How do I cancel the leftover echos after I pause a track? I can mute the track but when I un-mute it's still there.
If you have a track with a long reverb or delay with lot of feedback which keeps playing after you press stop, you have to go to a empty place in the arrange window and press play.
You need to be more specific with your question.
Turn the feedback amount down.
I understand this question although don't know of a way to solve it. Basically the OP wants to bypass live processing in the channel strip when the playhead isn't running. . .
Turn the speakers off.
