Introduction

The Main Output and accompanying Master, Audio Output Level, and Audio Input Level are central controls of the MADRIX user interface.

Several controls are available for the Main Output [including Color Filter, FX Filter, and Strobe].
The Master controls the overall brightness of the Main Output [i.e. of the LED fixtures].
The Audio Output Level controls the maximum sound level that is sent.
The Audio Input Level controls the maximum sound level that is received and used for the real-time audio analysis.

 

Main Output Controls

Main Output Color Filter

Color Filter - Filters the colors of the Main Output.

Left Mouse Click And Hold - Select the color using the Color Picker to activate the Color Filter.
Right Mouse Click - Calls up the context menu.

Edit... - Calls up the Color Fader Box.
Choose from 3 modes:
Allow Through - Lets only the color that is chosen through and filters every other color out.
Filter Out - Removes the color that is chosen and lets all other colors through.
Colorize - Applies the chosen color as tint color.
Defaults - Restores the default color. The default value is White, which means that no filter is active.

 

 

Main Output FX Filter

Filter - Applies special filters to quickly change your visuals. Learn more »Filters [FX]

 

Main Output Strobe

Strobe - This strobe applies directly to the Main Output.

 

Left Mouse Click and Hold - Activates the strobe. Continue to hold as long as the strobe should be active [Flash button].
- Simply release the mouse button to deactivate the strobe again.

 

Strobe Frequency - Sets the speed of the strobe.

- Left Mouse Click and Hold - Allows you to choose the frequency.
- Right Mouse Click - Restores the default value. The default value is 6.3 Hz.

 

Strobe Color - Allows you to choose the color of the strobe.
- Simply hover over the new color with your mouse and release the mouse button to select the color.

- Right Mouse Click - Calls up the context menu.

Edit... - Calls up the Color Fader Box.

Defaults - Restores the default color. The default value is White.

 

Strobe Mode - Defines how the main output strobe works.

- Right Mouse Click - Calls up the context menu. You can choose from 3 different modes:
[Depending on the visual result you want to achieve, one mode might be more favorable than the others.]
Output And Strobe Color - Strobes between the regular output and the strobe color you have chosen. As such, it will affect the effects that are put out. But if for the most part the output has the same color as the strobe, the actual strobe effect might be difficult to see.
Output And Black - Strobes between the regular output and the color black. The strobe color you have chosen will be ignored. Choose this mode if you want to make sure that the output itself is strobed.
Black And Strobe Color - Strobes only between the color black and the strobe color you have chosen. The output will be ignored. Chose this mode if you want to achieve a pure strobe that is independent of the output and will always be clearly visible.

Defaults - Restores the default value. The default value is Output And Strobe Color.

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 in order to avoid an input signal that is too low.
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.
