The que mix feature is a great feature, but if you have sent a track to a but, the que mix fader dissapears. Please implement functionality to send to cue mix even if the track / bus is routed to other busses.

This is quite usefull when overdubbing after the mix phase has started.

This is a huge problem for anyone who tracks and uses buses. Say for ease and speed of setting up a recording session you have each live instrument sent to its own bus. You can balance multiple sets of multi mic'd instruments quickly with a bus fader. Listen to the cue and it does not see anything you do on the bus. Inserts, panning, muting and volume are all ignored if its on the bus.  Give us the option to lock it with everything else

I would also like Cue sends to be available on BUS channels

I'd love this, too. I have an analog summing setup so my tracks are routed to busses and I'd prefer to have the same setup for tracking and mixing. I can use aux sends for now, but I'd rather use the cue system proper.

Great idea this would be very helpful in tracking sessions and more easily transitioning them to mixing sessions (can preserve my desired bus setups)

The cue system taking away cue functionality when a track is routed to a bus completely dissolves any usefulness it has for me. I have to use normal sends to outputs instead, which I don't want to do. The cue system is good if it allows me to use buses, which it currently does not. As it stands, I have to send every track to the Master if I want to have access to its Cue send. That's horribly restrictive and does not reflect how literally any other system works. Please fix this.

I definitely think this feature should be added. I really like the cue mix option, but I prefer to start my sessions using a template that already has my individual tracks routed to busses and not being able to have individual tracks in a cue mix when they aren't routed to the main is kind of a bummer.
