Great article, Scott. I have some more tips:
– I mapped to audiomixer functions to a key: ‘set level on track’ and ‘adjust pan/vols on track. The first is handy if you want to match the level of a whole segment to the clip you just adjusted. The second is great for a relative change to a whole range of clips.
– The Avid suites I work in often don’t have a control interface, however they almost always have a Wacom tablet attached. The tablet has buttons, to which you can assign multiple keyboard commands by simply typing them like text. This way for example I programmed a button to 1) find bin 2) cursor down 3)enter. Now I am able to browse through a bin and play clips WITHOUT a mouse click, just by tapping the Wacom button.
-Recently I started using an old iPad with Streamdeck software (yearly subscription of €29,99). In addition to the control surfaces you mentioned, it’s a way to visualize keyboard shortcuts with an icon, or program complex sequences of shortcuts that could make life as an editor easier.
Anyone else like to share some tips and/or tricks?
