I’m guessing this is simply done, but I am ignorant & have no idea how, so maybe you can help.
I am interested in adding a keybinding for “Silence Selection” in the sample editor… seems odd that it doesn’t have one available in the keys preference pane, especially since all the other buttons below the sample window already have keybinds by default.
I imagine it’s just a matter of adding the right code in the right place, or of making a simple tool? But again, I am ignorant.
Does anyone know how to do this?
From the main Preferences window, click on
At the top, where you see the full list of available assignments, search for “silence”
You should see
Insert Silence and map to whatever. I set mine to
CTRL+i, I guess for “insert”, but I forget exactly why.
I know though that when fixing up vox samples this made it easier to just mute all the ambient noise between actual singing
No, I’m looking to map “silence selection,” not insert silence. The problem is that silence selection doesn’t come up as a mappable option.
Does anyone else know how this could be done?
You are correct. I do have “silence selection” mapped, but not to ctrl+i, but alt+m. I knew I had a mapping for it but forget which it was.
When I mouse over the button on the toolbar I get a pop-up saying
[ALT M] = when 'Sample Editor' is focused
I could not recall how this was done. so I did some searching, and found an old Renoise post by
me asking the same question : )
In the sample editor I can select part of the wave and then go click on the button below for “Silence selection”
When I hover the mouse over this button I get a popup help bubble that says “Silence selection [noKey]”
I take this to mean that no keyboard shortcut has yet been assigned to this. (Other buttons will show the assigned keyboard shortcut if one has been assigned.)
However, if I go to Renoise options and try to set a keyboard shortcut for this button the option is not found. I search…
Great, thanks. “Silence selection” must have used to be called “mute” and it never got updated in the keybinding preferences after it was updated in the menu selection… That’s my guess, anyway.
In any case, thanks for helping get that mapped!
