I'm trying to use hardware for stereo/2 bus mixing for the first time. I'm trying to just use EQ on only guitar tracks. So far I've created a new stereo track with the proper stereo input selected. I was under the impression I had to create a new bus with Pipeline Stereo, then send the main output to the main bus, mix with my hardware to my liking, then record on the stereo track. However, there is no "sends" on the main output, only "post" to add post effects. I also tried just adding Pipeline stereo to the guitar bus but when I tried that all the plug-ins on the bus were inaudible so I couldn't mix with the plug-ins I had already had on the guitar bus.
I'm already successfully using Pipeline mono with a mic pre for individual tracks, however the same concept for 2 bus processing has got me stumped.
