More shortcuts

Post by Cedric » Sun Jun 24, 2018 10:25 am

Hello,
Please add as many shortcuts as possible and document them in the help.

The ultimate goal is to never have to move hands in an exercice for any action, such as stop, start, next , previous. Best next case is to have to move 1 hand. One should never have to use the mouse as it's unproductive and sometimes delicate to place on a surface almost wholly occupied by a master keyboard.


Example:
Start: 1 keypress on a pedal
stop: 2 quick keypressels on a pedal
next: 3 quick keypressels on a pedal
previous: 4 quick keypressets on a pedal

Alternatively, you could give the midi codes corresponding to each action for people to be able to program their controller.

Alternative with just piano keyboard:
Start: 2 lowest keys (white+back) of the piano keyboard simulataneously.
Stop: key 1 + key 3 of of the piano keyboard (white +white) simulataneously.
Next: Key 1 + key 4 of of the piano keyboard (white +white) simulataneously.
Previous: Key 1 + Key 5 of the piano keyboard (white +black) simulataneously.

This could be mirrored on the top of the keyboard for people preferring to use the right kay:
Start: 2 highest keys, and so forth.

Ideally, this would also be duplicated on computer keyboard, with custom defined shortcuts.

Thanks for the suggestion, Cedric! Shortcuts are always a good feature to have. I can see what the team thinks.

I actually got on the forums for the first time to ask if there was a way to do this. I would like to be able to map the extra buttons on my Launchkey MK2 to the repeat and other song controls so I am not forced to reach over or around my keyboard every time I wish to restart a song. Being new to piano and feeling like I have to reliably perfect a song before moving on, I am constantly restarting and this would be a pretty massive QoL improvement. Please please please add this or let me know if there is already some way to do it.

I too have been wanting some more shortcuts. I’m waiting for the day when you can just talk to the computer and give commands (like one can with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Apple Siri devices.

I'm not sure if we could map in-app functions to buttons on the keyboard. But I do think that more computer keyboard shortcuts are possible and will be added at some point in the future.

Donka61, I'm sure that day will arrive before we know it. Crazy!
