Topic: Is there a way to have hotcues act in this way?
id like to know if its possible to press and hold hotcue and have it jump to that position and play from there and then when i release the button have it switch back to where i was before i pressed hotcue?

This doesn't perform in the same way i describe though, slip mode moves the song forward as if it were playing when you are holding hotcue so when you jump back you are further ahead in the song than you were when you triggered hotcue, it also removes the ability to trigger hotcues normally.

What i imagined was that with say holding shift and then pressing hotcue you could trigger the hotcue as it normally functions but with the twist of having the software remember where i triggered the hotcue from and bring me back to that point when i release shift. I suppose this could also be more elegantly achieved by pressing and holding hotcue with a mode/option engaged like slip mode too. I didnt see a mode like this already so i figured it may already be possible with a custom button or something?

What i do at the moment is place a hotcue just before i want to trigger my hotcues then delete it when im done with it, I'm just looking for an easier way to achieve the same thing.
