    Default On and Off keyboard shortcuts

    KC,

    The Effects toolbar shows keyboard shortcuts for many functions:

    Ramp on - R
    Ramp off -F
    Partial Ramp on -Shift R
    Partial Ramp off - Shift F
    Intensity - I

    et cetera.

    However, the lack of a (discoverable, in any case) keyboard shortcut for 'on' and 'off' is a major omission. How about '1' as a keyboard shortcut for on and '0' as a keyboard shortcut for off, please?
    There sure as hell *are* user-serviceable parts inside!

    The spacebar toggles on/off.

    Since you didn't know this, I assume you haven't watched the Vixen How-to videos that Xmus made. If you have the time, they are worth a look.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that you can use the spacebar to turn on/off a cell when you are playing the song and trying to sequence. This is a very easy way to make sure you are hitting the beats in a track. Slowing the song down to 1/4 or 1/2 speed and doing this can help even more if it is a faster song.

    I always add a few channels to my sequences that are for laying out the beats only using this method. They don't get mapped to any output controllers or the adjustable preview. They are just reference points in the file.
    1 channel, 0 dimmable. Powered by a man flicking a lightswitch to the beat.
