Key Command Poll

Post by Matthias Quellmann » Fri Jul 26, 2019 1:25 pm

This poll is postponed for now. I will try to come up with a better process to collect the ideas. Thanks

-----------------------------

Since there are a lot of requests for additional key commands I would like to collect all of them in this thread and create a poll to find out about your priorities.

I will create a poll with the first 50 key commands that will be added as a reply to this topic by the community and you will then be able to vote or rate your top ideas.

Here are the rules:

1. One Key Command per comment
2. 10 words max for the description. Keep it simple.
3. Please don't post duplicates.
4. Please focus on your priorities and don't go crazy.
5. Please keep it positive.

As soon as there are 50 comments in here, I will lock the topic, post the link to the poll and you can start voting. Of course the results will be made public in the forum.

[KEYCOMMAND] open the "audio related" channel settings in a midi track.

I don´t know how to explain it properly but the procedure would be that if I a select a midi track and press the keycommand it should open the AUDIO channel settings of the instrument track or rack that is connected to that midi track

Volume up and volume down for the internal metronome, so that I can control the volume with key commands or with a controller other than cc121

Shortcut for "open/close all inserts as group" [KEYCOMMAND]
(currently you can do that with SHIFT+ALT+ STRG + mouse click on the "e" Button...)

Hint: the same shortcut for close this plugin group!

Recording Shortcut for "Pre Roll only when record!" = Recording + Pre Roll. (but after then: the normal Play Mode automatically switched to "play without Pre Roll")

[KEYCOMMAND] Lower or raise value of selected "points" as in automation or tempo track.

So, you select a bunch of automation points and you can change their value without going to the info line. You could also offer different magnitudes

Key Command: Expand/Collapse all folders in Media Browser views.

Example: I'm browsing for VST Effects and many folders are open; I want to quickly collapse them all at once. Alt+Up can be assigned to collapse all folders in the view. All+Down can be assigned to expand all folders.
