A "Marker Track" is a track below an Audio Track in Revoice Pro that can be loaded with user-defined moveable blocks of text. Each track can have any number of these Marker Tracks added.

Uses for these include putting down words describing the sections of a musical composition (e.g. Verse 1, Chorus 2, etc.), the words of a song in time with the audio, or the script of the dialogue for an ADR track in time with the actors corresponding words.

Add Markers Menu

By RIGHT CLICKing in this area, the following menu will appear.

Add Marker Word menu

If New Word is selected, an area will be reserved at the location of the Playhead and the user can type directly into that track. (Here the words "New Words Can Be Typed Directly Into This Track" have been entered.)

Add New Word

The next step is usually to bring up the same menu and select Auto Split.

Words in blocks

This will break each word into it's own moveable block as shown below.

Words in blocks

The selected block is shown in yellow and the edges of words can be dragged either direction to make the start and/or stop coincide with the related audio, as shown below.

Word Drag

Similarly, if the cursor is a double headed arrow, then the boundary between two words can be adjusted by dragging.

Drag word boundary

In addition, groups of words can be made with a SHIFT selection, as shown below.

Additional operations in the menu can merge groups of words, Delete them, and copy and Paste into empty areas of sufficient length.

Adding markers

The purpose of these operations is to adjust the starts and/or ends of the words and blocks of words to provide visual cues as to the content of the audio throughout the track.
