I'm running 8 tracks for drums, as that's my hardware limit at the 
moment, even though they really deserve at least 11 tracks.

What's the difference between a "group" and a "set" of drum tracks?

It is a good example of a situation when you couldn't (or shouldn't) 
mix tracks from different recording passes due to the bleed between 
mics.  At least there's potential to handle this better than when I 
recorded to ADAT -- no punch-in or crossfade between takes there.
