All New


A New Effect Category

TRI Effects will be based on existing MADRIX Effects. On top, you can trigger them manually using DMX-IN or MIDI. This will add a whole new level of interaction.


A New Look And Feel

The user interface will be completely overhauled with helpful additions and useful reductions. Everything will be easier to read and easier to use.

Audio Playback

Audio Playback Of Videos

The media server capabilities will make a big leap. The audio track of videos can be put out directly. VJing will be more creative than ever.


Two Themes

Two fresh new GUI color schemes will allow you to work better in different environments. Choose freely between the dark theme and the light theme.



Unprecedented Performance

64 Bit

64-Bit Support

Support for 64-bit computing will not only provide access to more memory but also a performance boost for any existing system right out of the box.

Faster GUI

Faster GUI

The graphical user interface will react even faster. The improved speed is especially noticeable when changing between MADRIX Effects extremely quickly.

SCE Rotating Shapes

New Effect

SCE Rotating Shapes will be another great and versatile addition to the large variety of built-in effects that are generated live for you.


New FX Filters

The new Brightness Graph, Color Swap, and Swap Transformation filters will include many new ways to quickly modify your visuals even further.



Patch Editor Improvements
