For users of both programs, how do you manage your shortcuts? Do you use each program's respective shortcuts or you made yourself a set of shortcuts that respond to the same kind of actions in both programs? If that's the case, was your starting point: The Reaper shortcuts or the S1 shortcuts?

I do use both, but as time goes on, I'm using S1 almost 100%.

I sort of knew that going into S1 as I really liked Reaper, but was looking into another DAW so I didn't want to hang on to Reapers way of doing things. So you could say that was my starting point. Now, if I had a lot of usable work from Reaper, I may have kept Reapers short-cut flow in mind.

So then going forward with S1 in the beginning, I really embraced (don't laugh) a lot of my already known PT shortcuts, since I could alter them in S1.

Only now, a lot of the S1 commands make sense I guess through just using the program a lot.

Point being, use the shortcuts you think you will be most comfortable with, and as time goes on, morph those commands as you need to. A good thing.

Once I started using S1, I actually altered some of Reaper's key commands to reflect those in S1 (stuff like the "W" and "E" size functions, etc. I don't use Reaper that much anymore because S1 feels more intuitive - to my mind, anyway. It also has a better default toolbar.

Please Stand By — something clever is on the way! (Wait, I think I have something):
There are no keyboard shortcuts to replace the manual inputting of our creativity, dedication or experience.

For some things maybe, but after spending most of this week trying to identify what I could map with my hardware controller, one thing I realized is that S1 practically chains you to your screen and mouse, hence diminishing by a good margin the usefulness of the controller in mixing with your ears and not your eyes.

Here's an example. In Reaper, you have the following command available: "View FX chain for current track". Once it's open, you can navigate through the plugins inserted on your track via the arrow keys and close that FX chain via the ESC key. All this can be mapped. I've searched, but I have yet to find a way to do that using the keyboard with S1. But at least, all this searching and testing made me discover a potential flaw in Control Link, which I'll probably post in another thread.

I'm still trying to find out what I can and cannot map that are in common between Reaper and S1. As the "Manual" thread mention, all the omissions in the manual are not making my job any easier that's for sure.

Page Up/Down Skip (CTL+Page Up/Down) will cycle through the plugin tabs, select plugin tabs.

Alt+Page Up/Down will cycle through presets.

First thing Mike, you're not paid nearly enough for doing Presonus' job.

Thanks for the plugin tabs shortcuts. Unfortunately, the plugin window needs to be open to be able to use them. Do you know if there is a shortcut to open that window for track X? If there is none, I'll see if I can find a workaround for the controller.

Edit:

Found it (Thank you bathmutz and the search button). It's F11 but from the description in the shortcuts page, which is "Open Channel Editor", I would never have guessed it.
