SONAR 8.3 Key Bindings

This site lists all the Key Bindings that are available in the SONAR 8.3 Key Bindings dialog (see picture at bottom).


  • There are over 650 user-modifiable key bindings (not even counting those for CAL, Layout, and StudioWare files).

  • The Key Binding dialog does not show defaults (except for Step Record), so I've tried to list the defaults, where applicable.

  • A wonderful companion document to these Key Bindings pages, is the SONAR Shortcut Reference Document written by mabian. It lists all the default shortcuts (some of which are user-modifiable via key bindings) and also contains lots of other useful info.
