I’m trying to work out what is and is not possible with keyboard shortcuts to improve workflow.
One scenario is where I want to edit note velocities in a MIDI region.
If I’m in Grab mode I can Alt+up/down to select a track.
If I’m in Internal Edit mode then once I’ve selected the first note in a region I can Ctrl+up/down or Ctrl+Alt+Shift+up/down to make larger/smaller changes to velocity.
Then I can Tab to the next note and repeat the process if required. I can’t Shift+Tab to cycle back through notes but that’s not really an issue.
My question is; is there a way to join those things up without using a mouse? So having selected a track is it possible to 1) select a region in that track and 2) select the first note in that region, without reaching for the mouse?
There is also the issue of magnification. At the moment I’d select a region and hit z to fit the region to the screen while also deselecting the region. I then need to hit e to get to Internal Edit mode and click on the first note to start editing.
I’m just wondering if there’s a more time-efficient way of doing things.
