Hidden Solos

(First time? See Writing a good feature request)

Solo’ed and Muted tracks are hidden when groups are collapsed, so you have to go hunting. Just needs an icon in the group headers.

What problem(s) would this feature resolve?

I think bitwig opens projects with the groups closed. In any case where you’ve got a lot of tracks it can be a pita to find where the solo is.

How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?

Is there already an alternative way to achieve this on Bitwig?

Could it be implemented using Bitwig components or APIs, without Bitwig team’s support?

Could it be provided by a VST or something else reasonably integrated with Bitwig?

Are there other products that offer this feature?

Relevant links (optional)


I mentioned this a few years ago during a google beta thing, it was ignored. Ableton has a solution for this. On the group header, a square is half coloured diagonally to indicate something muted / or solo’d within the collapsed group. It’s late, I’ve had a beer, but there is a solution if my description is off. :smiley:
