Add a patch bus

In addition to the 64 global busses available for concert-wide routing, you can add patch-specific busses for routing inside a patch—using patch busses does not contribute to the global maximum. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as a local volume control for layered patches.

A patch bus is available only for the patch you add it to. Patch busses for each patch are numbered sequentially starting from 1. Two different patches may each have a patch bus named “Patch Bus 1,” but each one is unique to the patch it was added to. The signal flows of the two patch busses are completely independent.
