Yeah, that’s what’s interesting. So I did a test where I replaced my Return to Project Start (RTZ) command with the same [. 10/10 times it did exactly what I expected it to do. I’ve also changed the key command three separate times now on my macro, each time making sure that the key command is not previously assigned to anything else. It’s wacky no matter what the key command I assign.
What I have discovered is that the behavior is even weirder than I initially thought. Each time I use the key command (and it doesn’t matter which key command I assign it), it’s like a game of chance. Here are my options:
- It works as it’s supposed to on the first press
- It works as it’s supposed to but I have to press the button multiple times for it to do anything
- It pastes the selection to a new track below the tracks I’m working on and often extends my range selection for no reason.
The macro is one I made and is very simple:
So I make a selection
Then I hit the key command for the macro which should do this
But then sometimes THIS happens: (notice the new track where it pastes the selection and the extended selection on track 1). I haven’t hit any other buttons.
I’ve been using Steinberg software for about 20 years and I’ve never seen such bizarre behavior. Do you think trashing the preferences may fix an issue like this?
