Fastest way to change gain of waveform?

Hi,
 
Maybe it already exists but I'm curious if there is a super-quick way to change the gain +/- on the waveform? Like highlight the section of interest, and then hit 1 key, maybe a number key to raise/lower it a percentage? Right now I highlight the section of interest, then go into Process, Apply Effect, Gain and then select from a drop-down list of however many DBs of +/- I want which takes a bit of time. I know I've asked for this type of feature update before. Does anybody know if it has been created or of a faster method?
 
Thanx, Frederick

    Hi:)
     
    I have 4 Autohotkey Hotkeys for that:
     
    Shift + 7      -3 dB
    Shift + 8      -1 dB
    Shift + 9      +1 dB
    Shift + 0      + 3 dB
     
    Here is the Cakewalk Section from the Gain.ahk:
     
    The other Hotkeys are for opening the flyout window (Ctrl + J) of the ProChannel EQ and for backing up the last 5 Dirs of my Recording partition ( Ctrl+Alt+B ).
     
     
    #IfWinActive, ahk_exe Cakewalk.exe

    ^j::
    Click 135,310,1
    Send, {PgUp}{PgUp}
    Click 165,450,1
    Return

    NumpadDot::
     Send {,}
    Return

    +7::
    Send {Alt}m{Enter}g{Tab}-3{Tab 7}-3{Tab 2}{Enter}
    Return

    +0::
    Send {Alt}m{Enter}g{Tab}3{Tab 7}3{Tab 2}{Enter}
    Return

    +8::
    Send {Alt}m{Enter}g{Tab}-1{Tab 7}-1{Tab 2}{Enter}
    Return

    +9::
    Send {Alt}m{Enter}g{Tab}1{Tab 7}1{Tab 2}{Enter}
    Return

    ^!b::
    source_Path := "R:\"
    FilePattern := "*.*"
    target_Path1 := "B:\Backup - Musik\"
    target_Path2 := "A:\OneDrive\Studio - Record NAS\"
    MaxCopys := 5
    Runwait, % comspec " /c dir """ source_Path FilePattern """ /T:W /B /O-D | clip",, hide
    Loop, parse, clipboard, `n, `r
      {
        oCopy := source_Path A_loopField
        If (Instr(FileExist(oCopy), "D"))
            RunWait % comspec " /c xCopy """ source_Path A_loopField """ """ target_Path1 A_loopField """ /s /i /y",, Hide
        If (Instr(FileExist(oCopy), "A"))
            FileCopy, % oCopy , % target_Path1 "\*.*"
        If (A_index=MaxCopys){
            RunWait % comspec " /c xCopy """ source_Path "*.*" """ """ target_Path2 "*.*" """ /s /i /y",, Hide
            Msgbox 0x40000,, % "Copied last " MaxCopys " files/diretories modified!!"
            Break
        }
     }
    Return

    #IfWinActive

    Bassman,
     
    Thanx for responding with a detailed response but can you explain how to put these in my Sonar program? I tried the simple: highlight, hit shift + 7, etc and nothing happened as expected as I figure first you need to install this programming somehow and it's not a default Sonar method but something you created yourself. Is this something I can just copy and paste into a location in the .exe file?
     
    Please advise, and thanx, I figured somebody must have figured this out by now

    Autohotkey is a free utility that lets you script just about any action and link it to a keyboard shortcut.


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    Hi:)
     
    @user390096
     
    1. Install Autohotkey  --> https://www.autohotkey.com/
    2. Download this "AHK" File --> https://1drv.ms/f/s!Al2mKojzOW0Ml5hMn65m7Id8IVJs7g
    3. Start this file before you start Cakewalk, but in administrator mode.
    4. Ready
    5. In Cakewalk just mark a piece of audio and press either Shift+7,8,9 or 0 to change the gain of the selected piece.
     
    It's faster than to do it with clipgain! 
     
    Have fun;)
     
    Bassman.
     
    P.S. If it doesn't start, right click on the file and choose compile script and you get an exe file of the ahk file. Try to start this in administrator mode!
