A track folder contains tracks in the Track pane of the Track view. Track folders make larger projects much easier to manage—you can group different types of tracks in their own folder: vocals, soft synths, ReWire instruments, drums, etc.The main characteristics of a track folder are:
You can edit all the tracks in the folder as if you were editing a single track—especially valuable for drum tracks. The track folder displays a composite clip in the Clips pane of all the clips in the folder. Selecting a time range in the composite clip selects data in all the enclosed tracks in the same time range; now you can edit all the tracks in the folder by editing the selected area of the composite clip.
A folder can contain any type of track—you can put MIDI, audio, and synth tracks in the same folder.
You can archive, mute, solo, arm, or input monitor all the tracks in a folder with one click—just click the Archive, Mute, Solo, Arm, or Input Echo button on the track folder.A.
