New mixer...
I am not sure what to make of it..
I assume you can not use any Real Tracks, Drums, or Midi Tracks that would follow changes in chord sheet in those "Utility" tracks. Correct?
Thank you.

Yes. That's correct.

Isn't this new mixer something similar to what you suggested a couple of years ago?

Did I...?

I was (am) a avid proponent of a mixer that would have more channels for Real tracks/ Midi tracks that would respond to chord changes. Not just audio tracks. That stuff is what DAWs are for.

I mean, there is probably some (very limited) usage to this and probably a good starting point, but this does not solve: Having more tracks that will respond to chord changes and settings "at the bar".

I wouldn't be surprised if these tracks end up being fully functional BIAB tracks in the long run. There could well be a lot of programming behind getting fully functionality.

Read an example how I'm using the utility tracks in the thread by JohnJohnJohn about using RealTracks in the Utility Tracks.
