Using with custom images:
The "Fades Layout Generator" plugin for MA2 will build a layout with macros to set fade times on your executors. The plugin features:
The "RateMaster-Go" plugin for MA2 allows the user to fire multiple executors at once with the push of a single button, and have their fades and delays be in time with the music, essentially making a "Go" button out of a ratemaster.
This plugin monitors your current cue on an executor and runs a timer to count down your time to the next [GO] press on that executor, based on that executor's information in a Timecode recording. Supports multiple timers running at once.

This plugin will install a key(s) in your showfile which, when held, will take you to a previously-defined page. When released, the original page is returned, allowing for quick access to executors you don't want killing your main executor space, such as changeover looks or house lights. Or, you can think of it as a modifier key, like CTRL on a keyboard, so that while you're holding it, your executors have a different function from normal. This can allow you to access more executors on a smaller console.
Rather than variables in macro lines, this version runs on other plugins in the background, so as to allow the key to respond faster than if triggered by a DMX remote, as well as preventing any glitches if more than one is used in the same file and happen to be triggered at the same time.
