He got overwhelmed with the power of the dark side, I recall? Yes. Now. Got that cheap shot out of the way…
Oh, yeah, that. Uhm. It’s still there. It’s haunting me. I want to do it but lack the willpower. Also I’m a little scared of that beast. It can bring a man down by its sheer amount of lines. Got. To. Try.
It’s very small now:
-Focus DSP list search box (Actually this is doable but takes three key hits (Focus DSP lane,TAB,TAB))
-Move track (mouse only?)
-Move track into an existing group (mouse only?)
-Rename track (mouse only, just scripted a bypass)
-Rename Pattern (the same)
-Rename Section (mouse only, could be scripted.)
-and being able to edit DSP parameters without the mouse.
-Hide / show instrument-box
-was gonna say “cursor focus to disk browser” but, Global->View->Focus/Show Disk op/Scopes exists - unfortunately api doesn’t have entries for it
-shortcuts for increasing / decreasing pc keyboard velocity ( ) (same for midi +1/-1)
+1/-1 increase of BPM
i guess there’s no need for me to list adv.edit parameters
Well. I believe (and you should correct me if I’m wrong) you cannot move tracks around with the keyboard.
I was thinking something like move current track left/right (selected_track should follow along, so you can surf a track right over the screen using just these keys). Maybe with sequencer tracks/send tracks wrapping? I don’t know if it’s ergonomical/expected behaviour or not, though?
With groups it gets a bit harder. I think the most logical way to handle track grouping with keyboard would be pushing them next to a group, and then from there INTO the group with a dedicated left/right directed bind? Pushing normal left/right would just ‘skip’ the group track. I haven’t really thought this over, so please everybody reading this do so. The same bind could probably be used to pull stuff OUT of the groups. This is all just a quick intuition.
These IMO are THE basic track-shortcuts that are missing so far. (But with 2.8 in beta, some of these could possibly pop up natively? So maybe push at least that grouping development a bit farther? I don’t know.)
