If I understand you correctly, it happens because when you unpack the take folder, the newly created tracks are assigned to the original instrument that was used - ie they're all effectively addressing the same instrument in the same channel strip. Mute one of these tracks, and it does indeed mute them all. Couple of suggestions: either Right- or Control-click on the track header to reassign the track objects, or create new tracks using the "New Track with Duplicate Setting" option, then move the various takes onto them. Hope this helps... Cheers, MJS.
