    Hey all!

    Does anyone know of an existing (or potentially upcoming) hardware test for the MA3 consoles? The feature that existed on MA2 was very useful. My primary interaction with MA devices is as a shop tech, creating networks for shows, and QCing gear when it returns from shows. I have had MA3 desks returned already that have hidden issues, such as a button not responding or a screen not responding to touch but still displaying images properly.

    The feature in MA2 that I am referencing is activated by doing the following:

    With desk powered down, press and hold 101+102, turning the desk on, and then also pressing 105. This can be repeated with 116+117, and 120. As well as X1+X2, and X5, in the same order of operations for their respective control modules.

    Thanks for any input!


    Hey Everyone,

    I'm noticing that speed masters assigned to executors read out in percentage from 0-100, rather than BPM. Is there a way to change this readout? I see that the global speed master reads out in BPM but only virtually. If this is assigned to an executor it reads 0-100%.


    Hey All,

    I've come across an issue where unpatched fixtures are not reacting to the GM. This is within the 3D window, and these fixtures are still showing up and are useable within 3D, but their intensities do not change when the GM is lowered, even in a full blackout (0% GM). Not sure if this is a bug, or just something I've missed in the past.

    Thanks for any input!
