Solo within a soloed group? How.

I’m soloing 4 instruments. I want to hear one of them in solo quickly, then return back to the previous soloed state of 4 instruments.

Is there any way to do this quickly?

unsolo the others…?
Use Listen…?

thanks, i’ll check out Listen.
This seems like a pretty standard problem with likely a well-known solution, if any.

Let’s say I’m working on a tune with multiple tracks and I want to solo the bass, kick, rhythm guitar, and vox…

To hear JUST the vox, I have to scroll up and down the whole project to find the other soloed tracks in order to un-solo them.

Try hitting the “mute all” button at the top and then hit solo on the tracks you want to hear.

Regards. :sunglasses:

No need to scroll.

  1. Deactivate all solo states.
  2. Solo the vox track.

I don’t want to deactivate all solo states.
I want to temporarily solo the vox, work on it, then unsolo it and be back in my previous working solo state with just the 4 instruments.

I find I frequently want to do this - to solo within a soloed group.

Then use Listen, you will need to use the Control Room for that.
Open vst-connections (F4) enable Control Room and then set Output to Not Connected, in the Studio tab set the monitor to that same connection you just unconnected.

Decided to add the listen button to my arrange window as well, and assign a key command to it.
