    Help with strange Instrument Track Issue
    I encountered a very strange thing today. I spent my whole day mixing a song. Closed it and quit Logic7.2.3 to have a rest. When I came back to have a a last listen and about to bounce it, all the instrument tracks became silent. there was no any signal shown by the meter in any of the instrument tracks! however, when i play from keyboard, there was meter and i can hear the sound. but no meter and no sound when i playback the song. all my midi information are there, but it seems it doesn't generate any thing. i also checked environment and out put, no problems at all. all other sessions playback normally. i have been planning to send this beautiful piece to someone this weekend.. if anyone could kindly give me a hand, i will be more than grateful! thanks in advance! cx

    Did you try closing Logic, restarting and reloading your project ?

    It may seem basic, but are you sure there is no "solo" track ? Do you have any audio tracks and if so, do they play fine ?

    Hi I'm exsperiencing the same thing in logic 8 . In the sample editor when I can click the individual midi information I can hear the Motif . But when I play the song the motif tracks don't play and there kind of greyed out . When I programed the motif it was playing back fine but when I reopened the project the motif tracks wouldn't play

    nothing was on solo and the audio tracks all play fine. i solved the problem last weekend by going to the undo history and backed about 30 steps to get back the sound. it saved my session, but i still don't understand what could be the problem. will appreciate any suggestions. thanks a lot cx

Use the Mute tool to unmute the muted notes. If a region is greyed out in the arrange window, that's also because it is muted. Use the mute tool to unmute the muted region. All regions on a track can also be muted with the "M" mute button of the track header. Ok, that was a lot of "mute" words! Hope you understands!
