excuse the bump, but this did not gain any traction and/or dialogue on github, where it might be ill-fitted as well, as it was as much of a question as it was flagging a potential bug - but without dialogue, I have no idea which of the 2 options would be suitable for this… i.e. a reply that this is intended as is, or a solution for the bug or even enhancing the feature set of Console…
or here’s the text too:
"This might be known/intended/by-design (yet, I could not find a similar issue on github)… but I found it odd, so I thought I’d mention it.
I did purchased VCV Console recently (to support Andrew & VCV in general, and with the hopes that soon/one day we’ll have midi-learn… so I can map console to old midi/hardware bits catching dust), and only now got to play around with it.
So, MASTER on Console, on the very right has two Mute switches, one each for L & R channels. These work and mute the left & right channel audio as expected. But the Master Meter still keeps firing on both channels visually if either or both of them are switched to mute. I would have expected the Master Meter ‘LEDs’ to not fire on a given strip if it’s set to Muted (*).
Windows 10, 64bit.
Nevermind if this is known/intended/by-design…
Also (as a user comment that doesn’t warrant its’ own thread… ) - would be nice to have (optional) channel / VU strip on each of the 8 channels of the Console.
ps * or, visually fire in greyscale colours only, to communicate a) that it’s muted, and b) what the muted signal load is on the channel (this might be possible easily, and I would find this quite neat & better suited than showing no visual feedback at all on the channel strip/VU meter when muted)"
