Here’s my situation:
I have multiple MIDI tracks routed to a rack instrument with multiple outputs enabled. MIDI track 1 corresponds with outputs 1 & 2, MIDI track 2 corresponds with outputs 3 & 4, etc.
Here’s my problem:
When I press the solo button on MIDI track 1, outputs 1 & 2 from the instrument become muted. I must solo both the MIDI track and the corresponding output from the instrument in order to hear the instrument. I have tried creating a link between the two tracks (by right clicking, selecting link selected channels, and choosing to link only mute/solo), but this came with its own problems, and creating these links for every MIDI track is tedious.
At the end of the day, all I want is for a single mute/solo button to correspond with my track, and I would very much prefer to use the button on the MIDI track, since that is where I spend 99% of the time when sequencing; I almost never touch the instrument output until I’m ready to mix.
If there was some way I could set all of the instrument outputs to never mute, even when a track elsewhere is soloed, this would solve my issue. Is this possible?
