GMA TimecodeScreen

Hassle-free grandMA2 lighting console timecode display for your Mac.

Introduction

This tool allows viewing grandMA2 session timecode on Mac computers during rehearsals or shows.
The displayed timecode can also be used during screen recording or broadcasting.

The main advantage is the direct readout of grandMA2’s timecode session data, which makes travel with a lot of extra MIDI/LTC/… tools unnecessary.

Pro-tip: Use OBS (Open Broadcaster Studio) or similar software to embed timecode into your rehearsal video recordings. See the FAQ for a setup guide.

Feature Overview

  • grandMA2 session integration: Reads timecode from active session (without extra LTC/MIDI equipment)
  • Clipboad copy: Copy the currently displayed timecode to clipboard
  • Slot hotkeys: Quickly switch between timecode slots 1 to 8 with hotkeys
  • Always-On-Top: The timecode window stays always on top so you can open PDF/browser/… while still seeing the timecode
  • Jitter reduction: Display smooth timecode even on laggy WiFi connections
  • Timecode offset: Set an offset for running timecode to compensate network or recording delays

Free vs. Full Version

The app is free to use for smaller projects as long as timecode does not exceed 1h (01:00:00:00) without any other limitation.
For all projects using a higher timecode, you have to buy the full version as in-app purchase.

Requirements

  • Mac computer with macOS version 10.13 or higher
  • grandMA2 version 3.2.2 (or newer)
  • A fast WiFi connection (wired connection preferred) without multicast filtering (for device discovery)

Important Information

The app uses your default network connection. Make sure to have only one connection active when starting (see FAQ).
A fast WiFi connection without multicast filtering is required, a wired connection is preferred!
Works only with "TimecodeSlot" pools (MIDI in, LTC in, generator, …).
Currently tested with grandMA2 version 3.2.2 - 3.9.60 (current).
This app "wire-tap’s" the grandMA2 network session, so there is always a small risk of losing discovery functionality with new software versions.

This is NOT an official app from MA Lighting Technology or MA Lighting International!
