MixEmergency supports MIDI control of almost all controls available on screen (such as the faders, transition select menu and loading media from the media bank). You can easily use a MIDI capable mixer to control MixEmergency.
MixEmergency also supports MIDI output (also commonly referred to as "MIDI feedback") - allowing you to sync compatible MIDI gear with the on-screen state of MixEmergency's controls.
To toggle MIDI mapping mode, push the MIDI button on the Main window of MixEmergency. All MIDI mappable controls will display whether they have been MIDI mapped when this mode is on. Controls that have a MIDI mapping will appear green, while those that have not will appear red.

The Info section can be used to verify that your MIDI device is communicating correctly with MixEmergency. When the Log MIDI Messages check-box is enabled, MIDI data received by MixEmergency will be logged in the lower text view.
The "In" and "Out" lights will briefly change to green when a MIDI message is sent or received.
It is recommended that you use the MIDI logging function only if you encounter problems assigning MIDI controls within MixEmergency. During live performance it is recommended that MIDI logging is disabled.
