Many buttons in Cubase can be assigned a shortcut.
But the problem is normally this shortcut toggles the control.
So take autoscroll for example. If autoscroll is on, hitting your shortcut will turn it off.
And if it’s off, your shortcut will turn it on.
But this is less than ideal.
This is how my mind works: sometimes i think “ah-ha, now i want autoscroll on”. I don’t care if it’s presently on or off, i just want it on!
So it would be great to be able to assign shortcuts to for example “autoscroll on”, regardless of it’s present state.
Because as it is (toggle) you need to look at the button on the screen to actually know what the state is, whereas what i like about shortcuts is the fact that you don’t (in theory) need to look at the screen or touch your mouse to achieve a certain action.
So to cut a long story short, anyone know if it’s possible to assign shortcuts in the manner outlined above?!
Hmm but if all key commands were to be only On or Off, then we would need double the amount of shortcuts than a toggle gives us. I do like the idea for some commands, it can get a little stressful when recording a live band and you have to have an eye on a lot of stuff at the same time.
