I posted a “feature request” for this and was happy to learn Cubase does almost exactly what I was asking for.
If you use Cycle Markers and Arranger Track, this may make your life a lot simpler. It did mine. Easy to learn, easy to use.
- Create Project with Cycle Markers
- Create Arranger Track
- Double Click on a Cycle Marker (active Marker Track)
- Double Click on the Arranger Track
- An Arranger Track segment is created that exactly matches the cycle!
For greatest ease when doing this, I suggest you put the Arranger Track directly above or below the Marker Track which contains the Cycles you wish to assign as Arranger Segments.

Thanks, again, to Steve for cluing me in to this.
