Default Possible free and cross-platform alternative to Massey Talkback

Meldaproduction MUtility (in the free bundle) has two options that are of interest here, that were added in v8.1:
  • Silence when Playback is ON
  • Silence when Playback is OFF

I'm away from my rig right now, so I can't verify this... But the documentation implies that this operates as a transport-sensing cut switch.

So if you use it as the last insert on an AUX track set to your talkback or listenback mic, then enable Silence when Playback is ON, signal will only pass when the transport is stopped.
