which version?

yes, the auditioner is really intended to model only a simple
mono/stereo listening channel. maybe one day it could morph into
something more complex. the tab for the auditioner in the options
editor does (or can) contain a full mixer strip for it.

you don't route a track. only a region or a playlist. so that
particular problem doesn't exist.

correct. they are they to check out regions/files etc. nothing more.

if you use software monitoring, then you will hear them in the
monitoring stream. if they use too much CPU or you don't want to hear
them or whatever, this will turn them off while recording. they do not
ever affect the data written to disk, correct.

thanks for the other bug comments.
