Default most useful PT tip or trick you\'ve learned ?

What's the most useful PT tip or trick you've learned?
from this forum or from any experienced PT user?

You've maybe read the manual a few times, and you're getting comfortable around PT, but then someone surprises you with a neat way to do things that helped you along..

Don't quantize/edit/tune/correct every performance/note just because you can.

Hmmm... Track usage. There is a lot of times when you can have MANY different elements of a song on one track to save room, but there is also many times when you need to isolate a certain aspect of a song on a track, say perhaps, a cowbell.

So, track knowledge is good.

There is a reason I used a cowbell, so we all had the right state of mind.

I can balance my mouse on my nose now...and with no hands!





But seriously...
I'm sure this is common knowledge to many, but to disable or bypass individual plugins:

Bypass- Ctl/Left click on plugin

Disable- Ctl/Right click on plugin
