With the grandMA micro MA Lighting has designed one of the most compact moving light controllers ever for more than just entry level applications. Additionally this console includes all features of many conventional lighting consoles. Therefore this mid range desk is suitable for small concerts, lighting on tour, effect lighting for fairs and exhibitions as well as for smaller theatres and TV -studio use. The grandMA micro offers 1024 individual parameters for smart control of conventional dimmers, Moving Lights from the built-in library or self-created fixtures of any kind.
The micro includes all its components in a most compact desktophousing with everything built in; no external power supplies,
Processor Units or monitors are required. It is based on a most reliable industrial computer board which was design to resist even stronger environmental influences.
The grandMA micro opens up to the world EtherNet communications for the transmission of DMX data and for the use of its free software companion grandMA 3D. It has got an open link to many of the control protocols already in use on the market.
A new hardware platform for maximum reliability
Enter the new compact class
MA has designed this new console around the new industrial
single PCB computer with a Geode 266 MHz processor chip. This
computer has all necessary links to the external world on-board
from a mouse and keyboard connection to a auto
sensing 10/100 Mbit/s EtherNet port. For operating system,
software and showfile archive a 128 MByte CF-flashcard is
used. A built in floppy disk drive can be used for external archive
options or to upgrade to the latest version of software. For a
sneak control of Moving Lights a connection for an external
industrial trackball is provided.
Hardware - All-On-Board:
The grandMA micro housing contains everything that is needed to work. No additional PC or power supply is needed.
Programmes, lamp type library and actual software version are stored on a 256MB Compact Flash disk.
The full colour TFT screen is one of the most distinctive aesthetic features of the grandMA micro.
It is equipped with the same high-quality touch screen, that people have meanwhile learned to love on the grandMA.
The display is totally user configurable.
They can be used for programming, playback or display purposes
There are 10 faders on the left hand side of the console which can do anything the user wants.
They offer direct access to any parameter of settings such as fade times, circle movement diameter or effect speed.
They allow multiple page operation and a virtually unlimited number of simultaneous playback operations, or they can be used as a single channel or a group of channels with independent levels or as real submasters.
Links to the World:
Beside one DMX In- and 2 DMX Outputs, MIDI, Sound and SMPTE the console offers Ethernet to be ready for communication as grandMA 3D or Artnet protocol.
Software - Total Flexibility:
The grandMA micro is based on the grandMA software and thus designed for maximum operational flexibility.
At every level, the desks functionality can bend to the users preferred way of programming, operation and playback.
Cue Timing for example can be done as a general Fade time and Trig point setting.
Alternatively individual settings for each channel, including delay times, will make a single cue look like a complex sequence.
Some operators may use the faders even to adjust single channels and to control playback.
Users who prefer to use touch screen and mouse will find a complete different way, or those who like to use encoders,

The company was founded in 1983 by Michael Adenau (MA) and enjoys strong growth from the very beginning until today. More than 10,000 MA control desks are being used all over the world and MA´s digital dimming systems have become an industry standard. The success accelerated in 1985, when software specialist Ernst Ebrecht joined MA Lighting as a partner. In this period MA introduced the Lightcommander 24 and Lightcommander 48 control desks. When launched in 1992 the MA Scancommander caused a huge stir in the burgeoning world of moving light control. This product established MA Lighting as a leading innovator of lighting control for the global touring and event sector. Leading producers of intelligent lighting showed great interest in MA's new operating philosophy, which radically differed from the historical "dimmer -oriented" control systems of that time. In the spring of 1998 MA showed the world the eagerly awaited grandMA console. This hybrid lighting control console brought a new level of hardware sophistication to the lighting world. The full color touch screens, motorized faders, built in UPS (uninterruptible power supply) and hard drive were only the beginning. The summer of 2000 saw the launch of a host of new products from MA, the grandMA light, the grandMA replay unit and the grandMA offline editor. In the autumn of 2001, the grandMA range will be completed with the introduction of the grandMA ultra-light. The ultra-light has 1,024 channels but retains the main features of a grandMA at a very competitive price. Today, MA Lighting are well known for their technical know-how and have achieved an unique international reputation for its operational philosophy. MA´s award-winning products are extremely reliable and offer cutting-edge solutions for dimming and control. Organizational Structure This story of success is strongly based on the teamwork between MA and Lightpower. Lightpower, located in Paderborn, is handling the international distribution of MA products since 1987. The two companies work very closely together and, through their respective roles, have made each other stronger. Production, and research & development are located in MA´s modern headquarters in Waldbuettelbrunn. For marketing, sales and technical support Lightpower has founded a new subsidiary: MA Lighting International. All of these activities are coordinated in their Paderborn facilities.
