Default MARKERS should have independent timebase (selectable)

Hi, just a different way to look at the lack of an option to lock markers to SMPTE (reported here: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=201256)

An easier (maybe) way to do it is to allow markers to have their independent timebase and not having them share their timebase with items and envelopes



Cubase handles this very well with the ability to have more than one Marker track:



It would be cool to have this on Reaper but I don't think this is strictly necessary actually, it would be enough just to have the option, for every single marker, to have it "locked" or "unlocked" to SMPTE or, in Reaper terms, to have different timebases as an option.

This way we would be able to have "Movie" markers that have to be Time based and SMPTE locked, and also have "Music" markers that lock to a specific bar and beat.

here's a "real world" example of what I mean that might be even clearer (from 7:40)



Thank you very much for your hard work!
All the best

+1

In the meantime, you could maybe use empty MIDI items and put your marker labels in them as item notes - they'll be shown in the item.

A huge +1 from me as well. There needs to be a quick way to change a marker to timebase or tempo.
