    Hi Ron,

    This definitely falls into the asking for too much category.

    Is it possible to trigger a Macro under specific situations? I would love the ability to trigger Macros using another button's state.
    • I have an IA button that engages the delay patch on my H9.
    • I have another IA button that engages the Rotary patch on my H9.
    • I have a Carbon Copy delay in loop 5 (for example).
    This is what I'm trying to achieve is (although I'd use this capability to death):
    • If I step on the rotary IA, the rotary patch on the H9 engages (all good).
    • If I now step on the delay IA, the H9 switches to the delay sound and I lose the delay (H9's single patch limitation).
    It would be amazing if I could trigger a Macro that only fired if the rotary IA was active, so that instead of switching patches on the H9, it engaged the loop with the Carbon Copy. Said differently, I'd like an IA button to engage the Carbon Copy delay only if the H9 is active and have that same button engage the H9's internal delay if the H9 was inactive.

    The whole branching thing gets geeky fast, but the power!

    thanks for reading this far!

    You are THE man.

    Alex

    Yeah, I've definitely considered it for years now. I think our last "power user" feature - Set IA - went really well, so that does encourage me to do more. The trick is finding the time to do it, and do it well.

    It's evident that if you did it, it would be done well.

    This would be really cool! I can think of several instances where I'd use this.

    Been asking this also for years.
    This was a feature of the Gordius that was very useful.
    Although the GT is very powerful, there are some things that were better on the Gordius:
    - Macros with no limit
    - Variables
    - Conditional programming
    - Dynamic memory
    - No limit on local pages per preset
    - Inheritance...
