Reaper-style action mapping
Posted: Fri Jan 24, 2014 4:49 am
So, this is another big one - I use Reaper a lot, and they have this 'action editor' where every user-editable variable can be found in a list, and then assign a keyboard shortcut to it, the way you can do Setup Global Midi Input. This would mean that all the things like multiply and dividing bars and things could be mapped to keys, or you could have two different record shortcuts, [enter] for record actions and [shift + enter] for record input, [space] for play/stop, [shift+space] for rewind-and-play/stop-and-rewind (I love the [shift + [key]] for mute and solo, it could be extended to give every key multiple functions!). Could this even be implemented while it's still developing so fast? Every release there's a million more user-editable parameters you've added! Maybe this is something that only a few users would want, once a 'final' version had emerged!
