Why don't the track mute and solo functions work in Studio One 4.6?

:  I just upgraded Studio One Professional from 3.5 to 4.6.  All is well except for a problem with the track mute and solo functions.  They light up when engaged, but don’t work.  When a track is soloed, it lights up, but all tracks continue to play, even tho’ their mute buttons are on.  Also, when a track is muted, it lights up and the volume drops slightly, but you can still hear it. Is there a control somewhere for these functions?  This was no problem with version 3.5, or those before it.  I'm using a Windows based Creation Station from Sweetwater, with the 192 Mobile interface.

Similar circumstances. I just upgraded from 3.5 to 4.6 (on Windows 10) and this is the first thing I noticed.  Testing further, mute and solo for tracks seems to work as expected when replaying in the Main output; the issue is with the monitor/Cue Mix (I'm using selected outputs 7/8 for cue mix with my AudioBox 1818).  Further, I've found that instrument tracks CAN be muted (in cue mix) but not soloed, and audio tracks can't be muted OR soloed (even though the indicators light up).  There is some audible difference when solo is selected for example (as if the sound from other tracks are dampened a bit) but all the tracks are still audible.

I was having the same problem, then I found there was a hidden track unmuted.

Same problem here. When I solo certain tracks they sound gets muted by 50% somehow. I also cannot use Pipeline XT anymore when I want to print tracks. Whenever i try to mixdown a track where Pipeline is engaged, the track is rendered with 50% of volume and a muffled sound.
