The MA onPC command wing paves the way for mobile use of the highly flexible and powerful grandMA2 control system. In combination with the free of charge grandMA2 onPC software, the MA onPC command wing is a portable 2,048 parameter control solution that can be used nearly in any location – and all for an affordable price.
Designed as the perfect hardware expansion to the grandMA2 onPC software, the MA onPC command wing enables the look and feel of the software to be as close to a real grandMA2 console as possible. Thanks to the MA onPC command wing – incorporating the command section of the grandMA2 consoles – it has never been easier to use the grandMA2 onPC software. With a simple USB connection between the MA onPC command wing and the computer running the grandMA2 onPC software, all inputs and outputs of a grandMA2 console are available to the user. DMX, Midi, Timecode and Analogue Remote are all on hand directly at the MA onPC command wing.
Wherever it is physically difficult to use a grandMA2 console, the MA onPC command wing, in conjunction with the grandMA2 onPC software, enables the customer to program or playback within the grandMA2 world.
Due to its compact size the MA onPC command wing is perfect for traveling – even as hand luggage on a plane. However the MA onPC command wing is not only designed for tours. It is also ideal for smaller shows and clubs, for programming in a theatre auditorium as well as for pre-programming. It’s also the perfect choice for any MA enthusiast to enter the world of MA Lighting.
If 2048 parameters are not enough, the MA onPC command wing can be expanded by using one of the existing MA 2Port node options. To do this you can either use an MA 2Port Node onPC or an MA 2Port Node onPC PRO. An MA 2Port Node onPC will give 512 additional parameters and an MA 2Port Node onPC PRO will add 1,024 parameters. As MA Lighting sticks to its rules, an MA 2Port Node onPC only counts once and only the one with the most parameters is added. Means if you add a second MA 2Port Node onPC it just provides additional DMX connectors.
Pricing has not yet been confirmed. The onPC Command Wing is expected to be released the first quarter of 2012. One other thing to note, the faders are not motorized. For further information, visit wing.malighting.com.
