Default Keyboard shortcuts for automation?

Hi! I'm doing post for swedish television. When working with automation I try to use faders as much as possible. But before touching the faders I have to do a lot of mousing setting average levels, gain etc. I think this puts a lot of strain on the wrist and arm. Drawing automation hurts my arm worse than doing basic audio editing.

When drawing automation I'm dropping keyframes and then raising or lowering the selection. Is there a way to do this using the keyboard? For instance typing a value or maybe keys for up and down.

I hope I'm making myself clear. Some advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

/Calle

check the manual for glide automation and snapshot automation, this may help your wrists?

Baris is right, snapshot automation will save you thousands of clicks and drags.

But you should also consider a Wacom tablet if your wrist hurts. I stopped using a mouse in 2004 and never looked back. Buy a Bamboo Fun to start with. You might love it.

Best,
