A tip for Mac users: Keyboard Maestro


I’ve discovered Keyboard Maestro recently (apparently I’m on the late side), and it’s a very versatile tool for OS X users. I use a large orchestral template very often and the tracks and instruments names are always the same. It took me around 10 minutes to set up a floating palette, which you invoke with a hotkey of your choice, which then (with the help of simple Project Logical Editor presets) toggles the show/hide status of groups of tracks. Very practical. Probably a zillion more uses for this, I’m only starting to check this out. It’s a shame so many Cubase commands are nowhere to be found in menus or in the default Key Commands.
