List of All Key Commands in 10.5. 20 - Pdf and xlsx available

I’m not sure I understand “keyworthiness?”

Also…some key commands only function when a particular window is in focus. Would this be something valuable to add?

And finally, since you are being quite detailed, maybe a list of missing key commands?

Thanks John!

Ah, keyworthiness :mrgreen: . It’s just a rating (MY haphazard rating) of how much a key command is worth it to be assigned a key in a default key commands preset. Some key commands are GREAT for building macros, but it wouldn’t be worth it to sacrifice a keyboard key to assign them on. This rating reflects this. A VERY useful key command (in my humble opinion) will get a 10. Most default key commands get a 10, unless if they don’t work. If a key command doesn’t work, it will get a 0.

If a key command doesn’t do anything, or does something that is not immediately visible (after reading the manual and trying in project, mixconsole, editors), it gets a “?”. You can search for these with Ctrl F and chip in if you know what it does. It will be much appreciated!

It goes without saying that one man’s gold is another man’s trash. What seems awesome to me might be trivial to you. Don’t give this keyworthiness rating much thought. Consider it a “worth checking out” rating.

Also…some key commands only function when a particular window is in focus. Would this be something valuable to add?

Of course it would be valuable! For key commands that I expected them to work somewhere and they didn’t, I comment about it in the notes section of each key command. But testing all key commands in all windows is… I don’t know where to start. Maybe on a second pass I could look into it.

And finally, since you are being quite detailed, maybe a list of missing key commands?

In cases where this lack is obvious, for example in Edit Channel Settings, I leave a comment/note. However, since finding ALL missing key commands will require a full scan of all functions in all windows and editors, I think it’s too difficult for me alone to do accurately and reliably. More sets of eyes are needed!

Overall, I would like it if:

  1. I could somehow find an easy way to link to the manual for each key command. (but not have to do it again next update :laughing: )
  2. Find a way to make a 2007 excel (don’t laugh please) into an HTML(?) - SOMETHING - that will maintain the collapse/expand tree structure, and the dynamic excel filter of contemporary versions (I don’t have it in 2007), where you type in a cell and the relevant entries are shown as you type, letter by letter. I think this would make for a nice key command searcher, with multiple search fields, either by name, keys assigned, etc etc…

When I’m done, I’ll upload the excel file in the original post for everyone to do as they see fit with it.

Thank you for your interest!

Focus

Through trial and error, aid from assigned navigation keys, and sheer luck, you can even (mostly) (somewhat) control mixconsole racks, channel settings page, and others.


  • Back

Function: Moves focus to the previous focus point?
Keyworthiness: ?


  • Confirm

Default: Alt Return
Function: Multifunctional key. At times loads plug-ins, other times expands tabs, other times activates sends. It’s a key of action! Do I know what it does exactly? No.
Keyworthiness: 10


  • Escape

Function: Lose focus?
Keyworthiness: ?


  • Forward

Function: Moves focus to the next focus point?
Keyworthiness: ?



HeadTracking



  • Head Tracking

Function: Brings up the Head Tracking panel.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Easily accessible in Project menu)



Hitpoints

All the commands work with multiple selections (1 tool). If a range is selected (2 tool), hitpoint processing will apply to the whole event caught in the range, and not just the range.



  • Calculate

Function: Allows you to manually create Hitpoints for the selected event(s). (If Preferences>Editing>Audio>Enable Automatic Hitpoint Detection is unticked)
Keyworthiness: 7


  • Create Audio Slices from Hitpoints

Function: Slices up the selected event(s) at their hitpoints, and bundles all those new events (slices) into a part.
Keyworthiness: 7


  • Create Markers from Hitpoints

Function: As it says. This command will create a marker for each hitpoint encountered.
Keyworthiness: 7
When we use this command on multiple tracks and events, the numbering of the markers goes like this: Marker 1 will be the first hitpoint of the first event selected. Marker x will be the last hitpoint of the last event selected on the same track. Marker x+1 will be the first hitpoint of the first event selected on the second track etc. etc… So when the whole procedure completes, you will see marker numbers all over the place. To state it in another way, the markers are not sorted according to global project time. If you wish them to appear “in order”, use “Functions>Reassign Position Marker IDs” in the Markers window (Ctrl M)


  • Divide Audio Events at Hitpoints

Function: This will take the scissors to the events, and split them at the hitpoints’ positions.
Keyworthiness: 7


  • Remove Hitpoints

Function: If you are not happy with the detected hitpoints (automatically detected or otherwise) you can use this command to remove them all. Will also work with multiple selections.
Keyworthiness: 7



Hub



  • Hub

Function: Brings up the Hub panel.
Keyworthiness: 5



Import



  • AAF…

Function: Brings up the Import AAF window, in order to choose the file.
Keyworthiness: 4


  • OMF…

Function: Brings up the Import OMF window, in order to choose the file.
Keyworthiness: 4

Inspector

Instrument Tracks have problems with a few of these commands, probably due to the “dual” setup present on their inspector. Not all Sections are on the same level, causing “open next/previous” to fail. “Inserts” could be MIDI inserts or channel inserts. More refinement is required, and keycommands for all the sections.



  • Open Next Section

Function: Opens the next Inspector Section. You can cycle through all of them with this command.
Keyworthiness: 5
If you have Sections pinned, the command will skip to the next unpinned section and open that one instead.
When trying to cycle through instrument tracks WITH OR WITHOUT PINNED SECTIONS though, it seems that this command gets stuck when it reaches the “Instrument” Section. I guess that’s because “Instrument” gets its own setup, and the entries are nested within, on a different level compared to the following entries. So, upon reaching Instrument, the underlying sections appear, but if you want to keep cycling with the key command, you’ll have to manually open the first entry with the mouse. For me, it’s “Equalizers”. From there the command will work and cycle back normally, until reaching “Instrument” again.


  • Open Previous Section

Function: Opens the previous Inspector Section. You can cycle through all of them with this command.
Keyworthiness: 5
See above. BUT, when you have NO Sections pinned, this command will allow you to cycle through all the sections.


  • Toggle Channel Section

Function: Opens/Closes the Fader.
Keyworthiness: 5
Should be renamed to Fader Section
Does not work for Instrument Tracks’ “Audio Fader” Section. HA!


  • Toggle Cue Sends Section

Function: Opens/Closes Cue Sends Section.
Keyworthiness: 5
Instrument Tracks don’t have a Cue Sends Section.


  • Toggle Device Panel Section

Function: Opens/Closes Device Panel Section.
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Direct Routing Section

Function: Opens/Closes Direct Routing Section.
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Equalizers Section

Function: Opens/Closes Equalizers Section.
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Expression Map Section

Function: Opens/Closes Expression Map Section.
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Inserts Section

Function: Opens/Closes Inserts Section
Keyworthiness: 5
When used on an Instrument Track, it will open/close the MIDI Inserts.


  • Toggle MIDI Modifiers Section

Function: Opens/Closes MIDI Modifiers Section
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Note Expression Section

Function: Opens/Closes Note Expression Section
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Notepad Section

Function: Opens/Closes Notepad
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Quick Controls Section

Function: Opens/Closes Quick Controls Section
Keyworthiness: 5


  • Toggle Sends Section

Function: Opens/Closes Sends Section
Keyworthiness: 5
Does not work with Instrument Tracks.


  • Toggle Standard Section

Function: Opens/Closes Standard Section. This is the very first section, with the track’s name in color.
Keyworthiness: 5



Macro - Not Covered



Marker



  • Activate Marker Track

Function: Activates the currently selected marker track. (if we are using more than one)
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on the marker track itself)


  • Insert and name Cycle Marker

Function: Inserts a cycle marker between the left and right locators, and opens the Markers window with the description field ready for input.
Keyworthiness: 7
Doesn’t work with ranges or selections. A pity.


  • Insert and name Marker

Function: Inserts a marker at the cursor’s position, and opens the Markers window with the description field ready for input.
Keyworthiness: 7

Media

Function: The Forward button of the MediaBay browser
Keyworthiness: 6


  • Browse: Up

Function: The Up button of the MediaBay browser
Keyworthiness: 6


  • Convert Files

Function: When a file is selected in the Pool, you can use this command to convert the files to a new sample rate.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu)


  • Create Folder

Function: In Pool, creates a new folder.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on right click menu)
You can only add a folder beneath Audio, or Video. You cannot add a root folder on the same level with those two.

The name of the command should be “Pool: Create New Subfolder” for more clarity.


  • Create New Folder

Function: In MediaBay, creates a new folder under the selected path.
Keyworthiness: inf? (Can’t seem to find a button to create folders in MediaBay browser)
The name of the command should be “MediaBay: Create New Folder” for more clarity.


  • Create Sampler Track

Function: Creates a Sampler Track from the selected file. Works in Pool and MediaBay browser.
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on right click menu)
Not to be confused with Commands>Audio>Create Sample Track

Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found on right click menu in Pool)


  • Find Missing Files

Function: Brings up the Resolve Missing Files window, in order to choose the path where the missing files are located.
Keyworthiness: 0 (easily found on right click menu in Pool, pops up first when loading a project with files missing)


  • Generate Thumbnail Cache

Function: From the manual: “You can manually generate thumbnail cache files. This is necessary if a thumbnail cache file could not be generated during import because the folder is write-protected, or because you have edited the file with an external video editing application.”
Keyworthiness: 3 (easily found in Media menu)
Personally, when I hear “Thumbnail”, my mind goes to Videos and Photos. This command remains available always, so I’m guessing it’s a global command affecting just the video track (if present).


  • Hide Folders That Are Not Scanned

Function: In MediaBay, hides all the folders that have not been scanned.
Keyworthiness: 3 (found in MediaBay Settings cog)

Function: Inserts the file selected in the Pool at the Cursor’s position. Creates a new track if no track is selected.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)
While the key for the key command is shown next to the command in Media>Insert into Project, if you go to Pool>Right click on file>Insert into Project, the command’s shortcut key is not shown. In any case, the Pool must be open for the command to work.


  • Insert into Project at Left Locator

Function: Inserts the file selected in the Pool at the Left Locator. Creates a new track if no track is selected.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)
While the key for the key command is shown next to the command in Media>Insert into Project, if you go to Pool>Right click on file>Insert into Project, the command’s shortcut key is not shown. In any case, the Pool must be open for the command to work.


  • Insert into Project at Origin

Function: Inserts the file selected in the Pool at its Origin. Creates a new track if no track is selected.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)
While the key for the key command is shown next to the command in Media>Insert into Project, if you go to Pool>Right click on file>Insert into Project, the command’s shortcut key is not shown. In any case, the Pool must be open for the command to work.


  • Loop Browser

Function: Launches the Loop Browser
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)


  • New Version

Function: Creates a new version of the file selected in the Pool just underneath.
Keyworthiness: 5 (Media menu)
While the key for the key command is shown next to the command in Media, if you go to Pool>Right click on file, the command’s shortcut key is not shown. In any case, the Pool must be open for the command to work.


  • Open MediaBay

Default: F5
Function: Opens MediaBay
Keyworthiness: 10


  • Open/Close Attribute Inspector

Default: Ctrl Alt Num 6
Function: Opens/Closes the Attribute Inspector in the MediaBay
Keyworthiness: 10?
This command is a show/hide right zone for the MediaBay, Loop Browser, and Sound Browser windows. Why have an extra command then? Because, if you activate Always on Top, this keycommand will work regardless of which window has focus (Project, Mixconsole). However, if we have all three windows open and always on top (MediaBay, Loop Browser, Sound Browser), the window that gets the command is MediaBay. If we close MediaBay, the next window to get the commands is Loop Browser.

It seems that this is a 5 segment layout - with Top, Left, Center, Right, Bottom Zones. I like it, and would like it implemented for all windows. Separating the key commands though, like in this instance, I’m not so sure.


  • Open/Close Favorites

Default: Ctrl Alt Num 8
Function: Opens/Closes Favorites in the MediaBay (Doesn’t work for me. Not ready yet?)
Keyworthiness: 10?
See above.

Function: Opens/Closes the Previewer in the MediaBay
Keyworthiness: 10?
See above.


  • Prepare Archive

Function: Gathers all referenced files to the project’s directory, with an option to flatten edits. Video files (if any) must be copied manually. Files in the project’s directory must then be moved inside the Audio folder.
Keyworthiness: 3-8 depending


  • Preview Active On/Off

Function: ?
Keyworthiness: ?
I don’t know what this does. Maybe it was there as an option before “Open/Close Previewer”?


  • Preview AutoPlay On/Off

Function: Toggles AutoPlay mode of the Previewer On and Off. Good for a quick listen.
Keyworthiness: 6
If the Right Zone of the project window has focus, and only then, the command will go there, no matter if you have A MediaBay window open and always on top. If the focus is on the project’s Left Zone, Lower Zone, or the project window itself, the command will go to the MediaBay window.


  • Preview Cycle On/Off

Default: Shift Num /
Function: Toggles the Preview Cycle On and Off.
Keyworthiness: 6
See above.


  • Preview in Context On/Off

Function: The Preview is played at the Tempo of the Project. The button tooltip says “Align Beats to Project”
Keyworthiness: 6

Keyworthiness: 6


  • Remove Favorite

Function: Removes the selected Favorite in MediaBay.
Keyworthiness: 6


  • Remove Missing Files

Function: In Pool, if the project complains about missing files, you can choose to remove them outright, so that events in the project window that point to those missing files are also removed.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu)


  • Remove Unused Media

Function: In Pool, if there exist files that are not used in the project, this command will remove them. You can see which files are unused in the Pool with the help of the “Used” column. If no number exists in this column, the file is unused.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu)


  • Rescan Disk

Function: Use this command to rescan the disk or folders for (new?) files.
Keyworthiness: 6
I’m not very confident that I really understand the differences between this command and “Refresh Views”.

Function: In MediaBay, Loop Browser, and Soundbrowser, opens the Show Media Types panel. (next to the search field)
Keyworthiness: 6
You can navigate up and down with the arrow keys, and select/deselect entries with Return or Space.


  • Set Record Folder

Function: In Pool, if you have created many folders under the “Audio” main folder, you can use this command to set the selected folder as the record folder.
Keyworthiness: 3 (available in right click menu)


  • Show in Explorer

Function: Shows where the selected file is stored on the computer. Works in the Pool, and in MediaBay / LoopBrowser / Soundbrowser “Results” Zone.
Keyworthiness: 3 (Media menu, right click menu)
Should be one command really.

  • Write Attributes to File

Function: Not sure. This command exists in the Pool’s right click menu, but the key command key is not shown next to it. On the other hand it shows next to the corresponding entry in the Media menu. In MediaBay, changing of attributes is done automatically I believe.
Keyworthiness: ?
?



MediaInspector

This command category does not exist at first! Right clicking in the MediaBay Attribute Inspector will make it available in Key Commands. I wonder if this applies to other functions too. How many key commands have I missed?!



  • Remove Attribute

Function: Removes the selected Attribute in MediaBay’s Attribute inspector.
Keyworthiness: 3 (available in right click menu)


  • Search for []

Function: Searches for the selected attribute.
Keyworthiness: 3 (available in right click menu)

OMG what a post! I saw it when I was surfing through new posts and I didn’t enter it because of title, I thought it was some rant :smiley: I think it’s better for it to have some self explanatory name (if it is still possible to edit the title)

Post of the century! @ ggmanestraki Thanks so much for doing this. :smiley:

BTW, right click menu also supports hotkeys, Disable Track is B. Much faster than hotkey or mouse.

I have never knew how to do this! So useful! But is there any menu for this?

Yes! Having a keycommand that focus the next free insert slot and opens plugin search - would be a killer thing! Inspired by Ableton. Adding a new plugin there has awesome flow. Ctrl+F (search) > EQ(query) > down(select) > enter(apply): and there you have an EQ. Quick and easy.

From there, you can go to the next slot with SHIFT LEFT/ SHIFT RIGHT. You can press ALT ENTER to “Activate” the selected slot.

Looks like an abandoned idea or something. Really usels.

Function: When you give this command, the Preference Auto Select Events under Cursor is Activated/Deactivated.

What does this Preference actually do? I tried it from the select menu, actually it should be called: select events under playhead (transport bar). Activating this option doesn’t work for me in C10.0.3. What is expected behaviour? Events under mouse cursor becomes selected?

Cut Head

This is something Cubase 10 doesn’t have by default.

Enlarge Range to Previous Event

New in Cubase 10.5


Open Device Panel
Function: Opens the Device Panel for the selected track.
Keyworthiness: 5 depending (easily available on Inspector)

Where is Inspector? I don’t get Device Panels, but I thought you can create macro-rotaries there (like one that control few parameters). Are there some tutorials about device panels out there?

Save as Default
Function: ?
Keyworthiness: ?

Maybe this is something to do with plugins. There is option “Save current preset as default”

Set Spacer between Selected Events

I wonder what is use case for this?

I will be able to transform your Excel into HTML with search, hit me up when you are done.

I didn’t know that! I’ll study the page you posted in that other thread. It’s unbelievable how many things are hidden from plain sight yet they work. And the crazy thing is, people who are used to the shortcuts will keep using them even if those shortcut displays disappear due to an update or any other reason, and they will think nothing of it. But someone who doesn’t keep the 20+ years history of the program into their head will just assume the function doesn’t exist, when in fact it DOES exist, it’s just hidden. Mindblowing.

I have never knew how to do this! So useful! But is there any menu for this?

I’m not sure I get you. It’s in Audio>Realtime Processing>Unstretch Audio. Is this what you mean?

Yes! Having a keycommand that focus the next free insert slot and opens plugin search - would be a killer thing! Inspired by Ableton. Adding a new plugin there has awesome flow. Ctrl+F (search) > EQ(query) > down(select) > enter(apply): and there you have an EQ. Quick and easy.

I’m not familiar with Ableton, but I think it’s a pretty logical thing to have regardless.

Looks like an abandoned idea or something. Really usels.

Sometimes I wonder if there are commands that are used under the hood JUST for the CC121 or other controllers. Maybe it’s something like this, maybe it’s something left over and useless as you say, and they didn’t have time to take it out yet?

What does this Preference actually do? I tried it from the select menu, actually it should be called: select events under playhead (transport bar). Activating this option doesn’t work for me in C10.0.3. What is expected behaviour? Events under mouse cursor becomes selected?

Well, it seems to auto-select the MIDI events (notes) in editors when you position your cursor somewhere. (Simple click on the timeline/ruler)

Cut Head
This is something Cubase 10 doesn’t have by default.

Enlarge Range to Previous Event

New in Cubase 10.5

Yes, I’m on 10.5.20

Open Device Panel
Function: Opens the Device Panel for the selected track.
Keyworthiness: 5 depending (easily available on Inspector)

Where is Inspector? I don’t get Device Panels, but I thought you can create macro-rotaries there (like one that control few parameters). Are there some tutorials about device panels out there?

The Inspector is the Left Zone of the project window. If you enter the setup (from the cog icon) you can make it so the device panels show. Device panels seem awfully powerful. I don’t have the slightest idea about them. Maybe some darks arts specialists are still around to share some tips and tricks.

Save as Default
Function: ?
Keyworthiness: ?

Maybe this is something to do with plugins. There is option “Save current preset as default”

I tested that, but… nothing. It’s a mystery.

Set Spacer between Selected Events
I wonder what is use case for this?

I wonder if it’s crosstalk from Nuendo. I imagine that if you work in time mode and have lots of events parker one right after the other, and you wanted them to occur at a set interval, you’d use this command. And then the events would be all spaced apart by the seconds specified in the dialog. (Let’s say we selected 10 seconds, Event A would stay still, the next event (B) would be moved so that it occured 10 seconds after A, then C would be moved so that it occured 10 seconds after B, etc. etc.)

I will be able to transform your Excel into HTML with search, hit me up when you are done.

YOU are a saint! Thank you so very much!

A big thanks to all of you guys! Your support and encouragement is VERY MUCH appreciated!

Keyworthiness: 9


  • Event Display - Show Overlaps

Function: Cycles between “Show Overlaps: Always”, “Show Overlaps: On Mouse Over” and “Show Overlaps: Never”
Keyworthiness: 6
I can’t figure out how “On Mouse Over” works. I always see the overlaps (“zebra strip”), be it “On Mouse Over” or “Always”. I would expect that “On Mouse Over” I would need to, you know, move the mouse over the area in question for the “zebra strip” to show up. It seems it doesn’t work this way. Comments?

Keyworthiness: 6


  • MIDI - Legato Mode: Between Selected Notes Only

Function: Activates/Deactivates.
Keyworthiness: 6
I expected this command to connect to the Inspector>Editor>Length>Between Selected

It is not connected. As this is a preference, it sort of makes sense, yet the same function mentioned above does not have a key command. ?

I am not sure about how those two same(?) functions interact when one is on and the other is off.

Keyworthiness: 3 (not something to change frequently I imagine)


  • MIDI - Split MIDI Controllers

Function: Activates/Deactivates. When activated: If you split a MIDI part in the project window, this preference will make it so that the new part gets a CC data node at its start (if the value was different than 0). When deactivated: The controller will not get a data node at the start. (and playback oddities may ensue if you throw away the first part that had the CC value leading into the the second parts value.)
Keyworthiness: 3 (not something to change frequently I imagine)
I cannot imagine why someone would want to keep this preference deactivated. (?)


  • MIDI - Split MIDI Events

  • Plug-ins - Open Effect Editor after Loading It

Function: Activates/Deactivates. When activated, loading a plug-in will immediately bring up its window (GUI).
Keyworthiness: 8
If you are planning on creating 10 instances of “Mystic” for example, it’s a good idea to deactivate this preference before the batch creation. Even if you can close all plug-in windows with one key after the fact, it takes some time to actually load all those windows, so it’s better if you don’t let them load from the get-go, using this preference.


  • Plug-ins - Plug-in Editors “Always on Top”

Function: Activates/Deactivates. Per manual: “Always shows the control panels for effect plug-ins and VST instruments on top of other windows.”
Keyworthiness: 8?
? Well, not working quite as I would expect here. ?


  • Plug-ins - Suspend VST 3 plug-in processing when no audio signals are received

Function: Activates/Deactivates. The troublesome preference. Steinberg advised to keep this off until further notice (at the time of 10.5.20). When activated, VST 3 plug-ins suspend their processing (thus improving performance and reducing cpu load) when no audio is passing through.
Keyworthiness: 3 (not something to change frequently I imagine)


  • Plug-ins - Synchronize Plug-in Program Selection to Track Selection

Function: Activates/Deactivates. When Activated: If you have a multitimbral instrument like Halion SE and you are feeding it from many midi tracks, navigating the project window, going from MIDI track 1 to MIDI track 2 will move the respective sound slots in the plug-in’s window.

Keyworthiness: 3 (not something to change frequently I imagine)


  • Tools - Show Toolbox on Right-Click

Function: Activates/Deactivates. When activated, right clicking will bring up the toolbox. When deactivated, it will bring up the “regular” right click menu, which has the tools one level deep, but also more contextual functions.
Keyworthiness: 3 (not something to change frequently I imagine)
An infamous preference, due to the fact that the right click menu available now has seen some pruning, and users want the removed functions back.

When you finally have finished, I hope you put everything here in a PDF download? :smiley:

I could easily make it a pdf in this format, yes. But what I’d really like, is if keto88 could make the excel (from which I’m taking the data and posting it here as text) into an html (Offline). That would be the bomb. I will of course post the excel file when I’m done, and a pdf/doc/txt of this current format.

I’m getting there! :smiley:
