Effective 14 March, 2018, Elation Professional has acquired the M-Series range of lighting controllers and software from HARMAN Professional and will now be providing sales and product support. View the announcement from Elation Professional.

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 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 M-series controller platform, the Martin M2PC is one of the most powerful and affordable PC-based lighting controllers on the market.
