Note: If you have never worked with the Matrix Generator before, please have a look at the tutorial to »The First Patch

We will now patch 100 LEDWalker LW-RGBVT100-D3216 tubes.



Start MADRIX and press the F2 key. The Matrix Generator will be opened.


Set up the following settings:

Protocol: Should be DMX
Product: Change it to LEDWalker DMX Vertical Tube - LW-RGBVT100-3216 48 Ch Mode
Rotation: Should be Original
Count: We want to have 10 tubes side by side and 10 in a row. Therefore, set X to 10, Y to 1, and Z to 10
Offset: Leave the default setting.
Start Corner: Top Left
Main Orientation: Vertical
Snake Mode: Disabled
Z-Order: Front To Back
Z-Snake Mode: Flip H and Flip V are disabled
DMX Start Channel: 1
DMX Start Universe: 1

Click OK


You can see the following Preview in MADRIX:

That is no 3D Preview, yet. To change the Preview to 3D, perform a click with the right mouse button on one of the Previews and select 3D Mode in the pop-up menu.


To see the patched matrix better (and in 3D), change the color of the SCE Color Effect.

Navigation in the Preview is very easy. Use the mouse wheel to zoom in and zoom out or hold the left mouse button down and move the mouse to turn the matrix within the Preview.


Congratulations! You have created a 3D Patch and changed the view to 3D in MADRIX.
