Arduino Led strip control with MadMapper 2.1

MadMapper 2.1 can now control Arduino Compatible LED Strips .

LED output through an Arduino compatible device (Teensy 3.1). LEDs are 7 meters APA 102 (7*60=420 LEDs with 3 channels per LED). It could be any digital LED strip compatible with FastLED (ie ws2811 & ws2812). More info and arduino source here:

MadMapper 2.1 Release

Madmapper 2.1 is an important upgrade for stability. Important issues were fixed in MadMapper 2.1!  Update now for your upcoming project! Go to www.madmapper.com/yoursapce to download an updated version!
Our dev team worked intensively to make MadMapper even more solid and flexible.  Madmapper now supports Art-Net 3 (4096 universes)


+ Added the possibility to import / export ArtNet Unicast routing table as CSV file

 Fixture auto-patch:
+ When duplicating a fixture (or using copy/paste), the new fixture will be patched in the first “hole” after this fixture (generally in the same universe)

+ When creating a fixture, if a fixture is selected, the new fixture will be patched in the first “hole” after selected fixture (generally in the same universe)

+ To fully support ArtNet 3 (and remove the 256 DMX universes limitation), we removed subnet from address and let the user choose a universe number between 0-32767 (for devices that are still using the old subnet/universe, the universe in MadMapper must be subnet * 16 + universe. For instance subnet 1-universe 3 in old convention is universe 1*16+3 = universe 19 in new convention)

+ It is now possible to change ArtNet Universe, channel or anti-aliasing on a multi-selection of fixtures

+ Fixture definition editor: add scrollbar, reduced text size and be sure the cell size is big enough for the channel number

+ LED Scanner: Added the possibility to scan over multiple universes at once

+ Confirmation dialog when quitting the application


* Fixed major issue with BlackMagic devices

* Fixed a possible issue in nVidia drivers

* Soft edge gamma setting was not restore properly

* Fixed issue restoring Fixture Sliders when recalling preset

* Fixed flickering in Enttec DMX USB Pro output

* Fixed relinking of 3D mesh files

* Fixed issue reloading a project with a calibrated 3D obj for which we miss the mesh file

* Fixed Stage mask size on fullscreen

* Stage background is now displayed when “Output / Show Info” is activated

* Fixed Software Startup issue with non latin characters  (japanese, chinese)
