try holding option/alt or the command/control key when clicking the arm buttons. If that doesnt work, then look up how to edit the "options.txt" file for ableton. There are instructions on how to allow multiple tracks to be armed at once

The light red arm button means that this track is selected while your Push is in note mode.

Yeah I forgot to clarify that bit. The dim red arm button acts just like a track is armed, but it hasnt been armed the typical way; it is just a track selected with Push, which automatically arms whatever track it is on. The dim light just signifies that it was armed via the Push track selection method.

I also think it's a Push thing, since I don't have Push and have never seen the light red button.
