Improved templating and components could help. A
template titled "record" describes the track count and
routing that works with my physical rooms and hardware
but as any job progresses we add new tracks to the
Ardour session.

Pop music production is very formulamatic. The backing
vocal parts for a typical rock song are a great
example. Consider a three part harmony where every
note/part is recorded twice--once each for left and
right speakers. This requires six 1in, 2out tracks
where three are panned hard left and three hard right.

User Definable Session Components
The user builds a component titled "3partBckVox". The
i/o, routes, plugins, inserts are defined and the
component can be used in any session.

The components become available through the Add
Track/Bus interface.
