Mercado_Negro, that is very cool! Much fancier than the one I cobbled together.

I had the Xenakios and SWS extensions, but not the most recent one from X.

I need to look at some of the actions you used more closely. Some very interesting stuff in there.

Thanks for the reply!

Hmmm.... is there an action that would insert an 'empty' take into a multi-take item?

Or do the equivalent?

I built a macro for it but surprisingly empty items CAN'T be pasted to multitake items... weird!

Mercato, this works here with the ordinary 'implode selected items into takes'. I assume this question is about including an empty MIDI item into an existing take item (why would one create an empty audio item), maybe you confused 'empty item' with 'new MIDI item'? Happened to me at least.

Assumed that the multitake item and the track is selected, the macro could be:

Time selection: Set time selection to selected items
Insert new MIDI item
Item: Select all items in selected tracks in current time selection
Take: Implode items on same track into takes

Of course one can implement SWS's save/restore time selection, was too lazy.

Hello gofer!

Look at it here:

Don't use the 'empty item' these are just placeholders. I edited my previous post.

well, it all depends on Marah Mag... if you need an empty MIDI item then it's ok like gofer says but if you need and empty item then it can't be done as far as I can tell

Thanks gofer, have a nice day!

NOTE: If you want you can add "SWS: Save time selection, slot X" at the beginning of the macro and "SWS: Restore time selection, slot X" at the end

You're completely right Tallis! hehe Marah Mag, look, your macro can look like this:



You can remove "Unset free item positioning" if you don't use FIPM on your tracks.

Haven't looked at all the most recent posts here yet...

What I was thinking about, with my question about empty items, was the possibility of swapping in an empty item in the same position as a deleted take (or the 'extracted' take as per the original version of my macro in #122.)

That way, you could delete a particular take from a multi take item, and not have the other items automatically renamed/renumbered, because the total number of takes, and their order, would remain the same.

The renaming/renumbering is an annoyance when working with takes. That's what I was trying to find a workaround for. But it would have to be pretty automatic... wouldn't want to have to pre-select the empty.

PS. Mercado Negro, what are you using to generate the animated gifs? Thanks!

Heres my macro, preview next dynamic split items. After you dynamic split an item you may want to preview each slice to make sure it sounds good and is ready to be dropped into a sampler. Heres the macro.

Item navigation: select and move to next item
Time selection: set time selection to selected items
Transport: play

If you want you can also add a previous one too just replace the first action with item navigation: select and move to previous item. There you go, and I have it mapped to num pad 3 and the previous one mapped to num pad 1.

"***EDIT: Selection on Top of items with Left-Click Drag***

My eternal search here has proven fruitful...I had another go at this and lo, it works and it's accurate!

I mapped it to Q, you just press Q once (no holding), then Left-Click and drag on top of items. It obeys snap, so just toggle snap when you need to (I map that to A).

You can also use Q to place the cursor, and just hit escape to kill the loop selection.

*This works a lot easier than the current default, Ctrl Right-Click-Drag...and no need for a script either!

*Make sure the box in Options-Preferences-Editing Behaviour-'Move edit cursor to start of loop selection on loop selection change' is checked.
"

How does this work? for me it only just moves the playhead and selection to the mouse position. CLicking and dragging does not affect time selection.

If you want to loop just the audio portion of an item this works most of the time.

Default Full screen editing action

Tallisman made me a great macro to lock everything except on the track you want to edit and make that track bigger.

I have taken that and made it so the track you want to edit fills the screen - it closes the docker (won't work so good if you have, say, the mixer floating - but then you can always then just close it).

Looks like this:



Works best on a single track but can work quite well with two adjacent tracks. Fiddly for more than one track where they are not adjacent.

You sometimes have to run it twice to get the full screen thing - don't know why. Oh and it closes any envelope lanes you have open for the selected track/s so as to get the selected track in the full screen (you can take that action out if you don't like it):



and then this to return to an overview and unlock all items again - this opens any envelope lanes for selected track so again you can get rid of that if you want:



Keymap here: https://stash.reaper.fm/tag/Key-Maps (ctrl-shift-e and ctrl-shift-r)

Please by all means improve and share.

Very nice. Thanks, Tallisman and Spike.

I've wanted a zoom in/out thing like this for a while.

I'll stress test it later.

PS. It would be nice if the Edit Custom Action window would let you bypass steps, and also step through a sequence one by one.

the first thing i did when i opened the action window the first time was to assing " K " to the window in question. it is very useful to have a direct shortcut because i always end up creating, or searching for, a key command.

Thank you everyone for your amazing macros especially Bevoss for all your hard work and for sharing it all....


Ive been trying Bevoss's macro below which is outstanding but you cant simply copy a section using the overview which is a real shame. Is there a macro I could use to select items in a group directally under the selected item?


Ok I did it my first macro

SWS : Select children of selected folder track(s)
Item navigation : move courser left to edge of courser
Loop points : set start point
Item navigation : move courser right edge of courser
Loop points : set end point
Item : select all items in selected tracks in time selection

Bevoss I couldn't find any loop selection actions i.e. loop selected item(s) hence the long way round. Ware do I find these actions

Apply a Muted Overview to a Drum Folder:

This renders a mix of the folder, mutes it, and places it on the Folder track. You can then group the folder and child tracks, minimize the folder, and edit the folder track as you wish, which edits all the tracks. This is very useful for editing drum tracks, slicing up beats, or just hiding the child tracks and still seeing where you are.

Because of the 6 action limit, I had to spread this over 2 macros.

Ctrl-Shift-O

Track: render selected tracks to stem tracks (and mute/bypass originals)
Item: select all items in selected tracks
Item edit: move items down one track
Track: go to next track
Track: toggle fx bypass for selected tracks
Track: mute/unmute selected tracks

Ctrl-Shift-P

Item properties: toggle items mute
Item navigation: select and move to item in previous track
Track: cut selected tracks
Item navigation: select and move to item in next track
Item navigation: select and move to item in previous track

Ahhh that's an old one, you have unlimited actions now. I'm pretty sure I already consolidated that one, let me have a look.

Default New Drum Overview Grouped

Here's an updated keymap for a Drum Overview Grouped...it renders a muted item to the folder track, which is automatically grouped with the child track items.

So, whatever you do to the overview with splitting/editing etc is also done to the child tracks...pretty cool!

Here's the map: https://stash.reaper.fm/oldsb/174298/...ew-Grouped.rar

Unrar the file, then press the (?) key for the actions window, press import, choose Drum Overview Grouped.ReaperKeyMap...it's mapped to Ctrl-Alt-F10 as is, change that to whatever you want.

Here's the actual macro:

Its great but it dose not let you manipulate the tracks as you would "hard disk edits" because the group functions in reaper doesn't let you copy unless items are selected . splits seem to confuse reaper as to whats grouped etc.

Hears a couple of macros I've been playing with which let you do "hard disc edits" on a folder track and its contents.(no grouping necessary) using your drum overview macro first of coarse to provide the overview track to edit. You could use this to do a complete rearrange of a project I think but haven't tried .

Folder cut w

Hover the mouse above ware you want to cut ,press w .
Cuts all tracks in folder inline with mouse cursor and selects items on right. .

Item : select item under cursor
View : move edit cursor to mouse cursor
Item : Split item at edit cursor
SWS : Save loop selection to slot 1
SWS : Select children of selected folder track(s)
Item navigation : move courser left to edge of courser
Loop points : set start point
Item navigation : move courser right edge of courser
Loop points : set end point
Item : select all items in selected tracks in time selection
Item : Split item at edit cursor (select right)
SWS : Restore loop selection slot 1


Folder item select: F
Hover over item to be manipulated, press F. Selects item under mouse cursor and selects all items directly inline, in folder. You can then manipulate as before (Copy repeat move shorten change pitch etc)(no grouping necessary and if you use the cut tool above you'll be able to perform beat mashups with ease.

Item : select item under cursor
View : move edit cursor to mouse cursor
SWS : Save loop selection to slot 1
SWS : Select children of selected folder track(s)
Item navigation : move courser left to edge of courser
Loop points : set start point
Item navigation : move courser right edge of courser
Loop points : set end point
Item : select all items in selected tracks in time selection
SWS : Restore loop selection slot 1

To glue just glue overview track only.

Is there a way I can get automation to copy with items in this manner?

p.s. What do you use to show your screen captures

Thanks Bevosss for your reply you really are the king of macros

Sorry to keep asking questions but since finding these macros my reaper experience is so much more gratifying.

Is there a way I can render the stem track for reign between the loop markers? I've looked in the action list under render but couldn't spot the command.

I'd like to alter the drum overview so it acts like this as I'm now mixing all my drums down to wav on there own tracks in one folder then using the drum overview to perform edits I don't use the groups but the macros above . After I've edited the drums up I often want to take a new overview of the loop I'm working in (really fast way to rearrange or remix whole arrangements) I've also altered it so it doesn't toggle the effects.

Thanks again Jed

No, that's a long time request actually. Mercado_Negro made a macro that worked for him, but didn't for me for some reason...you might try that, give him a pm.

Btw I use Shup for screenshots, it's very easy to use.

Default Render Selected Area

How strange, I actually seem to have got a macro working now for this!

I haven't given it extensive testing, but give it a try, it seems to work every time here so far.

https://stash.reaper.fm/oldsb/174856/...ected-Area.rar

Stereo Render of Selected Area = Ctrl-Shift-R

Mono Render of Selected Area = Ctrl-Shift-Alt-R

I hope it works for you! Modify as you want (NB: do NOT consolidate undo points, or it will screw right up),

I threw glue in because it wouldn't work properly for more than 1 item on the same track, and anything could happen on other user's systems when using undo trickery...but so far here, so good!

Here's a couple of my macros:

Toggle record arm for all tracks: (Ctrl+*)

Track: select all tracks
Track: toggle record arm for selected track(s)
Track: unselect all tracks

Insert new tempo at every measure: (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C)

Move edit cursor to start of current measure
Action: set action loop start
Markers: Insert time signature / tempo change marker at edit cursor
Move edit cursor to start of next measure
Action: Prompt to go to action loop start

Expand time selection: (Ctrl+Alt+.)

Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right

Contract time selection: (Ctrl+Alt+,)

Time Selection: Nudge left edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge left

Note: this is gonna be slow, so you can instantiate several of these stacks together. I recommend having two sets of these commands: normal (this), and fast:

Expand time selection fast: (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+.)

Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right

Likewise for Contract time selection fast (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+,)


For MIDI Editor, I have one real good.

Load Drum Map: (Ctrl+L for me)

Load note names from file
Mode: Drum Map
View: Show events as triangles (drum mode)
View: Hide unused and unnamed note rows

Is that actually possible, to use the Windows key (or any key at all) as an extra modifier? That would be awesome. But I'm unable to make that happen. The Windows key is always intercepted by the Start menu.

Having additional modifiers would be huge enhancement. So would being able to set multi-level assignments, eg, Ctrl+Alt+R followed by a second specifier... Ctrl+Alt+R, T.

Absolutely ... and for example to be able to use Caps Lock as a modifier would open up a grillion more opportunities ...

You can do this (and also use the Windows key) with AutoHotKey, but that then means having two separate sets of actions/macros in two different environments ... unless with AHK you can find a way to pass modifiers like CapsLock and Windows across to be used directly by the host application, i.e., within Reaper's Actions window ... don't know of any way but I must investigate ...

This is a shot of the key-assign tab for the Digital Voice Editor sw that comes with Sony's digital voice recorders. When the "transcribing keys" are enabled, you can use the Win key as a modifier for all the usual primary keys. When enabled, these key combinations can be used from with any program to control the Sony sw (eg, start and stop playback for transcription while staying inside a word processor.)

Based on this, it seems that the Win key could indeed be used (at least on its own) as another modifier.



I've downloaded AHK a number of times over the years (pre-Reaper and post) but have never really taken to it... the "two different environments" that you mention.

Custom menus, in 3.13pre6, will also extend assignability to commands and actions/macros. Yay!

Reaper is probably the most customizable specialty app I've ever used. Rock on JCS, SWS, and Xenakios.

Some of these are great but i dont want to use them all as they override some of my key commands. is there a way of loading only the ones i want?

Indirectly, yes. Basic steps:

First, use the Export command on the Actions dialog and choose the Export All option. That's your 'current' set.

Then, open the set that contains macros that you want to use. Select the macros you want (one at a time or collectively), then Export them using the 'Export selected items' option. This is the 'selected' set. (You can edit the key-assignments of these before exporting.)

Then, import the 'current' set, then import the 'selected' set on top of those.

Not too elegant, but as far as I know that's the only way to do it. Would be nice if the import process could prompt for conflicting assignments.

Move edit cursor to start of current measure

Move edit cursor to start of next measure
Action: Prompt to go to action loop start

Expand time selection: (Ctrl+Alt+.)

Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right

Contract time selection: (Ctrl+Alt+,)

Time Selection: Nudge left edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge left

Note: this is gonna be slow, so you can instantiate several of these stacks together. I recommend having two sets of these commands: normal (this), and fast:

Expand time selection fast: (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+.)

Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge left edge left
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right
Time Selection: Nudge right edge right

Likewise for Contract time selection fast (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+,)


For MIDI Editor, I have one real good.

Load Drum Map: (Ctrl+L for me)

Load note names from file
Mode: Drum Map
View: Show events as triangles (drum mode)
View: Hide unused and unnamed note rows



more than 6 actions in a macro, available only with extensions, yes ?
