I am trying to combine multiple song projects into one large project, but am not sure if it is possible.  I will explain, I record and master one song at a time, and set up each new song as  project to post to YouTube.  Therefore, each song has it's own presets on the Projects page for the Master and Post panels to make it sound as I want it for that song.  I want to be able to combine all the songs I have done this way, name several different projects, into one large Project, such as you would a CD.  However, I want to be able to carry over each individual mastered mix for each song and retain all the presets for each 'track' on the new large projects page, so the final large Project, when it is burned onto a CD or other device, will retain all the individual presets for each song.  The only thing that seems available now is to burn each individual project into a .wav file, and then drag that .wav file into the new large project.  However, that results in a loss of sound quality for each individual song when you do this.  I want to be able to have all the individual projects, with their individual presets, on one large project page, and then be able to burn that entire collection to one .wav file or other format to try and retain as much quality as possible.

    I hope I have explained this properly, and thank you for your help.

That's what the project page is for. Under file create a new project and add the song files to it. Studio One will open the song file to bounce it to a wave so you can adjust all them of only one to master/ finalize it so that everything will be same volume, set time between tracks, ect. And if you want to change the edit of a track you can jump back and forth. Hopefully this video helps .
