Logic Pro 9 Tweaking channels in a group.

Two suggestions to make tweaking channels in a group easier.

We all know "option - click solo".

The same functionality could be applied to mute functions as well.
In other words "option - click mute" would apply the same functionality to mutes that "option - click solo" currently has to solos.

Also, how about the ability to momentarily isolate a fader in a group in order to tweak the internal balance of a group (where volume is specified in the group setting). You could do this with, say, holding down control and moving the fader. This avoids having to deselect a channel from the group in order to adjust one fader in a group independently, and then having to reassign the fader to the group.

Maybe the blue bar below the fader knob could change temporarily to red to show that the fader is temporarily isolated from other faders in the group. Upon releasing the control button the bar would revert to blue. This visual indication would provide feedback that other faders in the group are NOT following the changes - useful if some of the channels in a group are at the other end of the mix window and not immediately visible.

I am a recording and mix engineer of many years experience.

Thanks, Jay Denson

While Logic doesn't have this specific feature, it does have a key command called Toggle Group Clutch which, when invoked, suspends the groups. So you can use this key command to toggle the status of groups between active/inactive, and use it for the type of functionality you describe. Although the only visual reference is the greyed out group indicator.
