M2PC uses M-PC as software that will run on a Windows PC and can be downloaded here.

M2PC is the complementary control surface to Martin’s M-PC V3 controller software. Featuring the same layout and portable size as the M2GO, the M2PC delivers a professional level of features directly from any PC. Following the philosophy and simplicity of our current controller platform, such as the Martin M1, the Martin M2PC is one of the most powerful and affordable PC-based lighting controllers on the market.
