Elements 9.5 Markers - Auto Create?

Is it possible to auto-create all the Start and End markers for all the clips in an Audio Montage, like Wavelab-6?

I can’t find it in the Help.

I’m trying to open my copy of Elements to help you but the plugin scanning is SLOW. I will eventually get it open :slight_smile:

From what I remember, in Elements the track markers are defined by the clips themselves and it’s a limiting of WaveLab Elements. In WaveLab Pro you can of course use the CD Wizard to auto-create track markers at the start of each clip in a variety of ways.

I could be wrong because I don’t use the Elements version for serious work. You may want to consider WaveLab Pro.

I’ll check in again after I can get Elements to open after this epic plugin scan to see if I am wrong.

Yes, it seems that WaveLab Elements is lacking the very powerful CD Wizard for creating track makers and other useful track setup tools. See attachment.

It seems that in WaveLab Elements, the CD track start and end points are only defined by the start and ends of clips which can be very limiting.

I can’t even get that to work. I’ve followed the Help but can find no way to select a start and end marker pair and have them simultaneously added to the beginning and end of a clip (a whole track in my case).

There does not appear to be an upgrade path from W6 to W9.5 so I may have to remain on W6 as I can not justify the 480GBP buy the product again.

Double click the upper part of a click, to time-select that clip and only it.
Then whether:

  • press C (shortcut)
  • Open the marker menu by right-clicking the upper part of the time ruler.

I thought you didn’t need markers to burn a CD in Elements.

Sorry, I thought you mentioned Pro. There is no concept of CD markers in WaveLab Elements.

So what are the Start and End Markers for?

How does one scan through the tracks on a CD if there are no markers?

The CD Wizard in W6 puts markers in.

A clip is a CD track, in WaveLab Elements.

So I don’t need to add any start/end markers if I’m using the whole tracks as they are? The CD will be able to index them correctly?

If you mean “clip” (WaveLab name) for “tracks”, then yes.

Thanks PG, it’s working.
