Device Overview

Name/Version: MUDA - mute to disable all devices in that track 1.0
Author: michaelterren  
Description: This utility device will switch off all devices on a track when you mute that track. Similarly, it will re-enable them when you un-mute the track. This can be handy for all sorts of CPU-saving reasons.

This device was originally posted as part of a series of blog posts about programming in Max for Live at Noisemaker Academy, which has since deprecated.

so cool

Super simple, super useful, super efficient. What a great little device. Immediately made it into my user library.

This is such a great utility device and I've added it immediately to my default audio an midi track.

This for the Solo function as well would be killer.

I love this, thank you. Feature request: if put on a group it will turn off everything inside the group

@andstrat: Yeah, I think making a version that'll turn off a track's devices if another track is solo'd would be feasible and quite easy. I'll have a go this week.

@moserobert: I'd like this too, but it is substantially more difficult. Max for Live can detect a group track, and if a track is grouped, but can't easily find a relationship between the two, so there's no way to tell Max to detect the grouped tracks inside a group track. It should work fine for tracks with Instrument Racks and Drum Racks, but for now, you'll have to mute each track individually.
