MA community drives software updates

MA Lighting has credited feedback from its grandMA2 user community as driving hundreds of improvements to the desk’s control software. Alongside these user-driven upgrades that the manufacturer describes as ‘assisting smoother workflow for the operator and programmer’, Version 3.3 of the software also has a new fixture library.

With the new software, the MA Lighting fixture library is now available online via the Fixture Share service. After logging in, users can add their own fixture files or download the latest versions of fixture files that were not available at the software release. Additional search and rating functionality allows users to generate their own favourite fixture library.

The release also adds link aggregation (LAG) functionality. This functionality is fully compatible with any standard Ethernet network switch and can be used in meshed installations. Furthermore, the RSTP status will be displayed for first-hand information about the link status of any port.

Another major feature of Version 3.3 is the fully re-worked partial show-read functionality. Offset for all Pan/Tilt functionality is now incorporated and several MIB workflow improvements have been added. Further new features include several new modes of DMX output function for the MA Network Nodes, RDM via Art-Net, reworked MA VPU Warper functionality including pixel-exact U/V mapping and much higher resolution, more creative layer mixing modes to allow different ways of blending between layers, snapshot/masking tools and a completely re-worked help system.

Staying with software updates but changing consoles, MA Lighting has also released version for its dot2 system. The new release includes a web remote facility, more master speed faders, increased effects functionality with instant access to groups and blocks, high-priority playbacks for specific fader arrangement for houselights or key lights, freely assignable sACN and Art-Net universes for DMX over Ethernet output as well as for DMX remote in, a new version of the Fixture builder, additional pre-defined position effects and several important bug-fixes.
