'Play from mouse position' shortcut

I often use Keyboard Maestro (on Mac) to create shortcuts or macros to extend functionality in apps. One I use all the time in Wavelab is ‘play from mouse position’. Essentially its a macro which:

‘Left clicks at current mouse location’
‘Hit Enter key’

Pretty simple but means I can navigate to anywhere within the audio file or montage really quickly. I stole it from Studio One and Reaper who have it built in. I’ve assigned it to ALT + Spacebar as an alternative play button. It might be a good feature to bring into a future version of Wavelab. I know I would certainly use it all day long.

Nice!

Do you have any more ready great Macros for Wavelab? Do you know where can I find some?

Thanks!

This feature is already available in WaveLab for several years:
“Alt + Space” bar starts WaveLab at the mouse position.

Wow!
Thanks for telling me.
I guess I’m too newbie.
:pray:

I’m pretty sure some long time WaveLab users don’t know this shortcut either :wink:
