Cakewalk lets you play back any combination of tracks at one time by changing each track’s status. You can control the status of each track with the individual controls that are on every track, or with the global controls in the Control Bar’s Mix module. For more information about the Mix module, see Mix module.Figure 106. The Mix module.A. Mute B. Solo C. Arm D. Input Echo E. Bypass All Effects F. Live Input PDC Override G. Exclusive Solo H. Dim Solo I. Automation Read (playback) J. Enable/Bypass Plug-In Upsampling K. Clear All Automation Write Enables L. Offset mode
While playback is in progress, you can mute and unmute tracks in any combination, which means you can hear only the tracks that you want. You can change the status of a track in the Track view, the Console view, the Track Inspector, or the Mix module in the Control Bar. If a track is both muted and soloed, it does not play. Mute has precedence.The track status is saved with the Cakewalk project file. If you save a Cakewalk project as a standard MIDI File, however, all tracks are saved without mute, solo, or archive indicators.
