Step-by-step model for a project..."regions" vs. "playlists", etc.
I'm a little confused as to how things like "regions", "playlists", "tracks", etc. work, and the ardour manual is still a bit vague at this point. What I want to know is what all these things mean in the "big scheme".
For example, let's say I want to record a total of 8 songs. I'm assuming you do this in one "session". Each song has 8 tracks. Each take for each track is a separate "playlist", correct?
Assuming that's true, what exactly is a region? Would it basically be used as a "song" division, or something else? Basically, I got the impression from what I read in the manual that somehow you can separate out parts of your recording into different songs that you want to put on a CD when you export it to burn to a CD.
Basically, my questions are what would I use a region for, vs. a playlist, and how do I make these divisions in my "session" such that I can find individual songs; essentially a time range between all the tracks that is somehow marked...
Beyond that, is there a way to rearrange these ranges to get them in the order you want them on the CD?
I guess this is just a generalized "how do I produce things on ardour" type of question, but I really can't figure it out so far, and I don't really have much, if any, real experience with real computer recording software to be able to make any guesses.
Thanks for any help,
