Understanding how your computer names and treats modifier keys is essential to working quickly and efficiently in Cubase. Matt Hepworth explains how they work.

Of all the DAWs on the market, Cubase has always had one of the most powerful sets of tools when it comes to workflow. A big part of this involves shortcuts, modifier keys and different clicks that can be used to get straight to the tools you want. Plus, many of these can be extensively customised for even more flexibility. In this video from the course Cubase 10 101: The Beginner's Guide To Cubase, Matt Hepworth explains the core ways in which Mac and Windows computers handle modifiers - which you'll need to know to get the most out of them.

Matt explains the essentials of modifier keys on Windows and Mac, including the ways in which the different platforms refer to keys that do the same or similar actions. For example, the command and control as well as the alt / option keys are shown slightly differently on each platform, and it's important to be aware of this so that when you hear "press alt", you know exactly which key it refers to on your system.
