The third major update this year has been released for the LED lighting control software MADRIX. The new version 2.10 will be officially presented at LDI 2010 in Las Vegas. Again, this is a free update for every user of MADRIX. Among many improvements, there are several new central features:
MIDI Remote Editor – In Control.
Free MIDI mapping has been a long-awaited feature. With MADRIX 2.10 users are now able to assign controls freely and individually for any MIDI console. The MIDI Remote Editor provides the tools to create simple as well as complex configurations to control the MADRIX software remotely. At the same time, several new MIDI maps have been added to the selection of pre-defined MIDI maps.
WASAPI – Soundastic.
The Windows® Audio Session API has been implemented to enhance audio capturing and the MADRIX audio analysis. The audio analysis has always been a significant feature of the software. From now on, it will perform even faster and more precisely under Windows® Vista and 7. All Sound2Light and Music2Light effects are automatically getting a big improvement due to the implementation.
SCE Video – Deinterlacing.
Combining MADRIX live effects with live video streaming is becoming increasingly important to users of the software. The effect SCE Video has been updated to support capturing of interlaced sources as well as playback of interlaced video files. In addition, users can choose from several modes.
