i work primarily in the track and key editors. i've figured out how to do the things below with a mouse, but i'd like to use some key combinations to save some time and improve my workflow. i've read through the operation manual and searched in the documentation for answers to my questions, but haven't found any. hope one of you can steer me in the right direction.
- what key command can i use to set the loop range's left or right end to the current cursor position ?
here i'm talking about the highlighted bar that can be set to span a number of measures across the track editor's bars/beats ruler, that governs what section of a piece is looped when looping is enabled.
- how can i turn on/off midi monitoring in a trouble-free manner ?
ideally, i want the 'monitor' mode [icon that looks like a loudspeaker] to turn on automatically whenever i select a midi/vsti track and be on for only that track. however, it seems like i can set these only manually.
if that's not possible, is there any way to turn off monitoring on ALL tracks at once ?
[actually, on a similar vein, i'd like a way to turn off any of the audio states -- solo, mute, record, monitor -- on all tracks at once by using a single key command. is that possible ? ]
- how can i set the key editor to use a specific midi channel ?
if no notes are selected in the key editor, any notes i play on the mock 'keyboard' of the key editor are sent out channel 1, as is anything i draw into a controller lane. my current 'work-around' for the controller lane is that i re-select them after drawing them, then change their channel from the information bar, which is cumbersome. i still haven't figured out a way to set the mock keyboard to send on a specific channel.
i can get it to do this if i set the midi channel selector in the track's header [in the track editor] to a specific channel [rather than 'any'], but that completely defeats the purpose of having multiple channels on the track .
