@bpeterson1123 Howdy Bruce and welcome,
If you look around this forum, you’ll find a lot of discussions about “Utility Racks”. They have many uses include encapsulating Input and Output devices, audio interfaces with different numbers (and different media) of outputs, effects, routing/splitting and transposing tricks, automated fade-in/out, etc. My utility racks include (they all start with “_” so they sort high–like a lot of other stuff I borrowed from @Torsten here in the forum):
_Bass (If I have to play left-hand bass, I can turn this on without affecting other settings, even at the last minute)
_Mixer (Keeps track of 8 color-coded faders and keeps my Behringer moterized mixer happy)
_Keyboards (switchable from 1 keyboard set up (church) to dual (band), manages splits/layers, transpose, etc.)
_FinalMaster (encapsulates different audio device output and selects Analog out for the PA or digital for the studio. Also has some “mastering-type” channel plug-ins for compression, final EQ, metering, etc.)
There’s also a sax mic rack and a flute mic rack that aren’t in every song, but they loosely fall under “Utility Racks”. With these racks, using a Song State or Bindings, I can switch the mic on or off and change the rack color (indicating the mic is hot) with my sustain pedal.
