Can we have an option to change default routing to a bus other than Main?

I like to set up a song to have a "Mix" bus.  I would like to have the option to choose to have all tracks default to the Mix bus instead of the Main Out.

Instrument tracks (like a instance of Presence, e.g.) often reset themselves to the Main out and ignore all the routing they were supposed to maintain.

It's irritating.

You can already do this. Just create a bus, which you might call "Mix bus", then select all channels and busses and choose the new bus as the destination.

As to your issue with PresenceXT, I have used it for 5 years in Studio One, it always obeys the routing to busses that I set up for it. So, I suggest that there is possible user error at play here.

Thanks Jonny.  I think you misunderstand me.  I've had the Mix Bus routing paradigm in place for a long time.  What I want is an option to have all of the new instrument tracks default to that mix bus without me having to take the time to route them myself.  Sometimes, you're in the flow and not looking at the Mixer for long periods of time.  A check box for each song would be fine.

As to the other thing, not so much User Error, but an unexpected result of unrendering a track that I appended from another song.
