Default Please Help settle debate

My friend and I have a debate giong on whos definition of Bar/Beat VS Absolute markers is correct when trying to paraphrase the manual.

My definition is:

When you create a new Memory Location
There are four time based options you must choose from
1. Bar|Beat (tick-based) its Markers
diplay a Yellow Chevron. This marker will lock to a Bar Beat location
and remain there as you change the tempo of the song.

2. Absolute which is (sample-based)
and is represented by a Yellow diamond icon. This marker will remin fixed at the sample resolution Irregardless
Of your tempo changes.


His definition is:


There are four time based options you must choose from
1. Bar|Beat (tick-based) its Markers
diplay a Yellow Chevron. This marker will cause the playhead
to jump to a defined memory loacation at the Bar Beat Resolution.

2. Absolute which is (sample-based)
and is represented by a Yellow diamond icon. Will
cause the playhead to jump to a user defined memory
loacation at Sample resolution.


Can anyone please help us out?

The way I read you, you're both right but the first example is more correct. Absolute means just that. The bar/beat is relative. Set the marker and you'll return to that position in time, bar/beat and you return to the bar/beat wherever in time it may be.

To be clear: the markers don't move the playhead on their own.
