In adobe there is the ability to assign your plugins to keyboard shortcuts. Huge timesaver. no need navigating the plugin folders for our most common FX. I want to be able to assign FX chains to a shortcut key as well.

To be clear, I am concerned with clip based effects not track mixer inserts or sends.


-Highlight audio clip

-Keyboard shortcut I have created to my FX / FX chain

FX chain “compression reverb limiter” is added to highlited clip or clips


That in its own would be a time saver luxury. The bigger picture desired result is to

Have the ability to create a macro to use effects plug ins / FX Chain and render it with one keystroke.
