Oh. It motivates me to keep it updated ;)

Added a link section too. That will grow over time too....

I wonder at which point i can stop calling it the little list. It still needs some work, because "medium list" just doesn't sound right :D

Very good idea to add a link section :). Here is my contribution: a nice, systematic, and very complete list of Mackie Control Protocol commands can be found at http://members.aol.com/mhigrules/MCMap.htm

In that list C4 has the MIDI note value of 60.

I disagree. The list is being updated all the time. So it's always a good read for some people. Especially the new folks.

Just look at how many users join each day.

So bump :wink:

Here's my contribution:

Disabling The Dangerous F10 'Return To Arrangement' Button
============================================

If you are running clips in session view and use ctrl-F12 to maximise the clip view window, then you are at risk of hitting F10 which returns to arrangement.
If you have nothing in your arrangement window, then your music will stop.
Nasty silence ensues.

So to work around this, you can assign a harmless program shortcut to F10 such as Explorer, or notepad. Then if you accidentally hit F10 during your set, the harmless program will start and you will NOT return to arrangement.

To set this up:
Create a shortcut for the program, then right-click it to see the Properties and Shortcut Key field. Enter F10 for the shortcut and Click OK.

Any shortcuts made at the OS level take precedence over the shortcuts within the application level.

Enjoy the safety!
