Often times during the production of a song, the keyboard player might encounter a situation in which a part has been recorded but the producer asks if certain notes could be muted, without being deleted only to audition how it would sound. Studio One 4 gives the users the possibility to make this happen by accessing the Mute/Unmute Events option from the Musical Functions.

This tutorial will present a step-by-step guide on how to mute and unmute MIDI events in Studio One 4.
