I'm too the point where I need to dig into this Lua stuff. I need to create buttons that change the fade time for my color playback which I think can be done with macros and I also need a way to bulk edit some pixel effects dependinh on the spacing of fixtures in the rig from day to day (I add dummy fixtures to allow the "chasing" effects to look proper).
Based on preliminary digging it seems like the macros are stored outside of the MPC software using software written by @ricdays. It seems like there is no real support for clever macros within the software so does that mean I am limited to running macros only on a PC and I can't do it on an M1?
What if I have a PC join the session with a real console. Then I assume I could somehow run macros yes?
In my search I am met with a lot of conflicts in information that I believe are caused by the rapid development of the macro support which is something that a forum search is terrible at using as an exploration tool but a sticky post kind of addresses...
@Sylvain_Guiblain has some things in a thread around here and I know it involves integration with outside tools but I think it's time to create a dedicated section of the forum with proper stickies and not just lump it in with midi.
I, for one, need a good jumping off point or I will never be able to sink my teeth into this. And I think the best answer is not to link me to the best article but actually create a place where everyone else can use it as a jumping off point.
