Hello, Please I need help!

I want to do a live Sound on Sound mixdown to single stereo track! I know the method that the video suggest ( go to the song tab and select the "Export Mixdown" tab). I already know how to do that. My question is how do I do it live, like Normal mixdown, bouncing all tracks to a single stereo track. I have tried using the bounce feature. I can not get that to bounce all the tracks, it only seems to do just one track. I have been tring to figure this out for over a month now I am really get frustrated. I can not burn any of my songs to CD because the mixdown creates unedited tracks.

Example: I have an String section that I want the volume to in crease in the chorus, and not to be the same volume the entire track.

?Answer? If your going to tell me to use the Automation feature, I don't want to use automation, I want to do it myself live. Does anyone have an answer. I am using Studio One 3 Artist, please don't tell me to upgrade to Professional, I don't have the money!!!

Thanks, Shock

1.  Route everything to a group bus, not the master bus.

2.  Create a new stereo audio track.  

3.  Assign the input of the audio track to the group bus.

4.  Put the audio track into record and record whatever happens in realtime.
