Topic: Why is MUTE global in TotalMix?
When you mute an input channel in TotalMix the channel is muted on all outputs, not just the active submix. This has always annoyed me and I was hoping it would be changed in TotalMixFX. But it's still the same.
While I admit that there may be cases when you want to mute an input signal for all monitor mixes, I think there are much more cases in which you want to mute a channel for only one monitor mix (e.g. the control room mix).
This is why, to my knowledge, in most analog consoles a pre-fader aux send still receives signal from a muted channel. This way, the recording engineer can mute a channel in his CR-mix while the artists still hear the signal through their headphones.
At least I think it would be great if there was an option that makes the Mute button individual for each submix instead of global.
