Default The Useful Macro Thread

** I added a Default Macro Keymap already set up to try out!**

...and a PDF Help File...just drop it in Program Files/REAPER, and you can access it from the help menu.

MACROS

Here's a few useful macros I've come up with or collected, hopefully you guys can use some of them. I'll put a keymap up for these eventually so users can load it and quickly try them out... I'll bump this thread again when it's up. Enjoy!


(Caveat - Some of these may depend on my preference settings, ie I set the cursor to go to the start of loop selections when changed, in Prefs-Audio-Playback-seek on loop selection change, & only when repeat is enabled)

***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.




*Tracks/Folders*


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



Freeze Selected Tracks

This automatically applies fx to items in a track, and offlines and bypasses the fx.

Ctrl-Alt-A

Item: select all items in selected tracks
Item: apply fx to items
Track: set all fx offline for selected tracks
Track: toggle fx bypass for selected tracks

Unfreeze Selected Tracks

This unfreezes the track.

Ctrl-Alt-U

Item: select all items in selected tracks
Item: delete current take from items
Track: set all fx online for selected tracks
Track: toggle fx bypass for selected tracks


Apply FX Destructively as a New Take

This is to apply new fx to a track and render it, without affecting the present fx. It moves the file to a new track, applies the fx, and places it back on the original track again. You can reverse the process using the Unfreeze Macro.

Alt-F9

Track: insert new track
Item edit: move items down one track
View -> show fx browser window
Now you select the fx, tweak it to taste, and continue…

Alt-F10

Item: apply fx to items
Item edit: move items up one track
Track: cut selected track



Auto-Render of VSTi Multi Folder Outputs

I designed this after recording V-drums into Reaper using DFH EZ Drummer in a folder. After editing the midi, I then wanted to render the audio for the multiple outputs, and bypass the VSTi. This automates the process.

Shift-Alt-R

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: remove selected tracks
Track: unmute all tracks


Duplicate Item on Tracks

This is for quick repeat pasting of items (if you don’t have the cursor move while pasting by default in preferences… I don’t)

Ctrl-D

Item navigation: move cursor right to edge of item
Edit-> copy items (depending on focus)
Item: paste items (depending on focus)



Duplicate Tracks without Items

Alt-Shift-D

Track: duplicate selected tracks
Item: select all items in selected tracks
Item: remove selected items

Duplicate Tracks - Shift-D (single keystroke)


*Zoom*


Zoom Items

Point the mouse at the items you want to zoom in on, hit Z, and it will enlarge it to fit the screen. The tracks must be least 2 sizes larger than minimum, which is where the Reverse Zoom leaves you, ready to auto-zoom another item.

Bump ... still waiting ...

But seriously, this is a great idea and will be much appreciated. I'd like to use it to add a section near the end of the User Guide on Sample Macros (credited of coures to the Macro Maestro)

Yeah sorry Nicholas, I've been rewriting a few with the new actions and trying out different combinations, plus doing some recording.

I'll post it when it's ready in the first post, and give it a bump. Who would know we'd suddenly get all these incredibly useful new actions?

Ha, I just want it right first time...and it'll take a while to set the commands up, I have some long macros.

And also, I keep thinking of new ones. But it will happen.

It's even better with Crosshair...(a freeware download that works on any screen, togglable)...the precision is awesome!

I'm happy you found it useful Shan.

Dude...I had know idea we had this amount of control! This one rocks for me modified slightly. The Pro Toolers will like this one but it works better in Reaper because you just have to hover your mouse over the area that you want to apply the split to:

Shortcut: B

Actions:

Item: select item under mouse cursor
View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item(s): split items at edit or play cursor
Item: Unselect All Items

A few more for the PT guys who need the speed and still wanna feel at home. The advantage of these, is that you just have to hover the mouse over the area you wish to apply the action then hit the shortcut key as apposed to clicking the area, then applyng the shortcut key. Your editing will fly with this method. I'll include both PT and Reaper lingo:

Trim Start to Insertion/Trim items left of cursor

Shortcut: A

Actions:

Item: select item under mouse cursor
View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item: Trim items left of cursor
Item: Unselect All Items

Trim End to Insertion/Trim items right of cursor

Shortcut: S

Actions:

Item: select item under mouse cursor
View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item: Trim items right of cursor
Item: Unselect All Items

Fade to Start (available if no selection)/Fade items into cursor

Shortcut: D

Actions:

Item: select item under mouse cursor
View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item: Fade items into cursor
Item: Unselect All Items

Fade to End (available if no selection)/Fade items out from cursor

Shortcut: G

Actions:

Item: select item under mouse cursor
View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item: Fade items out from cursor
Item: Unselect All Items

Separate/Split item(s) at edit or play cursor

Shortcut: B

Actions:

Item: select item under mouse cursor
View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item: Split item(s) at edit or play cursor
Item: Unselect All Items

Ha, I have those partially but forgot to include them! I was getting pretty tired towards the end of that list... Nice mods, I have U assigned to unselect all items anyway, so I just hit that whenever I need to...I don't mind having an item selected somewhere, gives me a point to navigate from with the selected item navigation actions I assigned to the arrow keys. Others would definitely prefer yours!

Did you see this 'true' split tool here?

Just for when you want the cursor to stay put while you split.

I'll check this one out. Here is another modified one for speed editing. Still working on this one:

Edit Selection(modified)

Shortcut: F1

Actions:

Item: select item under mouse cursor
View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Loop Selection: Set start point

Shortcut: F2

Actions:

View: move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Loop Selection: Set end point

Nice impovement! It's great to have some more ideas here, the logic will surely flow...thanks! That one's better for selection on items (I have that on F3/4), my original one is aimed at just straight looping, a little faster for that with snap enabled.

Default Group Folder tracks Kinda like ableton

Dont know if i am reinventing the wheel with this one but i had to make it so though it would share.


Lets say you do a 4 pass recording of a vocal. (repeated in order to layer them) You then explode those 4 passes to different tracks.

You want to then put those 4 tracks in a folder. With a main empty track at the beginning.

I have this assigned to the shortcut Ctrl-F

To use simply highlight the tracks you want in a folder.. Press ctrl-f, (or whatever key you assign) and it creates an emptry track at beginning of selection and then puts the remaining tracks in that folder.

Cheers

nice one, i think i might put this in my right click menu. "Place selected Track(s) in new folder"

could maybe even go fancy and have multiple ones for multiple icons.

Bevosss, have you ever tried AutoHotKey? I've just been exploring it and so far it's a great app. It might come in handy with some of these super macros.

... which, unless I'm mistaken, I put you on to

Did you get my PM about this? It would be good if you could give us some help/input into the AHK section I'm writing for the User Guide. Your understanding and experience in these areas would be most valuable.

Default Thank you Bevosss!!

The freeze macro is just what I've been looking for. I haven't tried it yet (at work), but it seems it will eliminate stemming and extra wave files, right? If so you made my day!

Yes...the 'render to stems' action is better for folder tracks, where there is no media on the track eg vsti's. There will still be a new wav file in your project from the 'apply fx' action however. You need file - clean project to get rid of them automatically.

Default Snap Offset

For the PT users who use the Control+Comma(,) to Identify Sync Point. The equivalent in REAPER is the Snap Offset. This command will do the exact same except toggle it off:



To toggle the Sync Point/Snap Offset off, select the Item(Region) and use the following:

Default Freeze Macro Set

*** UPDATE

use the download above, it's working in Reaper beta3 (May 12 2009)

** also, the freeze.dll has been replaced by sws.exe (which combined all his separate plugins and self-installs)



NB: You need REAPER 2.52 or later version installed, for Item Freeze to work.
Check 'Do not process muted tracks' in Reaper\Preferences\Audio.
************************************************** ************************************************** *********

This is a macro keymap for using freeze in Reaper. It includes a fast and simple freeze for track items, and a full freeze for all track types (Normal/Folder/Child/Buss).

Both types of freeze are fully restorable, and you can also toggle the state off/on while frozen...unfreezing also deletes the source file to the recycle bin. Neither unfreeze action should delete your original files.

************************************************** ************************************************** *********


Download the FreezePak, and follow the instructions.

Install SWS.exe and put Reaper_Xenakios_Commands.dll in Reaper\Plugins, THEN start Reaper.


Place Freeze.ReaperKeymap in Reaper\Keymaps

Press shift-/ (?), click on import, doubleclick Freeze.ReaperKeymap

(then press asterix (*) to see only the Freeze shortcuts...they fit with REAPER's default mapping)

(the same keymap without assigned shortcuts is supplied also for experienced mappers - Freeze_(no_shortcuts).ReaperKeyMap)


Select the track(s) to freeze, and then:

1. Choose either a fast Item Freeze (uses 'apply fx' for simple tracks with items), or

2. Choose a slower, comprehensive Track Freeze (works on ALL track types, normal/folder/child/buss, except those with pre/post fx sends)


Track Freeze:


Press Alt-Shift-F to Track Freeze a stereo track.

Press Alt-Shift-M to Track Freeze a mono track.


Press D to set Track Freeze off (for comparison)

Press F to set Track Freeze on again.


Press Alt-Shift-Delete to Unfreeze the selected track, which deletes the frozen rendered take(s) to the recycle bin.



Item Freeze:


Press Ctrl-Shift-F to Item Freeze a stereo track.

Press Ctrl-Shift-M to Item Freeze a mono track.


Press W to set Item Freeze off (for comparison)

Press E to set Item Freeze on again.


Press Ctrl-Shift-Delete to Unfreeze the selected track items, which deletes the frozen rendered take(s) to the recycle bin.







************************************************** ************************************************** **************************

** (special thanks to SWS, Xenakios and Mercado_Negro for their vision, input and plugin coding)

Default Create a Folder Above, Containing the Selected Tracks

Quote:
This macro creates a folder above the first selected track...just select the tracks you want to put in the folder, hit Ctrl-Alt-F, and it places them in a folder above, in native auto-rename mode.

The zip file attached contains the plugins and macro required. Close Reaper, place the plugins into Reaper\Plugins, open Reaper and import the above named keymap (mapped to Ctrl-Alt-F).
The zip file contains the minimum plugins required (Xenakios_Commands and Freeze).

https://stash.reaper.fm/v/1988/CREATE...D%20TRACKS.zip

or,

Oh yeah...thanks again to sws and xenakios, the coolest coders north of Cockos!

I am getting a crash in 3.0 final release with stereo freeze track even with the above download. Item freeze item stereo works. Any help?

[EDIT] Whoops, a reboot after all the installations solved the issue!! My bad.

"***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.

Default Unfreeze Special

I was having problems because I always edit Items after freezing tracks, the problem is that if you want to get back (Unfreeze) a popup will come up telling you that everything that you have done to items is now lost.

As I love the Freeze feature, I created a macro which will let me preserve everything that I do to the track(s) lane (add more items, edit, take volume envelope changes, everything) when that/those track(s) is/are unfrozen.

You just have to make sure your items are unlocked before.

My freeze feature is a little different because it adds an icon to my frozen tracks.

that is why you will see a remove icon action in this macro..

Hope you njoy..

Macro detailed in screenshot.

the idea is fantastic and I'm curious as hell how you created this, but don't see any way to get the macro. no link in your message and it's not on the Stash "Custom Actions" page either.
