voice muted in playback is not muted in mp3 file

• Mar 16, 2019 - 11:37


This is my first post ever... I tried to search for this topic, but couldn't find anything, so I'm posting.

I'm using Windows 10. I have a score with 2 voices on a track. When I mute just 1 voice in Mixer, its muted in playback. However, when I export to mp3 I can still hear the voice that is supposed to be muted. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

You don't do anything wrong!
Workaround: select all notes in the voice (rightclick...select...more...), in inspector uncheck "Playback", then export to mp3.
Maybe there is a simplier solution?

The mute button was working on voices in the playback. It just wasn't being reflected in the mp3. I can't see what you did to the file. The Mixer still has only 2 channels SA and TB. I can see there is text that says "t/b" above the tenor/bass line. I didn't notice anything else that has changed.

Hey it worked! That's a tricky thing to have the voices linked up to a text field that way. Thanks!

By the way, its taking a way, way longer time to export to mp3 than it usually does. Like 5 minutes each time. This really lengthens the time I'm spending on making practice files for my group. (4 voices x 2 speeds x mute or enhanced = 16 files - will take me 80 minutes). Is that because its parsing out the voices?

I agree that muting voice in the mixer should mute it for mp3 export as well. The workaround is possible and what I did in 2.x when I wanted to export only one voice from a staff with multiple voices, but while we have the upgraded mixer, why not use it to make life easier?
