Logic Pro X Mute and Solo buttons

I have said before that it would be good if you could alt click Mutes with the same functionality as alt click Solos. Maybe LPX has this? I use LP9 at the moment.

Also, I see from LPX demos that the Mute and Solo buttons have been moved to below the fader meter. This is as it should be. So why not make them bigger? Big as the buttons on a decent recording console. If you total up the time wasted in a day achieving mouse accuracy to hit these buttons you would probably be very surprised.

They could also make the scribble strip deeper to accomodate more detailed legends.

Food for thought.

Shift-Option-click toggle all Solo buttons. Command-clicking does the same on the Mute buttons. AFAIK, there are no Alt keys on Macs...

Getting used to Key commands (M for mute and S for solo) could come handy

Have you considered using the Track notes?

Food for thought.

Thanx for your input!

Yes. You can do this with Mute and Solo on the tracks as well as in the mixer.

I think they are big enough now:



Aditionally, in Logic X you can make the channelstrips a little wider and the buttons grow to fill the space.

Well, there is not much difference between Option and Alternate and since about ten years the Mac keyboards are also labelled with "alt".
