View Full Version : MOTU Mach 5 V3 PlugIn Shortcut Keys

04-10-2013, 01:04 AM

I'm using MOTU Mach 5 sampler as an RTAS plug-in in Pro Tools 9 on Mac Snow Leopard.

In Mach5 standalone mode, I'm able to use keyboard shortcut keys but when using it as a plug-in, they don't work and I'm guessing that's because they're intercepted by Pro Tools itself.

Anyone know any way of getting them working?

Ok, so I did some more testing tonight. What I found was that in a completely new session with nothing in the Pro tools copy / paste buffer, the shortcuts worked. Soon as I do something in Pro tools itself, then the Copy / Paste shortcuts are intercepted by Pro Tools even though you have the Plug In window active. So, since Mach5 is responding to shortcuts then this has to be a Pro Tools issue in that it doesn't forward the key presses to the active Plug In window.

Surely, this means that shortcut keys don't work in any Plug In. Anyone else noticed this?

Someone, anyone?

Someone from Avid must know whether shortcut keys in plug-ins are supported
