Track mute and MIDI

Hi, it would be great to have an option at the setup menu that lets us specify whether or not muting a track also mutes it from sending MIDI.

In my setup I use software instruments while on the go and hardware instruments when at the studio, this way I could just mute the tracks when I’m at the studio and still have them sending MIDI to my hardware instruments.
At the moment I’m bringing their volume down in the mixer, which works, but then I have to manually set the levels again (and remember the values) when I’m on the go, which is not really ideal.

thanks
