Command wing versus command wing XT

  • Good afternoon,

    What would you say the main difference is between the command wing and command wing XT in terms of what their use cases are? It looks like the command wing would be better for previz since you don't need to output to a network via Ethernet jacks. The command wing XT looks like it is better for real output since it can connect to a network. Also, we see that the XT version has 4 display ports. Since we'd be using OnPC on a computer, wouldn't we just be able to use the normal computer screens to have multiple screens? We're just trying to figure out if there are major drawbacks to either version. Any thoughts?



  • Command wing XT has a PC in it, while the normal Command wing does not, you need your own PC.

    From the XT Product Page:


    An onPC wing with real console feeling - you think that is impossible? Take a look at the grandMA3 onPC command wing XT! Experience the grandMA3 onPC console solution with the pre-installed onPC software on the built-in MA motherboard. Just connect a touch screen monitor and you can control 4 096 parameters right on the spot!

    and from the Command Wing Page:


    You have a computer or laptop with the grandMA3 onPC software installed? Then simply connect your onPC wing via USB and you are ready for programming. The command area looks the same as on the grandMA3 consoles including the five dual-encoders and 40 separate playbacks to directly control 4 096 parameters.

  • Thank you! I had read that, but probably glossed over it because it sounded sales-like. I guess we would have expected to see something like this in the list of specs. In any case, thank you for taking the time to clarify. No doubt that is THE big difference!
