Hi - thanks for your reply and the shortcut. Just to clarify, I'm talking about instrument tracks rather than audio tracks. So while creating a new instrument will automatically create a new channel for that instrument in the mixer, it WON'T automatically create a sequencer track to go along with this channel---it will only create a new sequencer track for the instrument itself. The only way (that I've found) to create a new sequencer track for each channel involves clicking on the Mix unit in the rack. If that makes sense.
