Default insertion follows playback

gee, wouldn't it be nice if there was a button on the procontrol that controlled insertion follows playback? wouldn't it be even better if that button lit up to indicate which mode it was in? like maybe if I could reassign a button that I never use (like "audition") to do that?

yes yes yes !

Being able to switch rapidly from "insertion follows playback" to the other modes would be great since this has great impact on the way ProTools behaves.

Great suggestion

Technically speaking, there already is a shortcut key that achieves this. If you have command key focus turned on, the "N" key on your keyboard toggles the Insertion Follows... mode.

Now, that isn't to say that I wouldn't love to see a key on Edit Pack that lights up to give immediate reporting of this mode, but at least there is a single key that sets it instead of navigating through the Preferences window.

Prior to using the command key focus, I had a Quickey programmed to achieve the same result. That would be another potential solution.

Thanks for the feedback !

although I have RTFM from cover to cover god knows how many times for the past year I haven't got to using command key focus yet, nor the quickey feature. Guess I will have to roam around the manual again !
Thanks again

Weird huh? I really resisted Command Key Focus when it was introduced...don't really know why. I think I felt a certain amount of pride in being able to operate the software pretty efficiently after using it for so many years "as-is" or with using third-party add-ons like Quickeys.

But, I have to admit, once I started looking at it closely and realized that there were several things that I could do with Command Key Focus turned on that I couldn't do without, I began to get turned on to it.

For example, here's another good one - moving your insertion point or an entire selection *vertically* from one track to another. It can be done with Pro Control easily, but it can also be done within the software only - as long as you have Command Key Focus turned on. That one has made a huge impact on the way I work - copying and pasting sections of automation for example.

Anyway, check it out if you get the chance.

Gives a new perspective on a piece of software that we have all been using similarly for several years!

All the best,
