@Funk N. Furter: depending on what has focus in Live, the arrow keys do different things. E.g. if you click in the browser, you can use the arrow keys to navigate the folders/files. Having the ctrl-arrow keys available, you can navigate Session view without having to think about what has focus in Live’s GUI.
Did I tell you you're a genius??!!
It also doesn't interfere with my little custom trick of using alt plus arrow keys to keyboard scroll in Live
. With this too you don't need to focus but you do have to hover over the part of Live you want to scroll in.
2 of your shortcuts do
clash with my left hand version of keyboard scrolling, but it's easy (2 second job) to switch off that option (of mine) when you are not using it. People who do need it will have to modify either my script or yours. It uses the left ctrl key plus QAWS to scroll. There's always gonna be clashes when you get into a shedload of custom shortcuts. Fortunately I don't use ctrl much, most of my stuff in Easy ways to control Live Part 3: A higher state of mouselessness
is alt shortcuts, and for universal ones like launching apps I tend to use cmd ones.
Please note the smallprint: MacAbleton's Easy ways to control Live Parts 2 and 3 are Mac only. You need KeyRemap (free) and iKey (discount coupon at MacAbleton brings price down to £13 while offer is on. I do NOT get any money for promoting either product.
