OK, thanks, papi61.
Here is the "Listen Bus" behavior in Cubase Control Room I like:
When the "L" button is clicked on a track in Cubase while the project is playing, the track continues to play at normal volume, but all other tracks are lowered by "X" dB, where "X" is able to be entered (e.g., 20 dB).
This is kind of like an "incomplete mute" button - allows the track to be heard in the context of the full project playing, but with emphasis on the track in question because the other tracks are lowered in volume.
Well, with TotalMix FX you have that kind of control on your PHYSICAL inputs (think of TotalMix FX as the control room section of a traditional mixer), but if it's Cubase tracks you're talking about, obviously anything that happens to them has to be done within Cubase. Like I said, nothing prevents you from using both at the same time, if there is a particular feature you need from ControlRoom. I just don't have that particular need. Anything I need I can find in Cubase, without going to the ControlRoom. And the tracks I need to modify (as in providing zero-latency FX, change the volume etc.) are only the physical inputs that I can control with TotalMix FX.
