Default Shortcut to Select Next/Previous Track

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to map a keyboard shortcut to move between tracks?

ie. Next Track & Previous Track similar to the buttons on Axiom Pro only with a Keyboard?

Thanks

H.

Off the top of my head, I believe not. Axiom Pro does this function very well. Ummm... Track Numbers might be a suitable workaround.

Dont have an Axiom.. but to scroll between tracks the (p) and ( keys get you up and down in the edit window... and selects track groups.
and previous selection ( opt-cmmd-z) will get you back to a track so long as you have only done one selection on the current track. ff

Move Edit Selection Up and Down - Keyboard Shortcut P and ; is that the Edit Selection is selected in a track and that Link Track and Edit Selection is enabled. Not always practical.

I often use the Scroll to Track shortcut Cmd-Opt-F (mac), which opens a dialog and you can enter the track number. This works well in combination with the Link Track and Edit Selection enabled. You can then also use the P and ; as previously mentioned to move the selection around. Al

Command Option F is a good one, thanks for that. Is there a shortcut that allows you to select the track that the cursor is already on? I use p l ; ' for moving the cursor frequently, but once I discovered that the track has to be selected to use the new playlist shortcut, command \ I realize I need a select track shortcut too...

Success!
