    is there a way to jump around within a clip. I thought i remembered doing something like this one time inside a clip.
    maybe it was a scrub. but not sure. nice video tho 🙂

  2. Very Useful! I like how it’s the least complicated approach. The markers are automatically labeled, the keyboard assignment is the most logical, and that’s probably enough markers to work on enough sections of a typical song. Renaming labels or remembering many labels as rehearsal markers, A, B,C probably would make the it harder to develop the new habit of using them.

  3. Thanks for the video! You could also locate them to the numeric keyboard, so your hand doesn’t have to jump around. I use Loc1=1, prev/set/next= 4-6, play/start/stop= 7-9, metronome=0, follow=/ … Cheers!
