Tip : Solo switching tracks magic

Discovered this a few minutes ago and love it.

1 - Select several tracks
2 - Solo one or more of the selected tracks
3 - Hit S on your keyboard, solo will be switched with the previously muted tracks.

Bloody handy.

Use Quickeys/Keyboard Maestro/Autohotkey to enhance Cubase

A couple people asked about his so here you go-

Cubase macros do not test for conditions. So I use a couple apps that fill in the blanks.

Quickeys, and to a lesser extent Keyboard Maestro can see windows and has functions like "Wait for Window with name containing" and "If frontmost window is [named | type]" etc. (Keyboard Maestro can't see windows set to Always-on-Top)

Edit: Also, for PC there is AutoHotkey, arguably even more powerful.

For example, the current issue where you have to hit f3 twice to get focus to a mix console that is already open, can be handled by Quickeys, which works on both WIndows and Mac. I never used it on Windows, so I don't know whether this works there, but I would suppose it does.

Keyboard Maestro is cheaper and Mac only, and does almost everything QK does, plus it can send midi data to Cubase.

I use it as a Generic Remote, and have key commands that solo. select, mute and listen channels directly from the computer keyboard without having to manually interact with the Mix Console.

Attached is a Quickeys macro that makes F3 open Mix Console 1, and if it's already open it brings it to the front.

I'm happy to share the other macros I've made, let me know... Also, on Windows you have the amazing AutoHotkey, that does much of this and is free.

Both apps have a demo you can download.

Re: INLINE: Settings and INLINE: Key Commands

They're for mediabay.

Steinberg is weak on documentation, no doubt.

Re: Use Quickeys/Keyboard Maestro to enhance/fix various iss

This is the way I get Cubase to load the most recent project. It's assuming that Cubase is already running.

Create a macro in Keyboard Maestro, add Execute AppleScript event, and fill in this code:

tell application "System Events"
tell application process "Cubase"
click menu item 1 of menu "Recent Projects" of menu item "Recent Projects" of menu "File" of menu bar item "File" of menu bar 1
end tell
end tell
You can then assign it a global keyboard shortcut. I assign it Cmd+Shift+O which is Pro Tool's open recent command.

Re: KeyCommand Utility - Now Testing Mac Support

skillet wrote:Yes I used the updated file in the first post and used your Automator action and updated it for Cubase 7.5 and then got the results posted. Is there another "genCommands.pl" I should be using?

Can you try these? They are what I am using now.

Re: How to cut the beginning of an event?

If you're in the sample editor sand want to remove a section you can always use the range tool and then hit 'silence' that will do what you want.


I don't use the sample editor for removing sections, I zoom in in the project and use the range tool and the delete key.
