Is busing even really necessary in Pro Tools? Lets say you have 5 mics on a cab, would you bus all 5 to one track, or can you leave each mic to its own track? Anyone know any real reason for busing on Pro Tools other than to make veterans feel comfortable?

Well if you are actually going to use multiple tracks of the same recorded pass, at the same time, busing can make compressing/eq'ing them as a group much easier.

Sometimes I bus my drum tracks to a stereo bus and strap an eq and compressor across them so that I'm effecting them as a group.

So yes, I think that busing is a very usable way to route tracks, if the situation calls for it.
