So, wondering if this is normal.
Say I have 4 vocal tracks. Those 4 tracks are bussed to a GROUP called “vocals”.
On 2 of the vocal tracks I’m using SEND 1 to go to an FX CHANNEL with reverb.
If I solo the GROUP channel, the FX bus is not solo’d. So I only get the dry signals from the audio tracks only. The FX CHANNEL is not solo’d along with the group, even though there are source audio tracks that use an fx channel.
In order to get the FX channel I either have to 1) go to the FX channel and solo it manually. Or 2) unsolo / resolo each audio channel that uses a send in order to get the FX channel to solo too.
Is this normal behavior? This seems very odd to me - or something that could be a preference setting.
I would think, when you solo a group, that it plays all source tracks AND any FX channels connected to those source tracks. Otherwise, when you solo a group, you may not be hearing what it actually sounds like in the mix.
EDIT: I think I may have just figured it out - Solo Defeat should solve this?
