Create a new pattern clip
To add time markers in FL Studio, the first step is to create a new pattern clip.
To do this, click the “New Pattern Clip” button which is located on the top left corner of the Pattern window.
After clicking the button, a new pattern clip will be created in the pattern order window.
You can now add time markers to the pattern clip by right-clicking on the pattern clip and selecting “add time marker” from the pop-up menu.
You can then adjust the position of the time marker by dragging it along the pattern timeline.
Once you have positioned the time marker, you can add a name and/or description to it so that you remember exactly what it is for.

After selecting the project you want to add the time markers to, the next step is to select the track.
Depending on which FL Studio version you are using, this may be done in the Browser window or the Playlist window.
Simply click on the track you would like to add the time markers to, and then click on the “Time Markers” option in the Playlist window.
This will open up the “Time Markers” window, which will allow you to add and manage the time markers on the selected track.

You can then drag the time marker to the desired position in the Piano roll.
Once it is in the correct position, you will be able to add labels to the time marker by double-clicking it.
This is a great way to keep track of different sections in a song, or to create a tempo map.
