Cue List Playback & Copy
The Cue List function allows you to compile a cue list (i.e., a sequence of cues for playback)
using markers. Cues are loaded into memory for continuous, uninterrupted playback. The
Cue List can also be copied to create a new song.
A Cue List can contain up to 26 steps (A–Z). You can specify the start marker, end marker,
and the number of times the step is to repeat from 1 to 99.
