Click Map in the Effect Section of the user interface and the Map Settings window will be opened.


In the Tiling section click on the Preset button and choose Top from the list.

Afterwards, change the Tile Mode to Mirror V

Change the value of Offset Y to 3


Close the Map Effect window.
The Preview should now look similar to this picture:


So far, we have created a mirrored Equalizer effect. In addition, we want to change the mirrored part further. Therefore, please add a new Layer: Click Layer > New

Note: After adding the new Layer, the Preview of MADRIX will be black. Do not worry about it.


Please do not change any effect parameters of the newly inserted Layer. The Layer should remain black.
But please select the newly created Layer Color and click Map again. In the Mapping section, click on the Preset button and change it to Bottom

Close the Map Settings window.


Change the Opacity of the Layer Color to 170. You can control the Opacity with the horizontal slider on top of the Effect Section


Your effect should now look like the following picture in the MADRIX Preview.

Note: You can change the colors of the Equalizer and the mirrored Equalizer will change the colors automatically, too.


Congratulations! You have just created a mirrored effect.
