Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

Weird. Post your complete script and I will have a look. The shift click should work fine. I use such a script (to make a selection from top to end of session) daily and it never fails.

Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

You should not stop or cancel the script when you want further actions to be completed by the script after you renamed the track, instead you'd let the script wait for a certain action to be...

Most of the time I use AppleScript Bundles triggered by FastScripts via keyboard shortcuts but of course you can use any combination that works for you.

Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

Great stuff Henning. Just keep in mind that the script will fail if no track is selected. So an on error check is needed. 😉

Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

Use CliClick (https://www.bluem.net/en/projects/cliclick/), I mentioned this several times within this thread, it helps to avoid the long 6 seconds delays and does a lot of other things.

Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

The AppleScript is triggered once Keyboard Maestro sends the command to do so. How fast or slow you type the hot key shouldn’t matter, unless you use sticky hot keys.

Re: Soft Keys/Macros for rendering Audio Suite

The AppleScript code looks familiar. 😉


You can use AppleScript to wait for the AudioSuite window to open. Much more reliable.

Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

Here's a Keyboard Maestro Macro Group to get you started.

Oliver's Pro Tools Macro Group (https://tinyurl.com/y6oloub5)

Keep in mind that these are macros that just trigger the AppleScripts.

Re: Automation AppleScripts for Pro Tools (Mac)

John,

have you actually read the PDF that comes with the installer?
You basically just run the installer and then execute one of the AppleScripts via KM.

Same OS and PT versions.
