Instant mute as a Default option

darenagerdarenager Between a rack and a hardware place

Holding shift to mute instantly is a bit of a pain when performing with multiple machines, can we please have single button instant mute as an option? In fact I think I’d prefer the opposite behaviour to what we currently have, instant mute to not require shift and cued muting to require shift, it makes more sense to me that way, as typically instant muting is well, instant, where cued muting happens after the specified timebase.

    I agree, I also miss the option to have cued mutes on the next beat/bar. I often have tracks with variations built-in ( 4 bar chord progression over 8 bars ) so really they can be cued to the 4 bar boundary

    +1 great idea. I'd love to be able to automate track muting as well (so I can set up cuts/drops within tracks easily)

    Would a latching shift button, as has been requested, do the trick?

    @minigoat I +1 for the latching shift but I don’t think it would replace exactly and I think both latching shift and instant mute would be good to have.

    Yeah I agree and also agree that there should be multiple modes to choose from, per track.

    Some tracks I only want to launch once (one-shot)
    Others should play until I release the pad (nice for live playing with samples)
    Other should loop, but some should sync to a bar of 16 beats, so when you mute, it first finishes the bar, no matter what other tracks are doing.
    Some should synch to only 4 beat, others to 1 beat.
    Others should mute immediately.

    +1 - and please recording automations of track mutes!
