Question Loop until triggered quirkiness

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to Reaper. Not a sound engineer, just doing this for my band. I'm trying to setup click tracks, backing vocals, pads and other things.

I'm setting up a pattern to use for all songs that includes a click, a spoken song name and a vocal cue for in ears and then repeats a single measure of click until the drummer triggers the start of the song. That's where I run into trouble.

I've tried the actions (native and SWS):
- Go to Specific Region
- Go to Previous Region

But the only one I've had some success with is "Regions: Go to next region after current...(smooth seek)". However, I've found that I have to offset the marker well past the start of the measure to make it work (see screenshot). I'm afraid this will cause frustration for the drummer if he misses the window and has to hit again.

I may be missing some fundamental thing since I am a newby (I apologize if that's the case). Hopefully, that is the case.

This forum has been extremely helpful. It's nice to see such an active community.

Thanks for any help,
