Record-enable should toggle track MIDI Input

I thought this was a bug, but after interactions in the bug-report forums, I think this is just something that was passed-over.

In most DAW's I've used, the record enable button enables and disables the track's MIDI Input when toggled. In other words, MIDI Input is off when the record arm/enable button is off, and on when it is on.

This will allow users to use external synthesizers/gear with BM3 and use only a single external MIDI controller to control them all, all the while looping/recording in BM3.

I think this would be a super simple feature to put in. (ex: when track's record-enable is on, MIDI Input is allowed. When it is off, MIDI Input is off). And it can also be an optional setting.


  • Yeah it definitely needs to be optional.

    A three dot color toggle perhaps? Grey, no recording, no input. Red, input and recording. Blue, input only, no recording. I know it is not 'intuitive' (pfft) but it would work great for me. :)

  • Leave the record button as is, add a "Monitor" exactly the same as recording audio, simple and already in use, so logical.

    Feels to me like it should be in song view and not mixer.

    It can easily be in both, and should be in both, a simple monitor button (speaker icon ?)
    Should be there for audio and MIDI and be in mixer and arranger.

    To be fair i think the monitor how it is now in the mixer is terrible, change the mono and solo to M S the same as the arranger, monitor as a speaker icon, it will feel way way less bunched up/cluttered.

  • A monitor button would be good too~ Either would work for me.
