A method I really like is one PG Music developers use in this situation in many of the BIAB demos. They select RT #1152-Silence first and alternate between it and any other selected RealTrack.

They replace RT#1152 with the Soloist RT chosen for the solo at the bar the solo is to begin. In the bar following the solo outro, replace the Soloist RT with RT#1152 again. This can be repeated anywhere in the chord chart for fills, a second solo and so forth.

PG Music developers have described this as a better option than using the mute command because Mute-Back to normal can result in abrupt, awkward intro's and endings. Sometimes a phrase is cutoff midway through the phrase itself. Using F5/Mute-Back to normal command is applied after the BIAB algorithm has selected audio for a track.

Using RT1152 prompts the BIAB to select different audio for intros and endings and is applied to the audio track as the BIAB algorithm selects audio for the track so the intros and endings are anticipated and audio selected is adjusted to reflect their occurrence throughout the song.

To recap:

1) Open mixer Rt. Click any of the legacy tracks (B/P/G/S/M/S)- Select RT#1152 to insert onto the selected track.
2) At any bar you want the Soloist instrument to play, open Bar Settings, Select RealTrack Button and insert the Soloist instrument
3) Repeat this to use RT#1152-Silence to mute and unmute so the Soloist RT plays only when you want it to.

Thanks. RT1152 is a great tool and very unique. A note about it that may interest you is it doesn't work reliably in RealBand or the VST Plug-in. In most cases, it's ignored. I have found if RT1152 is placed at the beginning of a track in RB, there's silence until the RT is replaced by another RT that produces audio. Otherwise, RT1152 is ignored.
