thanks gary. everything you mentioned.
audio/midi recording, mastering for sure, output configs for re-amping or recording a 2 ch down mix of an improv of the other tracks, feeding a track(or tracks) into a looper or delay busses, key mapping transport and essential functions, folder and file management(where do all those takes live?) optimizing plug-ins and CPU load. color coding groups and individual elements, sharing templates.
the quickest and dirtiest way to start recording: ..."if you wanna do [i]this[/i], you need to do these things...". and yes i would be very interested in templates for genre specific stuff as well. this would be a great series.
***i generally find all your tutorials to be very informative with tons of tips but struggle with the fact that i have to make a lot of notes as to where to locate specific tips in various tutorials. many tricks get lost in the ether before i get a chance to digest them and frequently the names of individual vids do not necessarily indicate the contents, so looking for the tip often takes much weeding, even when tagged as a favorite. (something could be improved here but i'm not sure how...more tags as they relate to content in the vid?)
any templates other logic and live users have to share would be great!
