MixConsole: scroll/move horizontally

Hello there,
I am searching for a convenient way to scroll/move horizontally in the mix console.
I know if you move your mouse to the bottom below the faders jo can scroll left/right by using the mousewheel, but it’s not fast to go always down there and even the scroll speed is really slow if you have a project with 100+ tracks. Plus i dont want to go near the track faders to accidentally move them.

Is there a way to use something like shift+Scroll (in the free space in the middle) like for example in the project window?
(I have got a lot of free space on the mixconsole, so touching the knobs/faders wouldnt be an issue)

Or even key commands like PageUp/PageDown where the window jumps to the next page?
(Home/End keys seem to do their job fine instead, PageUp/Down not)

I have seen you can move from left to right using the arrow keys, but they are also way too slow for this (and I am preferably looking for a way to do this with the mouse instead).

If your mouse cursor is over the meters (close to fader), you can use scroll up/down or left/right.

Another option is to use Key board Arrow left/right to select next/previous track.

Or you can use Find Track/Channel (Ctrl+F) and type the name of the Channel.

Or you can scroll in the Visibility and click to the Channel in the Visibility tab.

Hey, I was looking for exactly the same solution, how are you dealing with it? It is indeed pretty ‘not-so’ straight forward… I do want to scroll horizontally fast…

Hey John, unfortunately there is no real solution. I just avoid using the mix console because of this.

Um… my ultimate solution became…

STEM SUM it. and just… minimize the track counts on mixconsole. That did the trick for me…
