so, i guess this applies mostly for ppl who don't use "solo follows selection"

so what happens is, when u press "S", the track is soloed.
now, when u select another track and press "S", this track is "ADDED" as a solo track. (in total, u've got urself 2 soloed tracks)

So, sometimes, i found myself wanting to just "solo"ONE track only, even tho another track had been solo-enabled.

so, i made a macro and gave it a name called " True Solo"

make a macro
1. global solo

2. solo

now, this will basically turn all solos off and then solo just one track (that you have chosen).

I remapped this "True Solo" as {Alt + S} on my keyboard shortcut.

Hope this helps somebody :)

sorry if might have gotten you wrong, but isn't that standard behavior? If you simply activate Solo mode on several tracks, they all get solo'ed. But if you click Option on a Mac or Alt on a Windows PC while solo'ing the next track, only this one is in Solo mode. I made a short video to clarify my explanation:

No need for a macro.

In Studio One, if you want a command to apply to just one track, add Alt (Windows).

So, if you have the guitar track solo'd and you want to solo the bass, Alt-click on the bass track solo button.

Is that what you were looking for?
