You are tracking a band and you want to mark a part that needs a punch in or, maybe mark where the chorus is in real time. This cant be done with blocks. Pro tools does this perfectly!
First off, you can
use Blocks as markers even if you're not "using" blocks for tracks.
But like dreampolice says, it's not very easy. You can't 'drop' and name a marker as the song plays, or edit the name without first going into blocks mode, and you can't "go to" a block's location like you can with a marker. You can't see all the blocks in order in a list - you must zoom all the way out to see all the blocks/markers, nor can you use blocks to create selections, like to select everything from the top of Chorus 2 to the end of the Bridge, for example. :-)
