly.

Adjust the audio signal to the orange/yellow level to get best results.
Levels that are too low will negatively affect the quality of the audio analysis.
Red lights indicate that levels are too high.
 
Use the AGC [Automatic Gain Control] for automatic control.
