Default New time per song


Maybe a stupid question but can't find the answer and maybe it's not even possible.
I have 6 songs in a session. Is it possible to give each song it's own time, starting at zero? Like a relative time or something...

I edit these songs for someone. Hey come up with (as an example): At that songs on 2:15 it need some more base. At that song at 3:02 it need something bla bla. For hime his songs start always at zero.
If it's not possible I have to put all the songs in a new session each...

Default Re: New time per song

Park each song on a ten minute increment. For example:
Song 1 - 00:00
Song 2 - 10:00
Song 3 - 20:00
And so on.

This way you can still follow the time he references discounting the leading number.

I would love to see this possibility as well, especially useful for alternate versions or extended versions of a song.

Bring it on Avid!
