Locator Options

 

 

Manually Set

 

MEAP will not change your locators. They will remain as they were before you started your MEAP export. Sp you can set your locators anywhere.

 

Don't forget, any nose or tail you have set up will always be added to any of the locator settings.

 

 

 

All Project

 

The locators will be automatically set to encompass all of your project before export begins.

Parts on Tracks

 

The locators will be automatically set to encompass all of the parts on each track individually.

Start to Last Part

 

The locators will be automatically set so that the left locator is always at the beginning of the first part in the project but the right locator is at the end of the last part on each track.

Zero to Last Part

 

The locators will be automatically set so that the left locator is always at the beginning (zero) of the project in the project but the right locator is at the end of the last part on each track.

Note that this option uses the "," key command to move the project cursor to position 0 (zero). If your cursor is already at zero the cursor will then be moved to the beginning of the project (which may not be zero).

The easiest way to avoid confusion here is to make sure your cursor is not at zero before starting the export.

 

 

 

First Part to End

 

The locators will be automatically set so that the left locator is always at the beginning of the first part on each track but the right locator is at the end of the last part of the project.

Separate Parts

 

Each part will be separately exported one at a time. MEAP does this by reading the left locator position of each part and then exporting it. After export MEAP moves the locators to the next part and exports it. When MEAP reaches the first part again it will move to the next track.

 

Note: If you have your audio application set to import parts back into the project, the screen will get full pretty quick, as each part exported will be imported back onto a new track. There is no way around this.

You must set your Transport Time Display option correctly in order for this to work - See Transport Time Display

 

You must have the left locator displayed in your audio application transport bar.

 

 

If you have Bars+Beats visible in your Transport you should choose Transport Time Display = Bars+Beats
