Force play to start from fixed position

Post by N.I.V » Thu Sep 24, 2020 10:45 pm

Hey there,

Been bugging me for a while now...

When I'm working on any transition in arrangement view, my ideal workflow would be to place a start marker and whenever I hit play to start from that position and hear the same exact segment each time. It should play from the same spot even if I select different clips and edit them. The default behavior is that it would keep changing the playback start position based on my latest selection.

Is there a way to "force" playback to start from a specific time no matter what?

- Insert a marker in Arrangement
- Right-click this marker and select "Set song start time here"
Done
