Route output audio track to a bus track

Like Pro Tools!
Route output audio track to a bus track and for another audio track choose the bus as an audio input.
I use this method a lot to record an audio track with an attached plugin. This allows me to avoid loading my project with guitar amp simulation plugins for example and keep the best sound on this audio track. It's a way of working that I've had for years and I can not do without!

How is this any different from routing the output (or send) of a channel (A) to a bus (B) to the input of another channel (C)?

Hello Niles,


even with your explanation it's not trivial!
because the bus track is created automatically in stereo track and thus not visible for a mono audio track. What would be nice is that the bus track can be seen even if it is stereo and choose the send channel L or R, as in PT ;-)

but it's still good, I'll manage ;-)
