Sure... for editing. But I'm talking about comping. Unless I'm wrong, you have to have all lanes open for each track where you want to visually see the current take being played back. So, when comping drums you would probably at least want the kick, snare, and overheads lanes showing. If you have 4 takes. that's 12 lanes in addition to your 8 tracks of drums. That's 20..., and that's only 4 takes, and not showing you the tom or room mics which come into play when deciding where your edits are.
Also, if you've punched in along the way while doing takes it starts to really fall apart. Takes don't switch within the group because they're not exactly the same length. I get the message "Tracks in this folder are not in sync. Group editing could fail!"
I'm new to Cubase (20 days left on trial as of today) so if I'm missing something, I would love to know.
