    Master Playback Wing​


    Master Playback Wing


    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.

      • Go/Pause

      • Tap
      • Execute Attributes

    • All Masters on a Master Playback Wing have the same configurable properties of those found elsewhere in Congo, be it on a Universal Fader Wing or on a full-size Congo.
    • A rotary switch allows the console to be used in three different configurations:
      • Channels Only (every fader corresponds to an individual channel and Page +/- buttons are used to flip through the banks of channels.
      • Masters (every fader is a Master Playback -- groups, sequences, macros, presets, effects, palettes, and all sorts of things can be assigned to these)
      • Jam (a mode that uses the Patch, Group, and Channel Database information to auto-generate content onto the faders for busking)
    • 5 pages of Direct Selects are available directly via the five silver buttons at the top left of the wing.

    Page Behavior

    Congo

    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.

    Congo Jr.

    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.
