You would do it EXACTLY the same as you would do it if there were separate song versions saved with external audio files (as with other DAWs).
The ONLY difference is the song versions are contained in one song file instead of separately (unless exported separately, if desired).
I can't think how to explain it any simpler - does this still not make sense? (happy to clarify further if not)
I understand what you mean, my point was that there's so much more you could do if it was separate files/versions in a VCS instead.

I'm simply being pragmatic because I don't believe the Props will ever allow separate audio files - but who knows?
They've surprised us before with audio and VST support.
But I would suggest there’s no practical application for such a complex and versatile system.
I just need a mix with vocals, a mix with no vocals, a mix with only some vocals, a mix with louder or softer vocals, etc. Or a mix with an extended bridge, and a mix with a truncated bridge, radio edit, etc.
I can do that in Reason now, but I can’t do it quickly or easily. I can also do that in Pro Tools, but I can’t make changes easily across multiple versions. Having separate audio doesn’t make doing this stuff any easier, it simply takes up less HD space if the audio doesn’t have to be saved with each version, and there are two ways to add this functionality in Reason. One gives you separate audio, the other potentially gives you a valuable additional feature (“versions”).
Ultimately, in my “perfect” world I REALLY don’t want to leave the DAW to save a separate version with no vocals and then to turn up the snare (or adjust a reverb, etc.) across 5 versions without having to save/load each version and make the changes 5 times. A VCS won’t make those everyday tasks any easier unless (IMO) it’s integrated into the host app.
