As good an all-purpose cymbal as there is. The thinner ones excel in acoustic music, the heavier ones shine in slightly louder settings. They’re wonderful.
They can come across as a tad “vanilla”. And in an era where technicolor and novelty is the order of the day, they can be overlooked...
I don't use the video, so I'll be no help on that.
Also, I never get into BUS, Sends, etc. All my tracks are (by default) output to MAIN, and that's fine for everything I do.
In a nutshell:
1. Add a track for the background music. (Keyboard shortcut "T".)
2. Song-Import File. Browse for...
Yes - make a stereo track for the backing track and import it. Once it's in, you can create new tracks for anything else you want to record over it.
I missing the template issue. I record on Studio One all the time and have never made or used a template.
Feel free to PM me and I can...
Wolf nailed it. Make a couple tracks, import in your backing track(s) (mp3, WAV), then make new tracks for recording new stuff and go. There may be other ways but this is very easy and works perfectly.
Speaking in decades ...
1735 to 1745. Bach, Vivaldi, et al brought baroque to its apotheosis.
1785 to 1795. Mozart and Beethoven in their prime.
1915 to 1925. Stravinsky, Shoenberg, Strauss et al cracked open the tonal code.
But on topic ...
1952 to 1962. Bebop matured, the modernists...
Hmmm ... Elvin?

Modern K’s/K Cons. 22” Medium Ride, 16-18-20 Crashes.
My old A's are pretty thin and definitely not "loud". Low-pitched, splashy, and sit nicely in the music. I have 14" hats, too and while they are perfectly fine, they are higher-pitched and a bit "quick". I like the lower, slower feeling of the 15's.
I went through a handful of 20 and 22 Bliss about 15 years ago. They were all good to very good, one 22 was spectacular. At the time I had two 22’s, one around 2350 g, and one at 2525 g. A buddy wanted to buy one so I told him he could choose. Of course he chose the spectacular one. Argh...
