unfortunately the tempo markers etc are still at the
same place, i was wondering if it's possible to move
the entire song, with markers and everything. if i
have like 10 tempo markers that need to be updated
manually it's a lot of work.. :-/ somehow be able to
move all the markers afterwards would also work of

i didn't express myself clearly, what i meant was if
it's possible to give individual regions their own
tempo, eg. whenever i move region A and drop it
somewhere, the song will have that region's particular
tempo at that position..

something like this would be optimal: let's say we
have a small song with a chorus and two verses
chorus: at bar 1 to 20
verse1: 30 to 40
verse2: 60 to 80
it would be cool if one could just set up the session
to play for example pos 30-40 (verse1) twice, then
perhaps chorus, verse2 etc.. like a playlist for the
song.. if that worked, i would of course not have to
bother about the tempo issues above since it would be
extremely easy to reorganize the song.
