Macros: Focusrite Control

So here are a bunch of Macros for Focusrite Control. I use them to turn my Stream Deck into a Monitor Controller. It makes it really fast to switch between monitors or other output sources. You just have to make sure Focusrite Control is open, but you can have the window hidden in the dock and all of these will work.

You may need to modify some of these macros depending on what interface you have, but all you would be doing is changing the name of the output in the apple script part of the macro to match the name of whatever output you want it to control.

For example, if the script says

tell group "Monitor Outputs 1-2"

but you want it to control Loopback 1-2, just change every instance of "Monitor Outputs 1-2" to "Loopback 1-2".

I have also included the Icons I made for Stream Deck. If you use them, just put that folder in your documents folder.

Hey, this is super helpful so big thanks!

However, I'm struggling to get this working for my Scarlett 18i8. Do you have any advice on how to get working? This is the screenshot of my Focusrite Control

I've tried to do the action of Mute Monitor 1-2 via this applescript:

tell application "System Events"
	tell application process "Focusrite Control"
		click button "Mute" of group "Monitor Outputs 1-2" of group "Outputs" of window "Focusrite Control"
	end tell
	tell process "Focusrite Control"
			-- Navigate to the button based on the provided path
			set theButton to button "Mute" of group "Monitor Outputs 1-2" of group "Outputs" of window "Focusrite Control"
			set buttonState to value of theButton
			-- Return the value of the button
			return buttonState
		on error errMsg
			return "Error: " & errMsg
		end try
	end tell
end tell

However, when running this through a shortcut nothing gets executed in Focusrite.

Nevermind. Solved this myself by reinstalling Focusrite Control. Thanks for the great macros!
