midi MUTE / SOLO

I can’t mute or solo midi tracks

I can’t get MIDI tracks to mute/solo with internal OR external synth. Anyone else experienced this?

(Using version 4.04 Build 1801)


Never had a problem with it myself, but I’m not running that build.

No problems in 1806.

I just threw 1801 back on my box just to check this out and didn’t see any problems with either VSTis or MIDI out to my external synth. I didn’t try any ReWire, DXi, or soundcard synth stuff, though.

Using a bit of imagination, the only thing I can think of that’s remotely similar to what you’ve described is that mute has no effect on a track when solo is active, and if the solo buttons were hidden (via the popup menu), it would really confuse things–but it doesn’t explain solo not working, though. Other than that, the only thing I can think of is that it’s a routing thing–perhaps you give more detail on your setup (OS, soundcard(s), drivers, etc.)?
