|Summary||0003017: The "mute" track button doesn't work by default|
Right-clicking on the mute button of a track reveals several options to mute: pre fader, post fader, control out, main out.
However, by default, none of these options are checked, which means the mute button is ineffective, which looks a lot like a bug.
Setting "main out" as default seems a more sensible options:
- Novice users will have the plain mute they want
- Advanced users who expect more options from this button will try right-clicking
|Additional Information||IRC log:|
<ronj> bugreport (?): Clicking the record button of a track mutes the track, and the mute (m) button is ineffective. I'm using Ardour 2.8.7 compiled from source / ubuntu studio 9.10 / ffado
<ronj> note: the behaviour is correct when recording (hitting record actually switches recording on), but not when playing back
<dissected> ronj, try right-clicking on the various buttons and explore the different options
<ronj> dissected, thanks! I did not know about these pre/post fader and control/main out. Still, I think what most users expect by default is a simple brutal mute thus "main out" seems a better default to me. Am I missing something? Has it been discussed? Should I file a bug?
<ronj> The current design means these options are more discoverable _if_ the user thinks about right-clicking the mute button (I did not). Else it's just frustating and looks like a bug.
<dissected> ronj, I still consider it a bug
<ronj> agreed, I'm adding it to the tracker
