The grandMA3 software is the soul of the grandMA3 platform and is designed to accommodate the current and future needs of lighting control. The software has a refined user interface designed to be ergonomic yet fully featured. Users can customize their workflow to incorporate favourite options and features, without cluttering their workspace. Standard default-configurations for screen views and playback layout are comprehensive but can be customized, providing a new level of flexibility that many grandMA console users will appreciate.
The grandMA3 represents a radical re-think of what’s possible from a lighting control platform. The system features ground-breaking concepts from top industry visionaries and is designed to make practical tasks more intuitive. The new General Fixture Type Format (GDTF) protocol is supported natively, ensuring fixtures perform precisely as their manufacturers intended and resulting in less time wasted during set-up.
The playback options on grandMA3 allow for maximum usability of all sequences. Users can now assign any function to any action of a button, fader or encoder. From a simple GO+ functionality on a single button press, to fast-forwarding when an encoder is turned clockwise and fast-backwards when turned anti-clockwise.
In addition to the advanced functionality, the grandMA3 can still master all of the basics:
Selecting fixtures, adjusting values, storing presets and playing back cues ‘should’ all feel familiar, but improved.
Better overview, faster access and more accurate information creates an improved user experience whilst programming and busking shows.
The grandMA3 software incorporates a programmer with active values, which is seamlessly integrated into the overall playback. The programmer can be specifically masked or filtered to instantly locate key information.
Preview is available as well as Blind, Highlight and Solo functionality. Store options speeds-up the workflow for secure data handling at any time. Timing can be stored or assigned to any Cue, Preset and even individual attributes of each fixture.
Customizable Appearance and Scribble functionality are available for personalizing the look and feel of all user views and data.
The grandMA3 software for all MA products will be pre-installed including all necessary drivers and OS. The grandMA3 onPC software will be available as free download.
