Restart from selected spot

Post by Keith »

Right now the song starts playing from where you stopped. It would be wonderful to have the option to always start from where ever you placed the cursor over and over until you give it a new location. This is a standard norm in ProTools and major DAWs. The option could be chosen in settings or Multitrack’s preferences.

Example: when working with a vocalist and they want to keep resigning the first chorus it’s frustrating to them if you don’t start at the same spot every time.

Good call! I've been considering something akin to markers for a while now, they could appear by a long-touch in the ruler and the rewind button could toggle between the markers, the loop marker start, and the song start.

As it is now you can use the loop markers though, just make the loop big enough and put the loop start at a good time before the pickup point. A tap of the rewind button takes the playhead to the loop start.

I did not know that the rewind button would take you to the start of the loop. That really does what I was wanting. By making the end of the loop at the end of the song and adjusting the start point, I’m there. Having a label in the ruler for section labeling would be nice but after decades of marking charts with time or bar numbers I think it rocks as is.
