Markers (sometimes called cues) are locations that you define in a waveform. Markers make it easy to navigate within a waveform to make a selection, perform edits, or play back audio.
In Adobe Audition, a marker can be either a point or a range. A point refers to a specific time position within a waveform (for instance, 1:08.566 from the start of the file). A range has both a start time and an end time (for example, all of the waveform from 1:08.566 to 3:07.379). You can drag start and end markers for a range to different times.
In the timeline at the top of the Editor panel, markers have white handles you can select, drag, or right‑click to access additional commands.

To move the current-time indicator to the nearest marker, choose Edit > Marker > Move CTI to Next or Previous.
In the Editor panel, drag marker handles to a new location.
In the Markers panel, select the marker, and enter new Start values for point markers, or Start, End, and Duration values for range markers.
