Media Window

The Media Bank is a place to store media that you may use often or for ambient video/Quartz Compositions (there is an option in the Preferences to load these automatically when a song without a video is loaded in Scratch Live). You can toggle the display of the Media window from the Window menu, the Media window button on the Main window, or by using the keyboard shortcut ⌘4

To load media into the Media Bank simply drag and drop files from the Finder onto the desired position.

You can drag an entire folder onto this area to have MixEmergency scan and load the contents of the folder. When using this folder mode, it is capable to load more than 16 clips into the Media Bank.

Clicking on an entry in the Media Bank will load the media to the deck that is not currently displayed on the output window. This is a feature to avoid situations where you may accidentally load media onto the wrong deck. You can also drag and drop media from the Media Bank directly onto a deck to bypass this safety feature.

Right-clicking on an item in the Media Bank will open a pop-up menu with options to:

  • Delete
  • Reveal in Finder
  • Generate Thumbnail
  • Generate All Thumbnails
  • Syphon (for adding and saving a Syphon input)
  • NDI (for adding and saving a NDI input)
  • Clear Media Bank

You can assign MIDI controls to individual media entries by following the instructions in the MIDI section of the manual.
