Creating a new macro is simple.  Buttons at upper right let you add folders and macros.  Click the first to add a folder and name it.  Selecting a folder in the list (other than the System Macros folder) enables the Add Macro button (Figure 193).  Click this button to add a new macro entry.

Continue to define the macro by clicking the Record button at the bottom of the panel, and then just go ahead and perform the sequence of operations you wish to include in the macro.  You can use mouse, keyboard, and Control Surface operations when doing so. 


When finished, click the Stop button to complete recording. Test the new macro by clicking the Play button.  You’ll notice that an animated bar in the background of the macro’s entry in the list tracks playback progress.

Of course, you can modify the playback rate using the menu next to the Record button.  You can even set macros to loop using the button at extreme right.
