We have just seen the video for bouncing in place and the reason for Hybrid Tracks. But this made me think - why do we need seperate Audio & Instruments Tracks if Hybrid Tracks do the job of both? Why not just Hybrid Tracks all the time which work dependent on what instruments we insert or audio we use with them?

Basically all Tracks, also send tracks can be used for both. But the reason is the recording. On audio tracks you record audio and on midi tracks you record midi. Only this is the reason for a separation of both.

Reaper for example has only one type of tracks and this can be an Audio, Midi, Send/Return track. The track automatically recognizes the recording method due to the input channel you select (Audio channel for Audio, Midi for Midi) and records in that proper way.

I have to say that I raelly like this idea and I like this on reaper.
