Earlier in this course, I showed you how to create custom effect tracks and place one on each deck.…But when performing live with your original multi-track productions, you will likely have…a lot more than two tracks, and it will be overly complex and time-consuming to place…and map an audio effect track on each one of your tracks.…One solution would be to insert some effects on the master track.…But what I'd like to show you in this video is how to set up a regular audio track to…act as a pre-master track, or bus track.…You can have all of your audio tracks to this new Bus track and insert your effects there.…
In Live, let's create another audio track by hitting Command or Ctrl+T.…Let's drag it to the end, renaming it Bus. Let's give it a color.…Now, let's route all the tracks to this Bus track by changing the Audio To, Audio To > Bus.…Let's do the same for all the tracks. Nice.…
Right now, if we play the music, we won't hear anything come out from the Bus track.…That's because we need to arm it. (music playing)…
