allow tracks to play sound when they are not record enabled

Post by danny klim » Tue Jul 17, 2018 9:46 pm

Hi , i'm trying to figure out how to allow tracks to play sound when they are not record enabled. Could you please help?


I saw this in a tutorial video at some point. Currently, my tracks only play sound when they are record enabled (but only activated with the yellow activator button). I want to be able to make tracks play sound even when they are not record enabled. How can i do this?


Also, can i do this for just select tracks?

I can't help you, but maybe one of these geniuses can.

Monitor IN lets it all flow through...

...however, if you record any MIDI in that track, you'll need to switch it back to AUTO for the clip to take control.
