[in menu Modify/Volume operations]

This operation mutes a MIDI voice by one of four available methods. This is useful to remove parts that real musicians play live in a band or for muting voices that are replaced by karaoke singers.

Tracks:
Choose track if you want to mute all channels in a certain track or if you want to mute a certain channel only in one track.  
 
Channels:
Select one or more channels that should be muted.  
 
Hint: If you select only tracks then any channels on this track are used for mute operation.
Hint: If you select only channels then any tracks that contain these channels are used for mute operation.
Hint: If you select tracks and channels then only those tracks are used that contain one of the given channels.
 
Method:
·Delete all events       deletes all commands on the matching channels and tracks  
·Silent (volume 0)       sets volume of matching channels to 0  
·Delete notes      deletes only the notes on the matching channels and tracks  
·Silent notes (low velocity)   sets velocity values of the notes on the matching channels and tracks to a low value (1)  


Hint: Silent (volume 0) method is useful if you want to sing a muted melody (karaoke) and still need the notes displayed on screen with a sequencer or a special MIDI player.

Hint:
Delete notes method is useful if you want to play these deleted notes self with original settings.

Hint: The operation can't be undone so you need to keep your original MIDI files if you want the muted tracks back.

Hint: With the option Remove all commands you can delete a channel completely.
