The two macros you provided work fine, but I try to understand them. That's our mission: provide sample Macros so that you learn how to program your ones independently. In the "Move selection down" macro, you use: dtmacro.pt_shortcut("CTRL ;") But why CTRL, when PT only expects ";" from the US keyb...

You don't need to search through the list of menu items if you already know what you want to act on. The syntax for the "PT Menu" Macro Command is pretty easy: Menu>>subMenu>>...>>menuItem You can type it directly in the "Menu Item:" Combo Box. For example, you want to act on the View -> Clip -> Nam...

Re: Problems with Macros (PT, Mac)

Hi Holger, You are correct, Pro Tools is somewhat "strange" about keyboard shortcuts for non-US keyboard layouts. The DTouch "Keyboard Shortcut" Macro Command is meant to send a keyboard shortcut to any app. Since it must be compatible with any language and keyboard layout, it forbids some keys whic...

Re: How to write a Good Macro - Tutorial 1 (Cubase)

Hi DT_support! Thank you for doing this. Would you mind to give us the complete macros in a txt format so we can adjust the macros to our needs and then copy them into the DTouch macro engine?

Step 4

In this step, we are going to fix a problem of our Macro. The "Browse" button on the "Add Audio Track" window changes completely the window look, and more importantly, the "Configuration" option is not available anymore.

Step 3

In this step, we are going to improve our Macro by making it faster. Remember when we added a fixed 500ms delay right after we sent the "Add Track", "Audio" KeyCommand? We are going to make DTouch wait for the new window to appear, thus making the Macro as fast as your computer can: it will be faste...

Step 2

In this step, we are going to improve our Macro by making it somewhat configurable. We built a Macro for adding 8 Tracks, but what about adding 6 Tracks? Or 24? In order to build a good Macro, it's always a good idea to identify some sections that could be re-used in the future to build some derived...
