Quick Audio db adjustments like in FCP?

Is there a way to do a quick audio adjustment on a track with a keyboard shortcut like in FCP (where you can map raise/lower 1 or 10 db to a key)

Thanks

Coming from FCP I miss this feature a lot.

If you're on MC 7.0 at least you can now have access to a shortcut to add or remove gain.
You have to turn on the feature first and then you'll see a little icon in the lower left corner of the audio clip. Clicking on it will reveal a slider so you can lower/raise the volume.
But don't get too excited! If you work with dual mono tracks (L-R) you'll have to set the gain for each track...
So not as quick as FCP but faster than before.

I also just came across a post saying that there was a keyboard shortcut that I haven't tested yet. But it seems it applies the effect to the whole track
ALT(OPT) + SHIFT + Arrow UP/DOWN adjusts Clip Gain in Timeline
(when Clip Gain is visible in timeline settings & Track selected)

Yes! That works, ALT Shift Arrow does the trick. Thank you.
