|Summary||0006752: Multi-Track Templates|
|Description||This feature has been requested a number of times in slightly different terms, but I think it amounts to the same thing:|
Have the ability to add multiple pre-defined tracks to an existing session.

There doesn't seem to be much discussion of this I could find beyond the above.
This is *very* useful in the following workflow: We have started building a song with a basic set of tracks (e.g., click, vox, guitar). Sometime later we wish to add more sophisticated accompaniment (drum tracks/buses will probably be the most common).
In general, it would add considerably to the flexibility and efficiency of building up a session.
On the face of it, this seems like it might be a shoo-in given the very cool existing single-track-template/dupe features, i.e., just save a template containing pointers to multiple tracks (selected by the user).
SONOR has the proposed feature:
Simply select a bunch of tracks and choose "Save as template...."

It's a 3D app rather than a DAW, but I really like Blender's approach to this. Import lets you open a blend file and select a single or multiple elements from that file to import.
I'd find a similar approach in Ardour to be far more useful than a template system. You could import tracks but not audio, or even a single plugin from existing sessions or ones specifically created as templates.
