    Is busing even really necessary in protools? 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 protools other than to make veterans feel comfortable?

    I use busing to asign one reverb to several tracks- save on your cpu power that way-

    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.
