However, the whole "check out my mixtest!" contingent on /7/, where the do see themselves as "engineers" but they're just trying to create a one-size-fits-all template to drop stems into, makes no sense to me.
The upside of this conversation is it spurred me to create a tracking template with all my folder routing and input assingments pre-selected so I can boot up a blank project and have pre-routed drums, bass, rhythm, and lead guitar tracks ready to go so I just have to hit arm on the respective tracks. It's not much, but it'll probably savbe me 10 minutes just getting a new project off the ground.
