Shortcuts can dramatically speed up your workflow. They're an essential part of operating and controlling and DAW, and in many cases fundamental when it comes to delivering projects on tight deadlines. Here are 15 of the best shortcuts you can use in PreSonus Studio One!
Return/Enter | Play
Got someone in on a session and what to play your song from the start? This looks a lot slicker than reaching for the mouse each time and returning to base…
Cmd + S | Save
Pretty self-explanatory, but probably the key command you’ll want to abuse the most!
* | Record
This is by far one of the most useful key commands in Logic Pro if you you’re tracking live instruments or even Midi for that matter.
T | Add Tracks
This quick key command means you don’t have to fall out the creative loop when summoning new audio, midi and AUX tracks.
R | Arm Tracks for recording
Hit record but forgot to arm your track? Nothing can be more annoying. This key command means you don’t have stretch and move the mouse when tracking apart.
Cmd + G | Group Tracks
Huge sessions call for organization, group, and stack your tracks and bring some calm to your DAW session!
X | Create crossfades
This neat key command will create crossfades within your chose audio regions.
Shift + X | Create auto-cross fades
Similar to crossfades but with even less work needed, automatic crossfades!
Cmd + B | Bounce in Place
Need to render midi to audio, or offload processing? Bounce in place! Also great if you only have a trial version of a VST….shhhhh!
Cmd + M | Open Melodyne
This is completely unique and brilliant to Studio One. With just a simple key command you can instantly summon Melodyne!
Cmd + V | VocAlign
This is completely unique and brilliant to Studio One. With just a simple key command you can instantly summon VocAlign!
Cmd + R | Reverse Audio
Sound Design, transitions and FX are so important in most commercial music genres. Reversing your audio can create unique transition affects for merging sections together.
Cmd + P | Insert Instrument Part
Another big-time saver meaning you won’t have to reach for the mouse and keep in the creative flow!
Q | Quantize
When working with Midi, this feature is invaluable. Quickly quantize anything and everything instantly!
F5 | Opens the browser
Opening up the browser on a hotkey, means you don’t have to grab your mouse to repeat the same moves over and over again and limit your technical workflow and focus on what really matters – Making great music.
