Default Mute Multiple Groups

With my PT TDM/HD 7.4 is is possible for one fader to mute, only, four other faders?

yes, group the five faders, then modify the group (little down arrow next to the groups box), take it out of follow global (uncheck), and then select what things you'd like to group about these tracks only in the Attributes tab. In your case, only check Mute.

Thank you for your reply. I have been staring at the manual all morning.

What I failed to state is the 4-faders I want to mute are already muting other faders. Is this considered a sub-group? Can it still be done?

Thank you for your help...s

You can group faders already in another group.

It will cascade though:
If you mute this new group (that is mute only), all the groups those 4 faders belong to will mute too.

You can change that. You can take off mute as part of the attributes for those other groups the faders belong to.

Thank you for the help.

I'm a little confused. I tried creating a group of the four faders I want to mute and a fader I want to use to mute them, but I lost the ability to individually mute the faders that are muting other faders.

What I want to do is: I am using PT to upmix 2-channel music my 9.1.4 speaker system. What I'm looking to do is be able to switch between 9.1.4 and just the front stereo l/r.

Thank you...steve

Use Sends.

Pre Fader sends to your L/R. (Separate stereo feed out)

Main Outs for the distinct 9.1.4. Group the 9.1.4.

Only leave 1 open (9.1.4 group or the Stereo L/R channel)
