What is a bus?

Hi everyone

I always see posts about bus etc. For example in Cubase.

What is a bus? Is it the same like a return track and is it made for effects?

A buss is a track you can use to route a group of tracks to in order to affect that group of instruments as a whole group. For example, you can route all your drum tracks to a buss to affect the drum kit as a whole instead of kick, snare, hi hat, etc individually. All vocal buss, guitar buss are just other examples.

If you have any questions feel free to ask

I hope this helps
