I want my audio plugin to respond to Cmd(Ctrl)+Z and Cmd(Ctrl)+Y for controlling the Undo manager.
But it seems the hosts I’m testing this in (Reason and Garageband) both intercept those key combinations before even reaching my keyPressed() callback.
I can read Z or Shift+Z just fine, so it seems that I’ve managed to register the KeyListener correctly. It’s the Cmd+Z combination that won’t reach my key listener.
First I was considering that it’s not possible to get around this at all, but it turns out that there are other plugins (for example MicroTonic) that manage to receive this key combination in the same hosts. So there must be a way!
Does anyone know how they do this?
(Hoping that it’s not a matter of the hosts hardcoding this support for certain plugins…)
