Command / macro to lower volume automation ?

Hi,

i like to use a key command for Audio - inc/decrement event volume.
But using range, i would also like to “move vertically” the volume automation of the track by 1db (including any automation recorded there (i don’t want that to be flattened)) because when i use the mouse, there’s no info on what is going on, depending on the vertical zoom it varies. i want 1db … maybe 2 and i hate moving the mouse random. i end up stoping playback to check the value :stuck_out_tongue:

but i can’t find that command or the macro to do that.
ideas ?

Interesting task! I’ll try to figure out if it could be done , cause I need this macro also)

Got it!
It works only in single range mode for now. It’s hard to get initial state of range In Combine mode(more research needed)
Macro Automation + :
Transport - Locators to Selection
Tool - Object Selection Tool: Normal Sizing
Edit - Select All on Tracks
Process “PLE+” (*)
Tool - Range Selection Tool

Macro Automation - :
Transport - Locators to Selection
Tool - Object Selection Tool: Normal Sizing
Edit - Select All on Tracks
Process “PLE-” (*)
Tool - Range Selection Tool

*PLE+ :
Media Type – Equal --Automation
Preperty – Preperty Set – Event is selected
Position – inside Cycle

Trim — Multiply by – 1.0278
Function: Transform

*PLE- :
Media Type – Equal --Automation
Preperty – Preperty Set – Event is selected
Position – inside Cycle

Trim — Multiply by – 0.9720
Function: Transform

Maybe you’ll find a way for Combine mode. Hope i’s what you need.

What’s wrong with the existing Trim-Automation-features …? Or do you explicitly aim for a key-command-only solution?

Yeah, it was about how to make shortcut for that without using mouse.

I see. :slight_smile:

Hey McSound,

thx again for the code. Works great !
good job thanks. i didn’t understood all i’ll dig into it later :wink:
very usefull.
now… i wish i could do this with the “alt mouse” for exemple.
select range of event and “alt scroll up or down” that would improve the workflow.
should be a basic function in nuendo no ?

anyway thanks again for the help and time.


—EDIT
oh ! also realise i prefer the behavior of your code rather then the mouse trim. because your code does not generate a new event at L&R of the range.

Glad to help) Unfortunately mouse is not tweakable. Only keyboard shortcuts will do.
