Delay Designer tap shortcut menu in Final Cut Pro for Mac
Control-click (or right-click) a tap in Delay Designer’s Tap display to open a shortcut menu containing the following commands:
Copy sound parameters: Copies all parameters (except the delay time) of the selected tap or taps into the Clipboard.
Paste sound parameters: Pastes the tap parameters from the Clipboard into the selected tap or taps. If there are more taps in the Clipboard than are selected in the Tap display, the extra taps in the Clipboard are ignored.
Reset sound parameters to default values: Resets all parameters of all selected taps (except the delay time) to the default values.
2 x delay time: Doubles the delay time of all selected taps. For example, the delay times of three taps are set as follows: Tap A = 250 ms, Tap B = 500 ms, Tap C = 750 ms. If you select these three taps and choose the “2 x delay time” shortcut menu command, the taps will be changed as follows: Tap A = 500 ms, Tap B = 1000 ms, Tap C = 1500 ms. In other words, a rhythmic delay pattern will unfold half as fast. (In musical terms, it will be played in half time.)
1/2 x delay time: Halves the delay time of all selected taps. Using the example above, choosing the “1/2 x delay time” shortcut menu command changes the taps as follows: Tap A = 125 ms, Tap B = 250 ms, Tap C = 375 ms. In other words, a rhythmic delay pattern will unfold twice as fast. (In musical terms, it will be played in double time.)
Delete tap(s): Deletes all selected taps.
