I have 4 tracks within my max patch; muting each track was easy, soloing each track was easy, but to select multiple solo's for each track is a little tricky (for me anyways..)
The picture shows the solo function I have tried to set up for this i.e. if solo track one is selected, tracks 2, 3, and 4 would be muted, which is fine if you just want one track soloed, but I need to set this up like a sequencing program where you can have several tracks soloed..
That image doesn’t reveal much… Anyway, the logic of the solo function (really two separate actions in a logical sense) requires that both the following things happen: the solo maintains (or remakes) the signal path in the soloed channel(s), and the signal path is broken in all non-soloed tracks. Here is one slightly annotated solution…

Thank you Spectro…!
I’m quite amazed that you did that it what was probably a few minutes.. I’m still trying to get my head around Max… don’t worry though, I have plenty of aspirin nearby =))
Apologies for the brief descriptive image…
Many MANY thanks for the help! :)
Hey.. What name/credits shall I put in my subpatch (your solo function) ?
hi , i bet that 80% of what ive learned about max patching is coming from this forum :D if i would like to make my patches "public" then i should credit the whole community for every project . how to do that ? :) … this forum should provide some kind of ranking as on http://stackoverflow.com/ . just a thought .
this community is very active and actually every help is like a gift ,very kind
Credit is given where credit is due ;)
I hope that most will agree with the following: if you learn something via the forum and adapt it for your own needs, then no citation is needed. If you use something gleaned from the forum without understanding it, then a citation is de rigueur. Said with absolutely no knowledge of copyright or plagiarism law. Just common decency. I ALWAYS record the name of anyone who solves a MaxMSP issue for me without me completely understanding the solution.
Kris and vaz said it better
