Markers, Oh My!

All the methods for setting the Now time that I’ve described so far have been based on numbers or predefined musical designations such as measures, beats, or the beginning and ending of a project. These methods are all fine when you already have the music for your project written out so you know exactly where everything occurs ahead of time, but what if you’re creating a song from scratch simply by recording the parts on the fly? In a case like that, being able to put names on certain locations within a project would be very helpful, and that’s exactly what markers allow you to do.

Using markers, you can assign a name to any exact point in time (in either measures, beats, and ticks or SMPTE) in a project. They’re great for designating the places where the verses and choruses start and end within a song. And they make it very easy for you to jump to any point in a project that you specify simply by name.
