I am apparently misunderstanding the Cycle Marker Function and would like a clarafication from someone here using it correctly.
When I want to rehearse a section of a song for overdubs, making mixing choices, etc., I'd go to the master start and end sections and type in the parameters, say Loop bars 1 - 8 and then hit the cycle icon to activate the loop. This works great, but the down side was remembering to reset the original Left/Right points for the entire song.
So I THOUGHT that being able to insert a cycle marker into the Markers Master List would allow me to just double click that point and activate the cycle icon without having to re-set the master start/end points of the song. Since I can add mutliple cycle markers, this would be a huge time saver for me.
But when I actually tried it, it didn't work. I double clicked (as instructed in the manual) the inserted cycle marker, with its own start and end points set, activated the cycle icon and, when it got to the loop point, it kept right on playing the song to the end. As I was in a hurry to finish my project, I went back to the old way of doing it with the master locate points. But I'd really like to know how to make this feature work, or did I misunderstand it's purpose?
