Well those engineers are very right and yes, it does save huge amounts of CPU. Sometimes though if I know I won't be adding many plugins I will just throw it on an insert because I can...lol. I have 24GB ram in one of my machines so it can handle it. But if you need reverb on several tracks an FX track or a Buss is the best way to do it as you have been told.

Liked everything you just demonstrated, but one question.
You used insert for the reverb. How come you did not use "Send" for the acoustic guitar bus? I've always, always been told by numerous engineers to use "Send" tracks when adding in delay and reverb effects to tracks. Reason given to save on CPU Processing. (send for multiple tracks and adjust levels independently for the individual tracks)
Can you elaborate on this point? I have a severely limited ram and CPU issue with my computer so always have to find ways to lessen the CPU usage. Thanks.

A good clear explanation, and a damn good song to use as well.

hey johnny.I appreciate your skill and your amazing ear for music.But your motto "the starting point for beginners" seems crazy to me. You are zipping around so fast my head is spinning.your not really explaining anything.How is it possible for the beginner to follow any of this?There is no logical sequence for the novice to grasp.You are whipping around at lightning speeds almost taking for granted that a beginner knows how to access anything you are doing.The most confusing thing I have ever seen.Example secondary bus,add a bus,add it in secondary ect. There are dozens of terms you are throwing around with no explanations.Please,is there any way you can take a beginner step by step? Standing behind a brain surgeon looking over his shoulder is not going to teach me brain surgery.
