Group Solo / Solo group delay?
Sep 13th, 2008, 10:42
Hey gang, What I really want to achieve is "group solos". I used it extensively in ProTools and I'm trying to see what I have to do so that I can do it in Logic. Quick example, I have all my drums in one group. I can press mute on any of the drum tracks and it mutes all of them. Oddly enough, it doesn't work with the solo button. I'm trying to find a way to achieve this... so... I realized that on the Arrange window I can select all the drums (if the "Region Selection (Edit) is checked in the Group Settings) and solo them using the solo button on the transport. That's what I've been using the past few days... I can live with that... but it bugs me that there's about a second delay whenever I solo / unsolo something. For example, I got all the drums soloed and if I want to bring the bass in, I click it and there's this annoying lag before it starts playing. It really breaks the flow especially if you have deadlines. The Track Mute / Solo in the Audio Preferences is on the Fast setting. I thought this was the answer. And no, I don't want them in subgroups (putting all the drums into a bus). Thanks!Reply
