Is there a way to set the insert marker to the current song position with a key or midi command?

Yes, the "set" button in arrangement view is mappable. What's wrong exactly ?

INSERT key will create a marker in arrangement at the current playhead position if that is what you ask

Thanks. I am not looking to add a marker. I would like to be able to set the start point at whatever spot I am at so I can have play-back start from that position, until I reset it to another position. For now I am just clicking in the timeline but when I am editing something else I prefer not to leave the plug-in to move to the time-line.

Even better than this would be to be able to type in a measure number on my keypad to set a new start point. I got used to doing this on another DAW and really miss is it with Ableton. I don't expect this but if I could at least hit a key and have Ableton start from the current position it would help my work-flow considerably.

I see. I need to think about it. Do you use Max for live ?

No I don't use Max for live. Thanks for trying to help me figure this out. It would make such a huge difference.
