Congo Jr. does not natively come with any faders for Master Playbacks, but a Master Playback Wing with 40 faders for Master Playbacks can be docked with the console, standalone but connected to the console via USB, or connected to a computer via USB and used with the Congo Client/Offline-Editor software.
Congo-series consoles support up to 80 Master Playbacks, but Congo Jr can only have one Master Playback Wing. A Universal Fader Wing can be added, providing up to 40 more Master Playbacks.
Congo can support up to 80 Master Playbacks actively loaded, which is equivalent to four pages of 20 Master Playbacks each. Two of the more common configurations are:
From a full-size Congo, it is not possible to change the Master Pages loaded on a Universal Fader Wing. The Universal Fader Wing will always be loaded to Page 3 on the bottom row and Page 4 on the top row.
Changing the pages on a Universal Fader Wing from a Congo Jr. is done via the soft keys. Under Masters, soft keys 6 and 7 control [Page -] and [Page +], respectively. This only changes the pages on a Universal Fader Wing. If a Master Playback Wing is also connected, it will not be affected by this action.
