What is a Session Template?
Once you’ve created a session and set up your track routing, plug-ins, etc, you may want to reuse that setup for a future project. A template contains everything except the actual audio and midi data: track layouts, plug-ins, and your channelstrip EQ/Compressor/Bussing setup.
Any session can be stored as a session “template” for future sessions.
Using Session templates:
To save a template, choose Session->Save Template from the main menu, and name the template something meaningful so you can find it in the future.
To use a template, you have to create a NEW session. In the New Session dialog, there is a list of your templates, in addition to the factory-supplied templates.
Managing & Sharing session templates:
Session templates can be later renamed, edited, or shared using the Template Manager: see Templates
Where are my templates stored on disk?
Templates are stored in the user config area, under a folder called “templates”. You can find more details about the user’s config folder in Power-User Topics.
