AUDIGY - Set beginning of shown segment back to zero

If I have a single track of Audigy music showing perhaps 30 tracks, all visible with obvious silent periods between songs, how do I tell Audigy to set the next track back to zero time in order for me to keep easier track of where I am? I am attempting to transcribe 33'2 to digital. I DO know the length of each song so this possible feature would be great if it exists. Does it?

What you're asking to do is called chaptering and it's common practice in video editing, you mark one long track with a series of points you can easily move to.

Unfortunately you can't do that with an mp3 because the time displayed by the playback software has to be based on the total length of the whole file and mp3 playback needs to have one reference point for where the player is in the file.  If Track#2 for example starts at 04:00 and Track#3 at 07:30 in order to display 00:00 at the start of Track#2  the player has to discard Track#1 completely and the reference position for the start of #Track 3 is no longer at 07:30 it's now 03:30!  The mp3 standard can't cope with this!

Audacity does have a feature to spot silences in the file though and you could use this to break the file into several short files each of which contains a single track - so instead of one long mp3 you get a dozen or so individual mp3 files.

Would that work for you as an alternative?
