    Hi /Max,

    I couldn't re-create this problem; no matter what, I'm always able to change the value of the Group Master, either through EditOption or through the master assigned on the executors. I'd assume it's something to do with the showfile.

    Which software version and operating system are you using?

    Could you send your showfile to



    Hello Selvam,

    Can you describe where exactly the update process is failing?

    To download v1.1.3.2, visit the website here.

    Click on Software + Release Notes followed by choosing the download file for your system.

    For MA Hardware, click on grandMA3 Software

    For Windows 10, click on grandMA3 onPC Software for Windows.

    For macoS, click on grandMA3 onPC Software for macOS.



    Hi sandersalden,

    The reason for modifying the long-press-update is to benefit the showfiles with busking needs.

    To allow for operators to press and hold a pool object and release it at the right timing, fashioning an easier trigger.

    Try it out ;)

    Hence, the long-press update works on View Bar (more precisely: Views assigned on Vew Bar ;) )



    Hi Bentoy,

    This seems to be a bug.

    A phaser is loosing it's references when changing other properties like Speed, Phase, Transition, etc.

    Additionally, it also requires an 'Integrate' for the first step.

    Will get back shortly.


    This is a confirmed bug and we hope to fix in the upcoming versions.

    Thank you very much!



    Hi Kai,

    Here is what I tried.

    In gMA2:

    • Patch the required fixtures .
    • Go to Backup > Internal > Export to grandMA3 1.1.3

    The showfile is exported with the same name as it is in gMA2.

    In gMA3:

    • Menu > Backup > Internal
    • Load the exported-gMA2 showfile.
    • Menu > Patch > Fixture Types
    • Select the required Fixtures and press "Export"
    • Leave the name space as it is (<Default>)
    • Then load your actual showfile you are building.
    • Go to Menu > Patch > Insert New Fixture
    • Go to the "User" tab and you will find your fixtures

    Hope that helps.



    Hi Caleb,

    Can you please explain what you mean by "enabling the grand master"?

    By "grand master", I assume you're referring to the Black Out fader that is on the bottom right corner of the onPC software.

    Am I correct?

    Maybe some pictures or a short video could help :)



    Hi Steven,

    That's a nice idea.

    Like Andreas mentioned, it's not easy to do at the moment.

    If you think you need it to speed up your programming, you can try the following:

    Create an empty Sequence far away from your current Sequences (for example Sequence 1001) with two cues.

    In the CMD section of the first cue, type:

    Next Step; Off Sequence 1001

    In the CMD section of the second cue, type:

    Previous Step; Off Sequence 1001

    Then in the commandline, type:

    Assign Sequence 1001 At SpecialExec 6

    This will assign the Sequence at the right Rotary Knob.

    Then type these to assign GoFastForward & GoFastBack:

    Edit SpecialExec 6 Property "EncoderRight"

    In the pop-up, choose >>>

    Edit SpecialExec 6 Property "EncoderLeft"

    In the pop-up, choose <<<

    You can then use the same Rotary Knob to create/browse through the Steps.

    Hope that's helpful.

    The latest (3 Dec, 2019) article, I could find was by macrumours:


    In 2016 and 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro models, the left side Thunderbolt 3 ports had reduced bandwidth due to the fact that the chips used in the machines only supported up to 12 PCI Express lanes.

    Please use F8.

    You can also click on the four corners of the screen in this order:





    For MacBook Pro Users who would like to use the grandMA3 onPC Command Wing, please use the original adapters from Apple.

    This one from example.

    Most importantly, please use the first USB-C port on right-hand side (marked in the picture attached).

    For 2016 & 2017 models (at least), the USB-C ports on the left-hand side have reduced bandwidth.

    The one on the right (marked) seem to have the highest bandwidth.
