Now, effects placed on audio or MIDI tracks only affect the signal output from that track. That's great for effects like EQs and compressors, but other effects are more CPU intensive and are more effective when shared between two or more tracks. I can do that using a send. A send is a virtual wire that allows us to copy signal from a track, or tracks, and pick it up at a different location.
