These are really-really-really useful bindings and they make sense. I am not the only one who has to reconfigure them every time they upgrade a version.
I also like to have a shortcut for these operations, but to which keys assign them is quite personal and, since these operations were not available in past trackers, it’s not “obvious” to simply place them somewhere.
anyway, your solution still looks better than mine: I added a “SHIFT” to the normal semitone shortcuts, but of couse these idea leaves the “transpose track” operations out of the business.
Yeah, it’s the same as the F1 and F2 bindings just +10. Comfortable and very intuitive. It’s not my original idea, lot of renoise users seem to use those bindings. If one doesn’t like them, they can always rebind, but this is really reasonable solution to make these default.
And let’s forget about past trackers, renoise is The tracker right now, and if anything other trackers should learn from us.
oh, indeed I forgot to mention that I don’t have to reconfigure keybindings when I install a new version, even on Linux, as there are separate .renoise subfolders for each version, and the copy of the previous version shorcuts happens automatically. If this does not work for you, you can still copy keybidings.xml by yourself
