Requirements

  • iPhone oder iPad with iOS version 10.0 or higher
  • grandMA2 version 3.2.2 (or newer)
  • A fast WiFi connection without multicast filtering

Important Information

A fast WiFi connection without multicast filtering is required!
Works only with "TimecodeSlot" pools (MIDI in, LTC in, generator, ...).
Currently tested with grandMA2 version 3.2.2 - 3.5.0 (current).
This app "wire-tap's" the grandMA2 network session, so there is always a small risk of losing functionality with new software versions.
This is NOT an official app from MA Lighting Technology or MA Lighting International!
