I’m having trouble figuring out how to set up a macro or logical editor preset to do the following:
While comping a track, I have a region of takes set up. One take is highlighted and selected. I want to use a key command to both select and choose the comp for the previous take (i.e. go up a lane). I want to also do the opposite, i.e. go down a lane. I can figure out how to move the selection up and down by lanes, but not the current comp selection. I hope that makes sense! Eventually I want to put this on a macro and assign it to both a key command and a button in iC Pro.
Basically, I want to do the same thing as what happens when I click on a different take in a different lane with the comp tool and then click on the selection tool on that same take.
I don’t think this is possible. As far as I know there are no Key Commands or PLE capabilities to include a selection in a comp.
Thanks @raino - at least that confirms I’m not missing something!
It’s a good idea though - you could just arrow around and build a comp.
If only there was a Key Command to take whatever is currently selected and turn it into being comped. Then you could build it. But I just did a search and the only comp related KC was for selecting the Comp Tool.
@steve I don’t use it (yet?), but is this the kind of task that Auto Hot Key could facilitate?
That’s the idea!
For me, comping is the killer Cubase feature that sets it apart from say Logic. I’m always comping bass part for example. I feel like with just a few tweaks and features, comping could be even easier.
