Native Module

The native Companion module for MIxEffect exposes many functions of MixEffect through drop-down menus, sliders, and input fields, obviating the need to remember the OSC path and argument order.

NOTE: Not all OSC commands are supported in the module, so it's also recommended that you create a new Generic OSC module in your Companion instance.


The 3.1.x stable candidate for Companion includes the native MixEffect module.


To install the Companion module, follow these steps:

  1. Double-click the EXE or DMG file and follow the on-screen instructions to install Companion.

  2. Open Companion.

  3. For the Label field, enter a name by which you'll identify the module (i.e. mixeffect).

  4. Select the type of ATEM switcher you have in the Model drop-down menu.

  5. If you want to take advantage of feedback, check Enable Feedback Polling. If so, you'll have to configure the HTTP Feedback Server in MixEffect.

  6. Click Save in Companion.

Do not enter the IP address of your ATEM switcher here. The MixEffect Module for Companion works by communicating to your ATEM switcher via MixEffect.

Creating a Test Button

  1. Go to the Buttons tab.

  2. Create a new button.

  3. Enter a name for the button.

  4. Click the green Regular Button button.

  5. Click + Add key down/on action in the Press actions section.

  6. Enter the label you enter in Installation Step 4. A list of available actions will appear.

  7. Choose an action.

  8. Enter all relevant fields.

  9. Click the Test Actions button to test your button.

If everything is configured properly, the action will take place on MixEffect and your ATEM switcher. If nothing happens, verify that your IP Address and Port Number are set properly and that OSC is enabled in MixEffect.
