Navigating with Markers

You can navigate through your project with markers. This is useful when you want to quickly jump to, and edit, regions or events at a specific project position, for example.

To move the playhead to a marker
Do one of the following:
  • In the Marker track:  Press Option and click the marker.

  • In the Bar ruler:  Press Command and click the marker.

  • In the Marker List:  Click a marker with the Finger tool.

    Tip: If you press Option and click a marker in the Marker List with the Finger tool, the locators are set to the beginning and end points of the selected marker.

  • Use the Go to Marker Number 1 to 20 key commands (20 different commands).

    The marker numbers in these commands refer to the (serial) order of all markers in the project.

  • Use the Go to Marker key command to open a window that allows you to type in any marker number.

    This moves the playhead to the beginning of the chosen marker.

To move to the next or previous marker
  • Use the Go to Previous Marker and Go to Next Marker key commands.

The locators are set to the beginning and end points of the selected marker.

To start playback at a marker start position
Do one of the following:
  • In the Bar Ruler:  Command-double-click a marker.

  • In the Marker List:  Click-hold a marker with the Finger tool.

Logic Express continues playing until the mouse button is released.

To create a cycle from a marker
Do one of the following:
  • Hold down Command, and drag the marker up into the top part of the Bar ruler.

    Figure. Marker track showing marker being dragged into the Bar ruler.

    This sets a cycle with the same position and length as the marker. If Logic Express is stopped when performing this action, the playhead is placed at the start point of the cycle.

  • Select the marker, then use one of the following key commands:

    • Set Locators by Marker and Enable Cycle

    • Set Locators by Previous Marker and Enable Cycle

    • Set Locators by Next Marker and Enable Cycle
