Audio

Post by ggmanestraki »

Commands: Audio

• Adjust Fades to Range (Default Key A)
Function: Adjusts the Fades of the event to the limits of the range.
If you have an audio event that starts at 1 and ends at 9, but the “good part” is between 4 and 8, you take your range tool, select from 4 to 8 and hit A. What happens then is: A fade in is created from 1 to 4, and a fade out from 8 to 9.
Keyworthiness: 10/10

• Auto-Grid (Default Key Shift Q)
Function: In Sample Editor, under Definition, there exists Auto Adjust. That’s what the key command does.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending on workflow

• Bounce Selection
Function: Bounces Selection. Works with range selection, perfect for making heavily cut, crossfaded, stitched parts, into a clean event again.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending on workflow

• Close Gaps
Function: Time stretches the selected event so that it extends up to the next event.
We have an event that starts on 1, ends on 2. We have another event that starts on 6. If we select the first event and fire the key command, it will be stretched so that it ends on 6.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending on workflow

• Close Gaps (Crossfade)
Function: Not exactly sure. It seems that when using events that have been cut or resized, using this function closes the gaps by using parts from the whole audio file (before cutting or resizing the event) and applies a crossfade between the two events, if the original length of the file allows for it.
Keyworthiness: ?/10

• Constrain Delay Compensation
Function: Deactivates latency-inducing plugins.
Keyworthiness: 2/10 (unless button not present on any toolbar)

• Convert Tracks: Mono to Multi-Channel
Function: Brings up a window from which the user can convert tracks from mono to other multi-channel configurations.
Keyworthiness: inf./10 (I cannot find the function in any menu it seems. Key command only?)

• Convert Tracks: Multi-Channel to Mono
Function: Brings up a window from which the user can convert tracks from multi-channel configurations to mono tracks.
Keyworthiness: inf./10 (I cannot find the function in any menu it seems. Key command only?)

• Create Sampler Track
Function: Having selected an audio event, hitting the key command creates a sampler track with the selected event loaded into the sampler.
Keyworthiness: 3/10 depending on workflow (last item in audio menu, easy to find)

• Crossfade (Default Key X)
Function: Creates a crossfade between two audio events.
Keyworthiness: 10/10

• Decrement Event Volume (Default Key Ctrl -)
Function: Lowers volume of the selected event by 1dB.
Keyworthiness: 5/10

• Decrement Fade-In Length
Function: Moves fade in anchor to the left, in steps relatively proportional to the grid setting.
Keyworthiness: 5/10

• Decrement Fade-Out Length
Function: Moves fade out anchor to the right, in steps relatively proportional to the grid setting.
Keyworthiness: 5/10

• Delete Overlaps
Function: When two or more events overlap, this command deletes what’s underneath the overlapping area. Tip: If this command seems to delete part of the wrong event, You can use U to uncover the event that is being overlapped.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending

• Detect Silence
Function: Brings up the detect silence window, where we can easily chop up an event stripping silence in between program material.
Keyworthiness: 6+/10 (hidden two-deep in Audio Menu)

• Disable/Enable Track
Function: As it says. A toggle to disable/enable the selected track.
Keyworthiness: 4-/10 (easily accessible on right click menu)

Function: When you select 4 audio events and glue them together, you get a part. This command allows you to dissolve the part, and go back to having 4 audio events.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 (Audio menu)

• Event or Range as Region
Function: Creates Regions (available in the Sample Editor), from a selection of events, or a range.
Keyworthiness: 6+/10 depending (under Audio>Advanced)

• Events from Regions

Function: When you have an audio event selected, this command will apply a fade-in that finishes at the position of the project cursor.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 (Audio menu)

• Fade Out to Cursor
Function: When you have an audio event selected, this command will apply a fade-out that starts at the position of the project cursor.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 (Audio menu)

• Find Selected in Pool
Function: As it says. You select an event, give the command, and then the Pool window pops up, with the respective file highlighted.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 (Audio menu)

Keyworthiness: 7/10 depending (easily found second from last in Audio menu, but I find I use flip polarities in bursts, so…)

• Minimize File
Function: In pool, you can use this command to minimize the audio file to what the event shows. (The file itself may be longer, due to audio pre-record)
Keyworthiness: 3/10 (in pool, right click on the file, then easily found in the menu OR in Media menu)

• Open Fade Editors
Function: When you have an event that has fades applied to it, issuing the command will bring up the fade editors. Note: The fade editors open on top of each other. You see the fade-out editor, and then when you finish adjusting and close the window, the fade-in editor awaits just beneath the one you closed.
Keyworthiness: 0/10 if used alone, 5/10 if used with Increment/Decrement Fade In/Out (It is not possible to enter new points with the keyboard in the Fade Editor)

• Remove Extension from Selected Events
Function: Not sure. Probably removes ARA extensions from the selected events?
Keyworthiness: ?/10

• Remove Fades
Function: Removes fades from selected events
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending

• Remove Volume Curve
Function: If you take your draw tool and draw on an event, you get a volume curve (or envelope). This command allows you to remove it.
Keyworthiness: 3+/10 depending (third from last in Audio menu)

• Set Definition From Tempo
Function: Brings up the Set Definition From Tempo, window, in which you can apply the current Tempo to the event in the project, or the relevant file itself, and switch it to musical mode, so that you can then time stretch to Bars and Beats.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending (hidden two deep in Audio>Advanced)

• Set Tempo From Event
Function: Sets the global (project) tempo from a selected event. You need to use the locators to define the wanted length.
Example: In a new project, record 9 claps. (in time. Any time) Crop the event so that it starts right at clap 1, and ends right before clap 9. We now have 2 measures of 4/4. Park the event to the start. Then set the left locator to 1, and the right locator to 3. Issue the command. Confirm. Notice how the tempo has changed so that the claps now fall on the beats.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending (hidden two deep in Audio>Advanced)

• Snap Point to Cursor
Function: Issuing the command will move the Snap Point of the Event to where the project cursor currently is.
Keyworthiness: 8+/10 depending (found in the middle of Audio menu)

• Stretch to Project Tempo
Function: Stretches event to project Tempo
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending (hidden two deep in Audio>Advanced)

• To Origin
Function: Moves event to Origin (Note: Origin Time for the audio file can be found in the Pool window)
Keyworthiness: inf.(?)/10 (cannot seem to find it anywhere in Cubase. Key command only?)

• Update Origin
Function: Updates the event’s Origin Time after you have moved it.
Keyworthiness: 3+/10 (Found in Audio menu)

 Notes: Minimize Audio is found in Media and not in Audio as expected.
Origin Times take into account Audio Pre-Record Seconds preference. If you have 1 second pre-record, and you have a 4/4 120 M.M. project, starting a recording at measure 2 will have the file show an origin of 1.3.1.0 (1 second is 1 beat)

Beat Designer - Channel & Track Visibility - Channel Settings

Post by ggmanestraki »

Commands: Beat Designer

All commands control the MIDI Insert Plug-in “Beat Designer”, and allow transforming Beat Designer’s patterns into MIDI parts.

• Fill Loop with Pattern
Function: If you have a pattern ready in the Beat Designer, this command will paste the pattern to the midi track over and over until it fills the space between the left and right locators.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10

• Insert Pattern at Cursor
Function: As it says. Inserts the pattern at the cursor’s position.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10

• Insert Pattern at Left Locator
Function: As it says. Inserts the pattern at the Left Locator.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10

• Insert Subbank at Cursor
Function: Those button labels called “1”, “2”, “3” and “4” over the piano keys are subbanks. Each subbank can contain up to 12 patterns, on each piano key. When you give this command, the patterns contained within the pattern will be pasted one after the other at the cursor’s position. Note: If you have 3 patterns, one on key C, one on key F, one on Key Bb, they will still be pasted one after the other, with no gap between them.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10

• Insert Subbank at Left Locator
Function: Those button labels called “1”, “2”, “3” and “4” over the piano keys are subbanks. Each subbank can contain up to 12 patterns, on each piano key. When you give this command, the patterns contained within the pattern will be pasted one after the other at the left locator. Note: If you have 3 patterns, one on key C, one on key F, one on Key Bb, they will still be pasted one after the other, with no gap between them.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10

 Notes: Right Clicking anywhere within the Beat Designer’s window will allow you to select “Always on Top”.

Commands: Channel & Track Visibility

 Notes: Activating Sync Project and MixConsole will allow visibility changes done to the mixer apply to the project, and vice versa. This is very important, because some visibility agents that are otherwise exclusive to the project window OR the mixconsole, become readily available for both!

• Agents: Hide Muted Tracks
Function: Hides muted tracks.
Keyworthiness: 8/10

• Agents: Hide Selected Channels/Tracks
Function: As it says.
Keyworthiness: 8/10

• Agents: Redo Visibility Change

Keyworthiness: 9/10

• Agents: Show All Channels/Tracks
Function: As it says.
Keyworthiness: 5+10 depending (easily accessible both in the project window and the mixconsole)

• Agents: Show Channels that are Connected to the First Selected Channel
Function: Shows all the channels that are connected to the first selected channel. A powerful agent. Example: If you select an effects return channel and give the command, all channels will vanish except those that are connected to the effect return in any way, be it direct routing or sends. Then use visibility undo to return to the previous visibility status.
Keyworthiness: 10/10

• Agents: Show Channels/Tracks with Data
Function: As it says. Shows only Channels/Tracks that contain data. Every other channel/track is hidden from view. Note: An empty midi part still counts as data.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending (easily accessible both in the project window and the mixconsole)

• Agents: Show Channels/Tracks with Data at the Cursor Position
Function: As it says. Shows only Channels/Tracks that contain data at the cursor’s position. Every other channel/track is hidden from view. Note: An empty midi part still counts as data.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending (easily accessible both in the project window and the mixconsole)

• Agents: Show Channels/Tracks with Data between the Locators
Function: As it says. Shows only Channels/Tracks that contain data between the Locators. Every other channel/track is hidden from view. Note: An empty midi part still counts as data.
Keyworthiness: 5+/10 depending (easily accessible both in the project window and the mixconsole)

• Agents: Show Only Selected Channels/Tracks
Function: As it says.
Keyworthiness: 8+/10 depending (easily accessible both in the project window and the mixconsole)

• Agents: Show Tracks with Selected Events
Function: As it says. When you have selected a bunch of events and give the command, only the tracks with the selected events will be shown, all others will be hidden.
Keyworthiness: 8+/10 depending (easily accessible in the project window)

• Agents: Undo Visibility Change
Function: As it says. If you have applied a visibility agent and you give the command, it takes you back to the previous visibility status.
Keyworthiness: 10/10

• Create Visibility Configuration
Function: Creates a new visibility Configuration. Note & Tip: The command is common for both the project window, and the mixconsole. However, the window that has focus will receive the command, and the resulting visibility configuration will be for that window. But, with Sync Project & Mixconsole Visibility enabled, and some careful focus shifts, we can double the visibility configurations to 16.
Example: Focus to the project window. Activate Sync Project & Mixconsole. Manually hide some channels from the visibility tab. Then give the command. Name the configuration “1”. Observe, that visibility configuration “1” is available for the project window. Now switch to the mixconsole and observe that the visibility configuration has been applied! But, the mixconsole’s visibility configurations are still empty. Make some manual visibility changes in mixcosole and give the command. The resulting visibility is for the mixconsole, but Sync Project & Mixconsole allows it to apply to the project as well. This way, we can have 8 configurations for the project window, and 8 for the mixconsole.
Keyworthiness: 9/10 depending (if not a fan of Sync Project & MixConsole, avoid!)

• Sync Visibility of Project and MixConsole: On/Off
Function: This command will switch on and off the synchronization between the visibility of the Project window and the MixConsole. While this is on, any visibility changes made on the project window will apply to the mixconsole, and vice versa.
Keyworthines: 2/10 (easily accessible, project window must have focus for the command to work)

• Update Visibility Configuration
Function: This command will “save”, and overwrite your currently selected visibility configuration. Disambiguation: Load a configuration, and then make some changes (e.g. Hide some channels). Notice the asterisk next to the number. This means the configuration has been changed from what it is. If you wish to save those changes to your configuration, give the command. Your configuration will now be updated to include the changes, and the asterisk will be gone.
Keyworthiness:7+/10 (caution is advised, works instantly, and the command is common for both the project and the mixconsole depending on which window has focus)

• Visibility Configuration 1-8 (Default Keys for 1-4 Ctrl Alt 1-4)
Function: Instantly recalls the configuration with the corresponding number from 1 to 8.
Keyworthiness: 10/10 (remember that the window that has focus receives the command, be it the project window or the mixconsole window)

 Tip: If working with Sync Project & MixConsole, I find it better to make configurations “native” to the target window. For example, in the project window I wouldn’t waste a configuration that would show me just channels 1, 4, 6, 9 and Group 1, their destination. That’s because I could easily select Group 1 in the Mixconsole, then issue the command Show Channels connected to the First Selected Channel, and have the Project window mirror the visibility change since I have Sync Project & MixConsole active. Likewise, it would feel clumsy to me to make a visibility configuration in the MixConsonole for Tracks with Data between the Locators, since I would have far better visual feedback from the cursor window, and the MixConsole would mirror that visibility change regardless, since, again, I have Sync Project & Mixconsole active.

Commands: Channel Settings

• Show/Hide Direct Routing
Function: As it says. Shows/Hides the side panel that contains the direct outputs routing.
Keyworthiness: 0/10 (easily accessible in Set up Window Layout of the Channel Settings window)

• Show/Hide Output Chain
Function: As it says. Shows/Hides the chain of outputs. If the channel goes through a group 1, and then this group 1 goes to group A, and then group A goes to the Master, it will reveal those 3 faders; group 1, group A, Master.
Keyworthiness: 0/10 (easily accessible in Set up Window Layout of the Channel Settings window)

 Notes: It is sad that channel settings do not have any more key commands. Even a simple “Insert Effect on Next Free Slot”, or “Activate Send 1-8” would go a long way. No way to control even the pre section, no way to even push the “phase” button. This section definitely needs some love.

 Observation: The window is divided in three zones. Tab will switch focus to the first element of each zone. However, Show Next Tab/Show Previous Tab commands do not work in this window, making it impossible to switch from Inserts to Strip in the left zone, for example, or from Channel Strip to Equalizer in the middle one.

 Keyboard navigation: When you have the whole section in focus, for example a red rectangle around the whole inserts rack, press DOWN. From there, you can go to the next slot with SHIFT LEFT/ SHIFT RIGHT. You can press ALT ENTER to “Activate” the selected slot. (For inserts, the plug-ins list appears, to make a selection. For sends, the Routing Destination list appears.) ALT A bypasses the focused slot. ENTER brings up the plug-in window for inserts, allows to change the send level for sends. That’s all nice and dandy, but it’s neither intuitive, nor efficient.

Chords

Post by ggmanestraki »

Commands: Chords
  • Assign Voices to Notes
Function: When you select a chord, this command will assign voices to the notes, depending on the number of voices.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Project > Chord Track)
Example: Insert four notes in the Key Editor. Select them. Give the command. Notice how each note has been assigned a voice when you select them: Bass, Tenor, Alto, Soprano.
Note: This command will also work for arpeggios. (This means that if you insert four notes, C3 at 1.1,E3 at 1.2, G3 at 1.3, and C4 at 1.4, and then select them and give the command, they will still get Bass, Tenor, Alto, Soprano.)
Note: You need at least 3 notes for a chord. If you try with one note, it will be assigned the voice Bass 2. A second note will get Bass. With 3 notes, the chord is assigned as Soprano, Alto, Tenor starting from top to bottom."

  • Chord Editing - Add to Chord Track
Function: When you select a chord, this command will create a Chord Track (if it doesn't exist yet) and add the chord to the Chord Track.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily accessible from Chord Editing inspector panel)
Note: Any selection of notes with work with the command, and the resulting voicing will be the sum of this selection.
Example: Insert two chords. At 1.1 have C3, E3, G3, B3. At 1.3 have D3, F3, A3. Then select the first chord and give the command. The Chord Track shows Cmaj7. Select the second chord and give the command. The Chord Track shows Dmin. Now select both chords at once and give the command. The Chord Track shows Cmaj7/9/11/13."

  • Chord Editing - Drop 2
Function: When you select a chord and give this command, the note second from the top will be transposed one octave down.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily accessible from Chord Editing inspector panel)

  • Chord Editing - Drop 2 and 4
Function: When you select a chord and give this command, the note second from the top, and the note fourth from the top, will be transposed one octave down.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily accessible from Chord Editing inspector panel)

  • Chord Editing - Drop 3
Function: When you select a chord and give this command, the note third from the top will be transposed one octave down.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily accessible from Chord Editing inspector panel)

  • Chord Editing - Inversions: Move Down
Function: When you select a chord and give this command, the top note will be transposed one octave down.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily accessible from Chord Editing inspector panel)
Note: A bit misleading the name of this key command. I thought move down would take me from a 2nd inversion to 1st inversion, automatically bringing the 3rd of the chord to the bass (and sending up the 5th from the bass to the inner voices). The correct description is in the tooltip of the command, at Inspector's Chord Editing > Inversions. ""Move highest note to bottom"".
Note: This command will avoid creating unisons. So, if you have a chord C3, E3, G3, C4 and give the command, the C4 will be taken two octaves down, to C2, in order to avoid C3. Of course, if you then gave the command again, the G3 would end up at G1, under the new C2."

  • Chord Editing - Inversions: Move Up
Function: When you select a chord and give this command, the bottom note will be transposed one octave up.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily accessible from Chord Editing inspector panel)
Note: A bit misleading the name of this key command. I thought move up would take me from a 1st inversion to 2nd inversion, automatically bringing the 5th of the chord to the bass (and sending up the 3rd from the bass to the inner voices). The correct description is in the tooltip of the command, at Inspector's Chord Editing > Inversions. ""Move lowest note to top"".
Note: This command will avoid creating unisons. So, if you have a chord C3, E3, G3, C4 and give the command, the C3 will be taken two octaves up, to C5, in order to avoid C4. Of course, if you then gave the command again, the E3 would end up at E5, over the new C5."

  • Chord Editing - Match with Chord Track
Function: When you select a chord and give this command, it will be transformed to match the voicing shown at the Chord Track
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily accessible from Chord Editing inspector panel)
Note: This command doesn't seem to work with multiple chords.
Example: We have a chord track with one chord per bar. The chords are: Cmaj7, Fmaj7, Dmin7, G7. If we draw one four note chord (or any four notes) in bar one, and then copy over to the next three, select them all and give the command, nothing happens. But, if we select each chord on its own, it works."

  • Chord Pads Setup…
Function: Brings up the Chord Pads setup window.
Keyworthiness: 5 (two clicks from the Lower Zone Tabs, or in Project > Chord Pads)

  • Chords to MIDI
Function:When you have a track selected (Instrument, MIDI), giving this command will realize the chord track. Plainly said, it will create a midi part, and fill it with the right notes, as defined in the Chord Track. Chord Track says Cmaj7, midi track will have C, E, G, B.
Keyworthiness: 5 (In Project > Chord Track)
Note: Works from project window, when a track (MIDI, Instrument) is selected.
When used, the track will have its ""Follow Chord Track"" enabled and switched to Voicings."

  • Create Chord Symbols
Function: This command will detect the chords of the selected tracks, and insert them to the Chord Track
Keyworthiness: 5 (In Project > Chord Track)
Note: This command works according to selection. If you have a track with Am, G, select it and give the command, the Chord Track will then have exactly Am, G. But, if you add another track and proceed to have a note F for the duration of Am, G, and then select both tracks and give the command, you'll see the Chord Track change to Fmaj7, G7.

  • Map to Chord Track
Function: This command will match a selection of parts or events to the Chord Track.
Keyworthiness: 5 (In Project > Chord Track)

  • Show/Hide Chord Pads
Ctrl Shift C
Function: This command will show/hide the Chord Pads section in the Lower Zone
5 (In Project > Chord Pads)

Control Room

Post by ggmanestraki »

Sorry for the avalanche of What it says, but most commands of this category are self-explanatory. I chose to keep the field for later revising, if needed.

Direct Offline Processing

Post by ggmanestraki »

If working extensively with DOP, maybe it's worth it to assign a key command preset for all the commands under this section. (If they work, most of them currently don't)

  • Acoustic Feedback On/Off
Function: Toggles Acoustic Feedback On/Off. When on, selecting or inserting a single event will make sound. When off, the instrument will not play when you insert new notes, or select them. It will only make a sound when you press play from the transport
Keyworthiness: 3

  • Activate Next Part
Function: When you have multiple Parts selected, all are visible in the editor, but the active part, the one that is being edited, is in the foreground, while the inactive ones stay grayed out in the background. This command will allow you to activate the next part, and bring it to the foreground.
Keyworthiness: 7

  • Activate Previous Part
Function: When you have multiple Parts selected, all are visible in the editor, but the active part, the one that is being edited, is in the foreground, while the inactive ones stay grayed out in the background. This command will allow you to activate the previous part, and bring it to the foreground.
Keyworthiness: 7

  • Activate/Deactivate Focused Object
Default: Alt A
Function: Multifunctional key. Activates/Deactivates whatever can be activated/deactivated when it's focused.
Keyworthiness: 10
Note: Works on headers (Inserts, Sends, EQ, Strip) to bypass them. Works on specific controls that have focus, e.g. an equalizer band. I suspect there are a million other places where this works, but getting keyboard focus to test it out is tough.

  • Apply Click Pattern to Equal Signatures
Function: This command will apply your click pattern to the same signature. If you have many instances of the same time signature (e.g. 3/4, you can modify the click for one of those 3/4 changes, and then give the command to have the click pattern apply to all 3/4 changes.
Keyworthiness: 7 easily accessible from the Signature Track's arrow button

  • Auto Select Events under Cursor
Function: When you give this command, the Preference Auto Select Events under Cursor is Activated/Deactivated. This command will not select events by itself.
Keyworthiness: 4
Note: This is a preference switch command, not a select events command.

  • Auto-Scroll On/Off
Default: F
Function: Activates/Deactivates automatic scroll of the project window.
Keyworthiness: 10

  • Automation Follows Events
Function: Activates/Deactivates the preference Automation Follows Events. When Activated, if you move an event around, its automation (if it exists) will follow the event around too.
Keyworthiness: 4
Note: This is a preference switch command.

  • Clean Up Lanes
Function: This command will re-arrange events on lanes and remove lanes, so that that the minimum required amount of lanes are kept for the events on a lane not to overlap.
Keyworthiness: 5 (found by right clicking on audio track)

  • Click Pattern to Default
Function: This command will remove all custom metronome patterns, and reset them to the default patterns.
Keyworthiness: 3 (found in Signature Track's arrow menu)
Note: In Signature Track's arrow menu, it is Reset Click Patterns to Default.

  • Convert to Real Copy
Function: When we have a shared copy selected, this command will convert it to a Real Copy.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Found in Edit > Functions)
Note: The name of the command could be "Convert Shared Copy to Real Copy" for better clarity.

  • Copy
Default: Ctrl C
Function: Copies!
Keyworthiness: 10

  • Copy A <-> B Setting
Function: Copies setting A to setting B, and copies setting B to setting A.
Keyworthiness: 3
Only works for Channel Settings > Equalizer. What a pity.

  • Copy Click Pattern to Clipboard
Function: As it says. Copies the Click Pattern to Clipboard, so that later you can Paste to Selected Signatures
Keyworthiness: 3 (Found in the Signature Track's arrow menu)

  • Create Tracks from Lanes
Function: As it says. Creates tracks from the existing lanes of an audio track.
Keyworthiness: 3 (found by right clicking on an audio track)

  • Crop Range
Function: Crops the events to the selected range.
Keyworthiness: 10 (I love it)

  • Cut
Default: Ctrl X
Function: Removes selection, copies it to the clipboard for later pasting.
Keyworthiness: 10

  • Cut Head
Function: Select part of an event with the range tool. Give the command. Observe how "the head" (what's left of the starting point of the range) is removed.
Keyworthiness: 10 (a good command)
This isn't a Cut and then paste command. It's actually a macro that Splits at the start of the range selection, and then deletes the event on the left side of the split.

  • Cut Tail
Function: Select part of an event with the range tool. Give the command. Observe how "the tail" (what's right of the ending point of the range) is removed.
Keyworthiness: 10 (a good command)
This isn't a Cut and then paste command. It's actually a macro that Splits at the end of the range selection, and then deletes the event on the right side of the split.

  • Cut Time

Re: An apple a day... or was it key command?

Post by greggybud »

I'm not sure I understand "keyworthiness?"

Also...some key commands only function when a particular window is in focus. Would this be something valuable to add?

And finally, since you are being quite detailed, maybe a list of missing key commands?

Ah, keyworthiness :mrgreen: . It's just a rating (MY haphazard rating) of how much a key command is worth it to be assigned a key in a default key commands preset. Some key commands are GREAT for building macros, but it wouldn't be worth it to sacrifice a keyboard key to assign them on. This rating reflects this. A VERY useful key command (in my humble opinion) will get a 10. Most default key commands get a 10, unless if they don't work. If a key command doesn't work, it will get a 0.

If a key command doesn't do anything, or does something that is not immediately visible (after reading the manual and trying in project, mixconsole, editors), it gets a "?". You can search for these with Ctrl F and chip in if you know what it does. It will be much appreciated!

It goes without saying that one man's gold is another man's trash. What seems awesome to me might be trivial to you. Don't give this keyworthiness rating much thought. Consider it a "worth checking out" rating.
Also...some key commands only function when a particular window is in focus. Would this be something valuable to add?
Of course it would be valuable! For key commands that I expected them to work somewhere and they didn't, I comment about it in the notes section of each key command. But testing all key commands in all windows is... I don't know where to start. Maybe on a second pass I could look into it.
And finally, since you are being quite detailed, maybe a list of missing key commands?
In cases where this lack is obvious, for example in Edit Channel Settings, I leave a comment/note. However, since finding ALL missing key commands will require a full scan of all functions in all windows and editors, I think it's too difficult for me alone to do accurately and reliably. More sets of eyes are needed!

Overall, I would like it if:
1) I could somehow find an easy way to link to the manual for each key command. (but not have to do it again next update :lol: )
2) Find a way to make a 2007 excel (don't laugh please) into an HTML(?) - SOMETHING - that will maintain the collapse/expand tree structure, and the dynamic excel filter of contemporary versions (I don't have it in 2007), where you type in a cell and the relevant entries are shown as you type, letter by letter. I think this would make for a nice key command searcher, with multiple search fields, either by name, keys assigned, etc etc...

When I'm done, I'll upload the excel file in the original post for everyone to do as they see fit with it.

Thank you for your interest!

Focus - HeadTracking - Hitpoints - Hub - Import

Post by ggmanestraki »

Focus

Through trial and error, aid from assigned navigation keys, and sheer luck, you can even (mostly) (somewhat) control mixconsole racks, channel settings page, and others.

  • Back
Function: Moves focus to the previous focus point?
Keyworthiness: ?

  • Confirm
Default: Alt Return
Function: Multifunctional key. At times loads plug-ins, other times expands tabs, other times activates sends. It's a key of action! Do I know what it does exactly? No.
Keyworthiness: 10

  • Escape
Function: Lose focus?
Keyworthiness: ?

  • Forward
Function: Moves focus to the next focus point?
Keyworthiness: ?



HeadTracking


  • Head Tracking
Function: Brings up the Head Tracking panel.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Easily accessible in Project menu)



Hitpoints

All the commands work with multiple selections (1 tool). If a range is selected (2 tool), hitpoint processing will apply to the whole event caught in the range, and not just the range.


  • Calculate
Function: Allows you to manually create Hitpoints for the selected event(s). (If Preferences>Editing>Audio>Enable Automatic Hitpoint Detection is unticked)
Keyworthiness: 7

  • Create Audio Slices from Hitpoints
Function: Slices up the selected event(s) at their hitpoints, and bundles all those new events (slices) into a part.
Keyworthiness: 7

  • Create Markers from Hitpoints
Function: As it says. This command will create a marker for each hitpoint encountered.
Keyworthiness: 7
When we use this command on multiple tracks and events, the numbering of the markers goes like this: Marker 1 will be the first hitpoint of the first event selected. Marker x will be the last hitpoint of the last event selected on the same track. Marker x+1 will be the first hitpoint of the first event selected on the second track etc. etc.. So when the whole procedure completes, you will see marker numbers all over the place. To state it in another way, the markers are not sorted according to global project time. If you wish them to appear "in order", use "Functions>Reassign Position Marker IDs" in the Markers window (Ctrl M)

  • Divide Audio Events at Hitpoints
Function: This will take the scissors to the events, and split them at the hitpoints' positions.
Keyworthiness: 7

  • Remove Hitpoints
Function: If you are not happy with the detected hitpoints (automatically detected or otherwise) you can use this command to remove them all. Will also work with multiple selections.
Keyworthiness: 7



Hub


  • Hub
Function: Brings up the Hub panel.
Keyworthiness: 5



Import


  • AAF...
Function: Brings up the Import AAF window, in order to choose the file.
Keyworthiness: 4

  • OMF...
Function: Brings up the Import OMF window, in order to choose the file.
Keyworthiness: 4

Inspector - Macro - Marker

Post by ggmanestraki »

Inspector

Instrument Tracks have problems with a few of these commands, probably due to the "dual" setup present on their inspector. Not all Sections are on the same level, causing "open next/previous" to fail. "Inserts" could be MIDI inserts or channel inserts. More refinement is required, and keycommands for all the sections.


  • Open Next Section
Function: Opens the next Inspector Section. You can cycle through all of them with this command.
Keyworthiness: 5
If you have Sections pinned, the command will skip to the next unpinned section and open that one instead.
When trying to cycle through instrument tracks WITH OR WITHOUT PINNED SECTIONS though, it seems that this command gets stuck when it reaches the "Instrument" Section. I guess that's because "Instrument" gets its own setup, and the entries are nested within, on a different level compared to the following entries. So, upon reaching Instrument, the underlying sections appear, but if you want to keep cycling with the key command, you'll have to manually open the first entry with the mouse. For me, it's "Equalizers". From there the command will work and cycle back normally, until reaching "Instrument" again.

  • Open Previous Section
Function: Opens the previous Inspector Section. You can cycle through all of them with this command.
Keyworthiness: 5
See above. BUT, when you have NO Sections pinned, this command will allow you to cycle through all the sections.

  • Toggle Channel Section
Function: Opens/Closes the Fader.
Keyworthiness: 5
Should be renamed to Fader Section
Does not work for Instrument Tracks' "Audio Fader" Section. HA!

  • Toggle Cue Sends Section
Function: Opens/Closes Cue Sends Section.
Keyworthiness: 5
Instrument Tracks don't have a Cue Sends Section.

  • Toggle Device Panel Section
Function: Opens/Closes Device Panel Section.
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Direct Routing Section
Function: Opens/Closes Direct Routing Section.
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Equalizers Section
Function: Opens/Closes Equalizers Section.
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Expression Map Section
Function: Opens/Closes Expression Map Section.
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Inserts Section
Function: Opens/Closes Inserts Section
Keyworthiness: 5
When used on an Instrument Track, it will open/close the MIDI Inserts.

  • Toggle MIDI Modifiers Section
Function: Opens/Closes MIDI Modifiers Section
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Note Expression Section
Function: Opens/Closes Note Expression Section
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Notepad Section
Function: Opens/Closes Notepad
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Quick Controls Section
Function: Opens/Closes Quick Controls Section
Keyworthiness: 5

  • Toggle Sends Section
Function: Opens/Closes Sends Section
Keyworthiness: 5
Does not work with Instrument Tracks.

  • Toggle Standard Section
Function: Opens/Closes Standard Section. This is the very first section, with the track's name in color.
Keyworthiness: 5



Macro - Not Covered



Marker


  • Activate Marker Track
Function: Activates the currently selected marker track. (if we are using more than one)
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on the marker track itself)

  • Insert and name Cycle Marker
Function: Inserts a cycle marker between the left and right locators, and opens the Markers window with the description field ready for input.
Keyworthiness: 7
Doesn't work with ranges or selections. A pity.

  • Insert and name Marker
Function: Inserts a marker at the cursor's position, and opens the Markers window with the description field ready for input.
Keyworthiness: 7

Function: The Forward button of the MediaBay browser
Keyworthiness: 6

  • Browse: Up
Function: The Up button of the MediaBay browser
Keyworthiness: 6

  • Convert Files
Function: When a file is selected in the Pool, you can use this command to convert the files to a new sample rate.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu)

  • Create Folder
Function: In Pool, creates a new folder.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on right click menu)
You can only add a folder beneath Audio, or Video. You cannot add a root folder on the same level with those two.

The name of the command should be "Pool: Create New Subfolder" for more clarity.

  • Create New Folder
Function: In MediaBay, creates a new folder under the selected path.
Keyworthiness: inf? (Can't seem to find a button to create folders in MediaBay browser)
The name of the command should be "MediaBay: Create New Folder" for more clarity.

  • Create Sampler Track
Function: Creates a Sampler Track from the selected file. Works in Pool and MediaBay browser.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on right click menu)
Not to be confused with Commands>Audio>Create Sample Track

  • Empty Trash
Function: Empties the trash folder in Pool. Works from the Project window too.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on right click menu in Pool)

  • Find Missing Files
Function: Brings up the Resolve Missing Files window, in order to choose the path where the missing files are located.
Keyworthiness: 0 (easily found on right click menu in Pool, pops up first when loading a project with files missing)

  • Generate Thumbnail Cache
Function: From the manual: "You can manually generate thumbnail cache files. This is necessary if a thumbnail cache file could not be generated during import because the folder is write-protected, or because you have edited the file with an external video editing application."
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found in Media menu)
Personally, when I hear "Thumbnail", my mind goes to Videos and Photos. This command remains available always, so I'm guessing it's a global command affecting just the video track (if present).

  • Hide Folders That Are Not Scanned
Function: In MediaBay, hides all the folders that have not been scanned.
Keyworthiness: 3 (found in MediaBay Settings cog)

  • Insert into Project at Left Locator
Function: Inserts the file selected in the Pool at the Left Locator. Creates a new track if no track is selected.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)
While the key for the key command is shown next to the command in Media>Insert into Project, if you go to Pool>Right click on file>Insert into Project, the command's shortcut key is not shown. In any case, the Pool must be open for the command to work.

  • Insert into Project at Origin
Function: Inserts the file selected in the Pool at its Origin. Creates a new track if no track is selected.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)
While the key for the key command is shown next to the command in Media>Insert into Project, if you go to Pool>Right click on file>Insert into Project, the command's shortcut key is not shown. In any case, the Pool must be open for the command to work.

  • Loop Browser
Function: Launches the Loop Browser
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)

  • New Version
Function: Creates a new version of the file selected in the Pool just underneath.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)
While the key for the key command is shown next to the command in Media, if you go to Pool>Right click on file, the command's shortcut key is not shown. In any case, the Pool must be open for the command to work.

  • Open MediaBay
Default: F5
Function: Opens MediaBay
Keyworthiness: 10

  • Open/Close Attribute Inspector
Default: Ctrl Alt Num 6
Function: Opens/Closes the Attribute Inspector in the MediaBay
Keyworthiness: 10?
This command is a show/hide right zone for the MediaBay, Loop Browser, and Sound Browser windows. Why have an extra command then? Because, if you activate Always on Top, this keycommand will work regardless of which window has focus (Project, Mixconsole). However, if we have all three windows open and always on top (MediaBay, Loop Browser, Sound Browser), the window that gets the command is MediaBay. If we close MediaBay, the next window to get the commands is Loop Browser.

It seems that this is a 5 segment layout - with Top, Left, Center, Right, Bottom Zones. I like it, and would like it implemented for all windows. Separating the key commands though, like in this instance, I'm not so sure.

  • Open/Close Favorites
Default: Ctrl Alt Num 8
Function: Opens/Closes Favorites in the MediaBay (Doesn't work for me. Not ready yet?)
Keyworthiness: 10?
See above.

  • Open/Close File Browser

Keyworthiness: 10?
See above.

  • Open/Close Previewer
Default: Ctrl Alt Num 2
Function: Opens/Closes the Previewer in the MediaBay
Keyworthiness: 10?
See above.

  • Prepare Archive
Function: Gathers all referenced files to the project's directory, with an option to flatten edits. Video files (if any) must be copied manually. Files in the project's directory must then be moved inside the Audio folder.
Keyworthiness: 3-8 depending

  • Preview Active On/Off
Function: ?
Keyworthiness: ?
I don't know what this does. Maybe it was there as an option before "Open/Close Previewer"?

  • Preview AutoPlay On/Off
Function: Toggles AutoPlay mode of the Previewer On and Off. Good for a quick listen.
Keyworthiness: 6
If the Right Zone of the project window has focus, and only then, the command will go there, no matter if you have A MediaBay window open and always on top. If the focus is on the project's Left Zone, Lower Zone, or the project window itself, the command will go to the MediaBay window.

  • Preview Cycle On/Off
Default: Shift Num /
Function: Toggles the Preview Cycle On and Off.
Keyworthiness: 6
See above.

  • Preview in Context On/Off
Function: The Preview is played at the Tempo of the Project. The button tooltip says "Align Beats to Project"
Keyworthiness: 6
See above.

  • Remove Missing Files
Function: In Pool, if the project complains about missing files, you can choose to remove them outright, so that events in the project window that point to those missing files are also removed.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu)

  • Remove Unused Media
Function: In Pool, if there exist files that are not used in the project, this command will remove them. You can see which files are unused in the Pool with the help of the "Used" column. If no number exists in this column, the file is unused.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu)

  • Rescan Disk
Function: Use this command to rescan the disk or folders for (new?) files.
Keyworthiness: 6
I'm not very confident that I really understand the differences between this command and "Refresh Views".

Function: In MediaBay, Loop Browser, and Soundbrowser, opens the Show Media Types panel. (next to the search field)
Keyworthiness: 6
You can navigate up and down with the arrow keys, and select/deselect entries with Return or Space.

  • Set Record Folder
Function: In Pool, if you have created many folders under the "Audio" main folder, you can use this command to set the selected folder as the record folder.
Keyworthiness: 3 (available in right click menu)

  • Show in Explorer
Function: Shows where the selected file is stored on the computer. Works in the Pool, and in MediaBay / LoopBrowser / Soundbrowser "Results" Zone.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu, right click menu)
Should be one command really.

  • Show in Explorer
Function: Shows where the selected folder is on the computer. Works for the left Zone of MediaBay / LoopBrowser /Soundbrowser.

Keyworthiness: ?
?



MediaInspector

This command category does not exist at first! Right clicking in the MediaBay Attribute Inspector will make it available in Key Commands. I wonder if this applies to other functions too. How many key commands have I missed?!

Keyworthiness: 3 (available in right click menu)

  • Search for []
Function: Searches for the selected attribute.

It is sad that channel settings do not have any more key commands. Even a simple “Insert Effect on Next Free Slot”, or “Activate Send 1-8” would go a long way.
Yes! Having a keycommand that focus the next free insert slot and opens plugin search - would be a killer thing! Inspired by Ableton. Adding a new plugin there has awesome flow. Ctrl+F (search) > EQ(query) > down(select) > enter(apply): and there you have an EQ. Quick and easy.
From there, you can go to the next slot with SHIFT LEFT/ SHIFT RIGHT. You can press ALT ENTER to “Activate” the selected slot.
Looks like an abandoned idea or something. Really usels.

I didn't know that! I'll study the page you posted in that other thread. It's unbelievable how many things are hidden from plain sight yet they work. And the crazy thing is, people who are used to the shortcuts will keep using them even if those shortcut displays disappear due to an update or any other reason, and they will think nothing of it. But someone who doesn't keep the 20+ years history of the program into their head will just assume the function doesn't exist, when in fact it DOES exist, it's just hidden. Mindblowing.
I have never knew how to do this! So useful! But is there any menu for this?

I'm not familiar with Ableton, but I think it's a pretty logical thing to have regardless.
Looks like an abandoned idea or something. Really usels.
Sometimes I wonder if there are commands that are used under the hood JUST for the CC121 or other controllers. Maybe it's something like this, maybe it's something left over and useless as you say, and they didn't have time to take it out yet?

Well, it seems to auto-select the MIDI events (notes) in editors when you position your cursor somewhere. (Simple click on the timeline/ruler)

The Inspector is the Left Zone of the project window. If you enter the setup (from the cog icon) you can make it so the device panels show. Device panels seem awfully powerful. I don't have the slightest idea about them. Maybe some darks arts specialists are still around to share some tips and tricks.

I tested that, but... nothing. It's a mystery.
Set Spacer between Selected Events

I wonder if it's crosstalk from Nuendo. I imagine that if you work in time mode and have lots of events parker one right after the other, and you wanted them to occur at a set interval, you'd use this command. And then the events would be all spaced apart by the seconds specified in the dialog. (Let's say we selected 10 seconds, Event A would stay still, the next event (B) would be moved so that it occured 10 seconds after A, then C would be moved so that it occured 10 seconds after B, etc. etc.)

YOU are a saint! Thank you so very much!

A big thanks to all of you guys! Your support and encouragement is VERY MUCH appreciated!
