Our Video Reference Guide for the Martin MAC Aura PXL's Internal FX Macros

Announced last year, the Martin MAC Aura PXL is the latest addition to the industry-renowned MAC Aura family known for their workhorse reliability, robust design, speed and versatility.  The Aura PXL is bigger and brighter than a MAC Aura, and features significantly higher intensity and a tighter beam than a MAC Quantum Wash.  With 141 Aura backlight LEDs and 19 Main Beam LEDs, the PXL is also the first wash light to accept multi-source video input, including Martin's own P3 video protocol. In this particular blog however we are going to take a look at its plethora of internal FX macros by way of of a complete video reference guide.


The MAC Aura PXL has a rich feature set of internal FX macros allowing maximum versatility even when time is of the essence.  We have created a video reference library with quick links so you can check out the effects and open that creative flare. These clips are designed to provide an insight into what pre-built effects macros are available, and please note that each effect can also have speed, colour, zoom range & output level manipulated simultaneously. Both the Aura and the Main Beam effects can be active at the same time.

There are six categories of Macros in the PXL - Beam Intensity FX, Beam Colour FX, Aura Intensity FX, Aura Colour FX, Beam and Aura Combined FX,  and Full Fixture FX.  We have created a YouTube video for each category, time-stamped in the YouTube description with each individual effect.  

We know that nothing beats seeing a fixture in the flesh but we are proud to be able to give you an insight into what the PXL has to offer, if you would like any more information or you are looking for a demo please feel free to reach out to us here at Sound Technology Ltd, Martin UK distributor, on 01462 480000 / info@soundtech.co.uk



Please view each video in YouTube to see time-stamped references to each FX in the video description.
