Remote running on the same Windows machine - return focus to the Studio One window

asked Nov 21, 2020 in Hardware Integration / Remote Control by alanmendelevich (1,520 points)
I've tried to use Studio One Remote Control on the same Windows machine I'm running Studio One on and it seemed to work fine at first. But then I realized that every time I tap anything in remote I have to alt-tab or click back to the main Studio One window. This makes for a pretty much unusable workflow.

I hope there's an easy way to fix this by providing an option to auto-switch the focus back to Studio One on each [simple] tap. I realize that there are some inputs on the Remote, etc. and those should be exempt from this. So it may not be super simple. Still feels like something that shouldn't be too difficult to work around.

I ended up with a workaround that does the trick (except for a minor(?) side-effect).

Here's an AutoHotKey script that reverts focus back to main Studio One window whenever Remote window is activated:

The side-effect is that you can't input anything from the keyboard into Remote - like changing the tempo. For that you need to disable the script. But I feel like this is rarely needed.
