Great that I can import a mix as a track using the 'import to track' function. But then I always forget that I've done it, and wonder why everything's twice as loud as it should be, and the faders don't work properly! Would love the option for the import to be automatically muted (idelly the import even, not just the track mute button.)

Amazed that this question hasn't been asked before, and apologies if it has cos I sure couldn't find it!

Where is this "Import to Track" function?  I don't see it in Macros, or in the Song or Track menus.

Could you describe your workflow and what it is you are trying to accomplish when you import something and say you don't want to hear it?

It's an option on the 'Song / Export Mixdown' page. Unchecked, the mixdown is exported into the mixdowns folder. Checked, the mixdown is also re-imported as a track into the project (and, significantly, in sync). I find this useful when returning to old projects I haven't worked on for some time. Firstly everything is stored in one place, secondly I can immediately compare any adjustments I make to my previous mix(es).
