Thanks, Fab! This is a life saver for beginners like me. But there's 1 thing you didn't talk about that's driving me crazy: solo save and pre/post fader stuff. I don't get it and once I create Busses and stuff I tend to lose overview of how I can solo/mute different tracks. I know it's a "D'Oh" kind a thing for pros but for idiots like me that stuff is annoying as heck. A short video on that would be killer
