Related Records List Update – Part One : BentoUsers Feb I’m starting another weekly series. The premise: almost a year ago, Simon wrote a great tutorial about an advanced feature of Bento: the Related Records List Fields. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you do. First let’s review the basics: if you simply create a one-way link between two Libraries, you HAVE to add any related records to the list by hand. You can create Related Records List Fields in Libraries AND Collections. Update: Simon reminded me that Bento 1 did not even allow Smart Collections as sources for a Reletated Records List Field.

The 13 best budget MIDI controller keyboards | Why overpay to play? While some choose to get by without one, for most people, a MIDI controller keyboard is an essential part of a computer music making setup. Fortunately, buying one no longer needs to represent a substantial financial investment. In this round-up, we’ve picked out 13 models that are available for under £100/$150 if you shop around. At this price, you’re not going to get hammer-action keys or the ultimate in control, but if you just want a keyboard that you can play and use to make the odd plug-in or DAW tweak, look no further. Click on to find (in no particular order) everything from super-compact ‘boards to five-octave models that enable proper playing: there’s a budget MIDI controller keyboard out there for everyone. Also bear in mind that M-Audio has just released the new version of the Oxygen 25, Akai has started shipping the mkII edition of the MPK Mini, and Alesis has its V series.

Related Records List Update – Part Three : BentoUsers Mar I played around with Smart Collections as the source for Related Records and it got so complicated that I can only repeat: expect some strange behavior. The only real useful implementation would be a new field type which would combine a Related Records List with a Smart Collection that would update automatically– like the behavior of a stand-alone Smart Collection. Maybe sometime in a future Bento update… Relational Loops are a wonderful thing. Tip: you can rename any Related Records List Field. I hope this update cleared up most questions. Top 10 Superior Tech Products You'll Never Go Back From OS X: Keyboard shortcuts - Apple Support Using keyboard shortcuts To use a keyboard shortcut, press a modifier key at the same time as a character key. For example, pressing the Command key (it has a ⌘ symbol) and then the "c" key copies whatever is currently selected to the Clipboard. This is also known as the Command-C keyboard shortcut. You can see the keys that map to many shortcuts by looking in an app's menus. A modifier key is a part of many keyboard shortcuts. When the fn key is used with the top row of keys on your keyboard, it makes them perform a different function. If you use a non-Apple keyboard that includes a Windows key, the Alt key is the same thing as pressing Option, and the Windows key is the same thing as the Command key. Cut, copy and paste You can use these shortcuts in most apps to cut, copy, or paste a selected item. Taking screenshots Use these shortcuts to take a picture of what you see on your screen. Startup shortcuts Use these key combinations to change how your computer starts up. App shortcuts
