Locking Arranger Sections to SMPTE

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Didn't find anything related to this: is currently any way to lock the position of an Arranger Section to a specific SMPTE position, same as you do with clips?

Would be very useful in a music for video scenario.

You can change the time base to Absolute time on an arranger track by track basis.  So all sections within an absolute time track will keep their absolute time position and length regardless of tempo changes.

To change the time base of an arranger track, either use the arranger track context menu, or click the time base icon in the arranger track header:

Whatt!? just what I was dreaming of - Thanks Scook! 

This is extra useful for composing music for video (now I can mark sections on one arranger track dedicated to video marking,  and keep them locked regardless of the tempo changes I make on the music).  And keep the arranger sections of the music unlocked in a different track.

 - Fantastic.

Bonus: if a  combine this with the new tempo track, I can visually align arranger sections of the music to landmarks on the video by changing the tempo map...! wow. What a time saving tool! Thanks again -
