    That's not a "Bus" that's a SUBMIX Track. Jesus christ...

    I have a problem though. I have already bussed all of my instruments to a single bus so I can sidechain them since I use the old technique (EQ + Peak Controller). How do I bus my instruments to the sidechain bus AND a new instrument bus without having it mess up the sound?

    A fantastic and helpful video. The only thing i would like help with is mastering drum n bass, reggae or house music. I dont know if you could personally send me some tips on mastering these genres. I struggle to use the fruty limiter and compresser and not sure of the best way to hit the sweet spot when compresssing...can you help?

    Thanks man. I don't know why I forgot how to do a simple bus, but there it is. I've been out of practice for a couple of years and forgot some important tings.

    This is useful for recorded guitars too, for metal at least. For rhythm guitars each part should be played twice then panned to left then the right channel. I do this panning in the mixer, unfortunately it also pans any delay and reverb, so I bus them both into one channel and have the delay and reverb there.

    One thing I had to be careful for is making sure that the individual channels are not playing simultaneously with the bus channel.

    You took the long way to assign each instrument to its own mixer channel and name them.
    A quicker way is to make sure one of the instrument's green light is lit up to the right of the instrument name, then just right click on an empty mixer channel and select "Link selected channels". This will automatically rename the channel name, too.

    how did you move those track channels over? It was at the end then you moved it to the 3rd and 4th slot. ???
