Digital Performer 9 tip: Open Instrument Hotkey

Ever find yourself hunting for your instrument track? I always feel like it’s too many clicks away, but not anymore!  I just learned this assignable hot key from a composer here in LA.

Go to your Commands window for customizing your hotkeys.  (shift + L)

Type in Instrument
