When a track is muted, Cakewalk processes the track while playback is in progress so that you can unmute the track without stopping playback. If you have lots of muted tracks, this can place a heavy load on your computer. Archived tracks, on the other hand, don’t place any load on your computer. Therefore, if there are tracks you want to keep but don’t need to play, you should archive them instead. When you mute or unmute a track while playback is in progress, there may be a slight delay before you hear the effect of the change. This is to be expected and does not indicate a hardware or software problem.

Right-click a track strip and choose MSR > Mute on the pop-up menu.
Do one of the following:
2. Do one of the following:
Click the track’s Archive button .
Right-click a track strip and choose MSR > Archive on the pop-up menu.
