No mute button on screen

Excellent videos series. So I thought I could give something back: It's about the video: Maschine 2 Explained/Arrangement View/2m07s: Jeremy mentions it's too bad there is no mute button. However: right-clicking on the group label (A1 etc., so left of the colored stripe divider) in the Arranger solo's a track, while left-clicking enables/disables (mutes) the track. So no need to click any option/control button on the keyboard, it can be done by mouse only. If that is what you meant here?

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started in Music at the age of 10, attending a conservatory and studying 5 years of guitar, voice and music theory. After graduating high school and attending college, my focus shifted to deejaying in nightclubs and hosting my own college radio show for 4 years. During this time I also learnt how to use drum machines, synthesizers, music software and other MIDI equipment, which led to producing local singers and rappers. Eventually I began debuting my productions on my radio show and also deejayed for my acts live on stage at nightclubs and concert venues.

2. What training have you had?

5 years of conservatory training, achieving a Royal Schools of Music London certificate in Music Theory. And then 2 years of Recorded Music Production and Engineering (Diploma course) at Trebas Institute , Montreal, Quebec.

3. When did you get into recording?

Aside from making 4 track bedroom demos for my radio show, my first serious venture into recording was in 1993, starting with radio and TV advertising jobs, doing 15 and 30 second spots, working with vocal talent and doing my own voiceovers. Soon afterwards I began producing commercial Reggae/Pop/RnB records for labels such as Island Records, as well as my own independent label.

4. People you have worked with/for?

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I've done guest lecturing on music production and the music business for various tertiary institutions and organizations such as Red Bull Music Academy (Seattle) Miami Dade College, University of the West Indies, Trebas Institute (Toronto) and for the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). I have a very storied background in the music industry, which gives me a wide breadth of experience to talk about...And it seems like people enjoy listening :-)

Rated 1.0 out of 5 by from Groove 3 training rocks - This training does not. Very disappointing. Basically walks through naming all features functions and buttons - but doesn't present features from a conceptual or workflow perspective. Context is all over the place. Foundations are completely glossed over or dismissed. I've really appreciated all of the training on this site - this was by far the least valuable. Don't bother with this one - just read the manual. Groove 3 rocks - this training does not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Tutorial but... I thoroughly enjoyed this tutorial and it helped answer so many open questions that I had. The detail and easy to follow instructions make it seem so simple and it is. I know that this tutorial should show the diversity of Maschine but it does make one frustrated when the demonstrations are not all conducted with the supplied software that Maschine comes with (eg. Music and plugins). Other than that, it took my knowledge of the Maschine to another level at an affordable price. Thank you so much and keep up the good work.
