Track is "grayed" but not muted, no sound [SOLVED]

Like David already said, and the visual cue is the round colored dot. That means the region itself, not the track, is muted.

Hmm I have tried Control M and it doesn't solve the issue. It's strange because when regions are muted theres a small dot on the top left, this region doesn't have that dot.

 

When it doesn't have the dot, it means all the midi notes inside the midi regions are muted.

 

Double click the region, and in the Piano roll select all and hit M to unmute.

I was looking at the wrong region.

 

Then maybe the track is off: control-click the track header and choose Track Header Components > Show On/Off.

 

You, my friend, are god. lool this is like the 5th troubleshooting post you have answered for me, can't thank you enough! xD

I found this 7 year old thread and this solved it for me! David N. reached out from the past to help the future Logic users! :D

Update: I managed to make the problem go away—but not fix it—by quitting LPX and relaunching. Go figure. I think this is a bug.

 

Also, in case someone still needs it for future reference I have uploaded the attachment of how my LPX looked when it was giving me the problem (thanks to @JakobP for showing me how to attach).

========================================================

 

I know this is a very old thread but I hope someone still reads it.

 

I'm having the same problem. I was messing around (aka "learning") about live loops and somehow I managed to make all my regions grey and now nothing plays. Nothing is muted, All tracks are turned ON.

 

I'm pulling my hair out. haha. Someone, please tell me what's happening.

 

BTW: This is my first post here and I can't even figure out how to post an image. Clicking the "Insert Image" button above simply inserts two image tags. I must be really stupid today :D

That's Solo Mode, you can toggle it on/off with ctrl+s.

EDIT Or possibly Solo Lock Mode... :)

This is a bug. I just had the same problem. (Went to track header components and the tracks are already 'on' - so that didn't work. ) Saved my song exactly as it was in that all greyed-out state, shut down logic, reloaded song and it was fine.

No it's not a bug. This happens when you activate Live Loops, switch this little pair of triangles so it points to the left image.png.dad9f030ac7c5c50f551d72431102c4a.png (Live Loops play, not the time-linear Tracks), then make Live Loops invisible again (they may still play, so Logic can not automatically activate the Tracks again at this point). Closing and reopening the song will automatically switch back to the Tracks to avoid confusion because of the invisible Live Loops.

Solo mode behaves the same, i.e. closing and reopening disables solo mode...

Except in solo mode you can better recognize what’s going on (e.g. yellow playhead)

Indeed, but my reply was meant for @jkeat888

To be precise, if something else was soloed, the "Clear/Recall Solo" S button above the track headers would also be lit, not the case here... ;)

I just checked this and you are right polanoid - a big thankyou for that. I use a lot of key commands and do this quite quickly and think what I have been doing is accidentally turning on live loops , which greys out all my arrange page. Then its like... wtf? Cheers again! =] JK
