Navigate Your Song with Ease by Coloring Markers in Pro Tools

By in Music Creation, Pro Mixing

Markers are a great way to navigate within Pro Tools. They make it easy to recall the exact section of a song that you want to hear. However, you can make this feature even more powerful by adding color to your Markers! Color your verse green, your chorus red, your bridge blue. Use the features of the Color Palette, like HOLD, to choose the same exact color for each verse, chorus, bridge, and so on. Or, use different colors for everything, the choice is yours. Coloring your Markers will make it that much easier to visually spot the different parts of your song.

Color your Markers to quickly recognize and recall the sections of your song/session.

When you trash preferences you will need to reset your color options.
