Default Exact same song start, timecode and Bars/beats

Iam going crazy!

Been working inside PT for some years now, but have failed to learn this (seems easy enough task).
I am composing a song for a trailer. And would like the first frame to line up to first beat of the song.
One way would be to use the start of the session, but what if i have 3 versions inside one session that starts on i.e. every hour.
there must be something like ''insert time and bar aligned'

help please,
...me failing english? That's Unpossible

Default Re: Exact same song start, timecode and Bars/beats


Personally, I would use one session per version, and use the "Move Song start feature" (menu "Event/Time Operations/Move Song Start") to align the 1st bar of your song to a particular timecode/frame.

But you can also use a trick for your 2nd, 3rd version in the same session :
- Just before the 2nd version start point, you can locally change the tempo (up or down) to align the bar/beat to a particular frame. It won't be numbered bar1 but it should do the trick unless you change tempos in the previous version (everything would move in this case). Not ideal at all, though...
