I will check it out, but it seems like it's not my cup of tea. Perhaps it is useful to capture some ideas.
Thank you for the link smile.gif

I am not sure about that. I have to figure that out.

Maybe some guy can have advantage of this tool

Sounds awesome but not for me. Every of my projects is never less than 14 tracks (GMC lessons and similar). If I am doing proper stuff like a full arranged song then I can have about 100 tracks running in a project. However for someone that is new to recording and mixing this could be a great starting tool.
