Thanks for the feedback and the suggestion.
Adding a keyboard shortcut to edit the current mark shouldn’t be a terribly difficult addition. We could make it behave similarly to the Add Mark and Edit function (we may be able to re-purpose the add mark and edit – not sure yet).
I have filed an enhancement request and tentatively queued it up for Anytune iOS 3.12 and Mac 1.3. We expect to have those releases available sometime around the time OS-X 10.10 is released by Apple.

I have to add some further information to clarify my point. I detected that I can easily navigate in the marks list with shortcuts such as Opt-Shift-CursorUp or -Down etc. That is fine. There is also the possibility to click on the mark, to actually select it, and then to hit key <Return> and I can also edit the mark. However, the problem is that navigating in the marks list does not select/activate the current mark. Normally it remains grey and I have first to click on it, exactly what I do not want, or to press key TAB (as I just learned) to accomplish actual selection.
From this follows: Perhaps the entire problem I have could be resolved without a new menu command. All what would be needed is either the automatic full selection/activation of a mark when I navigate with key shortcuts in the marks list. Then Return does what I need. Alternatively, i.e. when the automatic full selection/activation of a mark should not happen when using navigating shortcuts (for more important reasons such as having the wave view active), an edit mode might be necessary, which allows to edit marks of a track more easily by automatically selecting/activating the mark to which the user has navigated.
Any solution possible for this?
P.S.: Of course the third possibility of having a new menu command might still be also a solution.afischlinParticipantSeptember 5, 2014 at 10:20 amPost count: 6#610Topic: Missing shortcut for editing marks, notably loop marks in forum Support and Feedback |
It seems there is not preinstalled shortcut for editing marks. I am notably interested in having one for editing loop marks. Now, it would be easy to if there would be a corresponding menu command. Unfortunately there seems to be none in latest Anytune for Mac v1.2 (or have I overlooked something?). Please introduce one in the next version of Anytune for Mac. Note, the menu command “Marks->Add Mark and Edit” comes close, but is not good enough and works only if I have not yet created the loop mark. What I would need is “Marks->Edit Mark”, which would work with currently selected mark (e.g. when navigating in ‘Marks List’ using menu command “Marks->Select Mark->Mark <i>”).
Thanks for your help and cooperation.Tony WacheskiParticipantApril 28, 2014 at 8:49 amPost count: 100
A little known feature of OS-X is that you can create custom keyboard shortcuts for almost any application, as long as the command you want to do is exposed through a menu item. Here’s how, for example, you could assign a custom keyboard shortcut for the Bass Effects Music EQ preset.
Select the system preferences and choose Keyboard.
- Select the Shortcuts tab
- Select App Shortcuts
- Tap the + button
Select the Application (Anytune) from the drop down list.
Type in the Menu Title that you want to assign to a keyboard shortcut exactly as it appears on your screen, with -> replacing the submenus.
For example, to create a keyboard shortcut for the Music EQ Preset Bass Effects, you would type:
Music->Music EQ Presets->Bass Effects
Enter a keyboard shortcut in the shortcut field
You should then see it show up in the list of keyboard shortcuts listing:
And it will also appear in the menu item in the app:
These steps should work for any Mac app, not just Anytune.Tony WacheskiParticipantApril 23, 2014 at 1:37 pmPost count: 100
Remote Control Pack Overview
Anytune and Anytune Pro+ 3.10 and up provide an optional in app purchase pack that will allow you to remotely control Anytune via MIDI,Bluetooth Keyboard, or other controllers such as an AirTurn BT-105 or PageFlip Cicada.
Anytune (Mac) Keyboard
When using a Bluetooth Keyboard, select the Anytune (Mac) Keyboard profile. Once selected, you can use the keyboard shortcuts found here:
Keyboard Cheat Sheet for Anytune (Mac) 2.0 and Anytune 4.0
When using an AirTurn BT-105, you can choose to use the AirTurn in Profile 2 or Profile 3 (iPad) modes. Once you have selected a mode, you can assign what command you would like Anytune to perform when the corresponding pedal is pressed. Anytune supports up to 4 ports with the AirTurn. Depending upon what hardware you have, you may only be able to use the first 2 ports.
Port 1 : Keypress 1
Port 2 : Keypress 2
Port 3 : Keypress 3
Port 4 : Keypress 4
Port 1 : Keypress Up Arrow
Port 2 : Keypress Left Arrow
Port 3 : Keypress Down Arrow
Port 4 : Keypress Right Arrow
AirTurn DIGIT II
An AirTurn DIGIT II can be used with Anytune. Set the Anytune Remote Control Profile to ‘AirTurn Profile 3’ and set the DIGIT mode to ‘Presenter 1 / Mode 2’.
The New AirTurn PED is also compatible with Anytune Remote Control; but only with BlueTooth SMART READY devices. Set the Anytune Remote Control Profile to ‘Up/Down Arrow‘ with the PED in Mode 2 (default), or ‘Left/Right Arrow’ with the PED in Mode 3. Check out our PED FAQ.
The PageFlip Cicada supports a Left/Right arrow mode or an Up/Down arrow mode. Anytune will work with either. Once you have selected a mode, you can assign what command you would like Anytune to perform when the corresponding pedal is pressed. Anytune supports up to 2 ports with the PageFlip Cicada.
It is entirely possible that there are other bluetooth foot pedals or controllers that will work fine with Anytune. If they can transmit key presses that are similar to one of the existing AirTurn or PageFlip profiles, then they should also work with the Anytune Remote Control Pack.Tony WacheskiParticipantApril 23, 2014 at 1:14 pmPost count: 100
Here is the keyboard cheat sheet for the current version of Anytune iOS (3.11) and Mac (1.2) releases.

TIP! You can also create or assign your own Mac custom keyboard shortcuts by following the steps outlined here.Tony WacheskiParticipantJuly 20, 2013 at 8:03 amPost count: 100
We’ve had requests to support a number of different bluetooth devices, the keyboard being one of them (amongst some more specific hardware like the Airturn). I can definitely see the value, now that we’ve been building and testing the Mac version and keyboard shortcuts can be a huge win for productivity…Sean.MtaubarJakMemberJuly 19, 2013 at 3:13 pmPost count: 7
I’ll look forward to hopefully seeing a development or two once you have your Mac port up and running.
One additional thought: I wondered if it might be relatively quick and easy to add keyboard shortcuts for those of us who have Bluetooth keyboards: things like ‘toggle left hand column’ and ‘toggle looped playback’, ‘drop marker’, ‘Set A loop cue’, ‘Set B loop end’ are all the kind of things that really suit a tap on a physical keyboard when there is one available. I have no real insight into iOS development but it struck me as something which might require less custom coding than many other features due to key input being such a fundamental function.MtaubarJakMemberJuly 17, 2013 at 12:32 amPost count: 7
I have just read all the documentation for your excellent app and discovered just how rich the feature set is. It really is a great piece of work that has clearly had a lotnof dedication and thought put into it.
My feature request is for some kind of shortcut gesture to toggle the left-hand songs/marks column (currently there is a small ‘Songs’ button which becomes ‘Hide’ when the songs are visible).
My perfect functionality would be a special gesture on the big waveform, say a two or three finger tap. That would really speed up regular moves I make between audiomarks (and also naming of such marks), as for such constant on/off toggling the ‘Songs/Hide’ buttons are rather small and, being at top left, quite far away from the grouped control buttons for AB/Speed & Pitch/Playback. I’d love to be able to ‘two finger tap – choose new saved loop or mark – two finger tap – straight back to work’
I appreciate it is much easier to request features that it is to implement them, although I hope this one might potentially take less work to implement than most!
