Add Mute Switch / Parameter To Mix Tool Plugin

asked Aug 25, 2016 in Studio One Feature Requests by LMike (14,670 points)

MixTool needs a mute switch as shown in the graphic below.  The lack of muting anything in an Extended FX Chain (via automation and/or via the macro screen toggle buttons) is a really big gap in the concept and greatly limits the possibilities there.

The gain only goes to -24 so that doesn't work without stacking 2-3 of them up.  Mute can either be a literal mute or a toggle between the volume knob level and infinity gain, same result

Yesssss! This is needed. I don't think automating the mixer is a good idea. The mixer is, in my opinion, a static thing that is only tweaked by hand. Volume and mute automation should be done separately, and a plugin like Mixtool is the ideal place.

YES please!

I'm using the mute function of Ableton's mixtool all the time and greatly miss it in Studio One.

This would allow automating signal paths in splitters, for instance if one wants to feed a reverb in a splitter with a specific part of the track and then stop feeding it but still hearing the decay of the reverb.
