How to Use Function Keys (aka Hardware Keys) as Triggers – Macro Library – Keyboard Maestro Discourse

Goal : Use the function keys to launch macros but only in RandomApplication. Keep their normal behavior everywhere else.

I keep my function keys defined as function keys on my iMac.

  Open/Close Instrument Plug-in Window of focused Track

This command replaces the need to click on the Instrument slot of the channel strip to open the instrument. It also saves the need to click the close box to make the window vanish.

Assigning this command to a keypress is highly useful. I have combined it with corresponding ‘Open/Close Audio Insert n of focused track’ so I can quickly pop open the plug-ins.
