So, digesting all this, and thinking about assembling a lieder or song recital, if one wants to keep PMX snappy by having just the recorded clips that make up the selected edit takes in the timeline, and creating a separate PMX project for each song, rendering to individual wavs that are then finally put into the separate mastering timeline project, ...

There doesn't seem much point at all in having any of it setup as Source Destination. :?

True, you can edit quite satisfactorily by just having the number of tracks as you used in the session, and then drag in each take from the Media Manager as you need it. It begins to make more sense when you use Pyramix for tracking as well, then you just need to modify your tracking session to use SD editing, so it flows more sensibly.

SD editing does have some things going for it, especially with projects with a lot of edits. If you're doing lieder, and there are only one or two edits per song, then it's really up to how you wish to work.

One thing for sure - if you're going to be doing this on a regular basis, by all means create Project Templates for your most common working situations. Set up a SD editing session and save as a Template - once. From then on, all the heavy lifting has been done, and you can just proceed with mounting the appropriate folders and off you go. Same thing goes with tracking and/or mixing and mastering. Once you've figured out how you like to work in any given situation, make a Template for it. The Template holds all your settings - including plug-ins. For example, I'm really fond of the Pyramix VU meter plug-in, but I'd rather it behave according to the North American SMPTE standard as regards level indications and ballistics - I did that once in my Templates, and I've never looked back. Same deal with tracking sessions and talkback through the Monitor window - a finicky and time consuming configuration reduced to a single mouse click - gotta like that.

Our typical CD project has around 400 edits, and 12 to 25 CD tracks. I can't imagine doing this kind of work without source-destination editing. A CD may progress through 2 or 3 different kinds of Pyramix project, starting out as a multitrack source destination edit, progressing into a project optimized for automated mixing, then into a pretty basic 2 track project where the CD is sequenced.

Even the CD sequence project will likely be source-destination. We tend to take the intervals between movements very seriously, and have a work method where the producer conducts me through the pauses he desires. Another advantage to doing source-destination editing when sequencing is that I can have clips of room tone available to cut in where required.

Source-destination is a very fast way to work. The only thing slow about source-destination is the first day learning how it works, and it's advantages.
