There's a limitation, in place right now, regarding saving patches and including the aux and bus routings.
The workaround is to use a Summing Stack but this is not always so elegant.Here's an alternative method:
- Create a channel strip and create one or many bus routings.
- Create tracks for the aux channel strips and make a summing stack of them.

- Open the MIDI environment and locate the original channel strip. Drag and drop it over the Sum track then delete the redundant duplicate track inside the stack.
- You will see a that the channel strips now are grouped. Save it as your new patch.

I don't know how this holds up, as it's clearly a hack, but it appears to work consistently.
Ok so I decided to try this today, because I want to save some patches. I don't get a few things:
1 - does this hack provide anything new that the summing track doesn't or is it just an aesthetic thing? Like, instead of having a summing track with the channel strip and busses inside, then you have only the channel strip and the busses?
2 - If I open a factory patch for a software instrument or even an audio patch, it creates the auxs, but when I try to save it, it doesn't save with the auxs. Is this the normal behavior and the only way is to really create tracks for the auxs and save them all together? It's just weird that it's possible since the factory patches include them and create them when necessary, but we can't save them without creating the tracks for the auxs. Am I missing something?
