Is there a way to do this? Every thread I've come across has mentioned using VCA faders (which I'm pretty sure is only in HD?).

What I'd like to do:

1. Say I have guitar, piano, drums all sent to reverb channel via aux
2. I want to mute the guitar, piano, drums dry signal, but still hear the reverb...

Does this make sense, and is this possible? Thank you.

have you tried pre-sends to the aux track?

Agreed... Pre fader sends will let you accomish this..

course, in a common mixing environment,
this can prove unwieldy.

for ex, still hearing the wrong FX when solo-ing other trax;
and not tracking volume or automation moves…

i have a template which uses submixes,
and ctl-clic-ing the outputs of FX outputs
to send to an FX monitor aux.

then, when needed, mute the sub,
solo the track,
and un mute the FX aux,
and you hear exactly what you want, nothing else.

and with men loc tied to window configs,
it happens very fast…

This worked - thank you very much such an easy fixed and it has always frustrated me.

I have yet another option, depending on your gear. I use a Presonus Central Station monitor/source selector, so I feed a stereo AUX send to a pair of outputs that feed the AUX inputs of the Central Station(and the sends are normally muted). A simple Ctrl-click on a send(even on an AUX track) and switch my source on the CS, and I can solo anything in PT, even during tracking(without affecting anybody's headphone mix):D
