the thing to remember about the new inline mixer is - it takes something (a rack) and expands it out into mixer tracks.
Whereas a 'fold tracks to group' takes a lot of things and turns them into one thing.

so in a way the two items are the opposites of each other.
The inline mixer shows you more, a group-fold shows you less

but both of them have two modes: show one/show all and the implementation DOES look much like folded tracks.

but got your point.

I have been reading the Live 7 manual about the racks mixer / folded tracks, and have to say that it seems to have anything i want about folding tracks features i need.

Betatesters out there: Am i missing something?

if you want to group a midi track and an audio track together - you cannot do it
if you want to group two audio tracks together then - you cannot do it
if you want to group two different midi tracks together - you cannot do it

if you want to show the chains of a rack on a midi track - you can do that

Thanks Angstrom... i guess also that the 'unfold' thing only works in session view (not in arrangement one)
