I really thought this would be possible, but for the life of me, I cannot figure it out and it really has me stuck on implementing some ideas in my latest project. I am wanting to automate the muting on/off of particular layers found within a program.
Let us say I have a single program containing 3 layers. I want all these 3 layers to play back simultaneously, but not all the time, I want to be able to drop layers out of playback when I choose and then be able to bring them back in at my choosing. I know I can mute layers in the program tree, but I cannot automate this to happen within the project itself. Right clicking on the mute button brings up no way to assign that button to a cc for automating like just about every other parameter in Halion 4 and enabled the R/W functionality of the midi track in question from within Cubase, does not record me muting/un-muting the layers as I press the button in the Halion program tree.
I really don’t want to have a hundred separate midi tracks each containing a layer that should be combined within a single program, so how does one automate the mute button of layers found within programs? I find it useless to have layers within programs, unless you want each and every layer to always be playing at the same time, all the time, which I don’t. I really thought I would have had more flexibility and freedom in this.
I hope I am wrong and someone can sort me out with what I am missing. This is crucial to getting my current track flowing the way I would like.
Thanks for taking time to read and reply!
