What is a Bus?
Sorry to ask such a lame question, but I'm confused as to what a Bus is in Ardour and how to use it. I'm not an experienced recorder at all, and I feel like I'm lacking some basic knowledge I need in order to really use Ardour effectively.
As of now, I understand how to add effects to a track through the mixer panel, and I am under the impression a Bus can be used to do something similar to that plus a whole lot more.
So I guess my question is, after adding a Bus, what can I do with it and how do I do it?
I've tried Googling a bunch of stuff trying to find a tutorial or a walkthough or a manual. I have what I believe to be an official Ardour manual bookmarked, but in reading the section about Tracks and Buses (2.6), it only addresses tracks.
