sends vs inserts

In this video I'm going to show you the differences between using FX plugins as sends or inserts. I'll also demonstrate the advantages/disadvantages of using one method over the other. When you're first getting started working in a DAW all the different terms you might hear such as Sends, Inserts, Bus tracks, and Aux tracks can get confusing, so I hope this video helps clear some of that up for you. 

The guitar track in this video originates from a track called Sink It by Camaro 67.
