Adding audio/software tracks with busses

#1
I would love when adding tracks to arrange if, in addition to asking what input and outputs I'd like (which is a nice touch), one could duplicate the bussing scheme. If I have six busses assigned it should be a no brainer to create a track with the current bussing scheme (yes with duplicate track it does this but often one doesn't want the same exs24 track etc...).

Interesting request. Not a bad idea.

Why not just set up your template with all the audio tracks and software instrument tracks already created with the buss assignments you want. That's what I do and it works great. I can then use the "create next track" command and it works perfectly. I have two sends set up permanently on all my tracks and instruments - one for reverb and one for headphone mix. Plus a few other auxes and subgroups, etc

Well I do this but these days I prefer not to have such a complicated envirment to start (partly because the add tracks is a nice new feature). Actually another feature I would like is to create the names for the track at the same time. Let's say I decide, now I need 8 tracks for backround vox. It would be nice to say create 8 tracks, called vox1-8 and then click. Or I know I now will need 4 more exs24 tracks called woodwinds 1-4. Just would speed up workflow...j.

if you select let's say track 1-8 in the environment and use the text tool to rename the first one "vox1" the rest will be named "vox2" "vox3" and so on...I use it this way all the time. :)

Me too - but it's not quite the same thing. It requires going to a different window, scrolling to find the cannel strips, etc. Several extra steps are involved.

Tip: The same technique you describe applies for regions in the arrange window. Naming a multiple selection with a number at the end will cause them to all be named with the same name and numbered incrementally.
