Export with all markers on it?

asked Dec 29, 2021 in Studio One 5 by nichaliaschwartz (220 points)
How can I export and all the markers will still be in place with their names on the file? So that it can be imported into another DAW, for example, and they'll see all the markers?

I can see how to export between each marker, but I need to export the whole thing with all the markers and hand it off to someone else.

What kind of file format are you suggesting that this be provided in?

The WAV type of file does not support meta data like this and neither does MP3 as far as I know.

So there's nothing PreSonus can do.

The best way to import your Studio One song to be played in other DAWs is first to render everything into audio and then export it as an AAF session that can then be opened up in another DAW that supports AAF. format. AAF supports, fades, volume, pans, automation etc., but it does not support marker, arranger sections and tempo maps.

So you'll need to manually make a note of the timecode position of each marker in your S1 session and recreate those markers at the same timecode position in your other DAW.

Since AAF is a audio post production industry format not made by Presonus or any one particular DAW company, there is nothing presonus can do about it.

TLDR :  It is not possible and unfortunately, making a feature request about it is not going to make it possible either.

Sorry to bring up an older post, but I was looking for marker information including the option to export a file with markers embedded. I'd love this feature in S1, and I'd like to point out that the previous two commenters aren't correct in their comments. Many other daws / editors allow for export with markers attached to wav files - FL Studio, Adobe Audition, Steinberg's range etc and when I re-open these files in other programs (both audio and video) the markers are there. It's incredibly helpful for collaborative processes (even if they are just visual marks in the wav file, not the full detailed marker list).
