Soloing track Mutes Output

When I solo a track in one of my projects, the output channels are muted along with all the other tracks, thereby muting everything. I’ve seen this behaviour before, but either I’ve forgotten the solution or it’s an intermittent bug. Any ideas?




Is the Output of that track/Channel routed to the Stereo Out (or THE out)?

In this particular case it’s a 5.1 track (I’ve had the same problem with stereo tracks though), and it was routed to the Stereo Out. I re-routed it to the 5.1 Out, which caused the 5.1 Out to mute instead. Just now I tried re-routing it back to the Stereo Out and then to 5.1 again, and now it seems to be working properly…

What just happened?
