Great idea Mark.  I take it there's really not much extra overhead
for this?  .... WOULD there be extra overhead in doing what was
suggested earlier... and just putting the last 15 seconds on a
separate track (as opposed to bus) ?

ONE thing I just thought of, that I like.... is that by doing it with
buses, is that all my guitar audio files will appear on the same
track (visually nicer), and then I can hide the bus tracks to keep
the track list uncluttered... but all that is just visual.
