As a musician who started with the Comodore 64 MIDI sequencer + click
sync to an analog audio recorder and Atari ST MIDI sequencer + SMPTE
sync to an analog audio recorder, I'm accustomed to traditional analog
recording and mastering.
Ok, I could take care about the track order for Qtractor.
What exactly is the track order?
Is the last track, the track I added at last to a Qtractor session or is
it the last track for the track view? And if I use additionally other
applications too, does Ardour2 or Rosegarden or ... handle it the same
way as Qtractor does?
