Topic: TotalMix FX Exclusive Solo bug??
Please let me know if the following is a TotalMix bug or not.
This is regarding the option in TotalMix "Settings" "Exclusive Solo/PFL Mode".
When first coming across this I thought Hmm what would brother MC say? READ THE MANUAL! So I opened my fat RME manual to the TotalMix Settings section but this "Exclusive Solo/PFL Mode" setting isn't listed there so it must of been added later. I opened the Help within TotalMix & indeed this setting IS listed but no extra information was given so I assumed the following is a bug.
I have a "MAIN" submix with 2 "PHONES" which are mirrored to the MAIN submix. When "Exclusive Solo/PFL Mode" is disabled everything works fine whether using Solos or PFLs, it doesn't matter which submix I click on, the result is the same as expected because they're mirrored.
However with my submixes the same & still mirrored, when I enable "Exclusive Solo/PFL Mode" & click on my PHONES 1 & for example I Solo track 1, then 2, then 3, when I now click on the PHONES 2 or MAIN submixes, tracks 1, 2 & 3 are still Solo, kind of acting like the "Exclusive Solo/PFL Mode" setting is disabled for PHONES 2 & MAIN when it's actually enabled as it's a global setting. This doesn't only happen with my PHONES 1 submix, as in if I Solo'd track 1, 2 & 3 starting by clicking on MAIN first then PHONES 1 & PHONES 2 will act like this instead.
I thought maybe it's a cosmetic bug but the tracks do actually Solo & not just cosmetic.
As soon as I turn off one of the Solo tracks in PHONES 2 for example then all the Solos turn off for PHONES 2, but the MAIN Solos stay on unless I do the same there.
This does NOT happen in PFL Mode, only Solo Mode. When PFL is on, whatever track I turn PFL on for any mirrored submix, it does it to the same tracks in all mirrored submixes which is the correct behaviour I assume.
Thanks for your time.
