Solo or mute a track in Push

I am pulling my hair out although I have only had the push a few days. I have looked in the ableton live 9 reference manual but cannot see how to mute or solo a track when using push.


I hazard a guess its really simple but whatever i do just doesn't work.


there is quite a learning curve so assistance would be appreciated.

    I had this same problem, and the same hair-pulling. This coundn't be that complicated. The answer had to be right in front of me. And it was.

    To mute a track, you simply turn it on or off by clicking on the track number on the right hand side of the Arrangement view. There is no mute button. Track number is green if it's on, grey if it's off. And I don't mean the track number to the immediate right of the track, where you can rename it. I mean in the 3rd window over, where the record enable button is.

    As for muting regions (as they're called in Logic) in Arrangement view....still working on that. I may just use Logic for recording audio and then import. But there's got to be a mute or silence region/s command around here somewhere......

    Ok this is how to do this:


    in session view, click volume button, then the solo button then the second row of pads from the top will allow toggle of tracks. Sme principle for mute and stop.

    To mute or soloing a clip you have to press the session button (one of the buttons on the right). You'll see the illuminated pads that represent your clips. Hold "Select" (lower right corner) to select (silently) the clip you want to mute or solo and then press the pad corresponding to the clip you want to solo or mute. Then press solo or mute. The solo or mute buttons will change colors. To reverse the mute or solo just press mute or solo again.

    You can also just hold the pad corresponding to the clip you want to solo or mute and just press solo or mute
