A/B tracks while playing.

I might not be using the correct lingo being that I got no search results form google. I would like to A/B two tracks while I am playing back. Lets say I have a bright dry snare on one track and a more full reverbed snare on another track. I would like to toggle between the two when playing back to see which one I prefer in the mix. It gets a bit more complex in that I really want to be able to do this for several tracks such as one set of Kick/Snare/Hat versus another. Another example would be if I was replacing a string sound and want to have the new sound match the old one as far as relative volume so I would toggle between the two while adjusting the volume of the new sound. I came up with one solution where I make a group of one set that include inverted versions of tracks I want to turn off and mute and unmute the group but am hoping for a more elegant solution.

Thanks

Using a MIDI controller (such as the Mackie MCU Pro) and using group,  using two fingers you could mute one group and unmute the other group in one move. With three fingers you could toggle A/B/C.

I don't see how more elegant that could be...

A simple way is to mute all tracks except your track A, then select (the muted)  track B and switch between the tracks using S (or clicking the tracks solo button) :)

Ah yes, reading the initial post again I see you're right (as always) :)
