Working with Markers

Markers are used to define different sections or locations in your project and make it easy to go back to that section or location later in your work. There are two types of markers in Cubase, and then there are the locators. The left and right locators are special cycle markers in a project. These locators are used to identify the current start and end locations when playing in cycle mode. They also play a role in identifying the punch-in and punch-out location during recording. You can quickly move your project cursor to the position of the left or right locators by using the numbers 1 and 2 respectively on your numeric keypad. Here’s a look at the two types of markers:

  • Cycle markers are similar to the left and right locators as they identify the beginning and ending of a range or section in your song. After you create cycle markers, you can move your left and right locators to the position of a cycle marker by double-clicking on it. Cycle markers are identified by numbers within brackets ([1]) in the marker track’s inspector area or in the marker window.

  • Markers identify a single position in your project, and they are identified by numbers without brackets in the track’s inspector area or in the marker window. You can quickly move your project cursor to the position of the first six markers using the numbers 3 to 9 on your numeric keypad or by clicking on the numbers 1 through 15 to access the first 15 markers in the markers section inside the transport panel.
