Ok I think you have missunderstand why I wanted to deactivate the channel when muting in the first place.
I only want to do that when I am completely done with the instrument track (or whatever it is) and have done a bounde to audio and use the audiofile instead of the instrument track. And to be able to go back to the instrument track if I need to edit something. (This is when I have like 30 instrument tracks that I have bounced down, and then want to deactivate all the instrument tracks, which take really long)
Maybe it´s not a good idea to have the channel deactivated when muting (or the option to), but maybe a NEW button on the tracks that you can deactivate it on then…
I have actually started using Logic pro now instead because I´m on mac, and cubase have some serious performance issues for me :S:S:S… In logic I don´t even have to think about this since everything just runs perfectly, don´t need to bounce or deactivate anything.
Quite dissapointed about this with cubase 7
Maybe it will run better for mac users in the future? I hope so because this is not acceptable, far from.
