So like, if I have two audio tracks, and I want to mix them together, but I want to apply different FX to each of the tracks, I know that I can’t make one track the parent of the other. If I did that, and let them mix via the parent send, I expect any FX I put on the parent to affect the mix, with no good way of pinpointing them to just what is actually contributed from this one track. Instead, I’d send them both to some other track to get mixed, and then put FX on the individual tracks as necessary. Yes there are multichannel tricks we could play, and yes there’s probably ways to achieve something like that in video also, but the simplest way in both cases is to just keep them on separate tracks until we’re actually ready to mix them together and then do that on a dedicated track.
