Hi All,

Apologies for what must be the dumbest question, but I'm trying to find the keyboard shortcut to increase volume on a track. I see it says "Option +" for increase, "Option -" for decrease, but for whatever reason those don't work.

On Windows it's ALT + and ALT -, which is no problem.

On this Mac Whenever I try "Alt/Option" + (which is really the upper case of the = key, so I've also tried Alt/Option and SHIFT and +), it doesn't do anything and just gives me the error "bonk" noise. "Alt/Option" and - gives me the same bonk. Googling didn't find anything so I thought I'd go straight to the source.

I can use the Audio menu command or other methods, but the point is - what's the seekrit key combo for increase volume? This is a macbook running 10.6.8 OSX.

Thanks!

Cant say for sure since i use windows, but if you go to options there is a printable listing of the keyboard shortcuts, so im sure you can find it there.

Thank you for the replies! I've figured it out based on your suggestion of the Options matthewgorman.

On the Mac it's under the "Studio One -> Keyboard Shortcuts" menu, but the keyboard shortcut list showed that it required Option key plus the plus sign on the Number Pad.

There's no numberpad on this notebook - There is a NumLock function key on the macbook, but for various reasons it's never on (I'm not an accountant . . .) So the "Option +" key combination required it to be on.

I remapped it to Option-shift-plus and the increase volume works just like I'm used to it on Windows.

(If Presonus is so inclined, I'd recommend they change that default key combo for Mac . . )

Thank you!
