Does Razer software support recording/playing complex and long macros?

    Hi All,

    I would like to be able to record a macros, which logs all my actions precisely for at least 1 minute or so. This includes:
    1. recording delays between key presses.
    2. recording duration of holding a key (keydown).
    3. recording pressing and holding multiple keys (one of the scenarios is: two keys are pressed and hold (keydown), at the same time one more key is pressed (keydown+keyup) with delays).

    So can Razer keyboards/software help me with the above? If yes, which keyboard you would recommend for this?

    Thank you in advance!

    Yeah with the Razer Synapse software, you are able to record macros. I'm not exactly sure of the length, but I have done a few that take 10-20 seconds to execute, so it can probably do a whole minute of macros, but not 100% sure on that. And yeah it should be able to correctly catch keydowns and keyups and timings and everything like that. I would recommend the Razer Blackwidow keyboards. They are mechanical, and feel very nice, and awesome quality so they will last you a long time, and some of them even have dedicated macro buttons, so you might want to pick up one of those ones if you are going to have a decent amount of macros.
    Konstantin007 and Vaypron like this.

    Thanks for the prompt response, Katana! Your post sounds encouraging. I will wait a little bit more for possible input from others and then try my luck with some Razer Blackwidow keyboard :)

    Awesome! I have 2 blackwidows myself. one with cherry blues, and another with razer oranges. And I love them both. I think you will like them a lot if you decide to pick one up. Just curious...what are your macros for that they need to be so long?

    If I tell you, I will have to kill you. Just kidding :) Well, long story short - I'm trying to record a walkthrough of some difficult parts in one platformer game, which requires a lot of concentration and precise timings, and then replay that parts using a macros. And please, don't ask me why on earth anybody would need to do something like that :)
