    Probably a beginner question/thoughts here but I have been searching to no avail -

    I would like to program my cue list where a cue lasts X amount of beats - For example, a cue with all my lights colored blue for the intro of a song, which lasts 32 beats, and if the song were 120 BPM, this would be 16 seconds.

    Is there a way to throw this idea into the programmer so I can then create a macro for such? This is a simple example, and I know the math would get more complicated ie. 4 beats at 128 BPM would be 1.875 seconds, so I would like to create a macro that asks "# of Beats" for user input and "Song BPM" for user input, then updates the TrigTime of the queue accordingly. Then when hitting Go on first cue in list, it will play back in the same organization as the song I am coding to, and much quicker/intuitive than working with seconds etc.

    I feel this would make timecoding a breeze for gridded EDM songs that I have liked working on, rather than working in seconds and adjusting on the timecode view, or having to make many markers in Reaper and copy over.

    Any help here or other ideas of how to accomplish would be much appreciated! ^^
