Default Shortcuts for PT's

We are going to be using a PT rig the next 2 weeks for virtual soundcheck and recording of our Christmas show. I'd like to have everything ready to go for tonight but can't remember the key command shortcut that sets up the PT stuff to the D Show so the track line up 1 to 1 but can't remember what it is. A bit of help would be greatly appreciated

Default Re: Shortcuts for PT's

Hi Scott,

God question, that's easily one of the most powerful key combos there is for VENUE folks using Pro Tools. Here goes:
1) Select the range of tracks for which you want to set the I/O assignment
2) Hold the three modifier keys (CTRL+ALT+SHIFT on Win, SHIFT+OPTION+Apple on Mac)
3) Select the starting I/O for the first track; the rest will automatically follow

1) Select tracks 1-16
2) Hold the three mod keys
3) On track 1 choose "HDx1 1"
Result: tracks 1-16 are assigned to HDx1 1 to 16 in sequence.

Another handy tip:
To quickly restore the default "HDx..." path names on the I/O Setup window simply delete any existing Input/Output paths then press the "Default" button.
