The grandMA3 onPC command wing contains the command section of the grandMA3 console for easy and intuitive use of the grandMA3 onPC software. With the help of a USB connection between the grandMA3 onPC command wing and the computer on which the grandMA3 onPC software is running, all inputs and outputs of the grandMA3 console, as well as DMX, MIDI, Timecode and remote control options are available to the user.

In situations where it is physically difficult to use the grandMA3 full-size console, the grandMA3 onPC command wing combined with the grandMA3 onPC software enables programming and playback within the grandMA3 system. This is precisely why the grandMA3 onPC command wing is a backup solution within the grandMA3 system, but also a powerful control solution for travel or for smaller theaters, shows, clubs and for pre-programming.

Another advantage of the grandMA3 system is the simple possibility of connecting backup devices. For example if you use the grandMA3 onPC command wing XT as the main lighting console that controls lighting fixtures via MA nodes or nodes from other manufacturers, by simply adding a computer with running grandMA software to the system, you can adjust its operation as a backup device. In this way, in case of failure of the lighting desk, the PC takes over the lighting control without delay and without losing any data, working in sync all the time.
