Default Right Clicking Away Notes

I am a Fruityloops originator. I love the simple graphical representation of Pro Tools tho.

The most advantageous attribute of a PC is the duality of its mouse's buttons.

This feature alone reigns superiority over any iOS/MAC compromise ever invented.


The ability to instantly erase notes with the right click of the mouse (as opposed to first selecting them and THEN selecting a command to delete them) made working with Fruityloops a miraculous series of time saving miracles.

This seems to be the only downfall of Pro Tools when compared to Fruityloops.

You may also want to purchase a multi-button mouse and use X-Mouse Button Control as the driver. I have a Logitech M500 7 button USB mouse and it have programmed specifically for Pro Tools as follows:

Right Click = “B” (separate Clip at cursor in Commands Focus mode)

Scroll Wheel Button = “Ctrl + B” (Clear) [Pro Tools on Windows does not allow “Delete” to be programmed to the Scroll Wheel Button, but it allows Alt + Wheel Button to bring up the Bounce Dialogue]

The Back Thumb Button = “+” (plus) on the Numeric Keypad (nudges right by the Nudge Value) [Nudge works on the cursor, selection, clip and automation]

The Front Thumb Button = “-” (minus) on the Numeric Keypad (nudges left by the Nudge Value) [Nudge works on the cursor, selection, clip and automation]

Scroll Right = Right Click

Scroll Left = Delete

YMMV and you can set the buttons for almost any keyboard shortcut in different programs and have up to 5 layers of commands per program.

Cheers,

Is this an intergrated option in ProTools or where do these commands come from?

No: and use X-Mouse Button Control as the driver

Oh. Great suggestion. I'm sure you pretty telepathically create songs with so many commands instantly at your disposal. I definitely will be looking into this option for sure.
