One nifty little feature I would like Pro Tools to implement would be to see which tracks are muted (and soloed) in the track list. In big sessions with a lot of tracks, it happens to lose sight of such tracks. I think it would be faster to scroll the track list and instantly find the muted track, and then being able to reach them faster.
When an Mix/Edit Group as specified in the Group Globals is set to Solo and Mute, all Tracks of the group follow the solo shortcut.
In most cases this is desired, but often I want to solo just one track without suspending the groups.
I know there is a modifier Ctrl (Mac) with which I could click the solo button to achieve this, But unfortunately not as a shortcut.

When soloing one or more channel, all other channel mute buttons lit up. This is not the appropriate behaviour. Their state should stay the same, just like in the edit- and mix windows. There is no reason why those mute buttons lit up, as it is already indicated that tracks are soloed, by their solo buttons being lit, as well as by the blinking clear solo button.
Would love the ability to have a "clear solo" hot-key. I know that you can map this to a, for example, EUcon, but it would be great if it also had an easy access keyboard shortcut.
Edit: I should clarify. I am aware of alt + clicking the solo-button on a track, but I am talking about a keyboard only shortcut.
Could help if the soloed playlist is scrolled out of the edit window view. One could believe to listen to... more »
Create a function to a selected track (by a clip or otherwise) becomes solo. Cubase has this feature (optional). To listen (and editing), it's fantastic. This is faster than: click + "shift S".
Add a control room pannel with a fader or knob to control the listening output volume and surround tools like mute and solo for each channel.
As you can see in the image below, in order to hear all the tracks routed to "Break Mix" I have to solo each one. It's not so bad when there are 2 tracks but with big sessions this gets complicated. As you can see in that image there are two blank spots next to "Mute" and "Solo." These could be use... more »
