Arrangement markers; more than one marker lane

Several marker lanes would be very useful to organize and discern different sets and type of markers. A specific marker lane (like the "arrangement track" in Logic) can be used to delimitate song sections (verse, chorus, bridge, etc) and can have specific characteristics: markers in this lane should be contiguous time ranges and their boundaries should be draggable; they should be renamed by double-clicking the range. ...more »

Allow several markers tracks.

Allow several markers tracks. And to move vertically. That would be awesome.

 

For example, in my case, I put the lyrics of a song with the markers, but I also have many other markers to place, corrections, reminder notes, specific element. I think for post-syncho, it would also be very useful.

Clip Based memory Markers

Why can't Markers be tied to clips, so that if you move the clip the marker moves with it. I know I can create a "memory" for that clip, but I want to see it in the Markers bar.

Memory Location improvements

Hi

 

When creating memory locations, it would be faster to make an option that changes the default Time-Properties of the new Mem-Loc like so:

* When my selector is within a range - Default a Selection

* When my selector is just a on the grid without a range - Default to Marker

 

 

 

Another option is to Enable CMD + ARROWS to change the Time Properties (Just like creating a new track).

Horizontal markers !

Cubase to add one or more additional rules at any level of the editing window. For example, between the tracks of different types. This function is very useful to divide clearly floors all tracks. However, Avid could innovate with another way: simply invent horizontal markers! These markers, placed between the tracks or track groups, etc., would help the general division and would be really great.

Link Marker Positon to Shuffle Mode

When editing i often use Shuffle Mode of course.Id love to see a freature that also Moves the Markers after the Edit Point. When inserting a Part all following Marker shift to the right and vice versa when cutting out all following Markers shift to the left like the following Clips.

 

I would call it "Link Marker Position to Shuffle Edit"

Markers Clear Numbering

When a marker is created, it auto creates a marker number. It's possible to jump to this marker number using the shortcut .(marker number). on the numeric keypad. All well and good, but actually keeping tabs on which marker number is which is less straightforward that it might be. Why not have the marker number written in text within the small yellow shield symbol in the marker lane? That should be easy to implement, ...more »

Ability to edit Marker location on timeline by manually entering in absolute value

Title pretty much sums it up. In Pro Tools 11 and up please allow the ability to edit a Marker's place on timeline by manually entering in an absolute value (the value would be whatever counter mode you are in, ie timecode, min:sec, samples...). I know a few other DAWs that have been able to do this for quite some time. The new timeline location edit could happen in the "Edit Memory Location" dialog (accessed either ...more »

''Chords'' and ''Markers'' in the big counter

Will be great for musicians and producers to see the chords in the big counter, specially in recording session situations. I've seen this option in old softwares of big mix consoles.

Important: An option for MIDI chord recognition, and send them directly to the chord rule. AVID Sibelius is the best example for this option.

Make the Ruler a Special Track.

I have long advocated for making the Ruler a Track. If it were a track it could enjoy all the benefits of playlists. Ruler Playlists would solve many of the wishes I have seen users ask for regarding the ruler. For example, when editing a song, markers become irrelevant to their original intent. With Ruler Playlists, a duplicate of the origin ruler could be made and the newly created Ruler Playlist could be named for, ...more »

Locate by Marker

PT Control should include a view where you can look at and locate to (maybe even create) markers. There are soft keys for editing so why not have a better method of selecting regions, like from a marker to a marker. I do this all the time in the DAW, PT Control should as well, otherwise, it's editing soft keys are not useful to me.
