How do Macros work?

How does the Macro feature work? It’s been in BFD3 forever. I don’t see it described in the manual. I’ve never been able to figure out how to make it do anything. Looks like it could possibly be useful for some kind of performance automation.

I keep thinking I should use them more and I hope one day I’ll get the hang of them as I thought they had real potential at the time.

Here’s a brief guide from Drew



Cool. That’s what I was looking for. I was thinking it could be used to change the dampening and ambient ratios to make a master ‘tightness’ control. Also, to control that new transient design feature to set a master stick tone on cymbals. Automating just a little of that could go a long way during mixdown.
