Mute parts of automation lanes

It would be handy and more flexible if one could mute some parts of an automation lane and not only turn the whole lane on and off, or having to delete break points (typical use for A/B comparison, testing, temporarily deactivating a resources--intensive parameter automation on a plugin, etc.).

Assign a VCA to the track, and do that drop in automation on that.
So  selecting the track as part of VCA group or not - will allow A/B testing.

Since VCA are allowed to be nested, many interesting things can be done.

Anyway, one workaround for your needs....
