I have a question: I have -never- really understood what is supposed to happen when one Solos just an FX channel.
I thought that one should only hear the ‘effected’ sound on that channel. (ie. the ‘wet’ sound of anything that is routed into that channel)?
I hesitate to use the ‘b’ word because I may just not get it, so I’d like an explanation.
-Sometimes- when I solo an FX channel, I -do- hear what I wrote above (just the ‘effected’ sound on any tracks that feed into it.)
But then -other- times, I’ll get the -dry- sound of one or more channels along with that effected sound.
OR sometimes, I’ll get -nothing-… in which case, I cancel all solos, then again solo that FX channel and -then- it’s like the thing resets itself and I get #1.
So… can someone explain the ‘logic’ behind how solo works on FX (and I assume also) Group channels? Or is this a… er… ‘anomaly’? Why do I sometimes hear ‘dry’ tracks (that aren’t even outputting to the FX channel)? Is there some sort of ‘precedence’ involved? (ie. does the order in which channels appear in MixConsole make a difference?)
