Creating Subgroups, Submixes, and Stems

Subgroups, submixes, and stems are three different mix scenarios that use essentially the same technique. The real difference is how each is used.

Unlike the send/return scenarios discussed previously, this technique routes the outputs of audio tracks to buses.
