Currently demoing the PRO version and I'm running into an issue when trying to use the simple command to "add bus for selected channels".

If I create a BUS and just route tracks to it it works but if I even select a single track it gives an error:
"Scripting Exception
File: Create Tracks.js

Line: 177

functions.connectChannel is not a function"

I tried it with multiple tracks from BATTERY 4, tried it by selecting an instance of Kontakt and Sublab, and even by just selecting a simple audio track (a loop) and selecting the command and all lead to the same error.  Is this a known bug?

EDIT: To respond to the first answer.  
I am not routing to any external midi/instrument keyboards.
If I create a simple audio track (mono) and click "create bus for selected tracks"  I still get the error.

Are you by any chance selecting MIDI/Instrument tracks that are routed to external keyboards?

If you create a new audio track, select it, right-click and "create bus for selected tracks", do you still get the error?

Regardless, you shouldn't have to see that type of error pop up on your screen

And even if you are doing something odd, the software should just say, "Don't do that.  It doesn't make sense"
