    Martin,
    Question re media output.
    Is it possible to output a media effect to a matrix?
    I have some ideas about playing video on my mega tree/front fence array and I want to be able to hear the audio as well.
    at a pinch I could output the media and then use a live input but I would prefer to not use external hardware.
    Loving the program, especially that you have a fully functional demo.

    I will answer for Martin, yes LF media effect does output the audio and it can be used for driving effects like sound 2 light, even based on frequency band.

    Cheers Neil,
    I might have phrased it badly,
    I want to use the media playback effect (which at the moment only seems to go to a video output)but play the video output to a matrix.


    If i use the matrix effect with video dropped in you don't get the audio.
    Im looking for a work around that doest involve out puting the media via a second VGA/DVI out, via a convertor of some kind and then back in to use the live button on the matrix effect.

    I think if you try Madrix Software could work

    For the record,
    matrix media playback with audio is an option in the media settings menu.

    FYI
    Resolved this.
    There is an option in the preferences, media window: output audio from matrix media playback. (Or something along those lines. )
