Default Tracks automatically unmute on playback.....

I noticed the other day when I was in an overdub session that all of my tracks started to unmute upon playback. Of course this was really very irritating. I had to go through the rest of the session and mute all the regions one by one. This was on an HD system.

Now I am at home working on m-powered and the same thing is happening on a completely different session. I mute all my tracks and as soon as I go for that spacebar....... everything unmutes. This time I can't mute all my regions as this is a commercial and there are just too many regions.

If anyone out there has had a similar situation I'd really appreciate it if you could help me out!

Were the tracks automation settings on latch or touch at one time when you muted them? I know that seems simple, but I have done it myself...

Default Re: Tracks automatically unmute on playback.....

Think I figured it out actually but this is very weird.

It turns out that it wasn't happening on all tracks so I made the assumption that maybe there was some automation happening.
On every track that was unmuting there was a single breakpoint at the same spot but it was in mute and volume automation mode. Thus driving me nuts.

I don't know how it happened as I never put those tracks in mute automation mode. I am assuming this might have been the same problem at the studio as well, but it was on an entirely different session. Something to look out for anyways. Thanks for the
