3. Drag the sends from all the child tracks into the parent track. Open the i/o of the parent track to make sure all the children are there.

That's all there is to it. You've now made the folder a Schrodinger's cat buss. It's both a folder and a buss at the same time.

Try it out. It'll change your life.
So my friend, you first create a parent folder track with the 5 drum child tracks.

Then you assign a send from the child tracks to the parent track.

So then are you leaving the "Parent" checked on each of the child tracks too?

Sorry guys, I'm a ritard.
Yeah, I figured that out shortly after I started using Reaper so maybe we're both ritards.
