Why do drum rack sends still output to the standard sends even if the master fader is down or muted?
If I configure the drum rack to use the send to the standard returns. The master fader does not affect the level that the individual drums send to the effect.
So when I mute or lower the volume of the drum rack i still hear the reverb.
Is there a specific reason why it was implemented this way?
Grouped tracks do not share this same problem. The master fader /mute on a group controls the send amount on the individual tracks.
I'm a little confused as to why these two would behave differently.
