So my question is: do you set up a playlist as the comp (aka the "destination" playlist) and copy and paste sections of the other playlists to it? Or do you create a new track and copy/paste sections from playlists to it? It's not really explained in the manual and I'm having trouble visualizing how the process works.
Not exactly what you're looking for as this is not related to playlists per se, but maybe it helps as it demonstrates the use of stacking different pieces on a single track and how to align them in overlay mode:

If you knew all that already, nevermind.
