this time I would like to know how I can get a quick way of working starting a mixdown; I usually saved track templates in Sonar… for this…
My scenario is:
while mixing a new CD, the first thing I mix is the drums (maybe 14 channels or so)…
I used to set up the drums tracks for an initial mixing, including levels, fx etc. as well as bussing (I like to route for example the snares to a snare bus, the toms to a tom bus etc.) and all the buses usually are routed to another bus that I call DRUMS that is routed to a final Master bus.
In Sonar I usually set up everything for the FIRST song, and then I am used to SAVE a Track Template which stores all those settings (including buses), so I can use the same setting (as starting point) for the other songs… (keep in mind that usually the drums are recorded in a couple of days in the same studio, so the drums tracks are more or less similar for each song).
In Sonar, I load the track template that I previously saved and everything works fine (the only thing I need to do is to MOVE the various drum clips inside the “correct” tracks that are created loading the track template… )
Now in Cubase I am not able to find a similar solution… I tried with the Track Presets, but it seems NOT to save the buses as well.
