I’m curious how you guys do your routing of instruments to parallel busses.
So, let’s say I set up a drum grit buss (say, with a bit of disortion/saturation, etc.) and a PBuss, also with some saturation/etc., and I want all instruments besides drums to go to the PBuss.
So, would you route, say, all electric guitars individually to the PBuss, or route the guitars as a group to the PBuss (i.e., the EG guitar folder in REAPER, or maybe a buss that all EG’s are routed through).
Same with drums: in REAPER all my drums are in a folder; would you usually just route the folder or each of the drums?
I know, I know, there’s no right way, and if it sounds good it is good, and it depends on how much flexibility you want over the individual tracks going to the Drum Grit or PBuss. But I’d be interested in how you guys commonly prefer to do your routing.
Also, I’m not sure how the routing works in REAPER: if say my kick drum is sent to the drum grit buss as a post-fader send, what happens when I decrease the volume of the folder’s fader? Would that also decrease the volume of the send as well?
