A computer programming term, most often applied to lighting consoles. A shortcut key containing a series of keystrokes that are often repeated. Thus time is saved by using a macro rather than retyping every keystroke each time. Each macro is specific to a particular family of consoles. For a collection of macros for the ETC Expression, see ETC Expression Macros on the ETC Forum; as well as this CB thread: http://www.controlbooth.com/forums/lighting/8463-macro-use.html.
