I am the tech director for a small church and like many we like to use the USB record function to record our sermons. We also have trouble with volunteer techs that are forgetful and fail to start the recording on time.

It is pretty easy on a Mac to write an applescript that could trigger the recording with a midi (or TCP/IP) message and that script could be triggered at certain times. Also many of the presentation software packages on the market will send Midi messages, and so we can trigger the recording to start when a certain slide is fired (an event which happens much more reliably).

I would suggest that when the console receives a “record” message that it will start recording with the default filename that it usually generates.

It would also be nice if the recording function could be assigned to a softkey so it is always at hand.
