In this video, I want to show you some of the most essential keyboard shortcuts,…as well as some of my personal favorites.…First, let's start with the essentials.…The Spacebar--easiest one: use it for playing and for stopping.…(Music playing.)…On a Mac, you can press Command+Spacebar for recording.…Now you may have to disable the Spotlight key command, so Pro Tools can use this command.…On a PC, you can use Ctrl+Spacebar.…Probably you're most used keyboard command will be undo.…
You can get it from the Edit menu, but you will probably just want to use…Command+Z on a Mac, or Ctrl+Z in Windows.…Then your next favorite will probably be the Save command: Command+S on a Mac…or Ctrl+S in Windows.…I would recommend getting to know the Function keys.…The first four Function keys--1, 2, 3, and 4--will take you through the Edit…modes. The next six will take us through the Edit tools, Function 5 for Zoomer,…6 for the Trimmer, 7 for Selector, 8 for the Grabber, 9 for the Scrubber, and 10…for the Pencil tool.…
