To create a Macro, click the Create Macro button, type a suitable name into the highlighted space in the Macro list, and press Return. For this reason, keyboard shortcuts have been popular since even the very early graphical user interfaces, allowing you to instantly access commands from a single key combination and develop efficient patterns of working for different tasks. To make life easier, the Key Commands have been grouped into a list of Categories, and the Commands list always shows the Key Commands available in the currently selected Category.
The Key Commands window again, showing the Macro options with a recreation of the 'Loop Selection' Command. Unfortunately, the Search Key Commands window is just a reference tool and you can't use it to automatically jump to a Key Command. Once you've selected a Command in the Key Commands window, any assigned keyboard shortcuts for it will be detailed in the Keys list, so if the list remains empty, you can deduce that the Key Command is currently unassigned. When you have a unique keyboard shortcut entered, click the Assign button to assign the Key Command, and you'll notice that it appears in the Keys list.

However, if you're not sure which category a Key Command might be listed under, you can use the search facility to help you. If your search was successful, you should see a list of matches describing the Key Command, the Category it's listed in and the keyboard shortcut that triggers the Command, if a shortcut has been assigned.
So which Cubase Key Commands does Hans assign to his keypad? Afterwards, as you'd expect, you can press the same key on the keypad to trigger the Key Command in Cubase — pretty neat. But let's pretend that the Loop Selection Command doesn't exist for a moment and investigate how we could create it using a Macro. These include useful features such as the nudge Commands, which allow you to nudge the current selection by the current quantize setting.

To recreate Loop Selection, you'd need to add the following Commands from the Transport category to a Macro, in this order: Locators to Selection, To Left Locator, Cycle, and Start. Steinberg supply many Key Command sets with Cubase, to emulate the way keyboard shortcuts are assigned in other applications, such as Logic, Sonar, and earlier versions of Cubase.
In Cubase, the handling of keyboard shortcuts or Key Commands, in Cubase-speak is very flexible, and almost any action in the application can be assigned to a Key Command. This is where things get interesting. For example, you could define a Macro that created Hitpoints and audio slices in a single keystroke, or a series of quantize buttons, such as 'quantize quarter notes' or 'quantize eighth notes' that select a quantize resolution and quantize the current selection — and this is just scratching the surface.

Inspired by the keypads used on cash registers in fast-food restaurants, where keys are assigned to different foods and beverages, Hans and his team came up with a really neat way of accessing Key Commands in Cubase, using the same type of keypad. The next step is to add the Commands you want the Macro to trigger, which you can do by selecting the Macro you want to add the Command to in the Macros list, selecting the required Command in the upper part of the window and clicking 'Add Command'. It's important to note that the Command is always added below the currently selected item in the lower Commands list, and that there's no way to change the order in which the Commands are triggered after they've been added, unless you manually remove them and start again.
