How do people accomplish this simple task which seems to be impossible in Cubase:
I want to quickly and easily (one click or a single keystroke) switch from one set of tracks muted to another set of tracks muted. For example, I have tracks 3, 4, 5 muted and I want to unmute those and mute tracks 6 and 7 with a single click. And then go back again to do a comparison.
Routing to group channels or setting up folders is too cumbersome and intrusive just to do this simple task since I generally already have routing and folders set up and don’t want to interfere with that. I had assumed mixer snapshots would do this, but, much to my dismay, mute status is not saved in the snapshot (what were they thinking?).
An older version of Cubase had a great feature called “mute groups” that made this task a breeze, but that feature was dropped long ago.
I’m guessing other people need to perform this task, so what workaround techniques do you use to accomplish this?
