Pro Tools – Shortcut of the Week (2009.05.25)

leave a comment »

Pro Tools is a strong multi-track editing program, but unless you’re willing to drop some change on a custom keyboard, it can be tough to learn all the keyboard shortcuts.  I’m featuring one a week in an attempt to highlight the tricks I find most useful.

Extend Selection to Previous Region Boundary:  Option+Shift+Tab

This is the converse of last week’s shortcut, Extend Selection to Next Region Boundary.  While I don’t use this shortcut all that much, the principle is the key takeaway.  Adding Option to most commands in Pro Tools will either do the opposite action (instead of adding a marker, it might remove a marker) or reverse the direction of the action, like in this case.
