In this tutorial we want to add one Art-Net node with 8 output ports manually to the list of Art-Net nodes in MADRIX 5.



To Add and Configure Art-Net nodes in MADRIX 5 we have to open the Art-Net tab of the MADRIX Device Manager. If you don't know how to open the Device Manager in MADRIX 5 please have a look to the tutorial
»Connecting MADRIX 5 With Art-Net Nodes.


In the first step we want to add the node manually. Please double check if Art-Net is Enabled and click the + button below the list.




The New Device Options window opens and we have to configure our new Art-Net device(s).

We want to configure an output node with 8 ports and the data should be send in Unicast Mode.


We change the settings in the following way:

Port Type should be set to Output by default. If not we change it.

Number of New Devices needs to be changed to 2. According to the Art-Net standard, there is a maximum 4 ports per Art-Net node. If a node has more than 4 ports several devices with the same IP-Address must be configured.

Port Count Per Device we change to 4.

We also Enable the option Send Via Unicast Mode. Otherwise MADRIX will send the data in Broadcast Mode.


After we have changed this settings we click OK.





Now we can see two new Art-Net nodes are added to the list. Each node has 4 Universe OUT. We can see MADRIX has automatically assigned universe 1 to 8 but the IP-Addresses of two nodes are still wrong and we need to configure it.




To change the settings of an Art-Net node please click the Configuration button.




In the Art-Net Device Configuration we are able to change General settings, Device Port settings and the IP Configuration.


In this tutorial we want to change:

Short Name to Manually 01

Long Name to Manual Art-Net 01

IP-Address of the Send Unicast Mode to



In this step we have to change the settings for the second entry on the list. According to our task we want to create data for an 8 port Art-Net node. That means we also have to set the same IP-Address for the second line. For a better overview we also want to change the Short Name and Long Name to the same name like the first part.


To change the configuration for the second entry please repeat Step 4 and Step 5 for this line.

We want to change:

Short Name to Manually 01

Long Name to Manual Art-Net 01

IP-Address of the Send Unicast Mode to



Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to add manually Art-Net output devices in MADRIX 5.
