I believe that Black Widow Ultimate can record macros on the fly. However, they are recorded with a delay in the time you take to press the keystrokes by default. Is it, in fact, possible to do this without delay/on the fly?

Yes, you can delete the delay by going into the driver, going to the Manage Macros tab, your on the fly macro should show in the "Macro Name" drop down as "New Macro1" or so, and you can highlight the delays and click the Delete option above it.

I have the Black widow Ultimate and here's how you do recording on the fly

Function F9

type your key combination that you wish you record

Function F9 again to stop (a flashing indicator will show you it has stopped)

Then hit the key combo that you want it to be recorded on like M1

From looking over the documentation provided by Razer I do not see a way to default the "on the fly" macro recording to remove the delay in between key presses.

You can, however, set the delay in key presses if you prerecord your macros. See pages 5-6 in the user manual for how to edit the delay in your macro buy using the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Configurator that is included with the driver package.

As of software version 1.18 there is an option to do this.

In Razr synapse go to the Macros section where you can edit the macro you recorded. They now have options for Recording Delay, Default the delay to a second value, or No Delay.

Has anyone figured out a hack/workaround for this? I would really like to get rid of the delay for on-the-fly macros - I know that you can do it via the software but it would be nice to now have to have the extra step.
