Love your channel and tips Jason! Thanks
THANKS FOR SHARING MY VIDEO!
Hi there, thanks for your videos! I have a question that I can’t seem to find an answer for… Once I’ve set up my bussing / tracks how do I then make a preset to bring all of those back into a new project? I don’t want to recreate the tracks and busses every time. I’m sure this exists, but I can’t seem to find the answer on YT anywhre (!)
Thanks again for your time,
