Insert silence before the ruler counts

Go to solution Solved by guavadude,

Hi All,


I'm trying to find a way to insert time in the beginning of the song (Menu > Edit > Cut/Insert Time) but in a way that doesn't affect compass counting in the ruler.

I mean: I want to add a silence (to give a small breath before the songs begin) but I don't want that this silence is the number 1 compass... In theory it will be the -1... Is that possible?

How can I do that?


Thanks for the help! ;-)

+1. Don't do it. I always start at Bar 3 so that there are two bars of countoff.

Then use Project settings/Synchro and set bar 3 as 01:00.00.00. That way your pre-roll won't freak out any video timings either.


Create markers for your sections and what bar they are at won't matter. You'll get used to things starting at bar 3
