    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Any configuration needed on MA2 side?

The driver uses the Web Remote API, so you have to configure GrandMA2 the same way. Please see section "Console Configuration" on this tutorial. Some functions work better if you are logged in the same user as in the desk/OnPC.


Can I control the 4 enconder wheels on OnPC?

Yes, you can dynamically control attributes (also aware of the selected resolution Normal/Fine/Ultra). You can also use encoders to directly control fixed attributes (Dimmer, Color, Pan, Tilt, etc.) using the "Attribute Scroll" function.


Does this work on MA Dot2 as well?

No. This driver is only for MA2 systems.


I can't connect to MA2 - why?

First of all, can you connect and login to the web-remote using a browser? If you can't, then the problem has nothing to do with this driver. Please make sure you configure your GrandMA2 correctly and can connect and login using the web-remote first.
Double check that you have followed all the instructions on this tutorial video.
Make sure you are running a the correct (compatible) version on your GrandMA2 system - please check above.


Does this work on GrandMA2 version X.Y.Z?

Releases will always be targeted at the latest GrandMA2 versions. If X.Y.Z is a fresh new release, please give us some time for upgrading this driver. If X.Y.Z is an old release, the answer is no.
