Default Audio Zoom In and Audio Zoom Out Shortcut

5 minutes on Google hasn't helped so now I must ask this here:

Is there a shortcut for increasing or decreasing the vertical zoom level of waveforms in Pro Tools to see really quiet passages?

Thanks but this isn't working for me.

To be clear, I'm trying to zoom in the waveform so that it becomes inflated so I can view low level audio stuff.

I'm not asking to make the track larger.

Audio Zoom In and Audio Zoom Out is what it's called when I do it manually.

T= zoom in, R= zoom out

Then T and R, as zoff says, to zoom in and out. If you want to enlarge vertically, you have to also enlarge the track which is ctrl+ up and down arrows.

I'm talking about increasing the size of the waveform, similar to how Clip Gain might do but without affecting the audio level.

I'm aware that R & T are used to zoom in and out but this is not what I'm referring to.

There is another form of zooming that can be done by using the tool bar, but I am hoping there is a shortcut for it. It doesn't involve changing the track size, it just makes the waveforms more blown up so you can see quiet stuff.

See the screen shot.

And that is what I told you how to do in post #2. That is exactly what command+option+ square bracket does. That does Audio Zoom In and Out

And the other setting of command+ square bracket does the other part of that section of tools: Horizontal Zoom In and Out.

That is why they are one modifier key away from each other.

Set your zoom presets . Upper right corner of the edit window is the waveform and midi enlarge buttons. Left and right click to get the size you want then save it as a zoom preset.
