Release playbacks macro

Postby fireball40k » 12 Dec 2018, 23:15

I am looking to create a macro that I can fire from a single console button in order to kill four simple playbacks which are stored in the Playbacks window.

A tiny bit of background: This is all related to using audio triggering to control four LED par cans around a drum kit. The problem I have is that when I disengage the audio triggering feature, depending on the state of the various channels, one or more of the LED par cans might be left on. So I need a quick way during the show to shut off all four of those lights.

If I try to record a simple macro, all I end up doing is toggling the four playbacks - so if they were off, they become on after running the macro. I can't see anything in the library that seems suitable, so how do I record one?

Thank you

When recording the macro you could hold down the Avo key while pressing each of the playbacks so they are always killed and not fired. Alternatively in the macro you could press the Release key before each playback. I believe there should be a factory macro to release all playbacks in the Playbacks workspace window which you could use if you don't need any playback within that window to remain active.

Thanks Gregory, using the Avo key worked perfectly for what I needed to achieve.
