ZerOS Macro Function

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am new to the club of zerOS and Zero88 Consoles. I wanted to ask if anyone can help with the macro faction on zeOS. I already know the lamp On & Off faction that the console automatically generates, but I don't know what else I can record. Can I record a sequence of functions like an automatic update of the fixtures that are controlled by a sub master fader? Or maybe Automatically record intensities and color to cues and sub master faders?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Nick,

When you press “Automatically Create Macros”, the console creates fixture macros based on the information in the fixture library. 

As well as these, on Solution consoles you can program custom macros. These can either store a sequence of button presses, or store whatever is written in the command line. To store a macro, tap RECORD -> MACRO, and choose an empty macro to store to. You can then choose to store “Keys” or “Commands”. When you have chosen this, anything you press will be recorded. You will see bottom right of the external monitor the console is now storing your macro. 

A common example for a macro, is a macro that stores a blackout cue. To do this, you could type:

1 THRU @ . RECORD ENTER

Then press your Macro MFK, to stop recording the macro. You will then be able to press this macro at any point, to record your blackout.

As you can see there’s a huge range of possibilities of macros you could program, depending on how you want to speed up using the console. 

If you have any questions let me know. 

Edward
