Hi, and good day.

I would like a command for setting the Loop Start/End with the Cursor. Imagine, the use is I have played/sung 4 bars past my previous loop but have not recorded. I would then set the Loop and play in the full 'new area.'

I realize there is no command for this function, and I am requesting that one be added. I cannot create a Hotkey or Macro until it is. And, I would also like to assign this function to my MIDI controller with Control Link.

Thank you!

I don't know if I understand your question correctly.

However, you can easily create a loop using a macro, based at the current cursor position.

Transport/Set Loop Start

Transport/Set Loop End

You can also create a loop from a selection. To do this create any selection and convert this selection into a loop:

Loop Selection            Ctrl + P
Loop Selection Snapped    P


You can also create a Loop just with mouse and cursor:
In the timeline use  
Ctrl + Mouse click = Loop Start
Alt + Mouse Click = Loop End

I hope this helps
